I want to formulate 6 CFs in a cell B1 to generate either of the value 1,2,3,4,5,6.

6 CFs are to be formulated to generate either of:
CF1=1: A1 is less than B1; B1 is less than C1 and A1 is less than C1
CF2=2: A1 is less than B1; B1 is greater than or equal to C1 and A1 is less than C1
CF3=3: A1 is less than B1; B1 is greater than or equal to C1 and A1 is greater than or equal to C1
CF4=4: A1 is greater than or equal to B1; B1 is greater than or equal to C1 and A1 is greater than or equal to C1
CF5=5: A1 is greater than or equal to B1; B1 is less than C1 and A1 is greater than or equal to C1
CF6=6: A1 is greater than or equal to B1; B1 is greater than or equal to C1 and A1 is less than C1

What should the formula be in the CF? Thanx in adv.

It is conditional formatting to be done in B1

=and(a1<B1,B1>=C1,A1<C1)
=and(a1<B1,B1>=C1,A1>=C1)

You need to put a space after < so it's not interpreted as the start of an html tag.

CF6=6: A1 is greater than or equal to B1; B1 is greater than or equal to C1 and A1 is less than C1
That one, at least, is impossible.

Aside from the row with the question marks, does the result column look correct?

 A​ B​ C​ D​ 1​ A1​ B1​ C1​ result​ 2​ 0​ 0​ 0​ 4​ 3​ 1​ 0​ 1​ 5​ 4​ 0​ 0​ 1​ ??​ 5​ 0​ 1​ 0​ 3​ 6​ 0​ 1​ 1​ 2​ 7​ 0​ 1​ 2​ 1​

The formula in E2 and down is

=CHOOSE(4*(A2>=B2) + 2*(B2>=C2) + (A2>=C2) + 1, 1, "impossible", 2, 3, "??", 5, "impossible", 4)

What should be the result in row 4?

Just need a place to park this:

 A​ B​ C​ D​ E​ 9​ Case​ A1:B1​ B1:C1​ A1:C1​ CF​ 10​ 0​ <​ <​ <​ 1​ 11​ 1​ <​ <​ >=​ impossible​ 12​ 2​ <​ >=​ <​ 2​ 13​ 3​ <​ >=​ >=​ 3​ 14​ 4​ >=​ <​ <​ ??​ 15​ 5​ >=​ <​ >=​ 5​ 16​ 6​ >=​ >=​ <​ impossible​ 17​ 7​ >=​ >=​ >=​ 4​
