# Simple MATCH Formula? (with IF statement)

Posted on 2013-01-28

Trying to create a match or Find formula to do the following:
Sheet 1 called: OriginalList
Column B has names

Sheet 2 (same workbook) called: NewList
Column A has names

Sheet 1 will have 1200 names
Sheet 2 has a subset of these names

I need to putinto Column A -- in Sheet 1 (original list) a YES, if the name is located in Sheet 2 and a No if the name isn't located in sheet 2

Caveat -- there may be dupes in sheet 2 -- it doesn't matter, would like a YES to appear, but in column D, the number of times that name appears in sheet 2.  It would always have a 0 if No is returned in sheet 1, because it didn't find the name in sheet 2.

let's say data is all on one sheet (just for example - you can ref other sheet)

data in A1 - A10 = 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
data in C1 - C4 = 3,5,7,9

to put YES in col B1 - B10

formula -- =if(isna(match(A1,\$C1:\$C4,0)), "", "YES")

Hi, AliciaVee.

The attached assumes Excel 2007 or higher. Please let me know if you may use an earlier version.

Edit: The second file will also work with versions prior to Excel 2007.
