I want to create a 4x4 matrix of integers such that:-
Say, M=[ A B C D ; E F G H ; I J K L ; M N O P ]
A+B+C+D>=value from user
A+B+C+D<=value from user
A+E+I+M>=value from user
A+E+I+M<=value from user
and likewise for all columns and rows.

What have you tried?
Also, don't forget that this might not be possible for some values provided by the user.

You can try to formulate it as an integer program.
M=optimvar('M',[4,4],'type','integer');
Constraints.columns=sum(M,1)<=colvalues;
Constraints.rows=sum(M,2)<=rowvalues;
prob=optimproblem('Objective', 0,'Constraints',Constraints );
sol=solve(prob)

The solver will tell you if it is possible for the given set of input ranges. If it returns. sol.M=[], then it is not possible.
