Hello,

I have two excel sheets A and B having the same columns. there names, dates, figures. not necessarily having the same number of rows, having same names in some cases, in other cases not same names.
i would like to have a formula to compare B to A to track which names in B appear in A and which names in A not appearing in B.

kind regards

Hi NKERAGUTABARA,

On sheet A use:
=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,B!$A$2:$A$5,1,0)),"Not found","Found")
On sheet B use:
=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,A!$A$2:$A$5,1,0)),"Not found","Found")

Adjust the bold parts to match the number of rows used.

You can then apply a auto filter to group the results together.

Best regards,
Trowa
