Hi all,

Is there anyway that I can compare three lists in the one formula.
I know that I can use the @replace to compare two lists, but not sure if I can compare three lists.

For example, I want to find out those items which are in the first list and the second list but not in the third list

list1: item1, item2, item3
list2: item1, item4, item 5
list3: item6, item7, item8

Myresultlist should contain: item1
Is this possible?

Any ideas, help is much appreciated

And reading again ... I'm clearly talking rubbish.  A two stage check of list1 with 2 then the result with 3 should work, haven't got Notes at the moment to try it and off now anyway, no doubt someone else will be along shortly :-)

two stage check??
Are you saying the @replace twice? with list1, list2 and then the resulted field with list3?

I'll attempt anyway, but I'd need further clarification to this.

Thanks

Trying won't offend me, since I never tested it. What's more important, assuming it works: try to unravel it, why does it work?
