I'm using a lot of IF functions in my Spreadsheets to limit DIV and NAME errors with rows that don't have values in them yet. I came 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.
