I need help with a small addition, is it possible to add the names which are not there in Sheet1 to another sheet or in the same result sheet? Let me know if I need to open a new question for this.. Thanks in advance..
You can use this will move the values which are not their to the missing worksheet...

Sub movdata()
    Dim rng As Range, cell As Range, r As Range
    Dim lr As Long, lr1 As Long, ws As Worksheet, ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet
    Dim k As Long, z As Long, ws3 As Worksheet
    Set ws = Sheets("Sheet1")
    Set ws1 = Sheets("Sheet2")
    Set ws2 = Sheets("Result")
    Set ws3 = Sheets("Missing")

    lr = ws1.Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row

    If lr = 1 Then
        MsgBox " Please enter value to search"
        Exit Sub
    End If

    Set r = ws1.Range("A1:A" & lr)

    lr1 = ws.Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
    Set rng = ws.Range("A2:A" & lr1)

    For Each cell In rng
        If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(r, cell.Value) = 1 Then

            If ws2.Cells(1, 1).Value = "" Then
                cell.EntireRow.Copy ws2.Range("a1")
                cell.EntireRow.Copy ws2.Range("A" & ws2.Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row + 1)
            End If

                 If ws3.Cells(1, 1).Value = "" Then
                cell.EntireRow.Copy ws3.Range("a1")
                cell.EntireRow.Copy ws3.Range("A" & ws3.Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row + 1)
            End If
        End If

    Next cell

End Sub

Ah Sorry.. What I mean is. If I am searching for following, names and if 'HHH' is not in Sheet1 then 'HHH' should be copied to Missing Sheet.. Right now it's copying the missing items from Sheet1..

You could have still done it with VLOOKUP


Value - The cell reference for the name you are looking for
Range - The range in which you are looking with the lookup value in the leftmost column, include all columns of the data, for your example A to D
Offset - The number of the column from which you want to return the value, in your range A to D column B is number 2, C = 3, D=4. Even if your range was say E to H, F would still be 2 as it is the second column of the range, G = 3 ie 3rd column.
LookupType - Set to FALSE as you need an exact match. TRUE will give a the closest but not greater than match.

So for your data in column A you have the name and then columns B to D with the VLOOKUP formulae with changes in the offset value as you move right across the columns.
