SUMMARY

When the "value_if_false" argument is omitted from the IF() command and the "logical_test" argument returns FALSE, the word "FALSE" is displayed in the cell containing the formula.

To display a blank cell when the "logical_test" argument returns FALSE, enter two quotation marks (without a space between them) in place of the optional "value_if_false" argument, as shown below:

   =IF(logical_test,value_if_true,"")

For more information on the IF() command, see pages 227-228 in the "Microsoft Excel Function Reference," version 4.0. If you are using version 3.0, see pages 125-126 (form 1) in the "Microsoft Excel Function Reference" version 3.0. If you are using Excel 2.20, see pages 43-44 in the "Microsoft Excel Functions and Macros" version 2.2.
