    Compare values in two columns to highlight discrepancies

    On sheet1, I have a list of values in column A as well as a list of values in column B.

    On sheet2, I need
    1) column A to list values in Sheet1,ColumnA that are not present in Sheet1,ColumnB
    2) column B to list values in Sheet1,ColumnB that are not present in Sheet1,ColumnA

    How can I do this?

    Thanks!

    hi matchooo. try this array formula in sheet2:

    ...confirmed by pressing CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER to activate the array. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer. Press F2 on that cell and try again.

    i then custom formatted the cells so that 0 wouldn't show up. it's also possible not to do the custom formatting, but with a longer formula:

    Is it Numbers? Or Text Data?
