Hi,

I need to check if (each) cell in column A is having a match in column B, Example as below:

Column A is phone numbers list, column B is messages list ( which will contain a text and one phone number "it should be the same phone number as the one on column A") Now i need to make sure that phone number on A1 is the same phone number that occure on B1,etc. I dont know how to check if A1 phone number is the same phone number on B1 ? or not, and apply the check for all cells in the column? it should show me only if it is not the same.

Many thanks in advance.

Franck211, good morning.

Try to use this:

C1 --> =IF(ISERROR(FIND(A2,B2)),"NOT FOUND","OK")
Copy it down.

Please, tell us if it worked for you.

Is it what you want?
I hope it helps.

Yes, thats helped me. the only difference that i used ISNUMBER instead of using ISERROR and it works, Thank you very much for your help.
Hi, is it possible to find the difference between two cells; e.g where A1 has "success is the key to hard work" and B1 has " success key to hard work"... How can I get "is the" in C1? Thanks.
