OR

Returns TRUE if any of the arguments are considered TRUE, and FALSE otherwise.

Syntax:

OR(argument1; argument2 ...argument30)

argument1 to argument30 are up to 30 arguments, each of which may be a logical result or value, or a reference to a cell or range.


OR tests every value (as an argument, or in a each referenced cell), and returns TRUE if any of them are TRUE. Any non-zero number is considered to be TRUE. Any text cells in ranges are ignored.

Example:

OR(TRUE; FALSE)

returns TRUE.

OR(0; 5)

returns TRUE, because 5 is considered TRUE.

If cells A5:B8 all contain FALSE, and cell C2 contains =TRUE():

OR(1>2; A5:B8; C2)

returns TRUE, because cell C2 is TRUE.

Issues:

  • Entering =OR(TRUE; FALSE) in a cell correctly returns TRUE, but the display in the formula bar is =OR(1; 0). See Issue 84266.
