Excel/Not getting my formula right - PLEASE HELP


Formula is =IF(AND((I46:I50)>0,(I46:I50)<=AK$22,AK7<AK$21),AK$5,AK$33)

Basically I am getting the answer if there is no range selected and if the selection for IF formula is only a cell.

For eg: If i do the following formula below, i will get it right


The difference is I am unable to select a range i.e.(I46:I50). Gives me a error "Value"


Your formula needs to be entered as an array formula and it should work fine.

To enter the formula as an array formula---
First create the formula in the cell but when you enter it do it by holding down the control and the shift key and then hit enter.
Excel will add a { } at the beginning and end of the formula which makes it an array formula.

Hope this works for you.
