    Help! 1 - Lookup specific text from column E and insert true/false - IF

    On the attached sheet on the overview sheet in the 'missing mark' column I need it to lookup 'Abyna' in sheet 'reading' column E and insert false, if the child is not on the column.

    Column E on 'Reading' sheet has Abyna, but not Alexia.

    Any help with this would be very much appreciated :-)

    However I question your assertion that Alexia doesn't exist. She does in E72.

    Is this only based on column E? Are there any other columns that need to be used?

    Alexia is in E72, by the way.

    THis, copied down, will tell you how many times a name appears - there are no missing names...
    =COUNTIF(Table1[[Baseline]:[End of Year 6 Target]],Overview!D2)

    There are two other columns 'writing' and 'maths'. I just tried to simplify the spreadsheet to make it easier to explain.
