Need guidance to create a db with two tables to compare hash values in each table

Post

I have an ongoing need to compare file hashes.  Usually I have a list of known bad hashes and another list of questioned hashes.  The questioned hashes need to be queried against the table of bad hashes and a field in the table of questioned hashes needs to be populated with the results, as in yes there's a matching hash or no there is not.  

I've been doing this in Excel, but once the sets get large, Excel becomes rather cumbersome as it is not a database!  

It's reallly a pretty simple thing, only I'm more familiar with forensics than I am configuring databases with FM ;->

Suggestions anyone

 

Thanks
