    Highlighting duplicates

    Hey everyone,

    Figured I would post here as well. Maybe there is a simpler solution.

    Basically I have two columns of data. Column A contains all data. Column B contains some of the data in column B and that is all.

    What I want to do is scan column B, and search in column A for all matching data. If there any matching data, I want to highlight the matches in column A.

    Any ideas? Uploaded a test sample of what I'm working with.

    Select the range A1:A166
    Conditional Formatting
    Use the "Use a formula to..." option

    Formula:

    =COUNT(FIND(","&B$1:B$381&",",","&A1&","))

    Choose your desired style(s) then OK out.
