Excel 2016 from Scratch Exercise

The Logical IF Function

An Excel tutorial by Peter Kalmstrom

Excel 2016 iconThe Excel IF function is a formula that checks whether a condition is met or not. It returns one value if the condition is met, TRUE, and another value if it is not met, FALSE.

In this exercise in the Excel 2016 from Scratch series, Peter Kalmstrom explains how the Excel IF function works and how IF formulas are created. He shows some simple examples and then gives the solution to the exercise. 


If you want to try the exercise yourself, please download the Excel file Peter uses in the demo!


This is what Peter shows in the demo below:

  • How to enter a logical test in an IF-statement.
  • How to reach the next parameter if you are writing the IF-statement directly in the cell.
  • How to use the parameters "value-if-true" and "value-if-false".
  • How to test IF-statements.
  • How to use the Function Guide to create an IF-statement formula.
  • How to avoid hardcoding numbers in IF-statements but use cell references instead.
Peter uses Excel 2016 for his demo, but the Excel calculation functions are the same for earlier versions of Excel.
