A method for calculating the Poisson CDF (cumulative distribution function) is presented. The method avoids computer underflow and overflow during the process. The computer program uses this technique to calculate the Poisson CDF for arbitrary inputs. An algorithm that determines the Poisson parameter required to yield a specified value of the CDF is presented
