What does an Excel formula mean

What does "@" mean in Excel formulas?

Hello knowing!

I have now "worked through" all the Excel forums, MS Office tools and experiences of my colleagues known to me, unfortunately without success. I ask for help.
I just need a general description of what an @ sign does directly in an Excel formula.
e.g .:
= [@ [TOTAL

What does @ mean here? I cannot find a functional description anywhere. Is it a reference to a custom (hidden) list? A reference to the column headers of another worksheet?

I have a concrete Excel table, but I am not allowed to put it in here (hot data). Unfortunately, I have not succeeded in 'generalizing' this table. That is why I am simply hoping for a functional description of this @ -sign. That would help me a lot.

(What I already know: In "Form cells" => User-defined formatting, type "@ *." Can automatically fill a cell up to the end of the cell)
