Excel IF formula with AND & OR logical functions

If you want to test the result of cells based on several sets of multiple test conditions, you can use the IF function with the AND and OR functions at a time.

Assuming that you have the following test logic to check the exam scores:

Logic test1: 60<=B1<=70

Logic test2: 60<=C1<=70

If any of the above conditions are met, then mark the result as “good”, otherwise, mark the result as “bad”. We need to use two AND functions to reflect the above two logical test and enclose them in the OR function as one logical test in the Excel IF formula. Let’s write down the below IF formula with AND & OR logical functions:

=IF(OR(AND(B1>=60,B1<=70),AND(C1>=60,C1<=70)),"good","bad") 

Excel IF formula with AND OR logical functions1

Let’s see another IF formula with AND and OR functions as follows:

=IF(AND(B1="tom",OR(C1>=60,D1>=60)),"pass","")

When B1 is equal to “tom”, and either C1 is greater than or equal to “60” or D1 is greater than or equal to 60, the formula returns “pass”. Otherwise, the formula will return an empty string.

Excel IF formula with AND OR logical functions2

If we just want to check the cells where the value in column B is “tom” AND the score in column C is greater than or equal to 60. If you want to return TRUE, you can use the below logical test statement with the AND function:

AND(B1="tom",C1>=60)

Next, we can extend the above statement, we want to check the cells if the values in column B is “tom” AND the scores in column C or column D is greater than or equal to 60. Then we can nest the OR function in the above AND function like below:

AND(B1="tom",OR(C1>=60,D1>=60))
