Hello all,

I currently know how to do a conditional format on values to find duplicates using conditional formatting and the following formula:

=COUNTIF($U$2:U2,U2)>1

However, I now want to check Column U for duplicates of the values in Column V.

For example, if the number 54555586 occurs in column V AND in Column U, I want that particular value in Column U to be highlighted.

Please help!

That doesn't seem to work...it highlighted some values, but when I try to find those values in Column V, they don't exist.

Thanks,
Macdian

Acutally, it seemed to highlight the cell above...changed U2 to U1, and it works fine!!!
