    I want to do this but to check not for a single value but for a list of values, I want to check if a list of values(short) is contained in another list of values (large), there can be repeated values in the large list...

      Good day,
      You can use this formula =MATCH(A2,$C$2:$C$12,0) in the Conditional Formatting feature to highlight the same values when found in another column. Thanks for your comment.
