Is there a quick way to write a lengthy IF statement?


When Excel reads a statement that returns TRUE or FALSE, these values are interpreted by the formula as 1 or 0, respectively.

Therefore, these two statements return the same result:

=IF ( ISNUMBER (A1) , B1 , 0 )

=B1 * ISNUMBER (A1)

This can be a useful trick to improve the readability and speed of writing some formulae.
