Formula fields are read-only fields that are defined by a calculated expression. It’s the most similar thing of an Excel formula that you can find in Salesforce and it doesn’t require strong knowledge to set one. As a read-only field, you cannot assign values to it. That should not be an issue in most of the times, but it could cause you problems when you want to test an apex piece of code.
