Tricky Excel question - a nutty one

Hi guys.

I have two spreadsheets. One of them has a whole range of data, with about 2000 rows and 20 columns. The first column is called 'Code' and each piece of data in this column is a 6 digit number. They are all different.

The second spreadsheet is very similar but has 3000 rows (and 20 columns like before). Again, the first column is called 'Code' and is filled with 6 digit numbers. Now, many of the fields in this first column are identical to those found in the first spreadsheet.

Does anyone know of a way for me to open to the second spreadsheet (the one with 3,000 lines) and have Excel check to see which of the fields in the 'Code' column are already present in the 'Code' column of spreadsheet 1 and automatically remove them, leaving me with the remaining 1,000 unique lines that are only present in the 2nd spreadsheet?

If anyone can help that would be awesome. :) Thanks.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
