How to convert Boolean true/false to number (1/0) or text in Excel?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2019-09-26

Sometimes, excel formulas return the Boolean values (TRUE or FALSE) in Excel. And you can edit the original formula to convert the Boolean values (TRUE or FALSE) to number (1 or 0) or text in Excel easily.


Convert Boolean values (TRUE or FALSE) to number (1 or 0) in Excel

In this section, I will introduce three methods to convert Boolean values (TRUE or FALSE) to number (1 or 0) in Excel.  

Add -- before original formula

Change original formula to =--(original_formula), and the Boolean values will be converted to number 1 or 0 automatically. For example, the original formula is =B2>C2, you can change it to =--(B2>C2).

Combine INT function and original formula

Combine the INT function and original formula as =INT(original_formula), and the Boolean values will be converted to number 1 or 0 automatically. Let’s say the original formula is =B2>C2, and you can convert it to =INT(B2>C2).

Multiply original formula by 1

You can multiply the return Boolean values (TRUE or FALSE) by 1, and then the TRUE will change to 1, and FALSE to 0. Assuming the original formula is =B2>C2, you can change it to =(B2>C2)*1.

Note: You can also divide original formula by 1 or add 0 to original formula to change the return TRUE to 1 and FALSE to 0. Follow above example, change the original formula to =(B2>C2)/1 or =(B2>C2)+0.

Convert Boolean values (TRUE or FALSE) to text in Excel

If you want to convert the Boolean values (TRUE or FALSE) to certain text, says Yes or No, you can change the formula as below:

=IF(original_formula,"Yes","NO")

For example, the original formula is =B2>C2, you can change the formula to =IF(B2>C2,"Yes","NO"). This new formula will change TRUE to Yes, and change FALSE to No. See screenshot:

Note: In the new formula, Yes and No are the specified texts you will change the Boolean values to, and you can change them to any texts as you need.
