# Can anyone HELP!!! How to use the < & > in a formula PLS

edited 03/13/23

Hi All,

I am currently making a RAID log for my project.

Where I am struggling is that after calculating the Risk score, I want to use a CountIf formula to provide me with a count that if the risk score is more than or equal to 5, if the risk score is =< 3. I have managed to achieve this.

The issue I am finding is how would I be able to count the number of medium risks that fall between the range of 3 - 5. I need a formula to basically be:

= {CCST RAID Log Range 4}, <5 but >3

Is there a way to do this? This method unfortunately returns an error.

Look forward to your thoughts and thank you in advance for any help or insight you can give.

Try this:

=COUNTIFS({CCST RAID Log Range 4}, >=3, {CCST RAID Log Range 4}, <5)

Keep in mind that this will not include 5 since we're only looking at less than 5. If you want 3, 4, and 5 to be counted, you can add in an = sign before the 5:

=COUNTIFS({CCST RAID Log Range 4}, >=3, {CCST RAID Log Range 4}, <=5)

Let me know if this makes sense and works for you!

Cheers,

Genevieve
