MS Excel Using IF AND Nested If Function: What is Nested IF and Use of AND in combination of IF Condition? Generally the IF() formula is used to specify a certain condition and if that condition is fulfilled, we can perform calculations when the criteria/condition meets or does not meet. It means that we have the option to output different results depending upon the result of IF condition. But IF condition can place only a single condition and there are situations where we need multiple criteria for display of results.

Here comes the use of AND() that allows to apply more than one conditions: an example is placed below:
A) Simple IF condition: =IF(A1=100, Value if true, values if false)
B) IF condition with And: =IF(AND(A1=100,B1>50,C1Step 1:
