I have one spreadsheet with a list of over 3000 names.  I have 150 spreadsheets with 3 to 8 names each.  I need to check to see if the names on the smaller spreadsheets are on the one with 3000.  How do I do this one at a time or comparing all 150 at once.  Thanks, Paul

Hello Friends,

Using AutoFilter to filter data is a quick and easy way to find and work with a subset of data in a range of cells or table. Once you have filtered data in a range of cells or table, you can either reapply a filter to get up-to-date results, or clear a filter to redisplay all of the data.

Thanks and Regards,
Agili Ron

I appreciate the info Ron.  Unfortunately I am not an Excel guy except for basic sorting.  I tried the AutoFilter to try and figure it out, but I have no idea what I am doing.  Need to check all 150 xls files to see if the 3-8 names in each one are in the big xls with over 3000 entries.  Can you do a step by step for me.

 

Thanks,

Paul
