I have a worksheet with two spreadsheets. The spreadsheet names are Tab A and Tab B.
Tab A has in column A a list of Countries and in column B the related country currency codes.
Tab B also has a list of Countries and related country currency codes. On tab b column C, I want a formula that tells me if the country and country currency code in Tab A  matches  what is in tab B

Example
Tab B
    Country           Country Currency Dode      Match?
United States             USD                                            Yes

Try this formula in C2 of worksheet B

=IF(COUNTIFS(A!A:A,A2,A!B:B,B2)>0,"Yes","No")

This will work in Excel 2007 or later versions

I don't think that will work.

Sample Tab A

CountryA      SGD
CountryB      USD
CountryC      USD
CountryD      USD

Tab B

CountryA      USD   This one does't match tab A
CountryB      USD   Match
CountryC      USD   Match
CountryD      USD   Match
