If list A has an item from list B create list C

  • Hi Guys,

    I receive a list of items pertaining a customer. I want to do is check if list A has an item from list B then create list C. The problem I’m having is that list A is all in one cell separated by a carriage return. So for example cell A3 has xxx xxy xxz, and can be up to 40 items. I want to compare it to list B which is on sheet 2 column A and if it is in list B show all matching items in cell C3, comma separated or carriage separated.

    Many thanks in advance
