Can any Excel guru help me find where two columns "B" and "C" don't match?  In column "B" I have a datetime value in the format: 2010-01-21T14:00:00.000Z

In column "C" I have a date value in the format: 1/21/2010

I want to find all records where the date value is different.  I'm not concerned about the time.

See the attache .csv file.

Thanks for any help.

I did a replace on your column B, since you said you don't care about the time.  Replaced "T*" without the quotes with "" without the quotes (that's just a blank).  To do a replace, highlight column B then press Ctrl + H.

Then I just did a simple formula and added some conditional formatting to make the non matches stand out.  See attached example.

=IF(B2=C2,"Match","Does Not Match")
