Today's Microsoft Excel Tip

Check if a Date Falls Between Two Other Dates

If you need to check if a date in one cell falls between dates in two other cells, here's a formula you can use.


Check If Date In Range in Microsoft Excel 2007 2010 2013 2016 365

In this example, the date we want to check (our target date) is in cell C2. The MEDIAN function returns the middle value of all values we supply to it. So we supply it with the three values we want to evaluate: our target date plus the two values we want to compare it against.

In this example, since the date in cell C2 falls between the dates in cells A2 and B2, the result of =MEDIAN(A2,B2,C2) is 16-Oct-2016.

Next, the formula uses the IF function to check if the value in C2 (first reference) is equal to 16-Oct-2016 (i.e. the result of the MEDIAN function). Since it is and the result of the IF function is TRUE, the 'value if true' result is Yes.

Alternatively, you could omit the IF function and use this formula to return a TRUE or FALSE result.
