Hello,

I have two columns with identical cells and I need to find those that are not the same. For example: Column1 Cell1 = "a", Column2 Cell1 = "h". Column1 Cell2 = "h', Column2 Cell2="h", etc. I need to find which two cells are not the same. Thanks for any advice. Baruch.

in column 3 that is in C1 type or copy this formula

=IF(A1=B1,"same","not same")

copy C1 down.

see what you get.
in row "A" suppose some 1-100 numbers are there in cell, like in "B" some of the numbers only will appear though they are from in between 1 to 100, some numbers will not be there . My question is that the numbers which are not identical in row "A" and "B" should appear in row "c". Pl help
