Compare Columns Excel

Hello,
      I have 2 columns, (A&B)of data that I would like to compare and find matches. If there are matches I would like the matched cells to populate column C. Is there a simple way to do this? I have attached a file with some of the data as an example.

Thank you

Away to do it might be using conditional formatting ->  highlight cell rules -> dulpicates, and then filter the color out.

put this in column C =IFERROR(INDEX(A:A,MATCH(B2,A:A,0)),"No Match")

alternatively you can do this also


=IF(ISNA(MATCH(A1,B:B,0)),A1,"No Match")   put in column C  
=IF(ISNA(MATCH(B1,A:A,0)),B1,"No match")    put in column D
