# Need to input a Range of Dates in a Formula

I am working on a project that calculates how often each of our vendors are "On Time" with their shipments. I need to figure out how to input a range of dates in a formula. For example "1/1/2014 through 3/31/2014". This is the formula I have now =COUNTIFS(E:E,"Vendor A",J:J,"Late",H:H,N5)
That refers to =COUNTIFS("Vendor Name Column","Vendor A","Early/On Time/Late Column","Late","Date Received Column",???)
How do I put a range of dates where the question mark is, so that it will pull any date in that range from the Date Received Column?

### Excel Facts

Using Function Arguments with nested formulas
If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.
=COUNTIFS(\$E:\$E,"Vendor A",\$J:\$J,"Late",\$H:\$H,">="&DATEVALUE("1/1/2014"), \$H:\$H,"<="&DATEVALUE("31/3/2014"))

or

=COUNTIFS(\$E:\$E,"Vendor A",\$J:\$J,"Late",\$H:\$H,">="&DATE(2014,1,1), \$H:\$H,"<="&DATE(2014,3,31))

This is perfect. Thanks a lot

You're welcome.
