A(:,2) >= 14 will give a matrix of 0s and 1s, if statement will execute only if A(:,2) >= 14 returns a matrix which has all 1s and according to your xlsx sheet that is not the case so if statement will never be true. Although you can try this code,
A = xlsread('testfile.xlsx') ;
ind = A(:,1) >= 14 & A(:,1) <= 16 ;
B = A(ind , 4) ;
C = A(ind , 5) ;
D = A(ind , 9) ;
