A complex number is a number that can be expressed in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers and i is the imaginary unit, where i2 = −1.

Examples
---------

6720000000 + 4i

1991230000000 + 6i

18.7 + 2i

6720000000 + 1991230000000i

0.0000000000345 - 0.34562222222222i

1. Do the current excel version allows us to enter complex number data in cells ?.

Data supported are : Number,Currency, Date, Time, Percentage, Fraction, Scientific,Text, Special,Custom

2. Can it be useful to enter Complex Number Data in Excel Spreadsheet ?.

3. Functions, Formulas in Excel can then be used for adding, subtracting,multiplication,division,power etc

ANSWER: Hi, in excel you can work with complex numbers have an amazing engineering formulas formulas you want to use.
are:

COMPLEX Converts real and imaginary coefficients into a complex number IMABS Returns the absolute value (modulus) of a complex number
IMAGINARY Returns the imaginary coefficient of a complex number
IMARGUMENT Returns the argument theta, an angle expressed in radians
IMCONJUGATE Returns the complex conjugate of a complex number
IMCOS Returns the cosine of a complex number
IMDIV Returns the quotient of two complex numbers
IMEXP Returns the exponential value of a complex number
IMLN Returns the natural logarithm (natural log) of a complex number
IMLOG10 Returns the base 10 logarithm of a complex number
IMLOG2 Returns the base-2 logarithm of a complex number
IMPOWER Returns a complex number raised to an integer power
IMPRODUCT Returns the product of complex numbers 2-29
IMREAL Returns the real coefficient of a complex number
IMSIN Returns the sine of a complex number
IM.RAIZ2 Returns the square root of a complex number
IMSUB Returns the difference between two complex numbers
IMSUM Returns the sum of complex numbers

In excel are written as either rectangular or polar form

Rectangular form. Is written directly, like text, in the form of coordinates using, either the letter i or j. Example: 2 + 0.4 i j can also be used.

If it is negative you must insert 'apostrophe because it makes excel recognizes it as such' -2 + 0.4 i

In polar form, use two boxes one for the module and one for the argument.
example

Module: IMABS (A1)

Angle: IMARGUMENT (A1)

hi excel has many graphics and engineering functions, there are many engineering graphics.
If you want to use numbers and graphs to complex numbers I advise any math program, excel manages engineering data but do not know if it's as good as a specific program of mathematics.
