I need an excel formula to look at the date values of cells and return, "Happy" or "Very Happy" or Blank

If The Date in Column B is AFTER the Date in Column A, but BEFORE the date in Column C, return "Happy"

If the Date in Column B is AFTER the Date in Column C, return "Very Happy"

If neither apply, return blank.

Wrapping it to ignore errors would be greatly appreciated.

Why not use "conditional formating" ?

=IF(AND(B2>A2,C2>B2),"Happy",IF(B2>C2,"Very Happy",""))

Open in new window


The first condition uses the AND formula to verify two (or more) conditions are met.  Both conditions must return true to qualify.  If the both return true, then the value is "Happy."  If they fail, the nested IF statement checks that B2 is greater than C2.  If it is, it gets "Very Happy."  If that fails, it remains blank.
