Microsoft Excel's IF function is one of the most powerful functions
in Excel. It allows you to set a cells value based on the result of
evaluating a "condition". A condition is essentially a question where
the answer is always either true or false. For example, the
A1 < 10 is a condition that tests whether
the cell A1 is less than 10. If it is, it will return true; if it is
not, it will return false. This is a good example of the type of
question that Excel's IF function can handle.
A3 >= B5.
You should use Excel's IF function whenever you want a cells value to change depending on the answer to a question. For example, I want to show "good" for people who received an A or a B in the class and "bad" for anyone who received a lower grade.
