Using Conditional Formatting to Pass/Fail

I want to use conditional formatting to return a pass fail number based on a
numeric value. However the number has to fall between 2 values. i.e A product
will pass if the numeric value it achieves is between 2 and 8 but if the
value is less than 2 or greater than 8 it will fail. I can't seem to get the
if statement to understand the concept of pass being between 2 and 8.

Using Conditional Formatting to Pass/Fail

Conditonal formats return formats and not numbers. The CF should be farily
easy. if Cell value is not Between 2 and 8 then add your pattern. If you want
a value returned then in a differnet cell use a formula something like

=IF(AND(A1=2, A1<=8), 1, 0)

Using Conditional Formatting to Pass/Fail

Assuming you got your values in column B, starting in B2:

The formula for the pass-rule
=AND(B2=2,B2<=8)

The formula for the fail-rule
=OR(B2<2,B28)
