    Isnumber

    Hi,

    Im using a formula to identify new part numbers.

    The formula is: =IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(A217,Existing!A:A,0)),"","NEW")

    However you can clearly see from the attached that if has flagged a duplicate part number as new. Why would it do that? Check out A1368 in existing and A217 in new

    Please help.

    Thanks

    A217 has a trailing space.

    Is there a formula that I can delete these trailing spaces?

    Thanks

    Re: Isnumber

    you can use Trim() function to control these trailing spaces

    =IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(TRIM(A217),Existing!A:A,0)),"","NEW")
