MS Excel Formula Result not displayed

Hello,
This is so strange and I can't see what the problem is.  I am sure it has a very simple solution.
And the cell format is the same.Column not True or FalseColumn J does not want to show the TRUE or FALSE, as does I;

One shortcut solution - Delete column J - Add new column. So if any formatting issue.Then it will be resolved .

Thanks

Column J is probably formatted as Text; change the cell(s) or entire column to "General" then press [F2] and [Enter] on that first cell in J1.

probably is issue at  A1 and k1 that let comparsion  result will return to Null
You can try =ISERROR(IF(A1=K1,TRUE,FALSE)), it will prove it if return to True from iserror()

A1 may have  this  #value or K1 may have this #DIV something like that

@Duncan,
If there was an error in either A1 or K1, that error would display in J1 (where this formula is).

It HAS to be that the cell is formatted as Text OR "Show Formulas" is turned on (not likely).

Hello everyone, while duncanb7's solution worked in one column, for whatever the reason does not work on other columns.  I have looked at all of the cell's formatting and this does not solve the problem totally.
To add more clarification to the origin of this problem; the content of this Excel file comes from the conversion of a pdf to txt, then opened with Excel to form the xlsx file.  I suspect that through all of the conversions the content got corrupt.
This issue is not all that important for me solve at this time, so I am tabling the problem, but issuing the points shortly.
Thank you all for the help.
