Matching And Sorting With Two Columns?

Jul 23, 2013

I am trying to 'stagger sort' multiple columns, but am having some difficulties.Ex.

Say A and B are lists of part no and C is data corresponding to column B. I have:

1 2 .
2 3 ,
4 4 ;
5 7 '
8 9 "

I want:
1 _ _
2 2 .
_ 3 ,
4 4 ;
5 _ _
_ 7 '
8 _ _
_ 9 "

(the _ are just supposed to be empty place holders, without them I have formatting issues)

Is there a 'quick' way to sort them this way?I am attaching the actual file that I am working with.

Sorting Multiple Columns ...

Sep 3, 2009

I have a potential of 5 columns of numerical data (simple number entries) which are entered manually in no particular order.

Is there any way of sorting the data so that it is presented in numerical order (smallest to largest) starting with the smallest figure at the start of column 1 up to the largest figure at the end of column 5.

Sorting Multiple Columns

Sep 8, 2008

How do I sort multiple columns at once? In other words, I have a chart that is a series of 1s and 2s, and I need all of the 1s to drop to the bottom, so that I can do a rudimentary chart in spreadsheet form. My chart has dozens of columns like so:

1 2 1 1 1 2 2 2 2
1 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 2
2 1 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
1 1 1 2 1 1 1 1 2

How do I get the entire range sorted to look like this, without having to do each column individually (hours of work)?:

2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
1 2 1 2 2 2 2 2 2
1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 2
1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2

Custom Sorting Of Multiple Columns?

Jun 20, 2013

In Column A there are randomly assigned numbers using the RANDBETWEEN function.

In Column B there are three possible values X, Y, and Z.

I want to create a sort order where "X" is always at the top but then the rest of the rows are randomly sorted by column A (Y and Z values are intermixed).

Currently I tried to use a Custom List and the value is "X" to sort first, and then a seconday sort of Column A. The problem is that column B is always sorted by X then Y then Z where I am trying to get the Y and Z values to be randomly intermixed based on the sort of the random numbers in Column A.

I know I can manually do 2 seperate sorts each time, but I would like to save a sort list to the file so I recreate that sort over and over again.

Sorting Multiple Columns Alphabetically

May 2, 2013

How do I sort multiple columns alphabetically with the last name first, then the first name as the 2nd sorting option?

Here is an example of what I have:

year; first; last
2011 chrisBell
2010 chrisBell
2009 chrisBell
2008 chrisBell

[Code] .......

As you can see, the first names aren't sorted 100% alphabetically. I think issue stems from the years 2001 n-2006 n. I have to use the 2001 n since its a different data than the normal 2001.

The default sorting was by year:

[Code] .......

So I want it to sort by last first, then first name. Then it should sort by the default sort I already had in the left column (years).

Index Matching With Multiple Columns

Oct 14, 2008

I'm trying to have a cell where I return the minimum value of column A but only when column B equals 380 and when C equals 80. I know how to do it if I select my range manually to be the range including all the 380's and 80's but I'd like to select the entire data set to look through so that I can easily change the criteria to say finding the minimum in Column A when B equals 420 and C equals 40.

Matching One Cell To Multiple Columns?

Dec 27, 2012

How to match one cell against multiple columns.

I have numbers in columns a through cc and cannot put them in descending order. I am using this formula:

=match(CF1,A10:A1008,0) I have to use a new cell and type the same formula =match(CF1,B10:B1008,0) then again =match(CF1,C10:C1008,0) I AM RUNNING OUT OF ROOM! Is there anyway to search all columns =match(CF1,A10:CC1008,0) ?? This formula doesn't work when I type it in.

I have tried shift control enter for an array and still no go.

I have tried vlookup
I have tried Index

Sorting A List Of Numbers By Multiple Columns

Oct 13, 2008

I want to sort the list like this:

1) If there is a zero (null) value in all 3 months, these records should be at the bottom sorted by record name (I did not show this field in my file).
2) If there is a non-zero (non-null) value in any of the 3 months, the records will be sorted with each other by total change.

Is there a way to do this without me doing sorts multiple times and manually moving rows of data around (which is what I have done to arrive at the list I have attached)? I am not experienced with VBA or Macros, and would prefer a detailed explanation if a solution is using either method.

VBA / Macros - Sorting Across Multiple Repetitive Columns?

Jan 27, 2014

I have attached an example spreadsheet with two tabs. The first tab (Matrix) shows raw data scores - there are 28 measures in Column A and Participants in Row 1. There are always 28 measures but participants can vary. What I need to happen is to sort each measure in a Lineup tab i.e. rank all the participants listed in the Matrix tab from lowest score to highest score for each of the 28 measures. Obviously this can be done manually but a VBA/macro solution will be so much faster and easier. Unfortunately I have to keep the data in this format so the macro will need to transpose the data to get into the formt in the Lineup tab.

Counting Matching Occurrences From Multiple Columns

Feb 1, 2007

I have a sheet with data which is all sorted by columns.

What I want to be able to count the occurrence of an instance when 2 cells in the same row (but in different columns) match my given criteria.

Ive been using 'countif' to count the instances in a single column and I am now aware that this is about all it can be used for.

An example of my data is:

1 a
1 a
1 c
2 d
2 c
3 b
3 b
3 c
3 d

What I want to be able to count for example is how many times '3' & 'b' occur on the same row (in this case the answer would be 2).

Im not very good with pivot tables and have tried but have not managed to find an answer. I really hope that someone can help as Ive been working on this probelm for days and quite frankly its doing my head in :-)

Finding Matching Data From Multiple Columns In 2 Different Excel Files?

Sep 27, 2013

I need to find if there are matching addresses in 2 different excel files. If the same address appears in both files, I would like the new worksheet to return the address along with the sale price from the 1 file and the rental amount from the other file.

I have tried using vlookup but the problem is the exported data file contains the street number in one column and the street name on another column. I have attached a truncated example of both the rental data and the residential sales data.

Sorting One Giant Column Into Multiple Columns Based On Cell Color?

Sep 3, 2013

I was handed a pdf of some leads by a co-worker. Finally, I got the data into excel but it's in a pretty useless format... 30,000 rows of contact info with no rhyme or reason. I want to upload this into our CRM, but I need to get all the different bits of info into separate columns. I'm no excel pro, but I managed to use an Excel plugin called ASAP tools to bring some order to this chaos... All names have a blue cell color, all titles have a green cell color, work phone is red, and so on.

Does anyone know a way that I can sort these into separate columns? I've trying playing with the Filter function, but it hides rows which makes the output useless for my purposes.

Inventory Sorting & Matching

Nov 30, 2009

I have inventory on an excel sheet with over 1500+ items. There are number of columns including: product id, product code, description, price, headline, path etc. I am uploading this to my online store I am creating. And, I have a lot of duplicate items so I can place them in different sections of the store by editing their path. However, these duplicate items in the excel sheet only have the product id, and not the description, price, and all the other cells. Thus, I need a forumla that will find matching product id's and fill in blank cells with their description, price, etc. so it will match its partner completely .......

Sorting By Index And Matching Formula

Jul 7, 2009

I'm attempting to sort a list of containers and their corresponding quantities (A24:B28 in the attached spreadsheet) by using a combination of an index and match formula (cells A31:A35) and a large formula (cells B31:B35) in order to have the container with the largest quantity (summed in cells B24:B28) appear below in cells A31:A35 and the corresponding quantities in cells B24:B28.

My current index and match formula works fine until I have the same quantities of different containers as I have replicated on the attached spreadsheet. When this is the case, the formula returns only one of the various container types. How do I edit the formula to allow for multiple containers with the same quantities?

Sorting Based On Matching Characteristics?

Feb 1, 2013

The scenario is as follows:

Each row describes a physical object. Each object has several columns for various physical characteristics. Each object is in one of several numbered bins (1, 2, 3, ...). One column on the end combines the rest of the characteristics into one line {=B2&C2&D2...}

Here's what I would like to happen:

I would like one last column to be a "new bin number" for each object. If the combined characteristics column of a given object is unique in the list, I want "bin new" to not change. If the combined characteristics column of a given object is not unique, but the matching object has the same value for the original bin number as the object in question, then "bin new" again does not change. If, however, there are matching objects in other bins, I need "bin new" for that object to return the lowest "old bin" value of all of the matching objects. Consider the simple example:

Link: [URL] .....

From there, I can sort the list by the "new" bin column, and that would preserve the existing list, except matching objects would get bumped up to the earliest instance of that object occurring in the list. In essence, my final sorted list needs to keep the original bin groups together, except in the case of matches where the matched objects in higher bin groups get placed with their lower bin group counterparts. This "new bin" scheme is the clearest way that I see that can accomplish this.

My attempt at a solution:

xls file: binsort.xls

I thought of using arrays. For the example above, I would highlight G2 through G10 and input the following formula:


and then hit ctrl+shift+enter. The issue is that the =E2 part does not iterate throughout, so it is always comparing the combined values in the 2nd row with itself, and thus returning "1" for every value in the "bin new" column. You can see this in the .xls file provided: column F is what I am trying to reproduce via the function, but column G is what I end up with instead.

Matching And Sorting Non-Identical Row Pairs

Nov 9, 2008

I have a database with 6 columns in play (there are actually other columns but they are not relevant). I'll call the columns A through F. I would like to be able to match certain counterpart rows together, do a sort placing the counterpart rows adjacent to one another, and then count how many pairs I have. (Some rows will have no counterparts.)

Here is a micro-illustration of the database:


I basically need to devise a formula or script that pairs together two rows that fit the following criteria:

1) The rows are identical in Columns B, C, D, and E.
2) The rows are not identical in Column F (i.e., one half of the pair should have "yes" and the other half should have "no")
3) The rows are as close together as possible according to the date sequence in Column A. For example, Row 1 should pair with Row 6, and Row 5 should pair with Row 7. Row 1 should not pair with Row 7, and Row 5 should not pair with Row 6. **This criterion seems tricky because R5 and R6 would technically fit the requirement for pairing, were it not for the fact that R1 comes earlier in the sequence.**

Matching 2 Columns On One Worksheet With 2 Columns On Another?

Apr 24, 2013

i need to match 2 columns on one worksheet with 2 columns on another.

One column is alphanumerical (Reference Numbers), the other is company names.

I need to ensure that both the Reference and Company name match from one sheet, with the company and reference from another.

e.g if A1 and B1 on Wks 1 = A1 and B1 on Wks 2 = TRUE, anything else is FALSE.

There is likely to be Reference number and Comapny name duplicates, therefore the trick is to ensure that the number of duplicates match?(I.E ABC Company, Reference number 1234 may appear 5 times on worksheet 1, however if it is only on Worksheet 2 4 times, then this must be flagged).

Sorting 4 Columns Together

Nov 6, 2007

Is there a code or some way for me to sort 4 columns together? I want to sort a list of employees and for each employee theres a column with their Lost Business, customer satisfaction, and two more columns. I want to sort all the columns at the same time so that the best employees overall will go to the top of the list and the worst ones will be at the bottom. Whenever I use the sorting feature it does each column independant of the others so everytime I sort a new column it just moves around the last one I sorted.

Sorting Columns

Apr 13, 2007

I have a spreadsheet that is populated my Concatinating data from other worksheets. Some of the results are numbers, some is data while others are blank spaces and othersare set by the concactenating default of "" when the criteria is not met. I need to sort these colums. However it seems that the default "" from the formula is not a BLANK or a ZERO or an empty cell.

Those cells will place themselves at the top of the sort. I need to eliniate them. I have copied and pasted as values but that has no effect. Ironically I can identify the cells with an if statement so what I need help with is generating a macro that will cycle thru the range of results and delete the approriate cells.

I have tried the following:

lr = Range("A1").End(xlDown).Row ' Last Row
lc = Range("A1").End(xlToRight).Column ' Last Column
For Each cell In Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(lc, lr))
AC = ActiveCell
If AC = "" Then Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp

But this does not work as it cycles top to bottom and leaves behind 1/2 the problem cells.

Matching Columns

May 6, 2009

I want to add these numbered steps onto the macro I already have, which I pasted below.

1. Starting in Row 2 in the worksheet named Report 1 look at contents in Column A then look at the contents in Column C, if the contents in Column C do not match exactly the contents in Column A then copy the contents in the range column C:E from that row till the last row in Column C:E.

2. Now we will have a range that is made up of cells from C:E. I would like to move that range down a row at a time, until the first cell in Column C from the range Column C:E matches exactly the contents in Column A. Then I would like to continue this pattern for every row in the worksheet.
