The formula returns “Yes” or “No” to indicate whether or not each cell in column A falls between the specific start and end dates.

For example:

  • 1/4/2022 does not fall between the start and end dates so the formula returns No.
  • 2/15/2022 does fall between the start and end dates so the formula returns Yes.

And so on.

Note: You can return values other than “Yes” or “No” by replacing these values in the formula with different text.
