1. What is the main difference between the comma notation form of SUMPRODUCT (=SUMPRODUCT(Argument1, Argument2) and the multiplication notation form of SUMPRODUCT (=SUMPRODUCT(Argument1 * Argument2)?
The comma notation sums elements of ranges, whereas the multiplication notation multiplies these same elements
The comma notation only allows cross-multiplication between ranges containing only one row or only one column, whereas the multiplication form allows a form of matrix algebra
There is no difference

All non-numerical values are treated as zeros except errors
All non-numerical values are treated as zeros
