# (Match & Sort) Sort Columns B And C So That A And B Match Up Numerically

Feb 26, 2009

I would like to sort columns B and C (keeping the two lined up together) so that A and B match up numerically.

## Match And Sort By Two Columns

Feb 4, 2010

Column A has customer name, columns B,C,D has corresponding sales data for
that month. Column E is blank. Column F has has customer name. Column
G,H,I has the same corresponding sales data for the next month.

Although Column A and F both have customer names, there are many changes
month over month with the addition and deletion of certain customers so the
rows do not match up exactly. Is there a quick way to have the rows match up
according to customer names in column A and F and then sort them
alpabetically?

Currently my list looks like this:
Jan Feb
A A
B C
D D
F E
H F
L G
M H

I would like it to look like this:
Jan Feb
A A
B
C
D D
E
F F
G
H H
L
M

## Match And Sort Data In 6 Columns?

Jan 6, 2014

Column A has donor name, column B has corresponding donation data for 2011. Column C has donor name, and column D has donation data for 2012. Column E has donor name, and column F has corresponding donation data for 2013.

Although Columns A and C and E all have donor names, there are many changes
from year to year with the addition and deletion of certain donors so the rows do not match up exactly. Is there a quick way to have the rows match up according to donor names in column each of the three columns? Secondarily, I need to sort by donation amount from highest to lowest (it can either be the total over the three years or based on any single year.

Currently my list looks like this:
2011 2012 2013
A A A
B C B
D D C
F E D
H F I
L G K
M H M

I would like it to look like this:
2011 2012 2013
A A A
B - B
C C -
- D-
- E-
F F F
G G G
H - -
L - L
- - M

Basically, I want to see the year over year giving for each donor. I've attached a sample for refrence. (I can't post the original due to confidentiality requirements.)

## Sort And Match 2 Columns Of Data

Jul 19, 2012

I have 3 columns of data and 30,000+ rows. Column A & B are related and column C contains some of the same values as column B but not an exact match. I'm looking for a way to sort columns A & B so that columns B & C match up and the data from column A is moved as well. For any data that has no match, a blank space should be input. Please see below.

A B C

red dog cat
blue cat dog
green mouse pig
yellow horse kitten

## How Do You Sort Columns So That They Match Up With Other Columns With Like Data

Jul 2, 2008

I have two columns one is web addresses and the other is email addresses but the rows do not line up. I was hoping that since the second half of the email address matches the web address I could somehow sort them so that the email address column and web address column match up. Here is an example but keep in mind that this list is about 9k long and this is just a sampling so you may not see any in this example that match. Also I may have more than one email address per website.

## Sort Numerically By The Values

Oct 23, 2009

I have 9 columns of data in C2-C10 that I can sort numerically by the values in C2. All the numeric values in C2 are also in C1 but C1 has additional numbers not in C2.
I want to sort C2-C10 such that each row in C2-C10 aligns with its respective value in C1.

e.g. If C1 contains 1,2,5,8,34,42,56 and C2 contains only 2,5,34,56 I want the row (of C2-C10) with C2=2 to align with the cell where C1=2. And where C2=34 I want the row (C2-C10) with C2=34 to align with the cell where C1=34.
Is this possible though i'm not sure my explanation of what I want to do is good enough!

Note that my dataset is going to be very large (500,000 rows).

## Sort Postcode List Alphabetically And Numerically

Aug 8, 2013

How can I sort the attached list both alphabetically and numerically. I have a list of UK postcode sectors which I am trying to sort alphabetically and numerically, the order should be eg AB1 0, AB10 1, G2 1, G20 1 but excel wont allow that sort order. There are three postcode formats

XX11 1
X1 1
X11 1

Where X an Y could be any letters in the alphabet and 1 could be any digit 0 to 9. Have attached a short list and formula in column B which would allow me to sort the list in column A which I can then apply to my full list.

## Sort And Match

Dec 3, 2008

I consider myself an ok Excel user and use it within a window of comfort for lots of things successfully, however todays task has me stumped and extremely frustrated... cant see the wood for the trees...

I have a spreadsheet of data collected from two sources, columns A & B from one source and columns C to E from another.

There are usernames in columns B and C.

I need to sort the entire sheet so that a username in column B is aligned with the same name in column C (and keeps the rest of the data in the row together)

I have scoured the net for hours for what seems such a simple operation to no avail.

Example:

A B C D E

## Find, Match And Sort Macro

Jul 8, 2008

On my worksheet I have the 6 columns below starting in A1.

The Code is an ASX code and the PE is the price earnings for each code for the past 3 years

The 3 code columns A1, C1, E1 are letters and the 3 PE columns B1, D1, F1 are numbers.

I need to match and sort these so the codes with their PE's all match so I can compare them.

Using the codes in A1 to match the rest would be ideal as this is he most recent data.

Every year new stocks are added and some deleted so none of the rows match.

I have very basic vb skills and may be able to adapt some code already posted if anyone knows of some.

Code08 PE 08 Code07 PE 07 Code06 PE 06

AAC 3.4 AAC 5.5 AAC 12
AAF 6 AAE 13 AAI 3

## Formula To Reorder Data - Match/Sort/lookup

Jan 4, 2007

I have a data entry sheet for attendance that shows the individuals name, date and hours attended. Each individual attendance is addedd to a new row. I need to transpose this data and display it in a report table, with the names in column A and showing hours worked for each day of that week. The formula needs to accomodate the growing data entry sheet as records are added (I'm using a date picker to change the week in the report sheet).

I've tried match, lookup and index and have confused myself thoroughly! Below is a sample of the data entry sheet (on left) and report table (on right)

## Move And Sort With One Column But Insert Extra Columns As Needed For Proper Sort?

Jan 13, 2014

Using DataEntry sheet for data.
Trying to rearrange the data to DataFormatedProperly sheet.
So far all I can accomplish is DataFormatedWrong sheet.

Edit: Not sure what happened but file was NOT understandable before. It should be correct now.

## Sort Horizontally. Sort Across Columns

Dec 30, 2006

I am trying to sort a long range of text that is placed horizontally in a spreadsheet. I can do it vertically with the sort function in Excel but it does not seem to work for text that is placed horizontally. Example is as below:

## Excel 2010 :: How To Filter / Sort Data Based On Partial Match Of Data In Cell

Apr 16, 2013

I am using Excel 2010. I am a novice user.

I have a lot of data to filter / sort. I want to initially to create a filter for a column of data - which has the format similar to hierarchical paths to files. The data is a mix of text/numbers. e.g.

pathA/path_X/path_Y/path_Z/lso0_rxs_reg_254__5_0/d
pathA/path_X/path_Y/path_Z/lso0_rxs_reg_253__5_0/d
pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_17_0/d
pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_0_0/d
pathA/path_X/path_Y/path_Z/lso0_rxs_reg_255__5_0/d

[Code] .........

Doing an alphabetical sort of this date would return the following order. As you can see while each strings in unique - there are many instances where they are simialr - if you ignore the unique numeric values at the end of the string.

pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_0_0/d
pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_17_0/d
pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_4_0/d
pathA/path_X/path_Y/path_Z/lso0_rxs_reg_230__6_0/d

[Code] ......

So what I want to do is to create a filter for the strings - but ignoring the numeric bits at the end i.e.

reg_[0-9]+_+[0-9]+/d

The strings are obviiously of varying length and the number of hierarchical paths is different, so I can't split string on "/".

Similarly folder paths names can contain "_" so can't split string on this either.

As I don't know how many "/" or "-" instances there will be in the string I don't believe I can use the find function. Also as the amount of number will be different i don't think I can use =right(a1,X) either.

I may be able to search for the pattern above - as this is probabay unique - so maybe it's something like the following pseudo code:

Function GetString(txt As String) As String
With CreateObject("VBScript.RegExp")
.Pattern = "reg_d+(_)+d+//d"
GetString = .execute(txt)(0)
End With
End Function

If I do require VBA code - how do I then use this for creating a column filter? Or will I have to extract the filtered data first from the column (and its associated row data) into another worksheet to use?

Once I have the filter in place I want to create tables using the filtered data - so for example each column value above has a lot of associated data values in each row e.g

26 pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_0_0/d
32 pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_17_0/d
8 pathA/path_123/path_456/data_out_reg_4_0/d

So my table would show the name "data_out_reg" and the range of values 8-32

## Rank & Sort Table: Unique Numbers Sort Ascending, But The Non-unique Numbers Sort Descending

Oct 5, 2007

I have a list in rows where I have a ranking formula =COUNT(\$G\$5:\$G\$81)-(RANK(G5,\$G\$5:\$G\$81)+ COUNTIF(\$G\$5:G5,G5)-1)+1 When I sort the rank, ascending. All of the unique numbers sort ascending, but the non-unique numbers sort descending

ex) 1.751
2.52
3.753
418
417
416

## Sort Command - Custom Order Or Sort Ascending Or Descending

Oct 8, 2006

Is it possible to make excel sort ascending or descending but from mid way through alphabet and then loop through the alphabet again. for example. If Cell A1 had "A" in, it would sort as normal.

Cell A1 = A
Cell A2 = B
Cell A3 = C
Cell A4 = D
Cell A5 = E

If Cell A1 had "C" in, it would sort from "C" through the alphabet and then loop to the start of the alphabet as shown below.

Cell A1 = C
Cell A2 = D
Cell A3 = E
Cell A4 = A
Cell A5 = B

## Sort Worksheets Using Custom Sort To Choose Certain Word?

May 30, 2012

As of right now these are the steps i do to sort...i click custom sort choose My data has headers and then i select from the drop down list the word FRNAME.

is there any way i can setup a macro to do this for me? i tried recording the macro but it just is recording me choosing the column FRNAME is in. This does not work for me since FRNAME end up being in different columns all the time but will always be in row 1.

## Sort / Filter Rows: Sort A Range Of Row

Nov 26, 2008

I would like to ask if it is possible to sort a range of row? What I mean is, if I sort like Row 1, the entire block of row 1 will move as well? Like if i have column A to F, then row 1 of column A to F will move together at the same time.

## Macro To Sort Colums And Protect After Sort

Nov 5, 2009

I am looking for a macro to sort my colums in ascending order the range i need sorted is from A7:F107, it will be sorted with the numbers in the A column ie 1 - 107. sometimes different numbers get added and it has to be sorted in number sequence.

If possible i would also like a macro to protect this range after the sort,

## Match 2 Columns And Add Row Where There Is No Match?

Apr 22, 2014

I have a situation where I need to match 2 columns, Data in Column E & Data in Column R.

When there is not a match, there must be a set of cells/row inserted to the right or left depending on which data is missing and the data beneath must be shifted down.

There have been issues with doing this because once a cell is added, the formula for matching does not stay consistent.

I have attached an example where the tab "Final" is the end product needed and the First 2 Tabs are the Raw Data

The Steps are to take the data from the first 2 tabs and align them side beside only being divided by a column and another to match the 2.

## Sort Values In Column B To Match Values In Column A?

Jul 8, 2013

I have two DB extracts for 2012 and 2013 with customer id's that no not repeat across the year - columns A and B. I need to arrange this from:

2012
2013

270806
330011

330011
350529

350529
369916

to:
2012
2013

270806
0

330011
330011

350529
350529

0
369916

So the major idea is that the customers that are extinct in 2013 would appear as 0 in the Column B; customers that are the same would be aligned vs the previous year and new id's would appear on the separate row.

## Sort Multiple Columns, With Blanks, And Move All Columns Into One

Feb 15, 2010

I found this code on Ozgrid to sort all columns of a worksheet that were continuous with no gaps or spaces that works well:

Sub CopyToA()
Do While ActiveCell <> ""
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Cut Destination:=Range("a65535").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
Loop
End Sub

However, I've tried to manipulate the code myself to 1) find all columns that aren't empty then 2) sort each column individually (WITHOUT expanding the sort to other columns) and 3) combining all the numbers into one seperate column. There are many posts concerning sorting but not one that addressed this particular situation.

## Sort - Defined Sort Criteria

Sep 20, 2006

I have an Overview sheet within my workbook that contains info from all other sheets.

What I want to do is when you click on the Sort button in the General sheet it will activate the Overview Sheet and

- first off sort all sheets starting with AJ together, then all sheets starting with CJ together and then all sheets starting with PJ

- then the next thing i want it to do is sort all Ajs by their start dates, sort all CJs by their start dates and the same for all PJs.

Now up until now I was keeping all sheets that began with AJs together in the workbook and so on so I was able to use the following sort function

Sub Overview_sorting() ...

## Sort All Columns Except For Few

May 3, 2009

I am using a formula but when it sorts with the data in the adjacent cells it does not update the reference cells properly.

For example here is the =SUMPRODUCT((\$F\$12:\$WWX\$12>=C1)*1,(\$F\$12:\$WWX\$12<=E1)*1,ABS(\$F\$13:\$ZZ\$13))

This code is located on row 13, when I do a sort function with all the data, this code is then moved to row 30, that is fine but the code changes in the following way:

=SUMPRODUCT((\$F\$12:\$WWX\$12>=C18)*1,(\$F\$12:\$WWX\$12<=E18)*1,ABS(\$F\$13:\$ZZ\$13))

C1 & E1 should not have changed at all, F13 & ZZ13 should have changed to F30 & ZZ30.

I am not sure if there is a way to fix the formula so it updates correctly, or these cells can stay in the same place as long as everything else sorts.

Is is possible to sort all columns except a few?

## Sort Columns A B C D And E

Jul 8, 2009

I am trying to get columns A:E on Sheet1 converted into columns A:H on Sheet2. I attached the workbook with the macro so you can see what I am talking about. I posted the same macro in the workbook below. It comes close to what I am trying to do but it only sorts based on Column E. I would like to include Columns A, B, C, and D in the sort instead of just Column E so the display will look like Sheet2.

## Sort Columns - First A / Then B / Then C

Oct 29, 2012

I'm having a bit of trouble creating a macro that will sort columns in order - I've created a form that allows people to select a broad category ie) Schools, then a sub category ie) Primary or Secondary, and type in a third ie) Projects or Teachers

I'm trying to write a macro so that once they enter the form, their choices will be automatically sorted alphabetically, first by column A, then B, then C - to look like:

Schools - Primary - Projects - A
Schools - Primary - Projects - B
Schools - Primary - Projects - C
Schools - Primary - Teachers - B
Schools - Secondary - Projects - C
Schools - Secondary - Teachers - A
Schools - Secondary - Teachers - B
Schools - Secondary - Teachers - C

However I'm having the issue where if column B or C are left blank - the columns are not sorted properly, and the categories in column A get separated out..?

My code at the moment looks like:

Range("A1").Select
ActiveSheet.Unprotect
xlYes, OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
DataOption1:=xlSortNormal

## VBA: Sort On Two Columns

Oct 22, 2008

I have the necessity to execute a macro for sorting a list of data on two columns.
More exactly, let's suppose to have this situation:

A 10/2/2008 FFFF GGGG HHH
B 01/3/2008 PPPP LLLLL NNNN
B 12/4/2008 XXXX JJJJJ PPPP
B 08/1/2008 HHHH SSSS IIIII
C 15/10/2008 AAA BBBB CCC

I need this sort:
A 10/2/2008 FFFF GGGG HHH
B 08/1/2008 HHHH SSSS IIIII
B 01/3/2008 PPPP LLLLL NNNN
B 12/4/2008 XXXX JJJJJ PPPP
C 15/10/2008 AAA BBBB CCC
