Excel Comparison of 2 sheets

I have two sheets

sheet1 has col1, col2, col3, col4

and

Sheet2 has col1, col2, col3, col4

The data in both the sheets is sorted as col2, col1

I want to run a comparison on two sheets, I want find the records missing in sheet2 that are present in sheet 1

We need to comapre col2 and the col1

Example of data in sheet 1

col1, col2, col3, col4
a.b    d         1      1
d.c    d          2      1
E.F    D
w.s   e    
e.d    e           1     1


Example of sheet2
col1, col2, col3, col4
a.b    d         1      1
w.s   e    


FINAL SHEET1 SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS
col1, col2, col3, col4  COL5
a.b    d         1      1
d.c    d          2      1     MISSING
E.F    d                         MISSING
w.s   e    
e.d    e           1     1    MISSING




if sheet1.col2row1=sheet2.col2ROW1
THEN CHECK TO SEE IF SHEET1.COL1.ROW1 (loop through sheet2.col1.rows till the col2 is same...)

No idea how to do it in excel.

SMadhavi,
Try this macro out.  I think it will do what you want.  If not let me know and we can change it.  Make a copy of your workbook and try it on the copy just to make sure nothing gets overwritten.

I pasted your sample data into Sheet1 and Sheet2 starting in cell A1 in both sheets.

Sub CompareSheets()
Dim r As Range, c As Range, sAdd As String
For Each r In Range("B1", Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp))
    With Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("B:B")
        Set c = .Find(r, LookIn:=xlValues)
            If Not c Is Nothing Then
                sAdd = c.Address
                Do
                    If c.Offset(, -1) <> r.Offset(, -1) Then r.Offset(, 3) = "Missing"
                    Set c = .FindNext(c)
                Loop While Not c Is Nothing And c.Address <> sAdd
           End If
    End With
Next r
End Sub

If VBA is not a must then this is a better way. Enter this formula in E1 or any other column and then copy it down.

hmmm....It worked for your test data.  Can you upload a sample file with more data so I can test it.

EDIT:
Never mind.  I see the problem.  I will have a new one shortly.
