    All,

    First, thank you all for you time and knowledge in advance.

    Here's my situation. I'm working with file that is sent to me with populated information, in this example Col A
    What I would like to do is enter information in Col B and then do a comparison of both A and B, letting me know if something in Col B is not in Col A and also is something in Col A not in Col B.

    I need to know if what was sent to my in the spread sheet match what I physically inventoried.

    I have provided an example.

    Hopefully I did not over complicate my request.

    Thank you,

    miketx

    etaf,

    The third option is Perfect! I had completely overlooked the idea of conditional formation to show the difference.

    Thank you very much!,
