I have a table
name a 15
name b 16
name c 18
There will be 80 names and 54 numbers (1 to 54).
I need a formular that would search the list of numbers and report back any
duplicate numbers and missing numbers.
Is that possible?

Here is a simple solution. I put my names in A6:A85 and numbers in B6:B85
If your numbers are somewhere else change the references to $B$6:$B$85 in my
formulas but do not change reference to A1.
In C6 enter this formula =IF(COUNTIF($B$6:$B$85,B6)1,"Duplicate","")
Copy it down the column by double clicking the fill handle
Numbers that are duplicated will be so indicated
In D6 enter this formulas =IF(ISNA(MATCH(ROW(A1),$B$6:$B$85,0)),ROW(A1),"")
Copy down the column
Numbers that are missing in column B will be displayed in column D
