Hello,

I have the following Excel formula:

=IF(OR(K46:K52)="Yes","Additional Items","")

I would like to alter it so that if any cell between K46:K52 is "Yes", the cell would return the value "Additional Items" - otherwise the cell would return blank.

Is this possible?

Thanks

Hi

Is this what you are looking for:

=IF(K46:K51 = "Yes","","Additional Items")

Open in new window


In what cell do you put your formula?

=IF(OR(K46:K51 = "Yes"),"","Additional Items")

I've tried both solutions, and they each return the #value error. The formula works when the range is just K46 - but when I increase the range, I get the #value error.

Try my formula. It looks for a match within the range and when it is found it displays "Additional Items". The IFERROR function handles the case when the Match fails and displays an empty string

Could also simplify this a bit
=IFERROR(IF(MATCH("Yes", K46:K52, 0), "Additional Items"),"")
