Compare 2 Columns & Place Unique Values In A 3rd

I have a database with 2 un identical columns: A, and B. Each cell in Column A should have an equivelant cell somewhere in column B. I want a code that could compare each cell in column A with each cell in Column B. Cells in A that don't have equivelant in B should have their values printed in column C.

Compare The Two Columns And Pull Out The Unique Entries
I have two columns in Excel.

I want to compare the two columns and pull out the unique entries.

So any entries that are in both column 1 and column 2 I don't want anymore.

I just want all the entries that are NOT IN BOTH columns.

Compare 2 Different Columns Of Data - Find Unique Results
I would like to compare some keyword lists if possible.

I have a large list of Unique keywords in Col A (From A3),

This Column is called Keyword List A - Large"

I then have a keyword list in Column C (From Cell C3),,

This Column is called "Keyword List B - Small.

I then have a column called "Unique Keywords Found",, This is Col E,, with hopefully returned results being entered from cell E3 downwards.

What I would like to be able to do if possible is run a Macro that would compare all the unique words in ColA and C and return only the difference, (The Unique words not found in ColC as Col A is the "Master List")

If possible could a pop up box appear saying
List A No Rows:xyz
List B No Rows: xyz
No of Uniques Found : xyz
Time Elapsed (sec): xyz

I'm running windows XP and Excel 2007.

Counting Formula (compare Values In 2 Separate Columns To See How Many Times The Same Value Appears In Both Columns)
I'm trying to compare values in 2 separate columns to see how many times the same value appears in both columns. Ideally I would be able to insert a range function to compare the values in the column "ID 1" against the values in column "ID 2" and return the count of times that a value appears in both columns. For example 2122, 1112 and 1718 appear in both columns and I would like the formula to return a count of 3.

ID 1ID 2

In my actual project I'm comparing 2 columns in the same worksheet. The column are column B with data in cells B2:B10266 against column C with data in cells C2:C18560.

Look Across Values In 12 Columns, Return The Number Of Unique Values
I have 12 columns of data. In those 12 columns of data I have 3 digit numeric IDs. I want to count the unique number of IDs for each row. I have about 14K rows.

What would be the best way to do so?

Some rules about how the data is stored. I have 12 columns of data with anywhere from 1 to 12 columns having data for each respondent. Data always fills left to right and never skips columns.

I have attached an example file that represents how the data is stored and the output I would like (Unique Count).

Compare Values In Two Of The Columns
I have a worksheet where I want to compare values in two of the columns.
In column B there are EAN codes consisting of 13 digits.
In column E there are 5-digit numbers.

What I want to do is to compare the 5 digit number with the EAN code where these digits should be in position 7-12 in the EAN code. Those numbers in column E that doesn't have a match in column B should be marked (for example that the background color of that cell is set to "red").

XXXXXX12345X 12345 (match - do nothing)
XXXXXX12346X 12346 (match - do nothing)
XXXXXX12348X 12347 (no match - set background color to red)
XXXXXX12349X 12348 (match - do nothing)
XXXXXX12350X 12349 (match - do nothing)
XXXXXX12351X 12352 (no match - set background color to red)

There are more values in column E than B.

In all there are close to 4500 rows so I really could use a nifty macro to do this job.

Compare Values In 2 Columns And Find Corresponding Value In 3rd
I have gone through various posts but am unable to get the answer. What I'm trying to do is find if a value (text or number) in Col. A exists anywhere in Col C. and if it does, find the corresponding entry in Col. D and paste it back against the value of Col. A in Col. B. To explain better I have attached a sample excel file Ex1. In the file, the entry "sun" in Col A is present in Col C and the corresponding value in Col D is 24 which should be pasted back against "sun" in Col B.

Compare Two Columns And Show Only Non Matching Values
Basically I have Two Columns.

Column A: Column B:

GN0001 DB0002
DB0002 DP0012
GE0025 GN0001
GR0026 GE0025
DR1235 GR0026
DP0012 DR1235

Column A is the master codes list for a unique product.

Now every time a product is sold, its unique code number is entered into column B.

What I want excel to do is compare Column A and Column B and show me only the codes that DO NOT match.

This way I know which items should be present in store when I do a physical stock check.

So the end result should be:

Column A: Column B: Column C:

GN0001 DB0002 GS0025
DB0002 DP0012 PC128
GE0025 GN0001
GR0026 GE0025
DR1235 GR0026
DP0012 DR1235

Compare 2 Columns To Find Unmatched Values
Is there a function to compare 2 columns to find all of the values from one column that are not in the other column? Basically my data looks like this:
........................ 25-1...........22-2
.........................33 .............457

I have another list of data (just the numbers like columnB) that I want to put in column C and see what is in column C that isn't in column B. The numbers will be arranged in a different order, and there will be data in column B that isn't in column C. What I need to do is find out what is in column C that isn't in column B so that I can go back and define what procedure they fit into (that is a seperate process).

Counting Unique Values, 2 Columns, Alphanumeric
I have two columns of data: 1 column can be possibly anything, either numeric, alphanumeric, or alpha only (VINS or vehicle numbers). The adjacent column are four different types of vehicles. I've tried concatentating the two to try and count the unique combinations (a truck maybe used more than once during the day), which I can get unique values, but not unique values for each type. Also, the range sizes are variable, but no more that 65 rows.

An example:

5CZ975 Van
25RW04 Straight
5CZ975 Van
ZJ6026 Van

So, the result I am after is 2 vans, 1 straight truck

I found an array in a another post, but it is not working properly (see cell F7 in the attached):

List Unique Values Of Multiple Columns
I need a UDF to make live easier. I have a huge excel file and I need a final function (I suppose a UDF) that lists all values from a range spanning over multiple columns and rows. I would not really like a macro, since it does not update when certain values are changed.

It's part of a bigger functionality, but I need this one, really bad, since it spans over 6000 rows as the search range, and 7000 as the search values. In short:
I got to list all the unique values. They are in specific cells on worksheet 1 (A1:C5 and A25:C31) and should be listed on worksheet2 starting in field A2. As 'simple' as that. Nothing more, nothing less, just list all unique values of a certain range, which I specify. If it can not be done, by selecting the two fields separately, it's no problem at all to list all values in eg A1:C6000. Do note that some of the cells will be blank, and I don't need blanks. I only need the actual data sets. I added a sample excel file, that shows a representation of the data. I can not upload the actual file, since it's way too big (60 MB). So a sample file should give you the idea.

Three sheets:
Data 1: some value lists multiple columns
Data 2: some value lists, again multiple columns
Desired result: the result as it should be listed.

Compare Values In Multiple Columns And Return A Result
I have a spreadsheet with three years worth of data for a property I manage. Each column has cost data for the year and the specific department/cost for that year as the row value.

I have a column between the years that calculates the percent of gross revenue for the specific department/cost.

I would like to find (or create) a formula that will compare the percentage (or specific cost) for the three years within the specific row and if the increase year over year over year exceeds a trigger value it returns something (check me out/true/false) whatever.

The cost items for the property are in the hundreds so I'm trying to come up with a way to quickly see what specific cost items are going up (or down) more rapidly then what would be considered normal.

This is my general template. I get prices from BOA, LEH AND BEAR on the four companies listed. Then I use the Min function to tell me the best price (I'm buying). Then I use some IF statements to tell me who's the "Lowest Name" (lowest price):


It checks if a cell is = the lowest cell value, then returns the header. This formula refers to different columns than my displayed sheet because Im hiding so cells and I just copied this to another section of my sheet. There's probably a better way to do this but this is what I have do far. I use this for 50 company names and 5 or six dealer banks (BOA, LEH, etc)

I'd like column that gives me the Second Place price and one that gives me the associated dealer (BOA, LEH).

Summary Sheet Update Keeping Set Columns In Place
using code to take raw data from one workbook <book1> tab <Phase1RawData> and pasting to summary workbook <book2> onto <SummarySheet>. New data is available with each Phase (14 in all) and will eventually fill all cells as indicated in the Summary Sheet Page. However raw data has in any one Phase only the columns up to the Phase its currently at. So Phase 1 will only have Phase 1 column, Phase two will have columns for Phase 1 and 2, Phase 3 will have 1,2,3 and so on (the example Book1 has two example sheets for phase 1 and phase 2 data - so each phase has a column added with the previous columns remaining.)

The problem is in having the summary sheet always show all 14 phases colmns (as in the example attached) irrespective of which Phase is being updated. So if up to Phase 3, insert the raw data available will be colmns for Phase 1, 2 and 3 - but I need ensure after that has been updated only the remaining Phase colums to 14 show. That is, if Phase 1, 2 or 3 etc are now in place, insert the remaining blank Phase columns to, and including Phase 14. Need to do this at end of each phase until 14 is met. The data up to column S is all from the raw data original sheet - Items from Column T I insert independantly as the data is transferred.

Fill In The 3 Criteria Fields, Calculate The Result, Copy The Result, And Place It Into The Correct Place On The Table
I have a macro that imputs data from an external database and puts it into a temporary worksheet. This data has 3 columns (ID, Date, Amount). I am then making another sheet which has X number of tables (one for each ID), with the years being the column headings, and months being the row headings. ie.

| ID X
| +------+------+------+--->
| | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 |
| Jan | $100 | $250 | $300 |
| Feb | $200 | $300 | $200 |
| Mar | $300 | $250 | $100 |
| Sum | $600 | $800 | $600 |
| +------+------+------+--->

| ID Y
| +------+------+------+--->
| | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 |
| Jan | $100 | $250 | $300 |
| Feb | $200 | $300 | $200 |
| Mar | $300 | $250 | $100 |
| Sum | $600 | $800 | $600 |
| +------+------+------+--->

Currently I have a few hidden fields for the DSUM Criteria. I start making the tables. And then filling in table based off of the month and year. Doing so I need 3 criteria:
>= First Day of the Month
<= Last Day of the Month
= ID #

The problem is it takes Excel too long to fill in the 3 criteria fields, calculate the result, copy the result, and place it into the correct place on the table. Is there another way to get this data into the correct tables faster? Instead of using DSUM?

Vlookup - Compare Two Columns
I need a Vlookup to look at two columns when searching. here is an example:

Sheet 1 is my report grid to hand out to the employees, A1 has a drop-down list with my employees names and A2 one for the month, when you click an employee name the vlookup formula fills in the information from sheet 2 (data sheet).

Sheet 2 has data like: Col 1= Month, col 2=employee L-name, col 3= production etc...

currently the vlookup formula messes up because the employee name is in there multiple times because of the months column, i have to delete all months except the one i need. formula is: =vlookup(A1,'sheet2'!,B:C,2,false)

this formula will pull the data in sheet two column 3 (production) for the employee that matches.

how can i make it compare first to col 1 (month) and then col 2 (employee).

Compare All Columns To First And Update
I receive hundreds of excels which I combine into one sheet for input into a program (which I don't know much about). The combined sheet contains 2 columns repeated with different information. For instance Column A is Category, Column B is Dollar Amount, Column C is Category,
Column D is Dollar Amount and so on.

I then start with Column A and compare it to Column C to make sure the categories match. If C is a new category (not listed in Column A) I shift columns A and B down one and add the new category to Column A. This updates my master list in column A but also maintain the format and correct dollar amount that was listed in Column B. Then I move to Column E and compare it to A using the same logic.

I repeat this process throughout hundreds of columns. I then delete all the category columns and am left with Column A as a master category list and all the dollar amounts in the correct location for all excels that have been sent in. I'm hoping someone here knows a faster way for me to do
this using VB or VBA for Excel or a Macro. I've tried a few things I've found on these forums to no avail, and I'm not an expert when it comes to this. This currently takes me days to complete, and I know it should not take this long. Please save my sanity!

I can change the value of sheet 4 A2 to "123x" from "123" and the code stops as described. Leaving sheet 4 A1 as 100% numeric, which works fine.

Compare Columns Of Data
I have column A with 228 rows and column D with 314 rows. Both columns have the same data except that D has different data. I would like to line up everything that is the same in A and D and everything else in column D that is not the same move to G. Is there a quick way to do this?

Compare Across Multiple Columns
I can find lots of ways to compare two lists with single columns, but I need a very basic guide to comparing multiple ones across two sets of data and then highlighting or extracting the unique records. I would prefer to keep the data in the existing columns for later sorting and other purposes.

I currently have the two datasets as two separate worksheets in an Excel 2003 file. The two datasets consist of the same three columns containing strings of text, but there is quite a difference in the number of rows. Dataset One is c. 3550 records, Dataset 2 is c. 1600. There are no duplicate records within each dataset, but there are duplications across the datasets and the records are in a different order, so it's not a matter of comparing Row 1 to Row 1 and so on. The data look a bit like this (semi-colons to show columns):

PM;Smith;Mary Anne
PM;Jones;Fred Henry
PD;Wilson;Peter John
PG;Green;William Laurence

Compare Two Columns And Return Value
I have two columns with the same data type (text) and I want to compare one column to another and if they match, return the data from another column.

For example: I have 2 columns of names on separate Excel files. One file contains name and phone numbers, while the other doesn't. I want to compare the names from file one with file two and if the names match, return the corresponding phone number in a new column.

I've tried VLOOKUP and IF statements, but I can't get it to come out.

Compare Data In Columns
I have 2 columns say A and B (infinite number of rows)
A is an Indexed number starting at 1
B is numerical data.

I now have a second set of the same columns with the same data, however some rows are missing. I need a way of comparing the data and then display the rows I am missing in the second set of columns.

For example the first set will be the master list and look like:
Index Data
1 34
2 46
3 54
4 276
5 311
6 89

Second list has row 2 and row 5 missing.

Index Data
1 34
3 54
4 276
6 89

The desired result is to have the missing rows displayed;

Index Data

2 46
5 311
