## Summary

The AND function is a logical function used to require more than one condition at the same time. AND returns either TRUE or FALSE.

## Purpose

## Return value

## Syntax

## Arguments

**logical1**– The first condition or logical value to evaluate.**logical2**– [optional] The second condition or logical value to evaluate.

## Usage notes

Use the AND function to test multiple conditions at the same time, up to 255 conditions. Each logical condition (**logical1**, **logical2**, etc.) must evaluate to TRUE or FALSE, or be arrays or references that contain logical values.

For example, to test if the value in A5 is greater than 0 and less than 5, use the following formula:

=AND(A5>0,A5<5)

It can be useful to extend the functionality of functions like IF with AND. Using the above example, you can supply AND as the logical_test for the IF function like so:

=IF(AND(A5>0,A5<5), “Approved”, “Denied”)

This formula will return “Approved” only if the value in A5 is greater than 0 and less than 5.

Notes:

- Text values or empty cells supplied as arguments are ignored.
- The AND function will return #VALUE if no logical values are found or created during evaluation.
