Compare And Search Columns For Text?Apr 14, 2009
I recently posted a similar thread which was very well supported but I couldn’t get a solution because my requirements were not clear enough. I would like to try again with a slightly easier and clearer requirement.
I would like a spreadsheet that compares and searches columns for text and returns true if a duplicate is found.
It is similar to a lottery checker except the lines being checked could be a string instead of a single character.
I have attached a spreadsheet which helps explain what I’m trying to achieve.
Basically, a user can sequentially enter a single character to cells F1:F5. These values are then compared to columns A:C. If one of the columns contain the values in column F then return true to G1.
