Comparing values and text in Excel

Excel Useful Info
Method 1 – Exact()

There comes a time when you will want to compare the contents of one cell to the contents of another – regardless of where these cells are (same or different books).

If they are in two different workbooks, make sure that both books are open.  Choose one of them to perform the comparison in.

Click on a cell that you can use for your comparison.

Use the function Exact(first cell, second cell)

That is all.  If they are an exact match – you will see True in the cell.  If they are not exact – you will see False.

Please keep a look out for the other ways of comparing data
