Matching data between different sheets


Please see the attached file. I would like to match column A of sheet1 and column A of sheet2,

afterwards write the values of column B in sheet1 onto corresponding cells of column C in sheet2.

it would be very nice if we can highlight each cell in column B or C in sheet2 if the two values of column B and C do not match.

It can be red if one is lower and green if it is higher.

Hope i am able to convey what i need.

thanks in advance.

Thank you for your reply.

Is there a way to highlight the cells in column C only.  If the value in cell C is greater than cell B then one color if is smaller another color.

You can remove one conditional format rule (for cells in B column)

Have you tested file from my last comment?
keeen61Author Commented:
yes, i use the same formula
Cells are highlighted in different colors? Was it correct?
keeen61Author Commented:
none of the cells are highlighted. but the values are correct
It's strange:
excelExcel 2007. May be different color scheme? Can you try to change color in conditional formatting?

i see the same colors on the file i download from your answer.

when i try the formula on a new file cells are not highlighted.

Cell are highlighted in conditional formatting, not in formula. You can copy format from my example to your sheet with the Format Painter tool (little yellow paintbrush) and edit it (range and formula) in conditional formatting rules.
Here is an example of conditional formatting for similar case:
