formula to compare a complete row to find "yes" "no" or blank

  • I've tried a few different things thinking I was on the right track based on the IF, and AND function.


    I need to find if
    cell A1 = "Yes" and B1 ="Yes" C1 = "Yes"
    cell A1 = "Yes" and B1= "No" C1= "Yes"
    cell A1= "No" and B1 ="Yes" C1= "Yes"
    cell A1= "No" and B1 ="No" C1= "No"
    cell A1= "Blank" C1 = "Blank"


    I am not sure what formula to use for this
    any help appreciated

    What about B1 being blank? And what are you wanting to return if these combinations occur?

    Hi
    thanks for the reply and welcome here
    I am not concerned with B1 if A1 is blank B1 can be "yes" or "no" I only need C1 to be blank if A1 is blank

    I'm sorry, but I am not clear on what you are asking of us. Can you make it any clearer, please?

    I would like to paste a formula into C to give these values depending on what is in A or B
    A B C
    1 YES YES YES
    2 YES NO YES
    3 NO YES YES
    4 NO NO NO
    5 YES
    6 NO
    7

    OK. I think this will cover it:


    =IF(A1="YES","YES",IF(AND(A1="NO",B1="YES"),"YES",IF(AND(A1="NO",B1=""),"NO","NO")))

    thank you I only needed to add the No
    =IF(A1="YES","YES",IF(AND(A1="NO",B1="YES"),"YES",IF(AND(A1="NO",B1="NO"),"NO",IF(AND(A1="NO",B1=""),"NO","")))):thumbup:
    Your help is most appreciated

    I changed my formula above to cover that, but your version will work, too. Glad to have helped! :)


    =IF(A1="YES","YES",IF(AND(A1="NO",B1="YES"),"YES",IF(AND(A1="NO",B1=""),"NO","NO")))
