I have 2 long lists (about 10K lines each, let's say)

1 list might look like

a
b
d
e
f
g


and the other looks like:
a
c
d
e
f
h

(some items are in both, some are in 1, not in the other and vice versa).

Is there a way to compare those in excel or elsewhere and have it get rid of the dupes?
so you get a list like:
b
c
g
h

(all items not in both)

or
b
g
(all items in list 1 only)

Thanks!
