### If Function In Excel

1. 1. How to use the <br />‘IF’ function in Excel<br />by<br />familycomputerclub.com<br />http://www.familycomputerclub.com<br />
2. 2. Click inside the cell where you wish to enter your function<br />Enter ‘=‘<br />http://www.familycomputerclub.com<br />
3. 3. 3. In our example we wish<br /> to calculate the amount <br />of VAT based on the<br />Product category<br />4. If the product belongs <br />to the ‘electronic’<br />category then we wish to <br />calculate VAT at 4%<br />5. If the product belongs <br />to the ‘electrical’<br />category then we wish to <br />calculate VAT at 12.5%<br />http://www.familycomputerclub.com<br />
4. 4. 6. We write the function <br />as shown in the formula<br />bar<br />7. We interpret the written<br />function as follows:<br />If the value in the cell B2 is <br />Electronic then we <br />multiply the price with 4%<br />else we multiply the price<br />with12.5%.<br />8. Since the category is<br />‘Text’ we need to use <br />quotes. For numbers we<br />write as is i. e. without <br />any quotes.<br />http://www.familycomputerclub.com<br />
5. 5. http://www.familycomputerclub.com<br />9. The syntax of <br />the function is<br />Important<br />10. You must use quotes, commas <br />and brackets <br />correctly <br />11. With a little<br />practice this is quite easy.<br />
