The IF AND function in Google Sheets combines the functionality of the IF and AND functions to create an IF AND statement that is fulfilled if all the stated conditions are met. You can use numeric and string (text) conditions and even combine them together as IF AND conditions to help you identify the entries that you need.

The IF AND formula syntax is

**=IF(AND(condition1, condition2, …), value_if_true, value_if_false)**

Where

**condition1** and **condition2** are the conditions to fulfill. You can set more than two conditions

**value_if_true** is the value displayed if all the conditions are met

**value_if_false** is the value displayed if at least one of the conditions are not met

For this example, we identify the following conditions and values to display:

**condition1**: Weighted Score is greater than 36

**condition2**: Criterion A score is more than 14

**Value_if_true**: “Excellent”

**Value_if_false**: “Very Good”

As condition1 relies on data stored in column E and condition2 relies on data stored in column B, we get the following conditions (assuming row 2):

**condition1**: E2 > 36

**condition2**: B2 > 14

The function is

**=if(and(E2>36,B2>14),"Excellent","Very Good")**

You can extend IF AND down the column, giving you the following output:

For this example, we identify two conditions and values to display:

**condition1**: Assessment A is “Excellent”

**condition2**: Assessment B is “High Efficiency”

**Value_if_true**: “Shortlist”

**Value_if_false**: “Assess further”

As condition1 relies on data stored in column F and condition2 relies on data stored in column G, we get the following conditions (assuming row 2):

**condition1**: F2=“Excellent”

**condition2**: G2=“High Efficiency”

The strings should be enclosed in double quotes.

The function is

**=if(and(F2="Excellent",G2="High Efficiency"),"Shortlist","Assess further")**

You can extend IF AND down the column, giving you the following output:

For this example, we identify the following conditions and values to display:

**condition1**: Initial Recommendation is “Shortlist”

**condition2**: Criterion D is greater than 14

**Value_if_true**: “Admit”

**Value_if_false**: "Assess further”

As condition1 relies on data stored in column H and condition2 relies on data stored in column D, we get the following conditions (assuming row 2):

**condition1**: H2 = “Shortlist”

**condition1**: D2 > 14

The strings should be enclosed in double quotes.

In our example, the function is

**=if(and(H2="Shortlist",D2>14),"Admit","Assess further")**

You can extend IF AND down the column, giving you the following output:

There is theoretically no limit in the number of conditions you can add, but the limits come from the conditional logic you want to implement. This puts the realistic limit at to 2-3 conditions.

No. However, you can reference other cells when defining conditions.

IF: Allows you to check for specific conditions across a dataset

SUMIF: Use to sum numbers if they meet a certain condition..

SUMIFS: Sums data from cells that meet multiple criteria

COUNTIF: count data if it fulfils certain criteria

COUNTIFS: Count data that fulfils two or more criteria.

COUNT IF Not Null**: **Count cells if they contain data

IFS: Allows you to check for multiple if conditions in a single statement

IFERROR**:** Allows you to output values when an Error in a formula occurs

IFTHEN: Allows you tor write statements that use IF X Then Y Logic

IF ELSE**:** Evaluates a condition, and takes one action when the result is TRUE and a different one when the result is FALSE.

Multiple IF**:** Learn how to use multiple if statements in a single formula

IF OR: Evaluates multiple conditions and produces a TRUE result when any of them are met.

IF Contains: Returns cells that contain a particular text.

AVERAGEIF: Calculate an average for numbers within a data range if they meet the provided criteria.
