OK I am new to all of this,

I have two lists:

HD1
HD2
HD3
OSB1
OSB3
OSB4

and

HD2
HD1
OSB4
HD2
OSB3
HD3

I need to compare both lists and then show in a single cell which is missning from list 2, it needs to be the word two not how many are missing.

Any help would be appreciated.

=ISNA(MATCH($A1;List2;0)) => TRUE if A1 not in List2.
=IF(ISNA(MATCH($A1;List2;0));$A1;"") => A1 if A1 not in List2, else emtpy string.
