Okay so I have a list of numbers that will be pasted next to an already placed VLOOKUP function, this VLOOKUP will lookup the numbers pasted in another list. This means the VLOOKUP returns a list of all the numbers that already exist in the 'lookup list' and then #N/A if a new number is there. I want a formula that returns those new numbers... for example

'Lookup list' Pasted VLOOKUP New (formula I'm looking for)
#245 #245 #245 #233
#267 #233 #N/A #288
#244 #267 #267
#235 #244 #244
#266 #288 #N/A
#235 #235
#266 #266

Thanks,
Matt
