Excel If Functions

I created If function as shown in attached picture =if (c1>=10;2;0) then if I type a letter or text into c1 it show me the true value
Why excel understand that letter or text as number >=10

Re: Excel If Functions

In Excel with comparing operators any logical value is always more than any text, and any text is always more than any number.

Re: Excel If Functions

Sorry, I didn't catch. You type some text in c1 and compare it with 10. When you'd like to have TRUE and when FALSE, for which combination of text and 10?

Re: Excel If Functions

When I type text in C1 it give me the value if false in D1 not the value if true

Re: Excel If Functions

So, to return

if in C1 is text AND in D1 is FALSE then value

and

Where to take value?

If in C1 is text and in D1 is TRUE?

If in C1 is not text?

As a staring point you may use check ISTEXT(C1) and build logic based on it

Re: Excel If Functions

Perhaps

=IF(ISNUMBER(C1)*(C1>=10),2,0)

if I understood your logic correctly. Please see in attached file.
