I have 2 seperate excel sheets. Both have a customer name, address, phone and so forth. One sheet has our current clients and the other sheet has posible prospects. I would like to check and see if any of our current clients reside on the prospect sheets so we do not need to call them. This way I can eliminate any duplicates from the sheets.

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Try:

=If(Isnumber(Match(A1,Sheet2!$A$1:$A$100,0)),"Match","No Match")

Where A1 is the 1st client to match and Sheet2!A1:A100 is the list of clients in Sheet 2.

Adjust references, ranges and sheet names to suit and copy down the formula.
