In Column C I have a huge long list of about 22 names. On Sheet 2 Column C I have another list of 50 names. On the first sheet in column D, I would like the cell to say "Yes" If the name on the first sheet is also in the list of the 2nd sheet. If the name isn't in the 2nd sheet the result should be "no". Any idea?

Put this in column D on Sheet1 and copy down.

=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(C2, Sheet2!C2:C51, 0), "Yes", "No")

Note, I've assumed the first row of data on both sheets is row 2.
