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!

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

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")
