Is it possible for ISNUMBER to return values other than True/False?

For example, if the cell I'm targeting contains literally any numeric value and not a word value, can I make it return "Number" instead of "True"

For whatever reason I could find literally nothing on this subject outside of searching for specific values, which I do not want.

Any help would be appreciated
 

Excel Facts

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

Try wrapping the ISNUMBER function in an IF function, i.e.:
Code:
=IF(ISNUMBER(...),"Number","")

Thank you.

This has been one of the most egregious "Duh" moments I've ever had.
