## How to return a value if a given value exists in a certain range in Excel?

As the left screenshot shown, if a given number 5 is in a certain number range, how to return the value in the adjacent cell. The formula method in this article can help you achieve it.

Return a value if a given value exists in a certain range by using a formula

#### Return a value if a given value exists in a certain range by using a formula

Please apply the following formula to return a value if a given value exists in a certain range in Excel.

1. Select a blank cell, enter formula =VLOOKUP(E2,A2:C8,3, TRUE) into the Formula Bar and then press the Enter key. See screenshot:

You can see the given number 5 is in the number range 4-6, then the corresponding value Addin 012 in the adjacent cell is populated into the selected cell immediately as above screenshot showed.

Note: In the formula, E2 is the cell contains the given number, A2:C8 contains the number range and the value you will return based on the given number, and number 3 means that the value you will return locates in the third column of range A2:C8. Please change them based on your need.

It does. Try it out before rudely complaining, simple as that.

It obviously does. Instead of whining and trying to be a smartass about it, you could have at least tried it out.

The value works on the first cell. How do you do it for the entire column cell?

You will need to use \$ for the lookup cells values
So if you have a column of values you want to look up you would modify the formula as follows:
=VLOOKUP(E2,\$A\$2:\$C\$8,3, TRUE)

E2 would change as you fill down but the table you are looking up from will remain constant

Can you do a lookup searching a range of 3digit zips (i.e. 010-013 or 280-283,286,297) and pull in the city / state from your zip code list. The zip code list is all 3 digit zips in US broken out individually. The zips are listed multiple times because there are several city / state combinations. (i.e. 010 Ludlow MA; 010 Plamer MA etc).

Yo quiero devolver 1, si se encuentra en un rango de numeros determinados, ej. el rango es de 4 a 10, y en la celda tengo 5, devolver 1, pero si tengo 2 o 15, devolver 0.

Hi Daili,
If you just want to check if a number exists in a given range and return a specified value, you can combine IF with AND functions to get it done.
Suppose the number 4 is in cell A9, the number 10 is in cell B9, the number you want to determine if it exists between 4 and 10 is locateed in D9, you can apply the following formula to get the correct result.
=IF(AND(D9>A9,D9<B9),1,0)

Bonjour je cherche à vérifier si une de mes valeurs correspond à une plage de données, le problème est que je n'ai pas qu'une valeur à vérifier mais une longue liste. J'aimerais que si une des 3 valeurs suivantes que je tape dans une case (exemple "panneau";"Strat";"chants") correspondent à une plage de données, elles 's'affichent en rouge par exemple. Sauriez vous me renseigner ? Merci.

This seems to also work with text. I got this to work with exact value rather than a range by using the "Value" column as part of the range in the formula.

My question is, are you forced to use 2 columns or is it possible to only use 1 and the value column?

I created a master sheet to call from but this is how I setup the formla

=VLOOKUP(I2,'Master Sheet'!\$A\$2:\$B\$53,2,TRUE)

Column "I" text (Number column in the example), I was forced to have a range so column "B" is both the Range and Value.

Is this best practice or would I run into unexpected issues down the road if more line items are added to this list?

Hi Andrew,
You may need to upload a screenshot of your data. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Bom dia!

É possível determinar algum parâmetro dentro do Range.

Quero fazer o PROCV trazer de um intervalo, porém ele acaba retornando valores de CEPs que não existem, mas que estão muito próximos...

Exemplo:

Na tabela existe a faixa de CEP 68795000 A 68796999 que é do estado do Pará
Ao utilizar as formula sugeridas, resulta como "verdadeiro" para a faixa de CEP 69301000 A 69390971 que é do estado de Roraima, devido a proximidade da numeração.
