You can use the following formulas to create an IF function with multiple conditions in Excel:

**Method 1: Use IF Function to Test if Multiple Conditions are Met**

=IF(AND(B2="Guard",C2>20),"Yes", "No")

For this formula, if cell **B2** is equal to “Guard” *and* cell **C2** is greater than 20, then the function returns “Yes.” Otherwise it returns “No.”

**Method 2: Use IF Function to Test if One of Several Conditions are Met**

=IF(OR(B2="Guard",C2>20),"Yes", "No")

For this formula, if cell **B2** is equal to “Guard” *or *cell **C2** is greater than 20, then the function returns “Yes.” Otherwise it returns “No.”

The following examples show how to use each formula in practice with the following dataset in Excel:

**Example 1: Use IF Function to Test if Multiple Conditions are Met**

We can type the following formula into cell **D2** to return “Yes” if the value in the Position column is “Guard” *and* the value in the Points column is greater than 20:

=IF(AND(B2="Guard",C2>20),"Yes", "No")

We can then click and drag this formula down to each remaining cell in column D:

The formula returns “Yes” for each row where the value in the Position column is “Guard” *and* the value in the Points column is greater than 20.

If both of these conditions aren’t met in a given row, then the formula returns “No” instead.

**Example 2: Use IF Function to Test if One of Several Conditions are Met**

We can type the following formula into cell **D2** to return “Yes” if the value in the Position column is “Guard” *or *the value in the Points column is greater than 20:

=IF(OR(B2="Guard",C2>20),"Yes", "No")

We can then click and drag this formula down to each remaining cell in column D:

The formula returns “Yes” for each row where the value in the Position column is “Guard” *or *the value in the Points column is greater than 20.

If neither of these conditions are met in a given row, then the formula returns “No” instead.

Note that in both examples, we checked if two conditions were met.

However, you can place as many conditions as you’d like in the **AND()** or **OR()** functions depending on how many conditions you’d like to check.
