Hi, I'm trying to use the IF function but even when I copy a formula, I can't seem to get the correct answer. I thought it might be because the cell was formatted to text or something else but it wasn't that. Could somebody lend me a hand please?
I need to calculate age ranges from different cells. So if A2, C2 or E2 are between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2012, the age group should be 5-17 years. If A2, C2, or E2 are less than January 1, 2000, the age group should be 17+. If A2, C2, or E2 are greater than December 31, 2012.

Backtothefuture, Good morning.

As you say any of the three cells can contain the IF clause, what happens if A2 <01/01/2000 and C2 is between 01/01/2000 and 12/31/2012 and E2> 12/31/2012?

What will be the response group?

Thank you for your prompt message. The information is for children's age ranges. One row per family and there will be up to 3 children's dates of birth. Sorry, I don't think I had this organized enough, I have changed the idea. Let me see if I can clarify: If A2 is a date of birth, the response should be either below 5 years, 6-17 years old and 17+. Is there a way to calculate this based on TODAYs date instead of having to change it manually?

backtothefuture, Great Christmas morning.

"...Is there a way to calculate this based on TODAYs date instead of having to change it manually?..."
Of course there is a way.

I made a small example for you.
