Syntax and Description of the DVAR Excel Function

I am using the following syntax for the DVAR Excel Function and I am getting a #NAME? error: =DVAR(A1:A50,0,1,1) I have done some research and tried to update the syntax for the DVAR function using the following syntax but I am still getting a #NAME? error: =DVAR("A1:A50,0,1,1") Does anyone have any ideas as to why I am getting a #NAME? error? Thank you in advance. A: You are missing a ")", I think that's the problem.
