Hi friends, In this article we learn use of **Exact Function in Excel. **

in Excel **Exact Function** is used when we required to compare two text or any two cell values.

Exact Function compare two values and if it is exactly **Match** its return with **True** otherwise it is returns **False.
Exact Function is case Sensitive .
**

**Syntax : – Exact(Text 1, Text 2)**

Table of Contents

**Text1**Required. The first text or value.**Text2**Required. The second text or value.

Lets understand with some examples.

Here in screenshot enter some values in both columns.

**Now** We Check with first value of both Column is it match or not ?

**Syntax : =Exact (Text1,Text2)**

For that we have to perform below given steps :

- Enter Function in output cell
- =EXACT(B12,C12)
- press Enter
- Function is return result as
**TRUE**because both cell text exactly match with each other.

Now Check for another cell text with same formula.

Red mark Cell now we compare and check.

**Syntax : =Exact (Text1,Text2)**

- Enter Function in output cell
- =EXACT(B14,C14)
- press Enter
- Exact Function will return
**False**result because Exact is case sensitive means it is match exact text with upper -lower case in given value. IF it is match then only result is**True**otherwise it is return with**False.**

**H**ere first both latter is both text is different so function return with False result.

Now check for on another value . where two % value is available .lets check with function that value is correctly match or not?

**Syntax : =Exact (Text1,Text2)**

- Enter Function in output cell
- =EXACT(B14,C14)
- press Enter
- Function return result
**False**result.

Here you think both values are same then why output result is **False ?** Result is False because there is one value is 50 % and second one is 49.99 % . Excel showing round off as 50 % but actually it is 49.99 % so Exact function return as False.
