    harder than a simple IF statement

    I am trying to work out the following problem where:

    Cell A1 = Date
    Column B= Event Name
    Column C= Start Date
    Column D = End date
    Cell E1 = answer

    I am trying to write a formula without macros where the Date in cell A1 can be found within the range of column C and Column D and return the corresponding B (event name or names) in E1

    A simple if statement below works for 1 cell in B, C & D but not when trying to search the entire column. When I try to do that I get a Value error

    Thank you for your quick response. Unfortunately when I tried to use this formula it gave me an error with no help . I actually created a separate spreadsheet and did it exactly the way it was noted with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: harder than a simple IF statement

    I also tried this which returned one result....

    =INDEX(B2:B100,MATCH(1,INDEX((C2:C100<=A1)*(D2:D100>=A1),),FALSE))

    The challenge is that Date in A1 may be found in more than one cell in row C or D so I need to be able to return multiple results. Any thoughts?
