    I am using Excel as a gradebook and would like to assign letter grades to a number range (100-89.5 = A, etc.). Could you help me with the formula or function?

    =VLOOKUP(A1,{0,"F";...;89.5,"A"},2)

    What's are the other grade demarcations?

    Are they...

    =VLOOKUP(A1,{0,"F";59.5,"D";69.5,"C";79.5,"B";89.5,"A"},2)

    What is etc, I mean the rest?

    You can make a 2-column list with number grades (expressed as intervals) in the first column and corresponding letter grades in the second column. Give a name to the range of this 2-column list, e.g., LGRADES, via the Name Box. And, use:

    =VLOOKUP(E1,LGRADES,2)

    where E1 houses a number grade.
