How can I translate this if excel formula: If cell a2 is not equal to “UP” OR “Down” then a1 value is “1” NOTE: I want to place the formula in a1. thanks

### Excel Facts

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

#### VoG

##### Legend
Try

=IF(AND(A2<>"Up",A2<>"Down"),1,"")

Hi

Perhaps:

=IF(OR(A2={"UP","DOWN"}),"",1)

Hi,

=IF(NOT(OR(A2="UP",A2="DOWN")),1,0)

could be changed to:
=IF(AND(A2<>"UP",A2<>"DOWN"),1,0)

or even:
=(A2<>"UP")*(A2<>"DOWN")

kind regards,
Erik
