    Returning "yes" or "no" if a value is found in an entire table (across multiple columns)

    I would like to return a "yes" or "no" if a specific value is found on a table, across multiple columns.

    For example, I'd like to searching columns D-M across the below table:

    Table for Excel Forum.JPG

    For values matching those in column I in this table:

    Table 2 for Excel Forum.JPG

    If a matching value is found in the first table, I would like to return a "yes" in column J on the second table.

    Any thoughts?

    try
    =IF(COUNTIF($D$2:$M$100,I2),"YES","NO")

    where D2:M100 is the table range to search
