Align 2 Tables, Match Two Outputs From A Database

My goal is to match two outputs from a database so that the same person's record can be found on one row. At present output 2 does not marry up to output 1 due to staff leaving and new appointments being made. The data in output 1 should remain static. The data in output 2 must be manipulated to match the order of output 1.

Output 1 is a 5 column record containing (in A6:E6)

Forename, Surname, Branch, Roll Number, and a % score

Output 2 is again a 5 column record containing (in G6:K6)

Forename, Surname, Branch, Roll Number, and a % score

Each employee can be identified by a unique Roll Number Code contained in the fourth column of each record.
If an ideal match has been found I'd like the letter Y to be inserted in the L column of each record to signify a positive comparison. All non matches should have the letter N in the L column & these non matches should be placed at the bottom of the dataset.

Match And Align Data Based On Unique ID Numbers
I have list of unique numbers on Column A and names on Column B. I have another set of unique numbers on Column C and counters on Column D. I have 100 numbers on Column A and I have 10 numbers on Column C. Every numbers on Column C exists on Column A. How do I match and align the unique numbers and have Column B and D in same row? (E.g. 100000 Jones 30). This question is very similar to the one discussed at Aligning Columns With Same Data?

Database Functions Vs. Array Formulas Vs. SUMPRODUCT Vs. Pivot Tables
All I am doing is counting text values in a table.

The table has 3 main columns(which are relevant to this thread anyway).

Shift - Area - Status

The example I have attached shows examples of DCOUNTA, SUMPRODUCT and a Pivot Table.

I have read many threads stating that the best one to use is Pivot Table followed by DCOUNTA followed by SUMPRODUCT.

The most effective for me seems to be SUMPRODUCT (although this does slow excel down dramatically when you use a lot of these formulas). As do Array Formulas

The Pivot Table does not update on its own, therefore constantly needs to be refreshed. (I could use code to do this)

The DCOUNTA seems to be the least effective at doing what I want (unless I am doing something wrong)

In the attached example can the DCOUNTA be used more efficiently as I don't like the fact that I am duplicating rows to apply the criteria for a different shift. e.g

Area 1 - Late Shift - Banned
Area 1 - Early Shift - Banned

I want my table to be as follows (as the SUMPRODUCT shows)

AREA - Early Shift - Late Shift - Night Shift - Area Total
Area 1
Area 2
Area 3
Area 4
Area 5

Shift Total

Recognize Value And Generate Outputs
The issue: Theres about 300 rows of data arranged in multiple columns. One column has a dollar amount and another column has a code. Data gets entered into the sheet periodically so every new dollar amount needs to be transferred to another sheet by recognizing the right code.

What I want to do: I want excel to recognize the dollar amount and attribute it to the code in the same row. Then sum and transfer that amount to another sheet and if possible add it to an existing amount the in the correct cell.

The final outcome should be that any user of the document can just copy and paste data into one sheet and the document automatically generates the costs in another sheet. And if possible every dollar amount should be linked to a code so a user can just click on the amount and see where it came from and under what code it falls under.

Random Generator With Several Outputs
I need a formula to create random letters down a column: A-F. Probability of A=3%, B=6%, C=8%, D=11%, E=14%, F=16%. I've got it worked out to where each letter is a header of a column ("A" is in A1, "B" is in B1, etc.). My question is: how do I consolidate that in one column, so that, "A" for example, reads ABFCBACFBFBECEABCEABCEAFBCEFBCAFEBCFAEBFC...? I'm using the random number generator for the 6 columns...thx

Search With Multiple Inputs/Outputs
I am looking to create an excel search with two input and three output values on Sheet 1 that will link to a table on Sheet 2. To help illustrate:

Sheet 1:

The two white cells indicate the two input values, and the three blue cells indicate the three desired output values.

Sheet 2:

I want to enter the two input values (Length and Width), press the "Search" button, and have the corresponding output values (DWG#, Item #, and Tooling #) from Sheet 2 appear in the three output cells on Sheet 1.

However, as volumes vary by each month, the number od workers required should also be reflective of changing in volumes worked upon.

Limit Decimal Outputs In A Userform Textbox
I have a textbox on a userform.

The textbox is populated with a number which is generated by a formula which is
the result of a "Select Case" module.

On some occasions, for instance when dividing 1000 by 3, I get a result with recurring decimals in this case 33.333333333.

Is it possible to make the "result" round to the nearest whole number?
The textbox is named "inDorW".

Arranging Outputs: Pulls The Weather For Today Into Cell A1, And The Forecasts For The Following 3 Days Are In A4, A9, Then A19
The weather data I receive from a web query pulls data in oddly. For example, some days it pulls the weather for today into cell A1, and the forecasts for the following 3 days are in A4, A9, then A19. The cells in between are blank, and the problem is that it pulls it in randomly otherwise I could just have the cells reference it (ex. some days it pulls it into A2, A8, etc) What I need to do is arrange it, in order, without the blank rows, but I want to do this without deleting the rows.

Move And Align Cells
I have a task that I need to perform every now and then. And even though I normally find my ways around in Excel, I can't find a working solution for this one.

I have a list of features that I need to match with another list and place them on the same rows in my sheet. The attached file contains 2 worksheets where "Before" shows my normal input, and "Wanted" shows what I need to do.

Cols A-E contains info for the first set of features, cols G and H is the cells I want to move. Please note that sometimes the G and H columns contains info that are not present in A-E, and then I need to move those features around as well. An example is present at the bottom of the "Wanted" sheet.

Align Command Buttons On UserForm
I've fought with this issue off and on for some time now and decided it was time to come to you for help. In the attached workbook there is a UserForm with five (5) command buttons along the bottom of the UserForm. I'm familiar with making them the same size and aligning tops. What I'm struggling with is how to distribute them horizontally. That is, to get the same amount of "white space" between them.

I have tried using Ctrl + arrow key to move in small increments, but that didn't work.

Pull Characters From Alpanumerics And Right Align
I am trying to create a data sheet to simplify the filling of corporate documents on our company computer systems. I have a working system, flawed, but working. What I want is to simplify it and correct some mistakes I made when I first made it. At the moment the priority is the field for our serial numbers. They vary from 1 to 10 digits in length with a alpha-numeric system. Some serial numbers even include hyphens, but the hyphens need to be removed for the forms. My system uses a modified form to allow for hyphens, but my boss wants them removed. ^^'

Anyways, the serial number of an item is entered into the data sheet field and my macro breaks down the serial number piece by piece. On the form the there are ten blocks for each digit of the serial number and I have coded the macro to put one digit per box. The trick is that the serial number must be right aligned and any empty fields must stay empty. This is where my request comes into play. I have already programmed the macro to do everything required except remove hyphens. The problem is that it is a REALLY long macro using If Then End statements to to compensate for the varying lengths of a serial number. Is there anyway to simplify this task?

Public Sub SerialNo()

Dim SerialNo As String
Dim SerialNo1 As String
Dim SerialNo2 As String
Dim SerialNo3 As String
Dim SerialNo4 As String
Dim SerialNo5 As String
Dim SerialNo6 As String
Dim SerialNo7 As String
Dim SerialNo8 As String
Dim SerialNo9 As String
Dim SerialNo10 As String

Vba - Chart To Align Data Required
I am a PhD student and have a series of coordinates for various DNA sequences. I need to generate an excel chart which will show all the sequences aligned one on top of the other, not like a stacked bar, but where no gaps are found between the bars. So that they appear as if they have ‘fallen down’ as you would see with ‘Tetris’. This would end up with a bell shaped chart, rather than a messy chart. I need to do this to demonstrate which sections of the entire sequence appear more often. Can this be done using VBA or is there a way to modify a chart? I have no previous experience using VBA so I'm close to pulling my hair out.

Align Numbers From 2 Columns In Parent Child Manner
I have searched numerous times for the answer I need, but no joy yet.

I have a spread sheet that has one column (call it 1) of data with a single entry each of 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, and so on.

I have a second column (call it 2) that has multiple entries of 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, and so on, and I want to sort so that the rows wind up with the numbers in column 1 all sorted in an accending order, but I want all the same numbers in column 2 sorted to "list" next to the same number before the next number sorts. See below for a small example of what I hope to see once it sorts.

Add Blank Cells For People Not On Each Years List So All Names Align

My question is, is there a way to sort alphabetically that will automatically align column a,c,e,g,and i alphabetically that will also align each row by name.

name 04 05 06
joe 75 72
paul 82

Joe isn't present in 05, Paul isn't present in 04 or 06, and Carl isn't present in 06.

Multiple Outputs From An "IF" Statement
Attached is a sample of a ledger I am making for my small business. Under the ' books' column, having the output display nothing for a row with no entry was simple, but I can't figure out how to have three different displays for the 'bank' column. The idea of this ledger is that I can continuously balance my books by entering the check mark as transactions are posted. The thing is, I don't want to have the balance display all the way down the sheet when there are no entries in those rows.
