I have a name, address, city, state and zip spreadsheet with 10,000 entries.
I have another spreadsheet with 300 names only.
I would like to take the names on the smaller spreadsheet  and  indicate them on the larger spreadsheet with an "X" in a separate column. (See graphic)
How can I do this?

I will assume the smaller spreadsheet is called "Spreadsheet 2", and the names are in column A of that column.

In cell B2, use

=if(countif('Spreadsheet 2'!A:A,A2)>0,"X","")
