    Count how many times a number appears within a range of two numbers

    Hi,
    I want to find how many entries are from a certain state (in Australia) e.g. how many people who are in victoria, which has a postcode range between 3000-3999. I have the people's postcode within my data.
    I have looked through the forums and the solutions posted there didn't work for me!!
    I have quite a big data set, so i would prefer not to do it by hand!
    Thanks,
    Marissa

    this one doesn't seem to work...it returns a number almost double what it's supposed to be!

    Try this one:

    adjust the range as required, and use "Ctrl-Shift-Enter" once you've copied it to the formula bar.

    Here's another way... Assuming that B2:B100 contains the postal code, try...

    =COUNTIF(B2:B100,">=3000")-COUNTIF(B2:B100,">3999")

    Hope this helps!
