Confidence Level (B4) The confidence level determines the probability used to set the range for the adjusted prediction. Anomaly Detection (B5) The application calculates the probability that the actual value for the day is an anomaly.

This will let us calculate the probability that the current error is too large. Using the value returned by the STANDARDIZE function, the formula in D26, which is =NORMSDIST(D25), gives the portion of the distribution between the mean and the value in D23. 32 standard deviations from the mean. A forecast can be high or low; therefore, the distribution of errors has two tails. 5)*2, gives the final answer. 5 because the NORMSDIST function only considers one tail of the distribution, and multiply by two because the error can occur at either end of the distribution.
