Count number of cells between two values / dates in Excel

Have you ever tried to get or count the number of cells between two given numbers or dates in Excel as below screenshot shown? This article will talk about some useful formulas for dealing with it.


Count the number of cells between two values

In Excel, the COUNTIFS function can help you to get the number of cells between two numbers. The generic syntax is:

=COUNTIFS(range,">="&small value cell,range,"<="&large value cell)
  • range: The column range that contains the values you want to count;
  • small value cell: The cell that contains the small value you want to use;
  • large value cell: The cell that contains the large value you want to use;
  • &: This separator is used to concatenate the cell value with the conditions.

1. Please enter or copy the below formula into a blank cell:

=COUNTIFS($B$4:$B$15,">="&D2,$B$4:$B$15,"<="&E2)

2. Then, drag this formula to other cells that you want to apply this formula, and now, you will get the number of cells between the given numbers, see screenshot:

Tips: You can also put the numbers into the formula directly instead of the cell references, for example, to get the number of cells between 30 and 80, please apply the below formula:

=COUNTIFS($B$2:$B$13,">=30",$B$2:$B$13,"<=80")

Count the number of cells between two dates

This COUNTIFS function also can help to count the number of dates that fall between two specific dates. The generic syntax is:

=COUNTIFS(range ,">=" &start_date cell, range, "<=" &end_date cell)
  • range: The column range that contains the date list;
  • start_date cell: The cell that contains the start date you want to use;
  • end_date cell: The cell that contains the end date you want to use;
  • &: This separator is used to concatenate the date cell with the conditions.

1. Enter or copy the following formula into a blank cell where you want to put the result:

=COUNTIFS($B$2:$B$13,">=" &D2, $B$2:$B$13, "<=" &E2)

2. Then, drag this formula down to other cells that you want to use this formula, and the number of cells between two specific dates have been calculated at once, see screenshot:

Tips: Besides, you can type the start and end dates into the formula directly instead of using cell references. For example, to get the number of cells between 1/1/1985 and 1/1/2000, please apply the below formula:

=COUNTIFS($B$2:$B$13,">=1/1/1985",$B$2:$B$13,"<=1/1/2000")

Normally, in Excel, the simple COUNTIF and COUNTIFS functions will not work in this scenario.
