# How to Use the Excel TRUE Function

We can use the TRUE function to return a result if the criteria is satisfied. The steps below will walk through the process.

Figure 1: How to Use the TRUE Function

## Syntax

`=TRUE()`

## Formula

`=IF(B4>60,TRUE())`

## Setting up the Data

• We will set up the data by inputting the SUBJECTS into Column A
• Column B will contain the scores for each subject
• Column C is where we want the formula to return the result for the TRUE Function

Figure 2: Setting up the Data

## Using the True Function

• We will click on Cell C4
• We will insert the formula below into the cell
`=`
`IF(B4>60,TRUE())`
• We will press the enter key

Figure 3: Output of the TRUE function for Cell B4

• We will click on Cell C4 again
• We will double-click on the fill handle (the small plus sign at the bottom right of Cell C4) and drag down to copy the formula into the other cells

Figure 4: Result of the TRUE Function

## Explanation

The value in the cell is checked if it is greater than 60. If it is, the IF Function returns TRUE and FALSE if otherwise.

## Note

If we enter logical expressions such as =B4>60 into Cell C4, we will still get the same return value of TRUE.

I filtered data in column A (it is labeled ID #) of a data set. On my next worksheet, column A is also the ID #, but it is a different data set. I want to filter the ID #'s the same for the two sheets, but how do I do that being that I am working with two different sets of data?
