Excel/Repeating IF Statement

Question
Hello,

I'm am trying create a list using a repeating IF statement. I have two sheets: one with raw data, and one with inputs/outputs.

Sheet 1:

6/6/2014
6/14/2014

(Cells A1, A2)

Sheet 2:
Name 1    7/29/2014
Name 2    7/2/2014
Name 3    6/10/2014
Name 4    6/18/2014
Name 5    6/13/2014
Name 7    6/3/2014
Name 8    6/9/2014
Name 9    8/1/2014
Name 10   6/11/2014

(Cells A1:B10)

Below the dates on sheet 1 I have an IF(AND statement to pull cells that fall between the two dates listed. I'm only able to do this for a single cell on sheet two. This formula would be on sheet 1: IF(AND(A1<Sheet 2!B1,A2>Sheet 2!B1),Sheet 2!A1,unsure from here).

I'd like the formula to repeat itself down the whole array on Sheet 2, returning only the names that fall within the specified date range. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Micah

Answer
You can use just a blank spaceholder or some message for the "unsure from here" part, this will  populate only those cells which have the dates in your range, others will show a message.
You'll ofcourse need to have to copy the formula to the whole column for each cell to populate.

Another, easier solution could be to simply use the data filters and select dates with in a range.

Hope this helps.
