To add border to cells by IF statement, you can apply the powerful Conditional Formatting feature, and then add the IF function to its rule.
For example, here I have a range of cells, I want to add border to the cell if it is greater than 450.
1. Select the range you want to use, and click Home > Conditional Formatting > New Rule. See screenshot:
2. Then in the New Formatting Rule dialog, choose Use a formula to determine which cells to format, and type this formula =$B2>450 into the Format values where this formula is true textbox. See screenshot:
In the formula B2 is the first cell of the range you want to add border by If function.
3. Click Format to open Format Cells dialog, click Border tab, and then specify the border style as you need. See screenshot:
4. Click OK > OK to close dialogs. Now if the cell is greater than 450, the cell will be added border around.
