# How to Check if Cell is Empty in Google Sheets

To check if a cell is empty in Google Sheets, you can use the `ISBLANK()`

function. The `ISBLANK()`

function returns `TRUE`

if the cell is empty and `FALSE`

if it contains any value.

Here's how to use the `ISBLANK()`

function:

- Click on the cell where you want the result to be displayed.
- Enter the formula
`=ISBLANK(cell_reference)`

, where`cell_reference`

is the address of the cell you want to check. - Press Enter.

The formula will return `TRUE`

if the referenced cell is empty and `FALSE`

if it contains any value.

## Example

Let's say you want to check if cell A1 is empty. Here's how to do it:

- Click on the cell where you want the result to be displayed (e.g., B1).
- Enter the formula
`=ISBLANK(A1)`

. - Press Enter.

The formula in B1 will return `TRUE`

if A1 is empty and `FALSE`

if it contains any value.
