You might want to consider using "greater than or equal to" expressions to cover the ones that fall through the gaps. Can easily update the formulas to suit

In G3 put =IF(D3>=4,IF(D3<=20,"V",""),"")
In H3 put =IF(D3>=21,IF(D3<=50,"V",""),"")
In I3 put =IF(D3>=51,"V","")
In J3 put =IF(D3>=1,IF(D3<=4,"V",""),"")

Thanks experts,

Is it possible to make excel recognise a character as a number? For example, the values in the formulas you suggested will be 'V'. I would Excel to recognise 'V' as the value number 1, so that I can total the 'V's.

I hope that makes sense

You can use Countif() to count the "v"s

=COUNTIF(G:G,"v")

Or replace the "v" with a 1, then you can sum the results. So, instead of...

=IF(AND(D3>4,D3<20),"v","")

... use

=IF(AND(D3>4,D3<20),1,0)

or in D1 use =COUNTIF(D3:D142,"V")
