I need a formula to do the following.  The formula would show in column J like in the attached.  Thanks in advance.

If it goes from .000000274 to above .000000274 then it should say Check
If it goes from .000000274 to below .000000274 then it should say Check
If it is above .000000274 and the next day is also above .000000274 then it would say Valid
If it stays at .000000274 for both current and prior day mil rates then it would say Valid

You have 2 conditions for Valid.
Both equal to .000000274, or both above.
If not then Check, so formula is

=IF(OR(AND(G2=0.000000274,H2=0.000000274),AND(G2>0.000000274,H2>0.000000274)),"Valid","Check")

Another way:

=IF(AND(G2=0.000000274,(OR(H2>0.000000274,H2<0.000000274))),"check",IF(OR(AND(G2>0.000000274,H2>0.000000275),(AND(G2=0.000000274,H2=0.000000274))),"valid",""))

This one allows for every condition that you mentioned however after reviewing the difference between the two solutions offered the one by hgholt accounts for the missing one where "Prior" is above 0.000000274 and "Current" is below "Prior.

If the last scenario occurs then my formula would simply provide a blank (empty) response where hgholt's provides "check"

The last one is what I am going to use and I believe it is going to work fine.  Let me test and I will award points.  Thanks for fast response.

Ok using the last formula
the “check” in column G is still not working properly and is giving a “check” when comparing 0.000000274 to 0.000000274 - it should be "Valid"

Interesting.  It seems to work when I do it.

I know - do you think we need to take out the G2=0.000000274 - would that confuse it.

=IF(AND(G2=0.000000274,(OR(H2>0.000000274,H2<0.000000274))),"check",IF(OR(AND(G2>0.00

=if(and(g2=0.000000274,(or(h2>0.000000274,h2<0.000000274))),"check"

checks to see if g2 is 0.000000274
AND
h2 is higher or lower than (not equal to) 0.000000274

If the above two checks are true then "check"

If the above two checks are false then:

if(or(and(g2>0.000000274,h2>0.000000275),(and(g2=0.000000274,h2=0.000000274))),"valid",""))

If either g2 AND h2 equal 0.000000274 OR g2 is greater than 0.000000274 and h2 is greater than 0.000000275 then this should return "valid" (true) otherwise it should return nothing (false)

The very last check "and(g2=0.000000274,h2=0.000000274" should be the one that gives you "valid" if both are equal to 0.000000274,
