ive got a list of 200 names in alphabetical order 2 spreadsheets ( the names in sheet 1 should be the same as in sheet2). Im am going to paste each list of names into a new sheet - into column A and column B.
I would like to be able to do 2 things:


1 - How do i run an exact function on the names to ensure that they are the same . I would like the exact function to run down the list of the names until the end one. Hoever the number of names in the list changes each time the process will need repeating


2 I then want to run a macro to search through the sheet and if it finds a "false" in one of the cells (i.e where the names dont match), to bring a message up on the screen. How would i do this?

Thank you very much
