Welcome to the community.  Here's how to solve the challenge:


1.  Use a JOIN tool


With inputs from the two Excel sheets (Left and Right), configure your join on the "NAME" fields.  There will be 3 output anchors (L,J,R) for Left unique, Join, and Right unique outputs.  If #1 is Left and #2 is Right, you will take the output from LEFT and you can use an output tool to write those names to another file.
