Can any please tell me what '{' , '}' means in excel formula
I am looking at a formula as, {=IF($s93= "", "-", MIN(if(KeyABC = $S93, DealStartDates, "n/a")))}
Now if I click inside the formula and press enter. The '{ }' brackets are not therd and formula ends up as
=IF($s93= "", "-", MIN(if(KeyABC = $S93, DealStartDates, "n/a")))

Which doesnt calculate to what it should.
I am quiet sure its something simple but being not very experienced user I dont understand it.
It would be great if some one could help me out with it.
