Google Sheets ATANH Function

This post will guide you how to use Google Sheets ATANH function with syntax and examples.


The Google Sheets ATANH function returns the inverse hyperbolic tangent of a given number. So you can use the ATANH function to calculate the inverse hyperbolic tangent for a number. The returned result is a numeric value.

The ATANH function is a build-in function in Google Sheets and it is categorized as a MATH function.


The syntax of the ATANH function is as below:

= ATANH (number)

Where the ATANH function arguments is:

  • number -This is a required argument. A real number between 1 and -1, but it should exclude the values of -1 and 1.


  • If the number argument is greater than or equal to 1, the ATANH function will return #NUM! Error. If the number argument is less than or equal to -1, the ATANH function will return #NUM! Error.
  • If the supplied number is not a numeric value, the ATANH function will get the #VALUE! Error。
