How to check if a value exists in another column then sum in Excel?

1. Select a blank cell next to the data you want to sum, and enter this formula =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C2,$A$2:$A$7, 1, FALSE)),FALSE,TRUE ), then drag autofill handle down to apply this formula to the cells, if it displays TRUE, then the corresponding data exists in another column, and if it shows FALSE, the corresponding data is not in another column.

Note: in the formula, C2 is the first cell you want to check if exist in another column, A2:A7 is the criteria list, you can change them as you need.

2. Select the formula column and click Data > Filter to add Filter icon into the column, and click the icon to select TRUE from the Filter list. See screenshot:
