Hi,
I saw this post here Any clever solutions to speed up a 50,000 row MATCH formula? and I find it useful. I didn't want to piggyback so I've opened a new thread. I'm getting some odd results using my data. The concept is still the same. I'm trying to find data in column B not in column A. I've sorted column A in ascending order. Why is formula in C7 and C8 returning #NA and not N?

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)

If you drop column A down one cell & put an "a" in A1, you should be ok, as long as none of the values in col b start with a number.
