I'm creating a cell to determine the number of raffle ticket that can be earned by an employee. I would like to have a formula in K1 that if the cell range from A1:J1 contains letters "A" or any numbers, the "true" result is "0" and the "false result is "2"

Your requirements are not clear to me.

...if the cell range from A1:J1 contains letters "A"Do you mean a single A in

anycell should return TRUE?

Do you mean an A must be present ineverycell to return TRUE?

Do you mean A as part of a word e.g. DAD or as a stand alone "A"?

...or any numbersDo mean stand alone numbers e.g. 456 or as part of a string e.g. D45t, 323-456, etc?

Please clarify what your data looks like so we can come up with the best solution.

A means any cell that contains letter

Any number means numbers fr 1 to 600

Try this: =IF(OR(COUNTIF(A1:J1,"=A"),SUM(A1:J1)),0,2)

That is actually a shorter version of this:

=IF(OR(COUNTIF(A1:J1,"=A")>0,SUM(A1:J1)>0),0,2)

You don't need the

>0because Excel will consider a0result from both the COUNTIF and SUM functions to be FALSE. i.e. two0'smakes the OR FALSE. Anything else makes it not FALSE, which Excel considers to be TRUE.I know that sounds weird, but in most cases Excel doesn't really determine if a condition is TRUE or FALSE. It actually only determines if the condition is FALSE. If it's not FALSE, it must be TRUE.
