Hello,

as I understand you want to check if value in row with two columns exist in another sheet . You can use VLOOKUP bu t you need to create new column which you will use to compare.

Steps:

1. In sheet where you want the results cell C1 je add this formula : =+CONCATENATE(A2;B2) - strech this formula to all rows
2. n sheet where you have the values to check in the cell C1 je add this formula : =+CONCATENATE(A2;B2)  - strech this formula to all rows
3. In sheet where you want  in thecell D1 you add this formula: =+VLOOKUP(C2;Sheet2!C:C;1;FALSE)

I attached the example excel file..
