want to write a formula with "hypothetical" requirement of two separate workbooks(i've provide two tabs in my example) where I can write a formula matching a row with (part;serial; & location).  If a match write "text" of correct, if wrong write "text" of incorrect.

Any advice?

I want to match both tabs with serial, location, part and when it audits that criteria, if a "match" which in this example will not be, I want to say correct, if not a "match" to say incorrect.

Hope this helps.

Ok try:

=IF(COUNTIFS('tag list'!A:A,A2,'tag list'!B:B,B2,'tag list'!C:C,C2),"Correct","Incorrect")
