The Excel ISEVEN function returns TRUE when a numeric value is even, and FALSE for odd numbers. ISEVEN will return the #VALUE error when a value is not numeric.

**Syntax**:= ISEVEN (value)

The ISEVEN function syntax has the following arguments:

**Number**(required argument) – This is the value we wish to test. If it is not an integer, the value is truncated.

**Example**: Let’s look at some Excel ISEVEN function examples and explore how to use the ISEVEN function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel:

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A2)

**Result**:

Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following ISEVEN examples would return:

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A3)**Result**: FALSE

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A4)**Result**: TRUE

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A5)**Result**: TRUE

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A6)**Result**: TRUE

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A7)**Result**: FALSE

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A8)**Result**: FALSE

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A9)**Result**: TRUE

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A10)**Result**: FALSE

**Syntax**: =ISEVEN(A11)**Result**: FALSE

**Note**:

Use the ISEVEN function to check if a numeric **value** is an even number. ISEVEN will return TRUE when a numeric **value** is even and FALSE when a numeric **value** is odd. If **value** is not numeric, ISEVEN will return the #VALUE error.

For example, =ISEVEN(A1) will return TRUE if A1 contains the number 2 and FALSE if A1 contains the number 3.

Usually, **value** is supplied as a cell address.

ISEVEN is part of a group of functions called the IS functions that all return the logical values TRUE or FALSE.
