    Need help automating crosschecking

    Hi, my problem is this, I'm trying to find a way to cross-check two separate spreadsheets specifically there names , is there a way to do this? i have over 30,000 lines to search and doing so manually will take a lifetime.

    any information or help will be gratefully appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    Can you explain a little more pls?

    Be sure that best way to describe your problem is to upload a sample workbook.

    Be sure that all sensitive data removed, showing what data you are working with, a few examples of what your expected outcome is, and how you arrived at that.

    To attach a small sample workbook.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and use the paperclip icon to open the upload window.

    COUNTIF is 1 way.

    Perhaps MATCH function is the other.
