Basic Description

The Excel Asinh function calculates the inverse hyperbolic sine of a supplied number.

The syntax of the function is:

ASINH( number )

Where the number argument is the real number that you want to calculate the inverse hyperbolic sine of.

Excel Asinh Function Examples

The following spreadsheet shows the Excel Asinh Function, used to calculate the inverse hyperbolic sine of three different values:

20=ASINH( A2 )
3-0.5=ASINH( A3 )
42=ASINH( A4 )

Further details and examples of the Excel Asinh function are provided on the Microsoft Office website.

Asinh Function Error

If you get an error from the Excel Asinh Function, this is likely to be the #VALUE! error:

Common Error
#VALUE!-Occurs if the supplied number argument is not recognized as a numeric value.
