Hi,

If you are familiar with excel formulas I can post the general formula here so you can adapt it to your data, otherwise please send me your file to set it up for you

I am familiar with a lot of formulas I have tried to use vlookup but, have had issues
Expert:  John D replied 3 years ago.

Ok paste this formula in F2

=IF(COUNTIF(\$C\$2:\$C\$9999,A2)>0,1,0)+IF(COUNTIF(\$E\$2:\$E\$9999,A2)>0,1,0)

then fill it down to the last row

It returns 0 if no matches with A2 are found, 1 if a match is found in one column, and 2 if matches are found in both columns

Hope this is ok. Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for clicking Accept if you are satisfied with the solution
