How would I code ElseIf statements to work on text instead of numbers (value)?

Below is the code that I use for cell visibility but it is only for value
Is there a way to get it to recognize text as well? So if, for example, A1='yes' then rows 2:5 are shown but if A1='' then rows 2:5 are hidden

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngIntersect As Range
Set rngIntersect = Intersect(Target, Range("$I$12:$I$1500"))

If Not rngIntersect Is Nothing Then

    If Range("B23").Value = 0 And Range("B24").Value = 0 And Range("B25").Value = 0 Then
            Rows("22:33").EntireRow.Hidden = True
        ElseIf Range("B23").Value > 0 Then
            Rows("22:24").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("32:33").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("25:31").EntireRow.Hidden = True
        ElseIf Range("B23").Value = 0 And Range("B24").Value > 0 Then
            Rows("22").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("23").EntireRow.Hidden = True
            Rows("24").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("25:31").EntireRow.Hidden = True
            Rows("32:33").EntireRow.Hidden = False
        ElseIf Range("B25").Value > 0 Then
            Rows("22").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("23:24").EntireRow.Hidden = True
            Rows("25:33").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("22:33").EntireRow.Hidden = False
        End If

    If Range("B42").Value = 0 And Range("B43").Value = 0 And Range("B44").Value = 0 Then
            'ma return
            Rows("41:52").EntireRow.Hidden = True
        ElseIf Range("B42").Value > 0 Then
            Rows("41:43").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("51:52").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("44:50").EntireRow.Hidden = True
        ElseIf Range("B42").Value = 0 And Range("B43").Value > 0 Then
            Rows("41").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("42").EntireRow.Hidden = True
            Rows("43").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("44:50").EntireRow.Hidden = True
            Rows("51:52").EntireRow.Hidden = False
        ElseIf Range("B44").Value > 0 Then
            Rows("41").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("42:43").EntireRow.Hidden = True
            Rows("44:52").EntireRow.Hidden = False
            Rows("41:52").EntireRow.Hidden = False
        End If
End If
End Sub

I would not need to add .string or .text to the range?

Sorry, it should have been

range("A1").value = "Yes"

range("A1").value = ""
