Hello,
I need some assistance if possible please.

Data in sheet 1, col B.
Data in sheet 2, col B.

If data in Sheet 2 Col B is the same as Sheet 1 Col B, highlight the duplicate in sheet 2.

Thanks

Select column B on Sheet2. Cell B1 should be the active cell in the selection.

On the Home tab of the ribbon, select Conditional Formatting > New Rule...

Select 'Use a formula to determine which cells to format'.

Enter the formula

 

=ISNUMBER(MATCH(B1, 'Sheet 1'!B:B, 0))

 

Substitute the real name of Sheet 1.

Click Format...

Activate the Fill tab.

Select a highlight color.

Click OK, then click OK again.

Thanks so much.
