or use NOT:
=NOT(ISBLANK(cell))
or
NOT(cell="")

Note that ISBLANK doesn't see a formula returning "" as blank (also if a cell formula returnng "" is copied to a cell as values, it too won't be seen as blank by ISBLANK), so the cell="" is probably safer for you.

Or using :

Cell <>""

or,

=A1<>""

It return the same result

Or you could use COUNTBLANK instead which recognizes the null string ""
