Comparing listing in xls and access

Hello, with the help of people on the site, I created a word document that allows me to reconcil a listing of documents delivered to me using a reconcil file from my vendor and inventory document that is created from a script that I wrote.

With that being said the spreadsheet works fine to compare one cell from another but if I have files that are missing from the list I can't which files are missing. I've attached my spreadsheet showing what I am talking about.

Essentially anything with a False does not match while anything that is true does match. I sort A-Z but when I am missing files names it gives the impression that I am missing files that may not be missing

Overall I would see if I can do a compare to see if what is missing and what is not missing.

Also, I'm a MYSQL / oracle person so I was curious how would I move this xls into Access to do a query there as well

You are not missing any files.
All file names in column A has a match in column B.

I have added this formula to column D

The formula looks in column B to see if the file name in column A can be found in column B.
There is a number in all cells in column D which means that all files have a match.
The number shows the row where the match is.
For the first False in row 165, the file name is in row 172.

I use a similar formula to find if the values in Column B exists in Column A by using formula:

=IF(ISNA( MATCH("*\" & B2,A:A,0) ), FALSE, TRUE)

which it will return true if it's found and false if it's not found.

The A:A,0 portion of the equation actually tells excel to compare B2 to all the values in column A correct?

yes, you're right on that. we are finding the values of "\" & B2 against the list in Column A.
