    Referencing a cell (range instead of 1 number)

    I have a working formula that references a cell. That cell can have one number in it or greater than a number or less than. (I.E. for all data points greater than 1 is just >1 in that cell)

    Is there a way to set a range instead of one number. I.E. include all data point that are between 2 and 4?

    Thanks

    Can you elaborate a bit on what you mean... perhaps with examples.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    Re: Referencing a cell (range instead of 1 number)

    So my formula is a countifs, and one of the stipulations is a reference to a cell. In that cell I can either input one of the numbers that appear in the range of cells mentioned or I can input a greater than or less than sign before a number. All of these work perfectly. What I'm wondering is if it's possible to instead of just have 1 number, or just greater than one number or less than one number, i have a range of numbers, like 2 to 4 instead of 2 or >2 or <4.

    With Countifs, that would really mean AND() and you would need to have two separate cells, one with the less than and one with the greater than... and then reference each separately

    e.g. =Countifs(A1:A10,B1,A1:A10,C1)
