OR

Archived content. No warranty is made as to technical accuracy. Content may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

Returns TRUE if any argument is TRUE; returns FALSE 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.

Example
