Download Excel File: https://people.highline.edu/mgirvin/YouTubeExcelIsFun/EMT1529.xlsx This video teaches all about AND Logical tests and OR Logical Test and the intricacies of how to construct and use them in Excel, including single cell logical Test sand Array Logical tests. It also examines how Excel Functions and Features interprets FALSE and 0 (zero) as FALSE and TRUE and Any Non-Zero Number as a TRUE. Then we take the lessons of Logical tests and Apply them in Various ways in the FILTER ARRAY Function. We also get to see a great trick from Peter Bartholomew about how to create a shorter formula than the one as seen in Excel Magic Trick 1521. We also entertain a question from John Borg about an OR Logical Test inside the FILTER Function.

Hi Mike. I really enjoyed the video -- but then, I should! I particularly liked the introduction on Boolean operators in Excel. I was going to make some cheeky remark along the lines of 'it's almost like you're a professional teacher' :) but then I saw the post from Richard Hay: "Superb pedagogy in the fist 10 minutes to present AND vs OR -- best I have ever seen on this topic! :) " Guess I should just run with that. I could post a challenge. How would you use MMULT to develop a formula that performs some form of COUNTIFS/SUMIFS but, instead of working on a predetermined number of fields, both the array and the criterion range are dynamic and can be changed without requiring additional parameters in the aggregation formula. What reminded me of it was that it requires a further step in the journey down 'Boolean Way'.

+ExcelIsFun I have sent a couple of files via LinkedIn. Centuries ago I believe refined young ladies used to demonstrate their needlework technique by producing samplers. I seem to have gone through a similar phase a few years ago with Excel, only lacking the refinement!

What is your entry into the challenge, Peter?
ExcelIsFun (21 hours ago)
I am a teacher, Peter. I have taught in the Business Department at Highline college for 16 years, and before that I traveled the world teaching people about Boomerangs : ) Although, maybe "cheerleader" is a more correct term, than using "teacher" : )

Thank you, Mike. The 365 only made me think about the software situation in private businesses and the public sector. (not in the US) What I have seen: they have Office 2007, and have no intention to upgrade even if there may be a good offer from Microsoft, and several advantages of the new features. Once I was asked to downgrade from 2010 to 2007 (this happened in 2016) so as not to be different. Of course, many features work fine in 2007, no problem, but the advanced features that help efficient data management are far more sophisticated in the advanced versions. Now I have 2013, and I do not downgrade. (sorry for being a bit off-topic)

Yes, it is a problem in some entities, like your work and mine, where they will not allow us to have the latest version, even though the entity would be greatly benefited with the new tools... Thanks for watching, M. SZ.!!!

Nice Mike, Peter and John.. thanks for sharing your wisdom and wizardry with array functions and AND and OR logical tests. Can't wait to get the functionality so that I can test and practice your methods and techniques. Thumbs up!

Thanks for the Thumbs Up and Support, Wayne! The AND and OR Logcial Test stuff can be used in the new Array Functions, and all the old excel features such as Formulas, Functions, Array Formulas and Data Analysis : )

Another outstanding video!! Superb pedagogy in the fist 10 minutes to present AND vs OR--best I have ever seen on this topic! :)

Glad you like the AND and OR - since it is so much of what we do in Data Analysis... Thanks for your support, Richard.

Hi Mike, amazing video as always ! In the first example, you should also populate the "if_empty" part of the formula, because if there's no match for both criteria, ie. Google and Sioux, you'll get an error
ExcelIsFun (4 days ago)
Great idea, Unirotovibe!!! Thanks for the Uni-roto-VIBE : )

With the new Dynamic Array enabled Excel, I noticed some of my old files were added SINGLE( ) in the formulas. I remember a while ago you told a joke about DATE( )… maybe it's about time to renew that joke, by adding DATE( ), SINGLE( )...etc...For jokes that only Excel Pro will laugh...
ExcelIsFun (4 days ago)
100% TRUE!!!! I think the formula is like this: DATE(SINGLE("Your Name"),"Where You What To Go", "Who You Want To Date")

Bye bye advanced filter, hello FILTER! Thanks Mike
ExcelIsFun (4 days ago)
You are welcome, Dave!!! I still think there are a few complex Filters that Advanced Filtere might do with more ease than FILTER..., but for many tasks FILTER WILL be easier : ) Thanks for support : )
