# Excel AND Function

By August 6, 2010

Excel AND Function

The AND function is another of Excel's Logical Functions. In general, a logical function only gives you a true or false answer. It evaluates the data in a spreadsheet to see if it meets the specified criteria. If it does, the function returns a True response in the cell where the function is located. If not, a False statement is returned.

In Excel 2007 the AND function allows you to specify up to 255 criteria to be evaluated. All of these criteria would need to meet the specified criteria for the function to give you a True response.

In Excel, the AND function is often combined with other functions, such as the IF function to greatly increase the capabilities of your spreadsheet.

To find out the details on using this function, read this short tutorial on the Excel AND Function.

Sir,
this is function I tried to used.

IF(AND(E15>8000,E1512000,E1515000,300,0)))

The result I want is.

1. I need 100 for amount between 8,000 14,000
2. I need 200 for the amount between 13,000 and 16,000
3. I need 300 for the amount above 16,000

To Sang Po:

In your situation, it would be best to use an IF function ranther than an AND function. My suggestion is as follows:

=IF(E15>16000, 300,IF(E15<13000, 100, 200))

Basically, if the value in E15 is greater than 16000 you will get 300, otherwise, it will check if the value is less than 13000, which will give you 100, and if neither are true it means you are in between and you will get a value of 200.

This will eliminate the ‘100′ response from any number below 8000

=IF(Z3216000,300,IF(Z32<13000,100,200)))

Hi i need a help in excel.
I have a document log wherein i have different column for revision of document with submitted date in them & final status column which shows status of that document. I need to put in a formula which will show the age of document for reviewing. the problem is i have different revision for documents with different dates. if the final status shows “UR” – “under review” then it should check for which revision it is & the date document submitted. the output should be the no. of days for review.

A+B=A
A=A+B

I.E. 5+2=7 A=5 B=2 STORE IN A=7
IF WE CHANGE VALUE OF B =3
THEN SUM SHOULD BE A=10
10=7+3

Not sure how to make this happen in excel. Pretty sure I should use the “IF” function.

I would like the cell to read “Master” if value is >4

I would like the cell to read “AA” if value is 3.5,

” ” ” “A” if value is 3, and

” ” ” “B” if value is <3.

How do I do this?

Thanks.

I have a document that I am using on my job. I did not create, but it has been used, saved, and sent many times. This matrix is needed to track the employees training and allow my trainer on first glance to see whose training is either 1) updated, 2) expired, or 3) current. Each status is color coated, but for some reason, most employees are showing the expired status when thier training is current or even recently updated.
Can you help?

The formula being used is :
=DAYS360(K2,NOW()+10)

I’m trying to spread a column of payments to vendors horizontally over time, over many columns of months. With what I just learned here, I was able to create:
if date of payment is less than date above, amount is zero and if date of payment is less than or equal to next month, then zero, otherwise the amount paid.
=IF(A17=M1,0,C17))

but I recall in Lotus that there was a way to write:
if date is greater than above AND less than next month, then the amount, otherwise zero.
How do I write that?
It’s something like:
=IF(A17>=L1 AND <M1,C17,0)

where
A17 – the date of payment
C17 – the amount of payment
L1 – a date, e.g. April 1
M1 – the next month, e.g. May 1

Thanx!
