Figure 1: using ISEVEN function to check even numeric values

Syntax of the formula

=ISEVEN (value)


  • Value– is the numeric value we want to check

Understanding the formula

The ISEVEN function helps us to check if a numeric value is an even number. This formula returns TRUE if the numeric value is even, and FALSE if it is odd.

In figure 1 above, we have proceeded as follows;

  • Get the numeric values in the excel spreadsheet
  • In cell B2, we specify our formula, i.e. =ISEVEN (A2)
  • We then press Enter, to get the result.
  • After we have the answer for cell B2, we copy the formula down to other cells to get the results.

Note that if a cell does not contain a numeric value, the ISEVEN function will return a #VALUE error.
