How to enter spreadsheet formula while in RPN mode?
I have tried with and without single quotes to enter a formula in a spreadsheet cell and continually get the always informative 'Error: Syntax Error' when the Home screen is set to RPN input. While with the input set to algebraic it works without error.
Example: set the contents of A1 to 42, then attempt to set A2 using '=A1' [either with or without the quotes]

Use the shifted ( ) function to insert ''. Then type your expression inside of the to quote the arguments. TW Although I work for HP, the views and opinions I post here are my own.

Thanks Tim, sorry rgallier  didn't realize you meant to include the quotes. Your solution did work.
