RE: IF function  Is it possible to return current cell value when using IF function
Answers

@marty whiteman I'm not sure I understand what you are asking...
If you mean a formula and a cell value in the same cell, you can't have a formula and a cell value at the same time in a cell, if that is what you are talking about.
If by current cell value, you mean the value from another cell, then you can do that.

@Darren Mullen  thank you for your response. Sorry for not being more clear. I was thinking in terms of a formula within the cell that I want to change the value in. Would you mind posting a formula example?

@marty whiteman What's wrong with the formula that you posted.... is it not doing what you want?

@Darren Mullen  Short Answer: No
Let me tighten up that example using 3 columns
Column 1  Done (checkbox  checkmark) value = 0
Column 2  Recurring (checkbox  star) value =1
Column 3  Status (symbol "RYGGray") value="Red"
=IF(And(Done@row=1,Recurring@row=1,"Gray")
If the conditions are met, a gray symbol will appear in Status, however if is not met, then the column value of "Red" is replaced with "".
Is there a way to use the IF function and return the original value of the cell, which in this case is "Red"?
