Nice catch.
Oasis says it's "greater then"

MS Office says "less than" in function title description

and then it says "greater than" in function description

LO says "less than".
Would be nice if someone could actually use this formula and say which is true. :)

If anyone could try out this weird function and let us know what the results are then the documentation and translators teams might be able to describe it correctly. So far Oasis doesn't seem to know what it does and MS can't decide what their equivalent function does either!

It hardly necessary to do any testing: cumulative probability distributions start at zero and finish at one. Zero is always going to be less than any criterion value, so any result is going to correspond to the start of the distribution and be trivial. The original correspondent must be right: "greater than" is surely correct?
