# IF function with AND Function Issue

Hello,
I am trying to expand on the following formula:
=IF(B1="","","Hi")

Verbally it reads, "If B1 equals blank, put blank, other wise put HI."

What I'am trying to do is add another criteria for the blank portion such as:
"If B1 equals blank AND John, put blank, otherwise put hi."

I don't know how to introduce the additional criteria of John to return a blank result.

Do you hate GETPIVOTDATA?
Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

I think you meant
"If B1 equals blank OR John, put blank, otherwise put hi."

If so, try
=IF(OR(B1="",B1="John"),"","Hi")
