    Question Need to Mark an Item if it appears on another page as well

    I suspect this is an easy function but I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

    I have a group of names from A4 to A379 on one Tab (Sheet1).

    I have another group of names from A4 to A297 on another Tab (Sheet2).

    There is significant overlap of names of the two lists.

    In Column C of Sheet1 I want to place an 'X' on the same row if that Name also appears on Sheet 2. Otherwise it will remain blank.

    An alternative would be some Conditional Formatting but I prefer for an 'X' to be placed next to the name on Sheet1.

    Much thanks,
    Curt

    Try this...

    Enter this formula in cell C4 on Sheet1:

    =IF(COUNTIF(Sheet2!A$4:A$279,A4),"X","")

    Copy down to C379.

    Try:

    Sheet1, C4: =REPT("X",COUNTIF(Sheet2!$A$4:$A$297,$A4)>0)

    and copy down.

    EDIT: formula change and in line with Tony (getting late here in Stockholm...). Only returns a string if there Countif >= 0, else leaves an empty string.
