    @Mordecaii I found it by looking up excel 2010 function inside if on Google, which returned this link: office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/…. Your solution was found under Example 1.

As a general rule, the = sign is used only at the beginning of a formula, unless there is a comparison with the equal to operator, which is also a = sign.
