Hello!

Please refer to the attached file: Tab "A" has the needed data and Tab "B" should referenece data from Tab "A"
Cell C3 needs to map C2 &A3 through tab A and let me know if they are connected or not.
Tab A has 55 individual stores and each of these stores has 10 assigned stores to them. The yellow section in tab B is what needs to be populated through a formula.

thanks!

Try this formula in C3 to give you those results

=IFERROR(ADDRESS(MATCH(1,INDEX((A!$B$1:$B$1000=$A3)*(A!$A$1:$A$1000=C$2),0),0),2),"not connected")

copy across and down as far as required

Great! It works but could you modify this formula please? ...it should say "connected" instead of referencing the actual cell in Tab A:

156            not connected
168            $B$9

Use this formula instead

=IF(ISERROR(ADDRESS(MATCH(1,INDEX((A!$B$1:$B$1000=$A3)*(A!$A$1:$A$1000=C$2),0),0),2)),"Not Connected","Connected")

OK, I thought you wanted the location as shown, if not then for just "connected" or "not connected" try this version

=IF(COUNTIFS(A!$B$1:$B$1000,$A3,A!$A$1:$A$1000,C$2),"connected","not connected")
