    Unhappy Find a value in whole spreadsheet and return a true or false answer

    Hi,

    I have 2 spreadsheets.

    Spreadsheet 1 = Column A has a list of applications

    Spreadsheet 2 = many different columns have applications

    What im trying to do is find if spreadsheet 1 column A applications are in spreadsheet 2 in any of the columns. If yes, in spreadsheet 1 Column B I would like it to return a TRUE answer. If it cant be found, then it returns a FALSE answer.

    I hope that makes sense.

    Thank you in advance.

    =COUNTIF(othersheet!$A:$Z,A1)>0 change range to suit what columns you actually use
