How do I reference cell ranges if I have a dynamic range (such as an updating database list compared to a static list)?

EDIT: Nevermind. I learned how to use Dynamic Defined Ranges to replace the hardcoded array ranges. The Microsoft support page tutorial really helped. Now I need to learn how to eliminate duplicates on list 2 from appearing on my formulaic list ("list 3" if you will).
