# Conditional Expressions for Formulas Updated 2 years ago by dustin keir

You can create conditional expressions in your formula user-defined fields. Conditional expressions use the If expression to evaluate comparison statements and return values based on the results of the statements.

Conditional expressions use the following syntax:

`If (Comparison Statement, True Value, False Value)`

Comparison Statement – Uses comparison operators to compare two values. Comparison statements can use the following operators:

• == to check that two values are equal to each other.

• != to check that two values are not equal to each other.

• > to check that the first value is greater than the second value.

• < to check that the first value is less than the second value.

• >= to check that the first value is greater than or equal to the second value.

• <= to check that the first value is less than or equal to the second value.

Comparison statements can be combined with logical operators:

• Or – Combines two comparison statements where either one of the statements is true.

• And – Combines two comparison statements where both of the statements is true.

• Not – Negates a comparison statement.

• True Value – The value of the expression when the comparison statement is true. It can also be combined with other expressions.

• False Value – The value of the expression when the comparison statement is false. You can include other conditional statements to supply different answers for different values.
