# Google Sheets: How to Use FILTER Function with OR

You can use the following basic syntax in Google Sheets to use the FILTER function with OR logic:

`=FILTER(A1:C10, (A1:A10="A")+(C1:C10<20))`

This filter returns the rows in the range A1:C10 where the value in column A is equal to “A” or the value in column C is less than 20.

Note: The plus (+) sign is used as an OR operator in Google Sheets.

The following example shows how to use this syntax in practice.

## Example: How to Use Filter Function with OR in Google Sheets We can use the following formula to filter for all rows where the team is equal to “A” or the points is less than 20:

`=FILTER(A1:C10, (A1:A10="A")+(C1:C10<20))`

The following screenshot shows how to use this formula in practice: The only rows returned are the ones where the team is equal to “A” or the points is less than 20.

We can also use more plus signs (+) in the FILTER function to apply even more OR operators.

For example, we can use the following syntax to filter for rows where the team is equal to “A” or the position is “Guard” or points is greater than 15:

`=FILTER(A1:C10, (A1:A10="A")+(B1:B10="Guard")+(C1:C10>15))`

The following screenshot shows how to use this formula in practice: This FILTER function returns the rows in the original dataset where any of the three conditions are met.
