Description Stanislav Horacek 2014-05-25 16:48:45 UTC
If you find NORM.S.DIST function (added in 4.3) in the Function Wizard, you will see the following description:
"The values of the standard normal cumulative distribution."

The second parameter of this function specifies whether the returned value is cumulative or not, so the description should be generalized as:
"The values of the standard normal distribution."
