Iseven Function Examples

Several examples of the Excel Iseven function are shown in the spreadsheets below:

1=ISEVEN( 0 ) 
2=ISEVEN( 1 ) 
3=ISEVEN( 2 ) 
4=ISEVEN( 20/4 ) 
5=ISEVEN( B5 )10
6=ISEVEN( B6 ) 

Note that the example in cell A1 shows that the Iseven function returns True for a zero value. Also, as seen in cell A6, an empty cell evaluates to zero and so the Iseven function also returns True in this case.

Further information and examples of the Excel 'Is' functions are provided on the Microsoft Office website.
