The IF function is one of the most popular and useful functions in Excel. You use an IF statement to ask Excel to test a condition and to return one value if the condition is met, and another value if the condition is not met.
In this tutorial, we are going to learn the syntax and common usages of Excel IF function, and then will have a closer look at formula examples that will hopefully prove helpful both to beginners and experienced Excel users.
The IF function is one of Excel's logical functions that evaluates a certain condition and returns the value you specify if the condition is TRUE, and another value if the condition is FALSE.
The syntax for Excel IF is as follows:
As you see, the IF function has 3 arguments, but only the first one is obligatory, the other two are optional.
For example, your logical test can be expressed as or B1="sold", B1<12/1/2014, B1=10 or B1>10.
For example, the following formula will return the text "Good" if a value in cell B1 is greater than 10: =IF(B1>10, "Good")
For example, if you add "Bad" as the third parameter to the above formula, it will return the text "Good" if a value in cell B1 is greater than 10, otherwise, it will return "Bad": =IF(B1>10, "Good", "Bad")
Though the last two parameters of the IF function are optional, your formula may produce unexpected results if you don't know the underlying logic beneath the hood.
If the value_if_true argument is omitted in your Excel IF formula (i.e. there is only a comma following logical_test), the IF function returns zero (0) when the condition is met. Here is an example of such a formula: =IF(B1>10,, "Bad")
In case you don't want your Excel IF statement to display any value when the condition is met, enter double quotes ("") in the second parameter, like this: =IF(B1>10, "", "Bad")
. Technically, in this case the formula returns an empty string, which is invisible to the user but perceivable to other Excel functions.
The following screenshot demonstrates the above approaches in action, and the second one seems to be more sensible:
If you don't care what happens when the specified condition is not met, you can omit the 3rd parameter in your Excel IF formulas, which will result in the following.
If the logical test evaluates to FALSE and the value_if_false
parameter is omitted (there is just a closing bracket after the value_if_true
argument), the IF function returns the logical value FALSE. It's a bit unexpected, isn't it? Here is an example of such a formula: =IF(B1>10, "Good")
Putting a comma after the value_if_true argument forces your IF statement to return 0, which doesn't make much sense either: =IF(B1>10, "Good",)
And again, the most reasonable approach is to put "" in the third argument, in this case you will have empty cells when the condition is not met: =IF(B1>10, "Good", "")
For your Excel IF formula to display the logical values TRUE and FALSE when the specified condition is met and not met, respectively, type TRUE in the value_if_true
argument. The value_if_false
parameter can be FALSE or omitted. Here's a formula example:
=IF(B1>10, TRUE, FALSE)
or
=IF(B1>10, TRUE)
If you want "TRUE" and "FALSE" to be usual text values, enclose them in "double quotes". In this case, the returned values will be aligned left and formatted as General. No Excel formula will recognize such "TRUE" and "FALSE" text as logical values.
Instead of returning certain values, you can get your IF formula to test the specified condition, perform a corresponding math operation and return a value based on the result. You do this by using arithmetic operators or other Excel functions in the value_if_true
and /or value_if_false
arguments. Here are just a couple of formula examples:
Example 1: =IF(A1>B1, C3*10, C3*5)
The formula compares the values in cells A1 and B1, and if A1 is greater than B1, it multiplies the value in cell C3 by 10, by 5 otherwise.
Example 2: =IF(A1<>B1, SUM(A1:D1), "")
The formula compares the values in cells A1 and B1, and if A1 is not equal to B1, the formula returns the sum of values in cells A1:D1, an empty string otherwise.
Now that you are familiar with the Excel IF function's syntax, let's look at some formula examples and learn how to use IF as a worksheet function in Excel.
The use of the IF function with numeric values is based on using different comparison operators to express your conditions. You will find the full list of logical operators illustrated with formula examples in the table below.
Condition  Operator  Formula Example  Description 
Greater than  >  =IF(A2>5, "OK",) 
If the number in cell A2 is greater than 5, the formula returns "OK"; otherwise 0 is returned. 
Less than  <  =IF(A2<5, "OK", "") 
If the number in cell A2 is less than 5, the formula returns "OK"; an empty string otherwise. 
Equal to  =  =IF(A2=5, "OK", "Wrong number") 
If the number in cell A2 is equal to 5, the formula returns "OK"; otherwise the function displays "Wrong number". 
Not equal to  <>  =IF(A2<>5, "Wrong number", "OK") 
If the number in cell A2 is not equal to 5, the formula returns "Wrong number "; otherwise  "OK". 
Greater than or equal to  >=  =IF(A2>=5, "OK", "Poor") 
If the number in cell A2 is greater than or equal to 5, the formula returns "OK"; otherwise  "Poor". 
Less than or equal to  <=  =IF(A2<=5, "OK", "") 
If the number in cell A2 is less than or equal to 5, the formula returns "OK"; an empty string otherwise. 
The screenshot below demonstrates the IF formula with the "Greater than or equal to" logical operator in action:
Generally, you write an Excel if statement with text using either "equal to" or "not equal to" operator, as demonstrated in a couple of IF examples that follow.
Like the overwhelming majority of Excel functions, IF is caseinsensitive by default. What it means for you is that logical tests for text values do not recognize case in usual IF formulas.
For example, the following IF formula returns either "Yes" or "No" based on the "Delivery Status" (column C):
=IF(C2="delivered", "No", "Yes")
Translated into the plain English, the formula tells Excel to return "No" if a cell in column C contains the word "Delivered", otherwise return "Yes". At that, it does not really matter how you type the word "Delivered" in the logical_test argument  "delivered", "Delivered", or "DELIVERED". Nor does it matter whether the word "Delivered" is in lowercase or uppercase in the source table, as illustrated in the screenshot below.
Another way to achieve exactly the same result is to use the "not equal to" operator and swap the value_if_true and value_if_false arguments:
=IF(C2<>"delivered", "Yes", "No")
If you want a casesensitive logical test, use the IF function in combination with EXACT that compares two text strings and returns TRUE if the strings are exactly the same, otherwise it returns FALSE. The EXACT functions is casesensitive, though it ignores formatting differences.
You use IF with EXACT in this way:
=IF(EXACT(C2,"DELIVERED"), "No", "Yes")
Where C is the column to which your logical test applies and "DELIVERED" is the casesensitive text value that needs to be matched exactly.
Naturally, you can also use a cell reference rather than a text value in the 2^{nd} argument of the EXACT function, if you want to.
If you want to base your condition on a partial match rather than exact match, an immediate solution that comes to mind is using wildcard characters (* or ?) in the logical_test argument. However, this simple and obvious approach won't work. Many Excel functions accept wildcards, but regrettably IF is not one of them.
A solution is to use IF in combination with ISNUMBER and SEARCH (caseinsensitive) or FIND (casesensitive) functions.
For example, if No action is required both for "Delivered" and "Out for delivery" items, the following formula will work a treat:
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("deliv",C2)), "No", "Yes")
We've used the SEARCH function in the above formula since a caseinsensitive match suits better for our data. If you want a casesensitive match, simply replace SEARCH with FIND in this way:
At first sight, it may seem that IF formulas for dates are identical to IF statements for numeric and text values that we've just discussed. Regrettably, it is not so.
Unlike many other Excel functions, IF cannot recognize dates and interprets them as mere text strings, which is why you cannot express your logical test simply as >"11/19/2014" or >11/19/2014. Neither of the above arguments is correct, alas.
To make the Excel IF function recognize a date in your logical test as a date, you have to wrap it in the DATEVALUE function, like this DATEVALUE("11/19/2014"). The complete IF formula may take the following shape:
=IF(C2<DATEVALUE("11/19/2014"), "Completed", "Coming soon")
As illustrated in the screenshot below, this IF formula evaluates the dates in column C and returns "Completed" if a game was played before Nov11. Otherwise, the formula returns "Coming soon".
In case you base your condition on the current date, you can use the TODAY() function in the logical_test argument of your IF formula. For example:
=IF(C2<DATEVALUE("11/19/2014"), "Completed", "Coming soon")
Naturally, the Excel IF function can understand more complex logical tests, as demonstrated in the next example.
Suppose, you want to mark only the dates that occur in more than 30 days from now. In this case, you can express the logical_test argument as A2TODAY()>30. The complete IF formula may be as follows:
=IF(A2TODAY()>30, "Future date", "")
To point out past dates that occurred more than 30 days ago, you can use the following IF formula:
=IF(TODAY()A2>30, "Past date", "")
If you want to have both indications in one column, you will need to use a nested IF function like this:
=IF(A2TODAY()>30, "Future date", IF(TODAY()A2>30, "Past date", ""))
If you want to somehow mark your data based on a certain cell(s) being empty or not empty, you can either:
The table below explains the difference between these two approaches and provides formula example.
Logical test  Description  Formula Example  
Blank cells  =""  Evaluates to TRUE if a specified cell is visually empty, including cells with zero length strings.
Otherwise, evaluates to FALSE. 
=IF(A1="", 0, 1)
Returns 0 if A1 is visually blank. Otherwise returns 1. If A1 contains an empty string, the formula returns 0. 
ISBLANK()  Evaluates to TRUE is a specified cell contains absolutely nothing  no formula, no empty string returned by some other formula.
Otherwise, evaluates to FALSE. 
=IF(ISBLANK(A1), 0, 1)
Returns the results identical to the above formula but treats cells with zero length strings as nonblank cells. That is, if A1 contains an empty string, the formula returns 1. 

Nonblank cells  <>""  Evaluates to TRUE if a specified cell contains some data. Otherwise, evaluates to FALSE.
Cells with zero length strings are considered blank. 
=IF(A1<>"", 1, 0)
Returns 1 if A1 is nonblank; otherwise returns 0. If A1 contains an empty string, the formula returns 0. 
ISBLANK()=FALSE  Evaluates to TRUE if a specified cell is not empty. Otherwise, evaluates to FALSE.
Cells with zero length strings are considered nonblank. 
=IF(ISBLANK(A1)=FALSE, 0, 1)
Works the same as the above formula, but returns 1 if A1 contains an empty string. 
The following example demonstrates blank / nonblank logical test in action.
Suppose, you have a date in column C only if a corresponding game (column B) was played. Then, you can use either of the following IF formulas to mark completed games:
=IF($C2<>"", "Completed", "")
=IF(ISBLANK($C2)=FALSE, "Completed", "")
Since there are no zerolength strings in our table, both formulas will return identical results:
Hopefully, the above examples have helped you understand the general logic of the IF function. In practice, however, you would often want a single IF formula to check multiple conditions, and our next article will show you how to tackle this task. In addition, we will also explore nested IF functions, array IF formulas, IFEFFOR and IFNA functions and more. Please stay tuned and thank you for reading!

Hi,
I'm trying to write a formula to say that if cell F4 says 'yes', to then remove the fill colour from cell E4. I am having trouble doing this. Can anyone do this? Thanks in advance :)
You don't need a formula  look at Conditional Formatting>Highlight Cell Rules
I have two worksheet. i.e,Worksheet A and worksheet B. A11 of Worksheet A contains FR189X and B6 of Worksheet B is FR189. Likewise I have multiple rows in Worksheet B. I want to compare A11 of Worksheet A with column B of Worksheet B, if its equal then copy the value present on column F of Worksheet B into Worksheet A.
I am using below codes and its working when A11 is same with B6.
=IF(LEFT(A11,5)=[Book1.xlsx]Sheet1!$B$6,VLOOKUP(LEFT(A11,5),[Book1.xlsx]Sheet1!$B:$S,18,0),"")
But its not working when I want to replace A11 of Worksheet A with B7 of Worksheet B. Can you please help?
Is there a way to automatically move a row to sheet 2 if a specific cell contained text?
Cell that would contain a date or be blank is G2. If it contained text I'd want to move a2:h2 to sheet2. On sheet2 it would not need to be in any specific place.
I have a table with 5 columns, which each column has there own percentage of evaluation for example 25%25%25%10%15%.
I want to create a formula that to look on each cell for each column the number and if it does't find number to take the percentage of that column and spread it to the other columns.
25% 25% 25% 10% 15%
1.00 0.73 0.45
In this case it has to take the 25% and the 10% and spread it to the other columns and do the calculations again from the start so I will get the correct number.
If I was going to do it by hand I will do the 35%/3 which 11.67% and add it on each column with data and then take the original data and multiply them with the result of the summary 
0% 36.67% 36.67% 0% 26.67%
Who can give a help with this?

I am creating a time sheet. For each day I have three columns, Time (15 min breakdown of the day), Activity, and Time worked.
I each created an IF function to fill the third column with a value 0.25 if the Activity cell has content.
(ie; no content = I have not done any work. 0.25 represents the quarter of an hour i have worked).
I had hoped to use a Sum function at the bottom of the third row to add up all the 0.25s to total my hours worked that day. However, the SUM function does not recognize the 0.25, generated by the IF function, as a number (cells are in number format but the 0.25 aligns to the left like text).
Would appreciate some help with this puzzle :)

What's the IF formula you're using?
Hello all, I hope someone can shed some light on my issue.
I am trying to calculate fuel consumption based on different MOVEMENTS of the ship from cell A1.
Cell A1 will either be, LOAD, SEA, MANEUVER, DISCH. Each Movement will correspond to a different CELL with its corresponding fuel consumption rate. SEA corresponds to cell A20 (or 1.02). I tried the IF function, but could only manage to get one IF.
ex A1 (SEA), B1=30 hours. FORMULA in C1, =IF(A1="SEA",(B1*A20)). This one works, but I cant seem to add multiple IF functions for LOAD, MANEUVER, DISCH, withouth it saying #value.
Any help would be great! thank you

There are several ways to identify duplicates in Excel. One way is to use Excel's builtin duplicate identification tool. Check out this article in AbleBits for several methods to accomplish your task.
https://www.ablebits.com/officeaddinsblog/2016/03/09/howtohighlightduplicatesexcel/
When you want to look across several sheets you can use something like this in the formula =COUNTIF(Sheet2!$A$1:$A$7,A1)>0
Where this is in the Sheet1 conditional formula rule.
Please if you can help me my IF format is

So basically what I want is if there is a date in cell C, then for cell D to add 30 days but if it is blank then leave cell D blank, i have an error in the +30 days but i can not work out how to do it
Hello, Sam:
I think what you're looking for is something like this:

Be sure C2 and the target cell are formatted as dates.
Thank you so much Doug :)
I am facing a problem in excel sheet I need your help.
For example if we enter the value like this
1517001255 (A6)
To (A7)
1517001260 (A8)
Than how we can find the (1517001256,1257,1258,1259) in H6
Waiting.
My qustion is that in a cell in my worksheet which contain only date (12/12/12 to ...) and n/a so I need comment of dateee no problem,or n/a it should be a problem...
Ansar,
I'm really sorry, your task is not entirely clear. If you're getting difficulties building your own IF formula, please look through these IF basics.
Hope this helps.
Is there a formula for changing a cells color? Conditional Formatting will not work for what I want...
I have a block of text, i.e. A2:F100, (the amount of rows changes every week) in which column A holds the different "Tape Numbers" (AA0053) that I'm verifying. I copy in a column of current available scratch tape numbers in the H column.
What I want is for my formula to look at H2 (AA0008) and search column A. If it finds AA0008 then color fill H2 Green, IF NOT then color fill H2 Red. Then I'll copy that formula down to H3 and so on... I know the =IF statement will do the True/False check, but I'm not sure how to tell it to change the background color.
A B C D E H
AA0008 *EXP 11/19/2018 11/27/2018 11/27/2018 AA0008
AA0058 *EXP 7/21/2013 7/29/2013 3/16/2015 AA0009
AA0085 *EXP 7/10/2018 7/25/2018 7/28/2018 AA0010
AA0086 *EXP 9/1/2018 11/30/2018 11/29/2018 AA0011
AA0105 *EXP 12/14/2018 12/22/2018 12/22/2018 AA0012
Conditional Formatting only find the "True" statement then formats the cell. I also need the false, so I want an "old school" formula. I'm not well versed with VBA, so I'm hoping to stay away from Macros.
I need your urgent help please
I have two column, i want the current date in second column if i put a text in first column,
When there is no text in first column then no date should be in second column
Ahmed:
From your post it's not clear what type of text should be in the first column, so I just used ISBLANK. Here's what I came up with for you.
=IF(ISBLANK(A2),"",TODAY())
The cell where this formula is entered displays today's date when A2 is not blank otherwise the cell displays nothing.
Doug,
regarding the =IF(ISBLANK(A2),"",TODAY()) , Will the date automatically update each day or will the date be set to whatever day you saved the file? I am trying to use the same idea. I want the date to post when anything is typed in cell A2, but I dont want the date to automatically update each day. I have to create a single file for each day of the month and am hoping to not have to go into each file and type the date each time. Looking to create a template.
I need help with a task.
I have three columns, One has a list of vendors and if that vendor was on our job that month I put a Y in the 2nd column next to his name. The 3rd column then will have another Y if that vendor has turned in his paperwork for the month. What I want is if the 3rd column is blank i want to highlight it. But if there is No Y in the 2nd column then I want nothing done for those cells. So in other words, if the vendor wasn't onsite then I don't care if his paperwork is in. But if he was and he hasn't turned it in I want his cells highlighted.
Thank you for your help.

Hi all,
I am trying to pull data from 3 different tabs onto one sheet. The data are US states in the columns and the other data is either "yes" "no" or is a blank cell. I've done vlookups to match the y/n/blank into 3 columns on one sheet. (I'm sure this isn't the best way to do this either..)
But now I'd like to pull the data from those 3 columns (each pulling from a different tab) and do if statements to pull my answer into one column. So, for example, State = AL, B1 = yes, c2 = blank, c3 = yes. How do I write a formula to look at all 3 and pull which column isn't blank?
Thanks in advance!

IF Cell A1 IS NOT EQUAL TO Cell B2 or Cell A1 is blank then it is to be considered as Cell C1 data
I have an simple If function in B1 for example =IF(A1>=1,"1","0").
The entry number works if I use it in a =SUM formula horizontally in D1 =SUM(C1B1). Example: A1 entry is 2, B1 becomes 1. C1 entry is 4, D1 becomes 3. Works great.
Here is where I run into trouble. I copy formulas vertical example: B2, B3, B4... then attempt a simple SUM formula =SUM(B1:B4) the result is always 0 even if B1 thru B4 all have 1 as a result.
Hello,
I have tried several ways to do this,please help.
if A2:21 says complete it equals a % and totals all within
Thank you

How would I write a formula for time zone conversion sample:
Cell D2 Local Time, E2 is the GMT Conversion and L2 is the Converted TIME Zone

Hope you could reply.

Hello
I am in desperate help of trying to figure out an if statement that can help me calculate # of days past due.
I have a column for start date, end date and actual date of completion. I have a column with a formula for today’s.
Originally, I used the networkdays formula to calculate the days from due date to today’s date, but when I put in the actual completion date, the past due days keeps updating and I don’t want that.
Have no idea if that made any sense. But hopefully someone can help me out !!
I have two columns. Column G is my due date and column J says whether I have approved or denied the application. If the due date is in the next 7 days, from today, and the corresponding cell in column J is blank (meaning I have not approved or denied the application) I want the cell in column G to highlight, or the row, to let me know the due date is coming up and I have not taken action on the application yet.
Can someone help with formulas for the following 2 scenarios:
1. Groups submitted from the 25th of the previous month
For month of February: statement is true if the date is 1/25/19 thru 2/28/19
2. Groups submitted from the 25th of the current month
For month of February: statement is true if the date is 2/25/19 thru 2/28/19
Thank you!

Hello;
I have the formula which i stated below, doesn't work. Could you help me on this matter.
The idea is: i will insert the data in C30 and if it's blank it will show "Please insert rank in cell C30" but if it's not blank it will show the value that searched through the table which is between "b33 and b41". So far it worked (without using AND formula).
Lastly i want the insert values to be between 0 and 10. So i put the and formula but it doesnt work.
Sincerely.
=AND(IF(ISBLANK($C$30);"Please Insert Rank in cell C30";(INDEX($B$33:$B$41;$C$30)));(c30>0;c30<10)
