    Im sure somebody out there can help,please!
    Is there any way of using advanced filter to filter data in a way that the end result is the "leftover data" and not the data in criteria data. I'll explain:

    Lets say Column A is the criteria range and Column B is the list range. Lets say there are 100 different model numbers in Column A and 250 different model numbers in Column B. I want to sort Column B so that I dont have any of the Column A data in it. Also,i dont know whether its worth mentioning it, but not all of the Column A data is featured in Column B.
    I think thats it. Any help would be appreciated!

    Hi Jonboy,

    I would approach this problem a different way. If you have your data in columns A and B as you describe, and assuming the data in column A goes from A2:A101 and in column B from B2:B251, I would enter the following formula in C2:

    =IF(COUNTIF($A$2:$A$101,B2)>0,"Yes","No")

    I would then drag down to C251. I would then simply turn on the autofilter and filter column C to just show "No". This will show you all the data in column B which is not contained in column A.

    Hope this helps and I'm on the right track!
