Hi i have exported 3 reports from AD 2003 into Excel 2007.
In row A i have the first name and in row b i have the second name and row D and E and G and H the same.  Problem is i need the names to match up, there are names in row a and b that is not in the othere and row d and e there are names not in a and b and g and h.  Is there a command i can do in Excel to match up any names that are in A and B D and E and G and H.

Hoope this makes sense

Thanks

What do you mean by match up?

Can you post what your expected results should look like?  Also a sample file of data would be nice too.

OK, have a look at this.  I concatenated the 3 sets (so A & B is concatenated in column C, E and F into G and H and I into J).

I used this formula in column D to list out the values from the A & B set that were in BOTH of the other two sets:

=IF(AND(COUNTIF($G$3:$G$300,C3)>=1,COUNTIF($J$3:$J$182,C3)>=1),"In Both Lists","")
