Excel Logical Functions

The Excel logical functions include the boolean operators and conditional tests.

All the Excel logical functions are listed below, grouped into categories, to help you to find the function you need. Each function name links to a full description of the function, with examples of use.

Note that some of the Logical functions were introduced in recent versions of Excel, and so are not available in earlier versions.
