## How to count/sum the cells greater than but less than a number?

There is a range of data in a worksheet as shown below, and now you want to count or sum the cells which are greater than a certain number but also less than another certain number in the range. Here, in Excel, COUNTIF and SUMIF formulas can help you.

Count the cells greater than a certain number but less than another certain number in a range. In this case, I count the cells greater than number 30 but less than number 50.

Please select a blank cell, for instance, the Cell C6, type this formula =COUNTIF(A1:C5,">30") - COUNTIF(A1:C5,">50") (the range A1: C5 indicates the range you want to count the cells which meet to the criteria, the number 30 and 50 stand the criteria, you can change them as you need), and press Enter button on the keyboard. See screenshot:
