ANDfunction in Google Sheets is a logical function that returns TRUE if all of the logical expressions in the argument are TRUE, and FALSE if any of the logical expressions are FALSE. It can be used to test multiple conditions and evaluate whether they are all true or not.
- How to use

ANDformula not working?
- Similar formulas to
AND formula with the syntax shown below, it has 1 required parameter and 1 optional parameter:
- logical_expression1 (required):
The first logical expression that you want to test.
- logical_expression2, ... (optional):
Additional logical expressions that you want to test, up to a maximum of 255. Separate each logical expression by a comma.
ExamplesHere are a few example use cases that explain how to use the
ANDformula in Google Sheets.
Check if multiple conditions are true
You can use the
AND function to check if multiple conditions are true. For example, you might use it to determine whether a student has passed a test based on their score and attendance.
Combine with other logical functions
You can combine the
AND function with other logical functions, such as
NOT, to create more complex logical expressions.
Filter data based on multiple criteria
You can use the
AND function to filter data in Google Sheets based on multiple criteria. For example, you might use it to filter a list of students based on their grade level and their attendance record.
ANDnot working? Here are some common mistakes people make when using the
ANDGoogle Sheets Formula:
One of the logical expressions is missing or there is an extra comma. Check that all logical expressions are included and separated by commas.
The AND formula only returns a TRUE or FALSE result. Check that the logical expressions are written correctly and evaluate to TRUE or FALSE.
Misunderstanding of Logic
Some users may not understand how the AND formula works and may use it incorrectly. Make sure to read the documentation and understand how the formula evaluates the logical expressions.
The following functions are similar to
AND or are often used with it in a formula:
ORformula is a logical formula that returns TRUE if at least one of the provided logical expressions is TRUE. It returns FALSE if all logical expressions are FALSE. This formula is commonly used in conjunction with other logical formulas, such as
AND, to build more complex logical statements.
NOTformula in Google Sheets is a logical function that negates a given logical expression. If the logical expression evaluates to TRUE, the formula returns FALSE, and vice versa. This function is commonly used to reverse the result of a logical test, or to check if a value is not equal to a specific criteria.
IFformula is a logical function used to test a condition and return one value if the condition is true and another value if the condition is false. It is commonly used to create conditional statements and perform calculations based on certain conditions.
The FILTER formula in Google Sheets is used to filter a range of data based on specified conditions. It returns a new range that only includes the rows that meet the specified conditions. This formula is commonly used to extract specific data from a larger dataset.
COUNTIFformula counts the number of cells within a specified range that meet a certain criterion. This formula is commonly used to count cells that meet a specific condition or criteria.
