    Hi all,

    I have two different lists of numbers and I need to reconcile them. What I need to do is compare them and highlight (or something similar) the ones that don't appear in the other one and viceversa.

    For example:

    List A: 1,2,3,4,5
    List B: 2,3,4,5,6

    I should get highlighted 1 in List A and 6 in List B

    Any suggestion?

    If you List A is in A1:A5 and list B is in B1:B5 then try this:

    select A1:A5 and go to Format|Conditional Formatting and select Formula Is from 1st drop down menu... Enter formula: =COUNTIF($B$1:$B$5,A1)=0

    Click Format and select your highlight colour from Pattern tab. Click Ok and Click Ok again to finish.

    Now select B1:B5 and repeat above with formula: =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$5,B1)=0
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
