An example may be easily to understand. We will show you how to determine if the dates in Column A fall between 7/1/2008 and 12/31/2009, and check whether they fall on a weekend too.
For example, you need to determine expenses occurred on specific dates whether falls on project duration from 7/1/2008 to 13/31/2009. And you can get the answer with following steps:
Step 1: In the blank cell, says Cell B2, enter the formula of =IF(AND(A2>$B$1,A2<$c$1),a2, FALSE), and press the Enter key.
This formula will check whether the date falls between 7/1/2008 and 12/31/2009. If the date falls in this period, it will return the date; if the date does not falls in this period, it will return the text of FALSE.
Step 2: Select the Range of B2:B18, and click the Home >> Fill >> Down to copy this formula to this column.
Now you can identify whether a date falls within range or not.
With the Select Specific Cells utility of Kutools for Excel, you can easily find out the date falls between two dates and then select them immediately.

This formula will identify whether a date falls on weekends or not. If the date falls on weekends, it will returns the date; if the date does not fall on weekends, it will returns the text of FALSE.
Step 2: Select the range of B2: B18, and paste the formula to each cell in the selected range with clicking Home >> Fill >> Down.
