Hi all,
If a I have a column of four cells where each cell contains a range of values, as shown below.
If I have a list that has five elements: . I want to find the cell that corresponds to the range of values between each two consecutive elements in this list. For exmaple, what is the cell that is smaller than the first element and larger than the second? And then do the same for the second pair of elements.
Thanks.

In future, please attach data as text (use "code" button or Ctrl-E and it'll show up as code and copyable/executable. Nothing can do with images except look at them and then retype the data in manually.
