I have an xlsx with 2 sheets. In column G of sheet 1 are a list of names, in column H I have put a column called "match". On sheet 2 is also a column (column A) full of names. What formula can I put in column H to put a 1 if the name in column G sheet 1 is also evident in the list of names on sheet 2 column A, and a 0 if it isn't evident?

use VLOOKUP formula
if you want to have O and 1 then you can add in sheet 2 column B with 1´s and use VLOOKUP with IFERROR together - as you can see i the attached sample
