In this article, we'll walk through how to use the
NOT functions. This article is part of a guided course which you can view here.
XOR returns a true value if an odd number of arguments are true. As an example, let's say that you want to make sure that all checkboxes across fields are checked, and output a message if one is missing.
The formula below evaluates for that by checking for an odd number of arguments using
XOR, and showing a message if that is found.
Note that this works because there are an even number of fields - if there were an odd number of fields (say, 3 of them), and you adjusted the formula to check the third field, the results would be incorrect.
Incorrect result due to an odd number of fields In many cases, using other functions like
AND() can prove more practical than
XOR(), but it's helpful to be familiar with it's functionality and uses.
NOT() reverses the logical value of its argument. For example,
100 > 75 would evaluate as true, but if you wrote
NOT(100 > 75), it would evaluate as false.
