I need help with a formula in Excel 2013

Hi Experts,
I have entered the following formula in Column C of my Excel spreadsheet:

In Column D, if want to put the following value if the value returned from Column C falls under a specific range (see below):

If value in Column C is less than 1 then Column D should equal 400
If value in Column C is 1 but less than 2 then Column D should equal 300
If value in Column C is 2 but less than 4 then Column D should equal 250
If value in Column C is 4 but less than 6 then Column D should equal 150  

What formula do I need to put in Column D to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance,

Use this formula...

Alternatively, setup a lookup table, 2 columns by 5 rows:

0   400
1   300
2   250
4   150
6    ???

If the results in C could go below 0 then set the first entry to a ridiculous amount below 0 eg -99999

If the results will go over 6, amend the result against 6 for what you need the result to be.

Then a formula in D:

=VLOOKUP(C1,Table,2)       where Table refers to the cells of the list above.

Saurabh Singh Teotia,
What would happen if I get a value like 1.35, or 3.84, will the formula still work?

Saurabh Singh TeotiaCommented:
Yes, even if you get 1.35 it will give you answer as-->300 and for 3.84 it will give you answer as 250.. This will work till whole number 4 all your values will give you the answer what you are looking for...
