Hello, I need some help with an Excel formula. I have a column of user names and a column of usernames intermixed with non-user names.

I would like to have usernames in column a, the mixed list in column b and then a formula in column c that would display yes/no or true/false if the name exists in both columns. I have attempted a couple of IF formulas and VLOOKUP with out getting the results I was looking for. Does anyone have any ideas for me??

Thanks for any and all assistance.
