    I need help with a formula that will evaluate whether a number is divisible by 8 (no remainder). If the number in a cell (and it can be any number) is divisible by 8, formula returns Yes, if not, No.

    Thanks.

    One of the ways would be to use the MOD FUNCTION

    =IF(MOD(A2,8),"not divisible by 8","divisible by 8")

    Hi,

    Use the MOD function. If the test cell is A1, then try:

    =IF(MOD(A1,8)=0,"Yes","No")

    HTH,
    Jay

    =IF(MOD(A1,8),"No","Yes")

    or

    =MOD(A1,8) and custom format the cell containing this formula as...

    [=0]"Yes";"No"
