=IF(B7<5,"Yes","No")

Please can you help me amend the formula so that if B7is blank = "" the formula will also return a result of blank.

However should B7 be greater than 5 (<5) it will return "No"
Less than or equal to 5 "Yes"

"should B7 be greater than 5 (<5)"  ...did you meant "greater than 5 (>5)"?

Those two put together mean that you have your condition wrong. It's <=5 not <5

=IF(B7="","",IF(B7<=5,"Yes","No"))
