Multiple criteria Custom Data Validation

I have a spreadsheet where the range of cells (E6:E12) must be the numbers 1 through 7 with each number only being used once.  I have added custom validation to the range to not allow duplicates:

=COUNTIF($E$6:$E$12, E6)=1

And that is working fine.  Is there a way I can add a second criteria that the number must be with the range of 1 to 7.  Or what would the VBA code be to do this check?

Try

=AND(E6>=1,E6<=7,COUNTIF($E$6:$E$12, E6)=1)

if you want to ensure only whole numbers are used, then:

=AND(MOD(E6,1)=0,E6>=1,E6<=7,COUNTIF($E$6:$E$12, E6)=1)
