Can you explain your data a bit?  Do you have multiple columns and want to find the difference in dates and then count?  Or is it something else?

60-90 days, for example
=countifs(A:A,">=60",A:A,"<90")

unles you're dealing with dates, in which case you could have
=countifs(A:A,"<=" & today()-60 ,A:A,">" & today()-90)
or, depending on whether it's 60 days in the future or in the past:
=countifs(A:A,">=" & today()+60 ,A:A,"<" & today()+90)

What I have an expiration date with a reenlistment process that should begin no later than (NLT) 6 months or 180 days prior.  The spreadsheet contains that data.  I want to have available a vector points 30,60, 90 days.

So, yes I have multiple columns and want to find the difference in dates and then count? The Expiration date

SO, I basically need to calculate the following:

The number of days until Expiration in a colum (K14), countif based upon criteria in K14
1. 30 Days or less
2. Between 31 to 59 days
3.Between 60 and 90 days
4. Between 91 and 179
5. 180 days or more

If you have a column of Dates, say column A2:A100 and your expiration date is in K14, then try:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(K14-\$A\$2:\$A\$100>0),--(K14-\$A\$2:\$A\$100<=30))

=SUMPRODUCT(--(K14-\$A\$2:\$A\$100>30),--(K14-\$A\$2:\$A\$100<=59))

=SUMPRODUCT(--(K14-\$A\$2:\$A\$100>60),--(K14-\$A\$2:\$A\$100<=90))

=SUMPRODUCT(--(K14-\$A\$2:\$A\$100>91),--(K14-\$A\$2:\$A\$100<=179))

=SUMPRODUCT(--(K14-\$A\$2:\$A\$100>180))

adjust ranges to suit, but don't use large (whole) columsn.

I am not sure why you used column C.

If you use column F or any other column of dates, then you get numeric result:

e.g. =SUMPRODUCT(--(M5-\$F\$14:\$F\$100>0),--(M5-\$F\$14:\$F\$100<=30))  gives 1.

What I figured out is that I'm asking the wrong thing or I think I figured a better way that works for this process.

So, what I actually need is to do is if the the following:
1.  If current date is outside the 0-365 day range of ETS, say:6 Mo of ETS (Expiration Date), but NLT 90 Days of ETS
2. If the current dates is within the 0-365 day range of the ETS(Expiration Date), then countdown and say or show days: ## Days
3.  If the expiration dates has passed, then say:  Please validate ETS status of member

=IF(B14>(B14-180),"6 Mo of ETS, but NLT 90 Days of ETS",IF(TODAY()<= B14-180,TODAY()-B14&" Days Remaining to ETS",""))

Maybe something more like, in K14:

=IF(B14-\$M\$5<=180,IF(OR(B14-\$M\$5>=0,B14-\$M\$5>=-90),"6 Mo of ETS, but NLT 90 Days of ETS",""),IF(\$M\$5<= B14-180,B14-\$M\$5&" Days Remaining to ETS",""))

copied down.

Yes, I think we're on the right track here.  I'm closer to what I', looking for now.  But, maybe I'm still a little confused.  I've also attached spreadsheet with

I miss spoke or type, if the ETS (Expiration date) is out that 0-365 day range, then , say: 6 Mo of ETS (Expiration Date), but NLT 90 Days of ETS

2.But, If the expiration date is within the 0-365 day range of the ETS(Expiration Date), then countdown and say or show days: ##

3.  If the expiration dates has passed, then say:  Please validate ETS status of member

If you are saying "6 mo of ETS....", then why is the check range 365 days (which would be 12 mo of ETS"?

Other than that, the formula for 6 months (~180 days) is:

=IF(B14-\$M\$5<=180,IF(OR(B14-\$M\$5>=0,B14-\$M\$5>=-90),"6 Mo of ETS, but NLT 90 Days of ETS","Please validate ETS status of member"),IF(\$M\$5<= B14-180,B14-\$M\$5&" Days Remaining to ETS",""))

If you really mean 365 days, then:

=IF(B14-\$M\$5<=365,IF(OR(B14-\$M\$5>=0,B14-\$M\$5>=-90),"12 Mo of ETS, but NLT 90 Days of ETS","Please validate ETS status of member"),IF(\$M\$5<= B14-365,B14-\$M\$5&" Days Remaining to ETS",""))
