How do I make it so that if any number in the range C6:D11 on PAGE is less than zero, output "Some words" and if not, output "Some other words"?

I tried using =IF(PAGE!C6:D11 < 0, "Some words", "Some other words"), but I that gave me an error saying "Range has no entry corresponding to this cell".

The problem is that you are passing the IF function an array (range), while it only supports a single value.


=IF(MIN(PAGE!C6:D11) < 0, "Some words", "Some other words")

The MIN function finds the minimum value in your range.
