    True/False to display with a duplicate entry

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm using excel 2013 and wanted to have a column highlight 'True' or 'False if I receive a duplicate entry. Basically I have data from the previous week (part no's) listed in a column, for arguments sake lets say from B2 to B30. The following week I scan part no's in again in another column, again lets say D2 to D30. In a weekly check I am checking for duplicates, any that come up as 'False' will be ones that have turned up and not scanned on the previous weeks audit. In terms of the true/false I would be looking for this display in the A column (A2 to A30). Any ideas?

    Hope this makes sense!

    Thanks for any help.

    Re: True/False to display with a duplicate entry

    in A2 something like this... you can adapt it if the columns are wrong, the technique is the same:

    =ISNUMBER(MATCH(B2, D:D, 0))

    or

    =ISNUMBER(MATCH(D2, B:B, 0))
