How can i find a particular cell value (in sheet 1) in an another entire sheet (sheet 2) if it exists or not? There are multiple number like this in the sheet 1, so i need a formula. Otherwise find option is working fine.

  • Are you describing VLookup or the INDEX+MATCH combo?

You can use the COUNTIF() function to count the number of cells that meet a specific criteria. If the count is greater than or equal to 1, the value exists, otherwise it doesn't.
