# How to Create IF Function to Return Yes or No in Excel

To create an IF function that returns "Yes" or "No" in Excel, you can use the following formula:

`=IF(logical_test, "Yes", "No")`

`logical_test`

: This is the condition you want to test. If the condition is true, Excel will return "Yes," and if the condition is false, Excel will return "No."

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to create an IF function to return "Yes" or "No" in Excel:

- Open your Excel worksheet.
- Click on the cell where you want to display the result of the IF function.
- Type the
`=IF(logical_test, "Yes", "No")`

formula. - Replace
`logical_test`

with your desired condition. For example, if you want to check if the value in cell A1 is greater than 10, the formula will be`=IF(A1>10, "Yes", "No")`

. - Press Enter. Excel will now evaluate the condition and display either "Yes" or "No" in the selected cell based on the result.

## Example

Let's say you have a list of students and their scores in an Excel worksheet, and you want to find out if each student passed or failed. You can use the IF function to return "Yes" if the student passed (score >= 50) and "No" if the student failed (score < 50).

- In the first empty cell of the adjacent column (e.g., column B), type the following formula:

`=IF(A1>=50, "Yes", "No")`

- Press Enter. The cell will now display "Yes" if the student's score in cell A1 is greater than or equal to 50, and "No" if it's less than 50.
- Use the fill handle to copy the formula down to the rest of the cells in the column. This will apply the same logic to all the student scores in column A.

Now you have a column that shows "Yes" for students who passed and "No" for students who failed based on their scores.
