I'm using a lot of IF functions in my Spreadsheets to limit DIV and

across a situation today where I need to test text - ie I need to
test for a month's name. I tried =IF(Cell Ref="AUG",do
calculation."") But this gives NAME error. Is it possible to test
text in this way?
Yes. The only thing wrong with your example is the dot separating the
second and third arguments - which presumably should be a comma.
There is nothing in the basic structure you are illustrating here
that would stimulate a #NAME? error, so the problem must be in your
cell reference or the "do calculation" - the parts you've not shown.
I trust this helps.
