Macro VBA excel to validate 2 sheets

Last Modified: 2014-05-17

I have an excel file with 2 sheets
Sheet1 and Sheet2.

What i would like to do is a macro that would validate the 3 first column of all the rows in Sheet1 compare to the same rows and column on Sheet2.

Sheet1. row 1 Column A: Ted
Sheet1. row 1 Column B: 2
Sheet1. row 1 Column C: Golf

In Sheet2. row 1 Column A: Ted
Sheet2. row 1 Column B: 6
Sheet2. row 1 Column C: Golf

The result i want would show in Sheet3 in the same row number in the 3 columns
Sheet2. row 1 Column A: Pass
Sheet2. row 1 Column B: Fail
Sheet2. row 1 Column C: Pass

So since Row 1 column A on Sheet1 and Sheet2 are equal, that the result is: PASS
Since  Row 1 column B on Sheet1 and Sheet2 are not equal, than the result should be: FAIL ...

I may have 30000 rows of data in both Sheets.

How can i do that?

Thanks again for your help
