I am trying to use a range of levels from a source variable in a formula and encountering some challenges.

For example in *TestVar* I would have a response scale such as...

- Poor
- Fair
- Good
- Very good
- Excellent

I want to use something like IF (*TestVar == 1-3, "Rejector", "Acceptor")*

"1-3" is treated as an equation which is not what I am looking for. Delimiting does not work either. I did get around this by simply recoding *TestVar *but I am thinking there has to be a way to use a range. I did consider an *Or* statement but I am curious if there is a way to use a range.

As always, thanks for the help!

How about

if **(****1** <= TestVar <= **3**, "Rejector", "Acceptor"**)**

Re: Variable Level Ranges in Formulas

Thank you! That works perfectly and I would have never landed on that formatting for the parameter. Is there some documentation I can review within JMP or online that lays out that sort of logic for different scenarios?

Re: Variable Level Ranges in Formulas

I found it in the scripting guide just the other day. In chapter 5 under operators. Look at table 5.3.

<=, < Less Equal Less ** ***a*<=*b*<* c *Less Equal Less(
