A client wanted to use an IF statement but instead of the answer showing Y and N, she wanted to show a tick or a cross.
First, find the relevant symbols and enter them into a cell (not the one you want the answer in); to do this, from the Insert tab, in the Symbols group, click Symbol. From the Font dropdown, select Wingdings,
find the tick and click Insert. Similarly for the cross.
Create your formula in the usual way, but copy the relevant symbol into the formula.
Format the cell or cells containing the formula as having font Wingdings, and you will have a tick or cross showing in the appropriate cells.
