In cell A1, I have a 4 digit number. If that number is between 5000 and 5999, I want YES to appear in cell B1. If the number is less than or more than that range, I want NO to appear in B1. In Lotus, I would have used this formula in B1:

@IF(A1>4999#AND#A1<6000,"YES","NO")

with #AND# being the operative to give me the range. I can't find the equivalent operative in Excel. Excel's AND function doesn't provide for a range and it only returns true or false. Can anyone help me, I'm sure it's possible and easy, just can't seem to locate it.

=(A1>=5000)*(A1<=5999)

Custom format the formula cell as:

[=0]"NO";[=1]"YES"

Thanks, LAS, worked great. Curious, though. I entered 5500 in A1 and changed the formula in B1 to:

=IF(AND(A1=5000,A1=5500),"YES","NO")

and it return NO. Any idea why?

it is not possible for a1 to be both 5000 and 5500 so it will always say NO.

It returned NO because natutrally enough it couldn't satisfy both criteria i.e. it couldn't equal both 5000 and 5500

Aladin - doesn't work. 5500 returns a zero, not a one. What is the * symbol. Is it a multiplier or the symbol for "and"?

O.K, thanks, Bisley & Bolo. If I understand correctly, it satisfied the less than/more than criteria but not both the equal to criteria.

If you did want either case, simply substitute
OR for ANDin the "traditional" formula
or
+ for * in Aladin's boolean formula.
