AND function

Returns the logical value TRUE or Yes if all of the arguments evaluate to TRUE; returns FALSE or No if one or more arguments evaluate to FALSE.

Syntax

AND(logical1,logical2,…)

Logical1,Logical2,…    are 1 to 30 conditions you want to test that can be either TRUE or FALSE.

Remarks

  • The arguments must evaluate to logical values such as TRUE or FALSE, or the arguments must be column references that contain logical values.

  • If a column reference argument contains text, AND returns the #VALUE! Error value; if it is empty, it returns FALSE.

  • If the arguments contain no logical values, AND returns the #VALUE! error value.

  • If one or more arguments contain #NULL!, AND returns #NULL!.
