    Exclamation compare two worksheets and identity data that is not present in both

    My goal is to compare two worksheets and identity data that is not present in both and label each record as such. Essentially, I need to compare transaction numbers from a column of data in worksheet A against a column of data in worksheet B and identify which records are not present in worksheet B.

    Can anyone suggest a solution?

    Something like this in one of the workbooks, in an empty column:

    =ISNUMBER(MATCH(A1, '[Book2.xlsx]Summary'!$A:$A, 0))

    The result will be TRUE/FALSE. Copy that down once you get a correct answer for the first row. You may have to tweak a little on the sheetname and workbook name, but this is the syntax.
