In[1]:=
Reduce[{3*x + 2*y - z == 14, 3 <= x <= 8, 0 <= y <= 12, 1 <= z <= 9},
{x, y, z}, Integers]

Out[1]=
y == 0 && z == 1 && x == 5 || y == 0 && z == 4 && x == 6 ||
y == 0 && z == 7 && x == 7 || y == 1 && z == 3 && x == 5 ||
y == 1 && z == 6 && x == 6 || y == 1 && z == 9 && x == 7 ||
y == 2 && z == 2 && x == 4 || y == 2 && z == 5 && x == 5 ||
y == 2 && z == 8 && x == 6 || y == 3 && z == 1 && x == 3 ||
y == 3 && z == 4 && x == 4 || y == 3 && z == 7 && x == 5 ||
y == 4 && z == 3 && x == 3 || y == 4 && z == 6 && x == 4 ||
y == 4 && z == 9 && x == 5 || y == 5 && z == 5 && x == 3 ||
y == 5 && z == 8 && x == 4 || y == 6 && z == 7 && x == 3 ||
y == 7 && z == 9 && x == 3
