## Arguments:

**DataY** represents the Y Data array.

**DataX** (optional) represents the X Data array.

**NewDataX** (optional) represents the X data array, in which the values are recalculated.

**FunctionType** (optional). If FunctionType = 0, functions in the form y = m^x will be calculated. Otherwise, y = b*m^x functions will be calculated.

In the LibreOffice Calc functions, parameters marked as "optional" can be left out only when no parameter follows. For example, in a function with four parameters, where the last two parameters are marked as "optional", you can leave out parameter 4 or parameters 3 and 4, but you cannot leave out parameter 3 alone.
