OR function

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

Syntax

OR(logical1,logical2,...)

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

Remarks

  • 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.

Examples
