# Comparing stock lists

Hi,

We receive stock lists from our suppliers on a daily basis with thousands of products on. It shows us the quantity of the items remaining, however if we were to filter by low stock (for example 5 and under) we would still end up with hundreds of products that we would be looking at day in day out. Is there a way to let us see which items were on 10 yesterday but are now on 0 without showing all the ones that were on 0 the previous day? For example

``````Stock item A - Day 1 quantity 20, Day 2 quantity 0 - flag up on the stocklist somehow
Stock item B - Day 1 quantity 0, Day 2 quantity 0 - don't flag up as previously dealt with
``````

I tried the “compare document” option under edit but couldn’t quite get this to work.

Thanks in advance.

Given data in two different sheets, column A being the list of items, column B being the quantity, from row 2 to 201, and previous list in “Yesterday” sheet.

`=IF(AND(VLOOKUP(A2;Yesterday.A\$2:B\$201;2;0)>=10;B2=0);"flag";"")`

See sample file.
