Formula for D2 is
<pre>=IF(YEAR(C2)=2007,IF(A2 & B2=Sheet2!A2 & Sheet2!B2,"planned","not planned"),"")</pre>

Please explain why you expect something different than SammyB's formula yields.
BTW, two of the dates on Sheet1 are not valid  they contain a double slash //.

Re: formula help (excel2003)
In row 2 on Sheet1, name = "sma" and numb = 1. This combination occurs on Sheet2 in row 2, and the year is 2007.
In row 3 on Sheet1, name = "hana" and numb = 2. This combination occurs on Sheet2 in row 8, and the year is 2007.
Why should the first one be "planned" and the second one "not planned"? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>
PS Your workbook contains 3 empty modules. You shouldn't include modules in an attachment unless they are essential for the question.

Re: formula help (excel2003)
hansv,
both should be planned as i showed in the attached file expected results column, but applying SammyB's formula it assumes the data in both sheets have the same order, which is not.
see what i am after is a two criteria condition, one matching sheet 2 name& numb with name&numb in sheet 1 if match exist then it will be "planned", next for all other name and numb in sheet 1 which are not "planned" from the previous step (one) but they are 2007 i want them to be "not planned".
regards,TIA

Re: formula help (excel2003)
Oops, sorry, I switched the expected result with that of the formula. Try this array formula in D2 (confirm with Ctrl+Shift+Enter):
=IF(YEAR(C2)=2007,IF(ISERROR(MATCH(A2&B2,Sheet2!$A $2:$A$9&Sheet2!$B$2:$B$9,0)),"not planned","planned"),"")
You can fill down this formula.
