I have an Excel document with two columns of data. I'd like to quickly see what values in column A exist in column B.

For example, imagine column A had the list of US President last names and column B had a list of the names of the states in the United States.

I'd like to see that the value "Washington" exists in both columns A and B.

Thanks
