In This Topic
Sets the formula for a specified cell.
Syntax
```'Declaration

Public Sub SetFormula( _
ByVal row As Integer, _
ByVal column As Integer, _
ByVal value As String _
) ```
```'Usage

Dim instance As SheetView
Dim row As Integer
Dim column As Integer
Dim value As String

instance.SetFormula(row, column, value)```
```public void SetFormula(
int row,
int column,
string value
)```

#### Parameters

row
Row index of the cell
column
Column index of the cell
value
Object that contains the formula for the cell
Remarks

Set this property to a mathematical expression made up of cell references, operators, and functions (either provided or custom functions you define). For a list of the operators and functions you can use in formulas, refer to the Spread for .NET Formula Reference.

The Spread component can use absolute or relative cell references. You define the cell reference style for the spreadsheet by using the ReferenceStyle property. The formula cannot contain both absolute and relative row or column references.

The following table contains examples of valid formulas:

Function Description
SUM(A1:A10) Totals the values of rows 1 through 10 in the first column
PI( )*C6 p times the value in cell C6
A# * G# Value in cell in column A, this row, multiplied by the value in cell in column G, this row
(A1 + B1) * C1 Adds the values in the first two cells and multiplies the result by the value in the third cell
IF(A1>5, A1*2, A1*3) If the contents of cell A1 are greater than 5, then multiply the contents of cell A1 by 2, else multiply the contents of cell A1 by 3

Example
This example gets the formula that is set for the specified cell.
```FarPoint.Web.Spread.SheetView sv;
string s;
sv.SetFormula(0, 0, "4*4");
s = sv.GetFormula(0, 0);
Response.Write("The formula for the cell is a " + s);
```
```Dim sv As FarPoint.Web.Spread.SheetView
Dim s As String
