5 Methods to Check If a Value Is Between Two Numbers in Excel

We have taken a dataset of students’ exam marks. We would like to know whose mark is between 40 to 60. Now we will use different formulas and methods to check if the value is between the two numbers.

Excel Check if Value is Between Two Numbers

Here, we have used Microsoft Excel 365 version, you may use any other version according to your convenience.


1. Using IF Function to Check If Value Is Between Two Numbers

We can use Excel IF function to check if the value is between two numbers. You need to follow the simple steps stated below.

📌 Steps:

  • Select cell D5 and write the formula below.

=IF(C5>=$G$7,C5<=$G$6)

Here,

C5=Mark of the student.

G7=Lower side of the mark.

G6=upper side of the mark.

  • Press ENTER.

The syntax =IF(C5>=$G$7,C5<=$G$6) checks if C5 lies between cell G6 & G7. If the logic is actual, it will return TRUE. Otherwise, it will return FALSE.

2. Implementing AND Function to Find out Value Between Two Numbers

We can also use only AND function to check if a value is between two numbers. Follow the steps.

📌 Steps:

  • Move to cell D5 and write down the formula.

=AND(C5>=$G$7, C5<=$G$6)

Here,

C5=Mark of the student.

G7=Lower side of the mark.

G6=upper side of the mark.

  • Press ENTER.

The syntax =AND(C5>=$G$7,C5<=$G$6) checks if C5 lies between cells G6 and G7. If the logic is true, it will return TRUE. Otherwise, it will return FALSE.

3. Using IF and AND Functions to Check If Value Is Between Two Numbers

We can combine Excel IF and AND functions to check if the value is between the two numbers.

📌 Steps:

  • Initially, write down the formula in cell D5.

=IF(AND(C5>=$G$6,C5<=$G$5),”Yes”,”NO”)

C5=Mark of the student.

G7=Lower side of the mark.

G6=upper side of the mark.

  • Press ENTER.

Formula Breakdown:

AND(C5>=$G$6,C5<=$G$5)→checks whether the value of C5 lies between cell G5 and G6.

IF(AND(C5>=$G$6,C5<=$G$5),”Yes”,”NO”)→If the logic is true then it will return YES and if the logic is not true it will return NO.

In Excel, you can use a limit of maximum value and minimum value range and check if a value is between two numbers of the assigned minimum and maximum value. For this, you can use AND, MIN, and MAX functions.

📌 Steps:

  • Firstly, select cell E5 and write the following formula.

=AND(D5>=MIN(B5,C5),D5<=MAX(B5,C5))

Here,

B5=Start Mark.

C5=End Mark.

D5=Obtained Mark.

  • Press ENTER.

Formula Breakdown:

AND(D5>=MIN(B5,C5),D5<=MAX(B5,C5))→checks if D5 is between the minimum value of B5 and C5 and the maximum value of B5 and C5. If the logic is true, it will return to TRUE. Else, it will return FALSE.
