    Default Align two columns of data

    I have two columns of data of different lengths (more rows in one column). I need to compare the second column to the first and align (by row) similar cells. How can you do this???

    Hi There,

    Welcome to the board..

    Copy this into your third column..

    =IF(ISNA(MATCH(B1,$A$1:$A$15,0)),"",B1)

    Paste the shorter list into the first column and then the longer list in the second column.

    You might want to extend the range also ",$A$1:$A$[to last cell of second column],0"..

    Hope this works..

    Have a good weekend..
