Excel's logical operators are used in formulas to perform comparisons, and to build formula criteria. Logical operators can be used in formulas on their own, or combined with each other and/or other functions. The table below lists the logical operators available in Excel:

Operator Meaning Example
= Equal to =A1=10
<> Not equal to =A1<>10
> Greater than =A1>100
< Less than =A1<100
>= Greater than or equal to =A1>=75
<= Less than or equal to =A1<0

Note: all Excel formulas must begin with an equal sign (=). This is a syntax requirement, not a logical comparison.

Math operators are listed here. See this list of formulas for many examples of logical operators in formulas. Note that a text value is greater than any number in Excel.
