NOT: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use NOT in Google Sheets?

NOT can be used in Google Sheets to exclude values from a range or to filter data. For example, if you want to exclude the value "Apple" from a range of cells, you can use the formula =NOT(A1:A5) to return the values in the range A1:A5 except for "Apple". You can also use the filter function to filter data by excluding certain values. For example, if you want to filter a list of fruits to only show fruits that are not apples, you can use the formula =filter(Fruits,NOT(A1:A5)) to return a list of fruits that includes "Banana", "Orange", "Pear", etc.
