**Microsoft Excel** is a very effective software. Excelâ€™s tools and functions enable us to perform an infinite number of operations on a dataset. We must use the sigma sign to express math and statistics in Excel. **Sigma** is the **Greek** alphabetâ€™s eighteenth letter. The lowercase letter sigma (**Ïƒ**) denotes the standard deviation in math and statistics. In math, the capital letter sigma (**Î£**) represents to sum it up. This article offers eight straightforward approaches for adding the **Sigma** **Symbol**. Therefore, utilize these **8 **easy ways to insert** Sigma Symbol** in **Excel**.

## 8 Easy Ways to Insert Sigma Symbol in Excel

As an example, letâ€™s look at a sample dataset. For example, the following dataset has **Sigma** and **Symbol** columns. We will use each of the eight ways to display the **sigma** signÂ **in** **Excel**. Also, I have yet to say Iâ€™ve been working with the **Microsoft Excel 365** version for this post. Still, you can use any other edition that makes your life easier.

### 1. Embed Sigma Symbol from Insert Tab
