Hello!

I want to know if it's possible to direct check if the value from a cell can be found in the cell of a range, or do I have to compare the value with all the values from the cell in the range???


Thanks in advance,
Chris

There are numerous ways this could be done. See Excel Help "lookup functions"

Here is one which looks for value in cell A1 in range B1:B15 :-
=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,$B$1:$B$15,1,FALSE)),"Not found","Found")

Here is another one:
=IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH(A1,$B$1:$B$15,0)),"Found","Not found")
