OR function

Returns Yes if any argument is TRUE; returns No if all arguments are FALSE.



Logical1, logical2,...     are 1 to 30 conditions you want to test that can be either TRUE or FALSE.


  • The arguments must evaluate to logical values such as TRUE or FALSE, or be arrays or references that contain logical values.

  • If a column reference argument contains text or is empty, those values are ignored.

  • If the specified range contains no logical values, OR returns the #VALUE! error value.



Description (Result)


One argument is TRUE (Yes)


All arguments evaluate to FALSE (No)


At least one argument is TRUE (Yes)
