In one sheet of a multi-sheet workbook, I've got a column of customer
numbers. In a separate sheet, I've got a column of customer numbers which
represents a subset of the whole customer list.

I need to be able to add an alpha code (single letter) in a separate column
on the first sheet if the customer number on that row is contained in the
subset list on the second sheet.

Logically, Excel needs to look at the customer nimber on sheet 1 and try to
find it on sheet 2. If it does find it, place an "A" in the cell, if it does
not find it, leave the cell blank.

I've experimented with VLOOKUP and MATCH, but both return #N/A when the cell
is not found. I also tried creating an IF statement incorporating ISERROR or
ISNA, but neither are working for me.

How should I go about this formula?

Thanks,
David
