This article describes the formula syntax and usage of the OR function in GoFormz. Use the OR function, one of the logical functions, to return a "true" if any argument is "true"; returns "false" if all arguments are "false".


OR(value1, [value2], ...)

The OR function syntax has the following arguments:

  • value1, value2, ... value1 is required, subsequent values are optional. 1 to 255 conditions you want to test that can be either "true" or "false".


  • The arguments must evaluate to logical values, such as "true" or "false"
  • If an array or reference argument contains text or empty cells, those values are ignored.
  • If the specified range contains no logical values, the field will be left blank.


=OR("true")One argument is "true""true"
=OR(1+1=1,2+2=5)All arguments evaluate to "false""false"
=OR("true","false","true")At least one Argument is "true""true"
=IF(OR(1+1=1,2+2=5,5+5=10),"answer if true","answer if false")One of the OR arguments is trueanswer if true
