The workbook in the above folder contains two lists of Grand Prix circuits for Formula 1 (thanks, Wikipedia): one list for 2020 and one for 2021.  Your task is to create a text file listing those circuits included in the 2020 race calendar but not the 2021 one:

Final output

This is what the final text file produced should look like.

 

You can have lists of lists: so you could loop from 2020 to 2021 getting a list of the circuits for each year, and for each year you could add this list of circuits to a master list of lists of circuits.  You could then use the Subtract lists action to compare the first and second list stored in your master list!

To get this working, create a flow called Compare list of GP circuits.  When your flow is working perfectly, save it and close it down.
