## How to Use ISBETWEEN in Google Sheets

The ISBETWEEN function in Google Sheets is used to check if a value falls within a specified range, including the boundary values. It returns TRUE if the value is within the range and FALSE otherwise.

## ISBETWEEN Syntax

The syntax is:

ISBETWEEN(value_to_compare, lower_value, upper_value, [lower_value_is_inclusive], [upper_value_is_inclusive])

value_to_compare: The value to check.

lower_value: The lower bound of the range.

upper_value: The upper bound of the range.

[lower_value_is_inclusive]: Indicates whether the comparison should include the lower bound. By default, this is set to TRUE.

[upper_value_is_inclusive]: Indicates whether the comparison should include the upper bound. By default, this is set to TRUE.

## Example

Below are some examples on how you can apply ISBETWEEN in Google Sheets:

### Check if a number is between 10 and 20 (inclusive)

=ISBETWEEN(15, 10, 20)

This will return TRUE because 15 is between 10 and 20.

### Check if a number is between 10 and 20 (exclusive)

=ISBETWEEN(10, 10, 20, FALSE)

This will return FALSE because 10 is the lower boundary and is not included in the range.

### Check if a date is within a specific range

Suppose you want to check if the date in cell A1 is between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021 (inclusive):

=ISBETWEEN(A1, DATE(2021, 1, 1), DATE(2021, 12, 31))

This will return TRUE if the date in A1 is within 2021.

### Using text values (Alphabetical comparison)

=ISBETWEEN("E", "A", "G")

This will return TRUE because "E" falls between "A" and "G" alphabetically.
