Comparing Two Columns in Excel 2007

Resolved Question:

I'm using Excel 2007. I have two columns(A & B) of ticket numbers. I would like to compare the two columns against each other. If column B has any of the same ticket numbers that A has, I would like those removed from column B and place into column C.Can ya help me out?

What row does your data start on?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Andrew,
The data begins in Row 1 for both columns. However, Column A has 2572 rows, and Column B has 2926 rows.
Expert:  The-PC-Guy replied 1 year ago.
ok it doesn't matter how many rows. Just needed to know the start row to give proper formula.

Just so you know this formula doesn't remove numbers from Column B, what it will do is compare the numbers in B and A, and put any numbers that match in Column C, and a blank wherever they don't match.

Enter the following into cell C1, then copy down the C collumn, for as many rows as you have numbers in collumn B

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(B1,A:A,1,FALSE),"")

Let me know if you get stuck with this formula.
