Hello,

I have two excel sheets with the same columns. Essentially Name, Email, Phone. One sheet is the 'original" data and the other is the "updated" data which may contain additions or deletions of names, and/or changes in email address, phone, etc.

How do I generate a list of "changes" - essentially differences in sheet 2 compared to sheet 1. For example, A list of changed emails by name? A list of names on sheet 2 that do not appear on sheet 1?

Thanks!

suppose sheet 1 is
name email phone
a
d
g

sheet 2 is
name email phone
A
S
D
F
G
H
J
K

in sheet 2 in D2 copy this formula

=VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!\$A\$2:\$C\$101,1,0)
copy the formula in D2 down. wherever the data is not available in sheet will show #N/A

You can modify this solution to suit your needs
