# Excel IF statement with multiple conditions

The tutorial shows how to create multiple IF statements in Excel with AND as well as OR logic. Also, you will learn how to use IF together with other Excel functions.

In the first part of our Excel IF tutorial, we looked at how to construct a simple IF statement with one condition for text, numbers, dates, blanks and non-blanks. For powerful data analysis, however, you may often need to evaluate multiple conditions at a time. The below formula examples will show you the most effective ways to do this.

## How to use IF function with multiple conditions

In essence, there are two types of the IF formula with multiple criteria based on the AND / OR logic. Consequently, in the logical test of your IF formula, you should use one of these functions:

• AND function - returns TRUE if all the conditions are met; FALSE otherwise.
• OR function - returns TRUE if any single condition is met; FALSE otherwise.

To better illustrate the point, let's investigate some real-life formulas examples.

### Excel IF statement with multiple conditions (AND logic)

The generic formula of Excel IF with two or more conditions is this:

IF(AND(condition1, condition2, …), value_if_true, value_if_false)

Translated into a human language, the formula says: If condition 1 is true AND condition 2 is true, return value_if_true; else return value_if_false.

Suppose you have a table listing the scores of two tests in columns B and C. To pass the final exam, a student must have both scores greater than 50.

For the logical test, you use the following AND statement: AND(B2>50, C2>50)

If both conditions are true, the formula will return "Pass"; if any condition is false - "Fail".

`=IF(AND(B2>50, B2>50), "Pass", "Fail")`

Easy, isn't it? The screenshot below proves that our Excel IF /AND formula works right:

In a similar manner, you can use the Excel IF function with multiple text conditions.

For instance, to output "Good" if both B2 and C2 are greater than 50, "Bad" otherwise, the formula is:

`=IF(AND(B2="pass", C2="pass"), "Good!", "Bad")`

Important note! The AND function checks all the conditions, even if the already tested one(s) evaluated to FALSE. Such behavior is a bit unusual since in most of programming languages, subsequent conditions are not tested if any of the previous tests has returned FALSE.

In practice, a seemingly correct IF statement may result in an error because of this specificity. For example, the below formula would return #DIV/0! ("divide by zero" error) if cell A2 is equal to 0:

`=IF(AND(A2<>0, (1/A2)>0.5),"Good", "Bad")`

The avoid this, you should use a nested IF function:

`=IF(A2<>0, IF((1/A2)>0.5, "Good", "Bad"), "Bad")`

### Excel IF function with multiple conditions (OR logic)

To do one thing if any condition is met, otherwise do something else, use this combination of the IF and OR functions:

IF(OR(condition1, condition2, …), value_if_true, value_if_false)

The difference from the IF / AND formula discussed above is that Excel returns TRUE if any of the specified conditions is true.

So, if in the previous formula, we use OR instead of AND:

`=IF(OR(B2>50, B2>50), "Pass", "Fail")`

Then anyone who has more than 50 points in either exam will get "Pass" in column D. With such conditions, our students have a better chance to pass the final exam (Yvette being particularly unlucky failing by just 1 point :)

Tip. In case you are creating a multiple IF statement with text and testing a value in one cell with the OR logic (i.e. a cell can be "this" or "that"), then you can build a more compact formula using an array constant.

For example, to mark a sale as "closed" if cell B2 is either "delivered" or "paid", the formula is:

`=IF(OR(B2={"delivered", "paid"}), "Closed", "")`

More formula examples can be found in Excel IF OR function.

### IF with multiple AND & OR statements

If your task requires evaluating several sets of multiple conditions, you will have to utilize both AND & OR functions at a time.

In our sample table, suppose you have the following criteria for checking the exam results:

• Condition 1: exam1>50 and exam2>50
• Condition 2: exam1>40 and exam2>60

If either of the conditions is met, the final exam is deemed passed.

At first sight, the formula seems a little tricky, but in fact it is not! You just express each of the above conditions as an AND statement and nest them in the OR function (since it's not necessary to meet both conditions, either will suffice):

`OR(AND(B2>50, C2>50), AND(B2>40, C2>60)`

Then, use the OR function for the logical test of IF and supply the desired value_if_true and value_if_false values. As the result, you get the following IF formula with multiple AND / OR conditions:

`=IF(OR(AND(B2>50, C2>50), AND(B2>40, C2>60), "Pass", "Fail")`

The screenshot below indicates that we've done the formula right:

Naturally, you are not limited to using only two AND/OR functions in your IF formulas. You can use as many of them as your business logic requires, provided that:

• In Excel 2007 and higher, you have no more than 255 arguments, and the total length of the IF formula does not exceed 8,192 characters.
• In Excel 2003 and lower, there are no more than 30 arguments, and the total length of your IF formula does not exceed 1,024 characters.

## Nested IF statement to check multiple logical tests

If you want to evaluate multiple logical tests within a single formula, then you can nest several functions one into another. Such functions are called nested IF functions. They prove particularly useful when you wish to return different values depending on the logical tests' results.

Here's a typical example: suppose you want to qualify the students' achievements as "Good", "Satisfactory" and "Poor" based on the following scores:

• Good: 60 or more (>=60)
• Satisfactory: between 40 and 60 (>40 and <60)
• Poor: 40 or less (<=40)

Before writing a formula, consider the order of functions you are going to nest. Excel will evaluate the logical tests in the order they appear in the formula. Once a condition evaluates to TRUE, the subsequent conditions are not tested, meaning the formula stops after the first TRUE result.

In our case, the functions are arranged from largest to smallest:

`=IF(B2>=60, "Good", IF(B2>40, "Satisfactory", "Poor"))`

Naturally, you can nest more functions if needed (up to 64 in modern versions).

## Excel IF array formula with multiple conditions

Another way to get an Excel IF to test multiple conditions is by using an array formula.

To evaluate conditions with the AND logic, use the asterisk:

IF(condition1) * (condition2) * …, value_if_true, value_if_false)

To test conditions with the OR logic, use the plus sign:

IF(condition1) + (condition2) + …, value_if_true, value_if_false)

To complete an array formula correctly, press the Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together. In Excel 365 and Excel 2021, this also works as a regular formula due to support for dynamic arrays.

For example, to get "Pass" if both B2 and C2 are greater than 50, the formula is:

`=IF((B2>50) * (C2>50), "Pass", "Fail")`

In my Excel 365, a normal formula works just fine (as you can see in the screenshots above). In Excel 2019 and lower, remember to make it an array formula by using the Ctrl + Shift + Enter shortcut.

To evaluate multiple conditions with the OR logic, the formula is:

`=IF((B2>50) + (C2>50), "Pass", "Fail")`

## Using IF together with other functions

This section explains how to use IF in combination with other Excel functions and what benefits this gives to you.

### Example 1. If #N/A error in VLOOKUP

When VLOOKUP or other lookup function cannot find something, it returns a #N/A error. To make your tables look nicer, you can return zero, blank, or specific text if #N/A. For this, use this generic formula:

IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(…)), value_if_na, VLOOKUP(…))

For example:

If #N/A return 0:

If the lookup value in E1 is not found, the formula returns zero.

`=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(E1, A2:B10, 2,FALSE )), 0, VLOOKUP(E1, A2:B10, 2, FALSE))`

If #N/A return blank:

If the lookup value is not found, the formula returns nothing (an empty string).

`=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(E1, A2:B10, 2,FALSE )), "", VLOOKUP(E1, A2:B10, 2, FALSE))`

If #N/A return certain text:

If the lookup value is not found, the formula returns specific text.

`=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(E1, A2:B10, 2,FALSE )), "Not found", VLOOKUP(E1, A2:B10, 2, FALSE))`

For more formula examples, please see VLOOKUP with IF statement in Excel.

### Example 2. IF with SUM, AVERAGE, MIN and MAX functions

To sum cell values based on certain criteria, Excel provides the SUMIF and SUMIFS functions.

In some situations, your business logic may require including the SUM function in the logical test of IF. For example, to return different text labels depending on the sum of the values in B2 and C2, the formula is:

`=IF(SUM(B2:C2)>130, "Good", IF(SUM(B2:C2)>110, "Satisfactory", "Poor"))`

If the sum is greater than 130, the result is "good"; if greater than 110 – "satisfactory', if 110 or lower – "poor".

In a similar fashion, you can embed the AVERAGE function in the logical test of IF and return different labels based on the average score:

`=IF(AVERAGE(B2:C2)>65, "Good", IF(AVERAGE(B2:C2)>55, "Satisfactory", "Poor"))`

Assuming the total score is in column D, you can identify the highest and lowest values with the help of the MAX and MIN functions:

`=IF(D2=MAX(\$D\$2:\$D\$10), "Best result", "")`

`=IF(D2=MAX(\$D\$2:\$D\$10), "Best result", "")`

To have both labels in one column, nest the above functions one into another:

`=IF(D2=MAX(\$D\$2:\$D\$10), "Best result", IF(D2=MIN(\$D\$2:\$D\$10), "Worst result", ""))`

Likewise, you can use IF together with your custom functions. For example, you can combine it with GetCellColor or GetCellFontColor to return different results based on a cell color.

In addition, Excel provides a number of functions to calculate data based on conditions. For detailed formula examples, please check out the following tutorials:

• COUNTIF - count cells that meet a condition
• COUNTIFS - count cells with multiple criteria
• SUMIF - conditionally sum cells
• SUMIFS - sum cells with multiple criteria

### Example 3. IF with ISNUMBER, ISTEXT and ISBLANK

To identify text, numbers and blank cells, Microsoft Excel provides special functions such as ISTEXT, ISNUMBER and ISBLANK. By placing them in the logical tests of three nested IF statements, you can identify all different data types in one go:

`=IF(ISTEXT(A2), "Text", IF(ISNUMBER(A2), "Number", IF(ISBLANK(A2), "Blank", "")))`

### Example 4. IF and CONCATENATE

To output the result of IF and some text into one cell, use the CONCATENATE or CONCAT (in Excel 2016 - 365) and IF functions together. For example:

`=CONCATENATE("You performed ", IF(B1>100,"fantastic!", IF(B1>50, "well", "poor")))`

`=CONCAT("You performed ", IF(B1>100,"fantastic!", IF(B1>50, "well", "poor")))`

Looking at the screenshot below, you'll hardly need any explanation of what the formula does:

## IF ISERROR / ISNA formula in Excel

The modern versions of Excel have special functions to trap errors and replace them with another calculation or predefined value - IFERROR (in Excel 2007 and later) and IFNA (in Excel 2013 and later). In earlier Excel versions, you can use the IF ISERROR and IF ISNA combinations instead.

The difference is that IFERROR and ISERROR handle all possible Excel errors, including #VALUE!, #N/A, #NAME?, #REF!, #NUM!, #DIV/0!, and #NULL!. While IFNA and ISNA specialize solely in #N/A errors.

For example, to replace the "divide by zero" error (#DIV/0!) with your custom text, you can use the following formula:

`=IF(ISERROR(A2/B2), "N/A", A2/B2)`

And that's all I have to say about using the IF function in Excel. I thank you for reading and hope to see you on our blog next week!

16. I am struggling with a formula. I'm in Accounts Receivable and I'm comparing invoiced quantities, prices and amounts to what was paid. I'll put this vertically due to lack of horizontal room in this comment box.

Column M = Invoiced Qty
Column N = Invoiced Price
Column O = Amount Invoiced

Column P = Paid Qty
Column Q = Paid Price
Column R = Paid Amount

Column S = Difference (Sum of O-R)

So, I want in column T to be:
"Q" if there is a difference between Column M and Column P,
"P" if there is a difference between Column N and Column Q,
"QP" if there is a difference between both Columns M & P AND N & Q,
"NP" if there are blanks in Columns P & Q (maybe it would be easier to say if Column O = Column S), or
to be blank if none of these conditions are met.

Can you help? I've tried several methods and I can always get it to do some of these but not all conditions.

Thank you!

17. I AM FACING A PROBLEM AND GUIDANCE IS NEEDED?

THERE ARE TWO SUBJECTS IN A1 AND B1
ENGLISH READER IN A1 AND ENGLISH GRAMMAR IN B1
EACH SUBJECT CARRIES 100 MARKS EACH.
MINIMUM PASSING MARKS ARE 35% OR 35 MARKS.
NOW TO CREATE RESULT FOR ENGLISH IS
ENGLISH = ENGLISH READER MARKS + ENGLISH GRAMMAR MARKS.
NOW ONLY THOSE MARKS WILL BE COUNTED WHICH IS AT LEAST 35 PERCENT.

A1= 34 B1 = 35

ENGLISH = A1 + B1 =35
A1 MARKS WILL NOT BE COUNTED SINCE AT LEAST 35 MARKS NEEDED TO ADD.

IF A1 = 35 AND B1=35 THEN
ENGLISH TOTAL MARKS WILL BE = A1+B1=35+35=70

BUT SINCE A1 HAS34 VALUE THEN
ENGLISH TOTAL MARKS SHOULD BE = A1(0)+B1(35)=35

WHAT TYPE OF FORMULA SHOULD BE THERE....PLEASE MENTION.

• Not sure what you are asking unless you want B2 or C2 to be returned as the If False condition.
If D1=A2 the formula will either return B2 or C2, but not both.
Try this and see if it works for you: =IF(D1=A2,B2,C2)
If the value in D1 is equal to the value in A2 then return the value in B2 otherwise return the value in C2.

I want to compare cell A1 if it contains a date to Cell B1 if it contains text and give results "Done" or " Not done"
Results: If cell A1 = date and cell B1 = text complete then "Done"
If cell A1 = no date and B1 = text completed, then "Not Done"

• Sofy:
There are a couple of ways to accomplish what you want to do. Here is one that doesn't require VBA.
=IF(AND(CELL("Format",D24)="D2",E24="Complete"),"Done","Not Done")
Where the date is in D24 and it is in the dd/mmm as in your sample.
Where "Complete" is in E24 enter this formula in an empty cell.
So, it says, if the format of the contents of cell D24 is a date in the format 9-September and the contents of E24 is "Complete" then display "Done" otherwise if one or both of these are not true display "Not Done".

39. Hi,

I need help with an "if,then" statement. I want to say the following:

If C3 is 50% of B3, then D3 should be 0.
If C3 is not 50% of B3, then D3 should be 50% of C3

Here's the formula for B3:

=IF(C3=B3*0.5, 0, C3*0.5)

42. Hello Svetlana,
I have to write a formula for the following condition:
Application filled by students are saved in an excel file where there are fields where students enter which class they study in and the subjects they opt for. Now I have the columns to enter the class (from a drop-down list) and SUBJECTS OPTED (multiple selection dropdown lists). Now based on the values entered I need to get a result as to the total fees they need to pay called from another sheet.
How do I do that (tried with no success)?

Kindly Help.

43. Can Anyone rectify my below formula.
Instead of Result, it shows me as #VALUE!

=IF(K3=0,"Nil",TODAY()-C3)*AND(IF(K3>0,"Excess",TODAY()-C3))*AND(IF(K3<0,TODAY()-C3,"Bal"))

44. Hi there. I am trying to produce a formula for the following:
IF A1 contains Receivables, copy b1 as a positive number in c1.

Any ideas?

• Hi Casey,

Here's the formula for C1:
=IF(A1="Receivables", ABS(B1), "")

• Thank you! Youre a wiz! One more question: The word receivables is in a sting of words in A1. How do I write this into the formula?

• Hi Casey,

In this case, you can use the SEARCH function to find it :)

=IFERROR(IF(SEARCH("receivables",A1), ABS(B1)), "")

45. great article -thank you!

I am stumped on one that I would love your expert opinion on....I want to combine and AND with a formula, so basically if cell E3>0 then H2*E3 (I have to cost out the cost of an employee to fly out for a certain travel day, but only of that travel day is required. By placing a 1 in cell E3 I am saying that we need a travel day, so want it to activate the formula H2*E3).

Know this is complicated but thank you for reading this one anyway!

• OK, I'll bite.
=IF(E3>0,H2*E3,"Stumped")

• Thank you Doug!

46. Help, I need to make a formula for cells for the following. If between 2-5 then 1, If between 6-10 then 2 and so on. Please help

1 first aid attendant for 2-5 employees per floor at all times
2 first aid attendants for 6-10 employees per floor at all times
3 first aid attendants for 11-50 employees per floor at all times
4 first aid attendants for 51-100 employees per floor at all times
5 first aid attendants for 101-150 employees per floor at all times
6 first aid attendants for 151-200 employees per floor at all times

• Hello, Rhea,
If we understand your task correctly, the following formula should work for you:

=IF(A1 >= 151, 6, IF(A1 >= 101, 5,IF(A1 >= 51, 4, IF(A1 >= 11, 3, IF(A1 >= 6, 2, IF(A1 >= 2, 1, ""))))))

• Hi, Daniel,

We've looked into your task and have a couple of questions to clarify before we can help:
1) Since you posted your question under the article about Excel - do you need a solution for Excel or Google Sheets? These platforms work a bit differently, so we need to know for sure.
2) You mentioned you need to put "X" instead of "11.75" when the latter occurs. I'm afraid it won't be possible, because the formula returns the result to where it stands, and we can't enter it to the cell needed for the calculations.
3) Could you please also clarify where is the "day" in your data? It's not entirely clear whether the days are the columns from A to E, or the ranges like A21:E25.

You can email us to support@ablebits.com with the answers for better convenience.
Thank you.

47. I am trying to write a formula for the below scenario:
We have a list of data entered by our customer service reps (CSRs). Each day, we need to know if the specific members of our pilot group were there.
I have a table with a row at the end labeled 1-5 (for days of the week).

I'm trying to develop a formula that will look for Day 1 (or Day 2, etc.) and then look through the list of names (which will actually include all 5 days) and return a value of "Yes" or "No".

I've got a whole Word document of attempted formulas and nothing is working. I thought this would work (I created additional tabs for days and the pilot group names):
=IF((AND('Qry_BCNA Control Group'!\$O:\$O='Days '!\$A\$1, 'Qry_BCNA Control Group'!\$K:\$K='PilotGroup'!\$A:\$A)), “Yes”, “No”)
But it came back with a #NAME? error.

49. Hello,

I have a spread sheet that hast at least 371 rows, this rows may or may not change every month but i need a formula that will count how many cells contain an organization (Column C) and then find those who have dates <= of the END of the month. My second formula should be counting every one from a organization (Column C) that has a "u" or"ps" in column E.
The main goal is for the expression to identify the organizations so i do not have to edit the cells range every single month for each particular field.
