Excel Formula question

I recently posted a question about needing an excel formula and the answers I recieved were a solution to the exact question I asked. Then once I went to implement it I realized I mis-worded my question..
My orginal question:
I have a worksheet I am tring to add a column to in G and what I want is as follows.

If C2 is greater than E2 and less than F2 I want G2 to be 1 but if C2 is Less than E2 or Greater than F2 by on 2-5 then G2 will be 2 but if C2 is Less than E2 or greater than F2 by 5 or more the make G2 a value of 3.

is this possible?


and the answers are as follows:
=if(and(c2>E2,c2<f2),1,if(min(e2-c2,c2-f2)>5,3,2)

=IF(AND(C2>E2,C2<F2),1,IF(OR(C2<E2,(C2-F2)>2,(C2-F2)<5),2,IF(OR(C2<E2,(C2-F2)>5),3)))

=IF(AND(C2>E2,C2<F2),1,IF(OR(C2<E2,AND(C2>F2+2,C2<=F2+5)),2,IF(OR(C2<E2,AND(C2>F2+5)),3,"")))


The mis-word came from me saying if C2 is less than E2 or greater than F2 by 2 - 5...

what I meant is that cell C2 is a value and if the value in C2 is less than the value of E2 by 2 - 5 then I want a 2 in G2 or if the value in C2 is less than E2 by more than 5 or the value is greater than F2 by more than 5 then make G2 a value of 3..

I hope this helps. I have already accepted the solution on my other question because my original question the way it was worded was answered correctly.

So for example if the value of C2 is 80 and the value of E2 is 75 and the value of F2 is 85 then I would want the value of G2 to be 1

but if the value of C2 was 73 or 87 then I would want the value of G2 to be 2

and if the value of C2 was 70 or 90 then the value would be 3 in G2

can this be done?

This formula should do it

=IF(AND(C2>E2-5,C2<=E2-2),2,IF(OR(C2<=E2-5,C2>=F2+5),3,1))

Why should 87 return a value of 2, since  C2 is not less than the value of E2 by 2 - 5.

because it is 2 higher than F2..

I have created a formula that works based on your answer, thank you

=IF(AND(C2>=E2,C2<=F2),1,IF(AND(C2>=(E2*0.95),C2<=(F2*1.05)),2,3))

useing a percentage of the original number to determine the 1 2 or 3 since some values will be like 87 andsome will be 8000 and a hard factor of 2 - 5 or greater than 5 really isnt that big of a deal with a number like 8000 so a percentage of the value is the way to go.
