We need more information in order to help you with this.
1. What is being populated in the cells B4,C4?
2. What kind of data is in the cells C1=B3?
3. What are the criteria for matching?
4. Are there more than just those 2 cells that are being compare?

If you cold attach an example workbook that would help a lot with figuring out how to help you with this problem.

The simplest formula that could work based on what you have in your question you could fill each cell that needs to be filled with this formula:
=IF(C1=B3,"Fill this cell with Data, They match!","There is no match")

Open in new window


Adding that into each cell (B4,C4,B5,C5,B6,C6) Will put the value "Fill this cell with Data, They match!" when they do match and with "There is no match" when they do not.
