Before we can compare 2 lists of items, we need to learn some new functions. One of them is the if Function. The syntax for the if function is “=if(define the condition, return a result if the condition is true, return another result if the condition is false).

For example if you have a list of 2 words,

(Cell A1) Excel
(Cell A2) SynergyWorks

In cell B1, enter the formula¬†=if(A1=”Excel”, “It is true that the cell contains the word Excel”, “This cell does not contain the word Excel”).

In this case, B1 will return the true statement and B2 will return the false statement.

That’s all for now. We will cover another function tomorrow.
