I have two columns with a list of email addresses, A and B

How can I do a compare to see if each address in column A is in column B, so print out in column C something like "Found" or Not Found", I'm guessing I can use vlookup but get errors on the ones that are not found, so need a IF or something.

Thanks,

error?
do you mean #NA ?

if that is a case, uses something like

=IF(ISNA(VLookup(.....)) , VLookup(.....), "not found")
