If the first character of a cell is an equals sign (=), then the cell contains a formula.

The equal sign in Excel is used to start a formula. All formulas begin with the equals sign. It can also be used for comparing things. In the following example, the first equals sign is starting the formula and the second one is comparing cell A2 and B2: =A2=B2
