Google Sheets Function: OR

The OR function checks each test and returns TRUE if at least one of the tests is TRUE and FALSE otherwise.

This function is most often used in combination with other functions (notably the IF function).


=OR(logical_expression1, logical_expression2, ...)

The formula then becomes:
