Check if values in two columns match values in two columns in another sheet

Options

Hi. I am trying to create a function that places a check mark in the checkbox if the values in two columns within the same row in sheet 1 exactly match the values in two columns within the same row in a second reference sheet. The rows in the two sheets do not need to be the same. Can someone please help?

Thanks, Jason

    Hi Jason,

    Is there any unique identifier that’s the same on both sheets?

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, andree@getdone.se)

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

    Hi Andrée, thanks for responding so quickly.

    For example, in the following sheet, I want the "Standard" box to be automatically checked if, for that row, the "Manufacturer of asset" (Bruker) and "Asset Sub-Class" (EPR) are the same as can be found in the master reference sheet...

    Reference sheet:

    Where "Asset Sub-Class" (EPR) = "Preferred Manufacturer" (Bruker).

    Please let me know if you need more clarification. Thanks. Jason
