# Learn =AND() function – How to use with Examples

The `=AND()` function in Excel is used to check if all of the supplied conditions are true or not. It returns TRUE if all conditions are true, and FALSE if any of the conditions are false.

### How to use `=AND()` function in formula?:

The `=AND()` function requires at least one argument and can take up to 255 arguments. To use the function, enter “`=AND(`” in a cell and then enter the conditions separated by commas. For example, “`=AND((B2>5,B3<10,B4=TRUE)`” will return TRUE if B2 is greater than 5, B3 is less than 10, and B4 is TRUE.

### Examples of `=AND()` function use:

1. =AND(5>3,7>4,9>6) – returns TRUE
2. =AND(4<2,6>3) – returns FALSE
3. =AND(A1=”apple”,B1=25) – returns TRUE if A1 contains “apple” and B1 is equal to 25, otherwise returns FALSE
4. =AND(C1:C10>0) – returns TRUE if all cells in C1 to C10 are greater than 0, otherwise returns FALSE
5. =AND(ISNUMBER(A1),LEN(A1)>0) – returns TRUE if A1 contains a number and is not empty, otherwise returns FALSE
6. =AND(MONTH(TODAY())=2,DAY(TODAY())=14,YEAR(TODAY())=2023) – returns TRUE if today’s date is February 14, 2023, otherwise returns FALSE
7. =AND(A1:A10<>0) – returns TRUE if any cell in A1 to A10 is not equal to 0, otherwise returns FALSE
8. =AND(A1:B5=”X”) – returns TRUE if all cells in the range A1 to B5 contain “X”, otherwise returns FALSE
9. =AND(LEN(A1:A10)>=5) – returns TRUE if all cells in A1 to A10 contain text with 5 or more characters, otherwise returns FALSE
10. =AND(A1>0,B1<10,C1=”yes”) – returns TRUE if A1 is greater than 0, B1 is less than 10, and C1 contains “yes”, otherwise returns FALSE

### Similar to `=AND()` functions:

• `=OR()`: returns TRUE if any of the supplied conditions are true
• `=NOT()`: returns TRUE if the supplied condition is false, and vice versa
• `=IF()`: returns one value if a condition is true, and another value if it’s false
• `=COUNTIF()`: counts the number of cells in a range that meet a certain condition
• `=SUMIF()`: sums the values in a range that meet a certain condition
