We often work with different conditions in Excel for accounting, business, or engineering purposes. And for that, we had to use some conditional functions like, **IF**, **COUNTIF**, **AND**, **SUMIF**, and **OR **functions. In this tutorial, we’ll show three useful examples to learn how to use the **AND function** in Excel to return **TRUE **or **FALSE **for different kinds of conditions.

**What Is AND Function?**

The **AND **function of Microsoft Excel is used to return **TRUE **when all conditions turn **TRUE**. and It will return **FALSE **when any of the requirements are **FALSE**.

**Introduction to AND Function in Excel**

**Purpose:**

To return **TRUE **when all conditions turn **TRUE** and **FALSE **when any of the requirements are **FALSE**.

**Syntax:**

The syntax of the **AND **function is:

**=AND(condition1, [condition2], … )**

**Arguments:**

Argument | Required/Optional | Explanation |
---|---|---|

condition1 |
Required | The 1st condition for checking whether it’s TRUE or FALSE. |

condition2 |
Optional | Additional conditions for checking whether they turn TRUE or FALSE. Up to 30 conditions can be placed in total. |

**Return Parameter:**

Returns **TRUE **when all conditions turn **TRUE**.

And returns **FALSE **when any of the requirements turn **FALSE**.

**Available in:**

Available from Excel 2000.

**3 Examples to Return TRUE or FALSE Using AND Function in Excel**

Now let’s see three practical examples to understand the application of the **AND **function.

**Example 1: Check a Value and Return TRUE or FALSE Using AND Function**

Have a look at our dataset of the first method, it shows some students’ obtained numbers for an exam. We’ll apply the **AND **function to return **TRUE **if any number belongs between 70 to 80, otherwise will return **FALSE**.

**Steps:**

- In
**Cell D5**, write the following formula in it-

`=AND(C5>70,C5<80)`

- After hitting the
**ENTER**button, we will get**TRUE**for**Cell D5**, as it met the condition.

- Next, drag down the
**Fill Handle**icon to copy the formula for the other cells.

Here’s our final output.

**Example 2: Combine Excel AND and OR Functions to Return TRUE or FALSE**

When we want to meet a condition independently then we use **the OR function**. And we can combine this function with the **AND **function for some cases. In this method, we’ll use them to find those students who have achieved a number more than 70 and have attendance in Good level or Excellent level. If these criteria meet then the formula will return **TRUE **otherwise **FALSE**. So, we modified the dataset as shown below.

**Steps:**

- Insert the following formula in
**Cell E5**–

`=AND(C5>70,OR(D5="Good",D5="Excellent"))`

- Then press the
**ENTER**button to finish.

**Formula Breakdown:**

**OR(D5=”Good”,D5=”Excellent”)**

The **OR **function will check the **Cell D5** whether it contains ‘Good’ or ‘Excellent’. If contains one of them then it will return **TRUE **otherwise return **FAlSE**.

**AND(C5>70,OR(D5=”Good”,D5=”Excellent”))**

Finally, the **AND **function will combine the output of the **OR **function and the logic **C5>70**, it will return **TRUE **if both logics return **TRUE **otherwise will return **FALSE**.

- After that, use the
**Fill Handle**tool to get the other outputs.

3 students have met the condition. And it has provided **TRUE** for those students.

**Example 3: Combine Excel IF and AND Functions to Return an Output**

Imagine a scenario, we have three subjects’ results of the students, now we want to get the final result based on the subjectwise result. If any student failed in any subject then the formula will return ‘Failed’ otherwise will return ‘Passed’. To do that, we’ll use **the IF function** **with the AND function**.

We modified the dataset in that way and inserted **the TRUE function** to express passing and **the FALSE function** for expressing failed.

**Steps:**

- In
**Cell F5**, write the following formula-

`=IF(AND(C5=TRUE,D5=TRUE,E5=TRUE),"Passed","Failed")`

- Later, hit the
**ENTER**button to get the result.

**Formula Breakdown:**

**AND(C5=TRUE,D5=TRUE,E5=TRUE)**

The **AND **function will check each subject’s result for every student whether all are **TRUE **or not. If all gets **TRUE **then it will return **TRUE **otherwise will return **FALSE**.

**IF(AND(C5=TRUE,D5=TRUE,E5=TRUE),”Passed”,”Failed”)**

Finally, the **IF **function will return ‘Passed’ for **TRUE **and ‘Failed’ for **FALSE**.

- To get the output for the other cells, use the
**Fill Handle**tool.

Here’s our final result sheet, we got three failed students and three passed students.

**Conclusion**

That’s all for today. I hope all the methods described above will be good enough to use the **AND **function to get the desired output in Excel. Feel free to ask any question in the comment section and please give me feedback.
