Assign a value or category based on a number range with formulas

The following formulas can help to assign a value or category based on a number range in Excel. Please do as follows.

Formula 1: Using a formula with the combination of the IF function and the AND function

1. Select a blank cell, enter the following formula and press the Enter key. Select the result cell, drag its AutoFill Handle down to the cells where you want to apply the formula.

=IF(AND(B2>=0,B2<=100),"Poor",IF(AND(B2>100,B2<=500),"Fair",IF(AND(B2>500,B2<=1000),"Good",IF(AND(B2>1000),"Excellent",0))))

Notes: If the given number is not in the specified number range, the formula will return the result as 0.

Formula 2: Using VLOOKUP function to get it done

VLOOKUP function can help to handle this problem as well.

1. Firstly, you need to create an auxiliary table as shown in the table below. The table should contain two columns, one for the sales points and the other for the corresponding category you will assign to the number range.

2. Select a blank cell, enter the formula below and press the Enter key to get the result. Select the result cell, drag its AutoFill Handle down to the cells where you want to apply the formula.

=VLOOKUP(B2,\$E\$2:\$F\$5,2)

Note: In the formula, \$E\$2:\$F\$5 is the table range we created in step 1.
