# A quick way to place numbers into a banding group?

Is there a quick way, either via Excel or via VBA? I have two columns of data, column A contains the numbers 1 - 20000 in numerical order.

What I need in column B is to place them in a band of 50.......so numbers 1 to 50 in column A will have "1 to 50" in column B, numbers 51-100 in column A will have "51 to 100" in column B.

I started off with

Code:
``=IF(A2<51,"1 to 50",IF(AND(A2>50,A2<101),"51 to 100",IF(AND(A2>100,A2<151),"101 to 150",IF(AND(A2>150,A2<201),"151 to 200",IF(AND(A2>200,A2<251),"201 to 250",IF(AND(A2>250,A2<301),"251 to 300",IF(AND(A2>300,A2<351),"301 to 350",IF(AND(A2>350,A2<401),"351 to 400",IF(AND(A2>400,A2<451),"401 to 450",IF(AND(A2>450,A2<501),"451 to 500",IF(AND(A2>500,A2<551),"501 to 550")))))))))))``

but that's so time consuming to write plus I believe Excel has a limit on nested IF statements.

Any help appreciated and seasons greetings to you all.

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Try this:

=FLOOR(A1-1,50)+1&" to "&CEILING(A1,50)

Try this:

=FLOOR(A1-1,50)+1&" to "&CEILING(A1,50)
That is ridiculously brilliant! Thank you!
