Vlookup three columns

Hi,

I have one excel tab with a load of data in column F

I want to check if there is corresponding values in three other tabs.

The corresponding values are always in Column A

How can i check this as a Vlookup will only return from one tab

Thanks

Do you want to check if there is data in one of the three, or all three? You'll basically need three separate vlookups, either nested or concatenated depending on the answer to my question.

They could be a corresponding value in tab one, two, or in all three or no match at all

I need to return text "Match" if there is a corresponding value in tab one, two, or all three    
&

Text "Non Match" if there is no corresponding value in any of the tabs

Hope that makes sense!
In that case:

=if(count(match(a1,sheet1!a:a,0),match(a1,sheet2!a:a,0),match(a1,sheet3!a:a,0))>0,"match","no match")
for example
Hey Rory, i have zipped the file which i am working on and have tried to implement your formula as you will see in Tab ASPA

Can you see why that cant see what is a match as a match?

e.g B2 should be a match

Thanks
