The ABS function in Microsoft Excel is a function that returns the absolute value of a number. The absolute value of a number is the number’s distance from zero on a number line. For example, the absolute value of 5 is 5, and the absolute value of -5 is also 5.

To use the ABS function, follow these steps:

- Open Microsoft Excel and select the cell where you want the absolute value to appear.
- Type the following formula into the cell: =ABS(number)
- Replace “number” with the number that you want to find the absolute value of. For example, to find the absolute value of -5, you would type: =ABS(-5)
- Press Enter to see the result.

The ABS function is a very useful tool for finding the absolute value of a number. You can use it to analyze data, compare values, and make informed decisions based on the distance of a number from zero.
