XOR: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use XOR in Google Sheets?

In Google Sheets, the XOR (exclusive OR) operator is used to return the difference between two numbers. For example, if you want to find the difference between the values in cells A1 and A2, you would use the following formula:

=A1-A2

This formula will return the value in cell A1 if the values in cells A1 and A2 are different, and it will return the value in cell A2 if the values in cells A1 and A2 are the same.

What is the syntax of XOR in Google Sheets?

The syntax of the XOR (exclusive-OR) operator in Google Sheets is as follows:

=XOR(A,B)

This function returns a value of 1 if and only if the two input values are different. If the two input values are the same, the function returns a value of 0.

What is an example of how to use XOR in Google Sheets?

The XOR function in Google Sheets can be used to compare two values and return a boolean value indicating whether they are different. For example, the following statement will return True if the value in A is different from the value in B, and False if they are the same:

=XOR(A,B)

When should you not use XOR in Google Sheets?

There are a few instances when you should not use XOR in Google Sheets. One such instance is when you are trying to multiply two numbers. XOR will return the result of the bitwise operation, not the mathematical operation. Additionally, XOR cannot be used with logical operators, such as AND and OR.

What are some similar formulae to XOR in Google Sheets?

The XOR (exclusive OR) formula in Google Sheets is: =XOR(B2,C2)

The XOR (exclusive OR) formula in Excel is: =XOR(B2:B10,C2:C10)

The XOR (exclusive OR) formula in Google Sheets is: =XOR(B2:B10,C2:C10)
