I think the question explains itself somewhat. The attached workbook will make it completely clear I hope.

Thanks!

What about conditional formatting?

Select B3 and down, and (in xl 2003) use Formula Is =COUNTIF(List2,B3)=0 and select your formatting.

Then select C3 and down, Formula Is =COUNTIF(List1,C3)=0 and select formatting.

Thanks, Stephen. And of course I can use that in a formula to produce a phrase or value in an offset cell, which is actually my ultimate goal.

Thanks,
John
