# How to Use XOR function in Google Sheets in 2020?

The XOR function returns TRUE if an odd number of the provided arguments are logically true, and FALSE otherwise.

Parts of an XOR formula

XOR(logical_expression1, [logical_expression2, …])

1. Part
2. Description
3. Notes

logical_expression1
An expression or reference to a cell containing an expression that represents some logical value, e.g. “TRUE” or “FALSE,” or an expression that can be coerced to a logical value.

logical_expression2
More expressions of cell references that represent logical values.
A second logical expression and any additional expressions are optional.

Sample formulas:

• XOR(TRUE, FALSE, TRUE)
• XOR(A2=TRUE, A3=FALSE)
• XOR(A1:A10, B1:B10)
• XOR(0, 1, 2, 3)

Notes

The number 0 is logically false. All other numbers (including negative numbers) are logically true.
The XOR function accepts both logical value and range parameters.
Returns TRUE if an odd number of arguments are TRUE.
