Hi,

you could these 2 formulas as Array formula Ctrl-Shift Enter

=IF(IFERROR(MATCH(A2&B2&C2&D2&E2&F2&G2&H2&I2&J2&K2&L2&M2,List2!$A$2:$A$25&List2!$B$2:$B$25&List2!$C$2:$C$25&List2!$D$2:$D$25&List2!$E$2:$E$25&List2!$F$2:$F$25&List2!$G$2:$G$25&List2!$H$2:$H$25&List2!$I$2:$I$25&List2!$J$2:$J$25&List2!$K$2:$K$25&List2!$L$2:$L$25&List2!$M$2:$M$25,0),0),"Found in List 2","")

=IF(IFERROR(MATCH(A2&B2&C2&D2&E2&F2&G2&H2&I2&J2&K2&L2&M2,List1!$A$2:$A$25&List1!$B$2:$B$25&List1!$C$2:$C$25&List1!$D$2:$D$25&List1!$E$2:$E$25&List1!$F$2:$F$25&List1!$G$2:$G$25&List1!$H$2:$H$25&List1!$I$2:$I$25&List1!$J$2:$J$25&List1!$K$2:$K$25&List1!$L$2:$L$25&List1!$M$2:$M$25,0),0),"Found in List 1","")
