Compare 2 Columns & Place Unique Values In A 3rd

Feb 12, 2008

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 Data In 2 Columns Extract Unique Values And Paste Into 3rd Column?

Sep 11, 2013

Here's how my daily report is currently set up:

ExternalInternalDifferences
123000123000
234564234564
345456345456
456567378987
565456456567
654547524564
788879565456
865478654547
745654
788879
865478

The External column contains data provided by an external vendor. The Internal column contains data compiled internally. The data in the Internal column will always contain data duplicate to the External column, but will also contain unique data not present in the External column. I would normally cut out the data contained in Internal column that is not duplicated in the External column, and paste it into the Differences column, and move the remaining cells in the Internal column up. The result would be the External column data and Internal column data would align by row, and the data unique to the Internal column is segregated to the Differences column, like so:

ExternalInternalDifferences
123000123000378987
234564234564524564
345456345456745654
456567456567
565456565456
654547654547
788879788879
865478865478

While not a difficult task for 8 rows of data, the actual daily report contains over 1000 rows, on average. I would like to set up a template workbook, where I can simply open the template workbook, paste the data into both the External and Internal columns, then have the values that are unique to the Internal column extracted from the Internal column and inserted into the Differences column.

The end product would be used daily, with differing amounts of data (from 100 rows to 10,000 rows).

Using VLOOKUP To Compare Values Without Unique ID?

Mar 18, 2013

I have a somewhat convoluted problem. I am trying to develop a QA tool that compares data from a user-created spreadsheet against data from an automated spreadsheet. From my (admittedly small) understanding of Excel, this would be easy to do using VLOOKUP, however there will not be any unique IDs between two columns.

To better visualize this, imagine on Sheet A the following:

Placement Name
Ad Tag
Clickthrough URL

[Code]....

Essentially what I am trying to do compare data from a manually filled in sheet against data that would output the above, and make sure that everything matches up correctly. .

Compare 2 Different Columns Of Data - Find Unique Results

Mar 2, 2007

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)

Oct 13, 2008

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
12342122
45671112
89101718
11122678
13144544
15162324
17189987
19201215
21221928
1976
2576
2345
4678

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.

Count Unique Values In Column Based On Values In Other Columns

Mar 14, 2014

I'm running into an issue trying to calculate unique values in a Data column based on a few variables in other columns.

My current formula in Summary tab D4:D19 is
{=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!$I$3:$I$66<$E$1,IF(Data!$A$3:$A$66=$H$1,
IF(Data!$C$3:$C$66=A4,ROW(Data!$I$3:$I$66)))),ROW(Data!$I$3:$I$66)),1))
+
SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!$I$3:$I$66<$E$1,IF(Data!$A$3:$A$66=$I$1,
IF(Data!$C$3:$C$66=A4,ROW(Data!$I$3:$I$66)))),ROW(Data!$I$3:$I$66)),1))}

This is currently counting the number of times a date value (data column I) appears for that name (A4:A19) in the data when meeting all of the conditions. I need it to instead count the number of times a unique date appears for that name with the additional conditions met (which all appear to work fine).

The results in the pink highlighted cells (Summary column D) should be:

Names starting with A - 3
All others - 2

I've left some other columns in the data with X's so that I can easily convert this back to my working spreadsheet.

Look Across Values In 12 Columns, Return The Number Of Unique Values

Apr 17, 2009

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

Mar 3, 2008

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").

Example:
B E
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.

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.

Compare Two Columns And Show Only Non Matching Values

Basically I have Two Columns.

Column A: Column B:

GE0025 GN0001
GR0026 GE0025
DR1235 GR0026
DP0012 DR1235
GS0025
PC128


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

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).

Compare Values In Multiple Columns And Return A Result

Mar 17, 2009

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.

Getting Unique Values In Multiple Columns Using Formulas

I need to list only the unique values in a range found in multiple columns. Some cells are blank. I need to list all the unique values in numeric and/or alphanumeric order in another column within the same worksheet. I would prefer non-array formulas, if possible. See the attached file.

In the attached table, I have 5 columns and 5 rows of values in the range B2:F6. The unique values, in order, are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. This looks simple and can be done manually if the file is small but I have 150 columns and 150 rows, thus the need for automation.

Unique Row Headers / Values To Subsequent Columns

Mar 9, 2014

I have a table similar to the table on the left, and I need to convert it to something like what is on the right. Ultimately I will concatenate the numbers in the table on the right too with commas between, so if for some reason it's easier to go straight to that, that's an option.

So in the example below, states will be listed multiple times with a unique number next to it each time. The state may be listed up to say ten times or as little as one. Each time it is listed, it will have a different number next to it. I need to reformat this into one where each state is only listed once, and each possible number is next to it in one row.

Counting Unique Values, 2 Columns, Alphanumeric

Feb 16, 2005

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):

=sum(if(frequency(if($b$2:$b$18=$f7,$a$2:$a$18),$a$2:$a$18)<>"",1,0))

List Unique Values Of Multiple Columns

Mar 12, 2008

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.

Macro To Compare Values In User Specified Columns And Return To Different Workbook

Feb 21, 2014

I am trying to create a macro that will compare several un-formatted workbooks and copy just what I want to a workbook of my one.

I start by having 2 different workbooks opened ("Main" and "Change") side by side like this: 1.jpg

Then i run the macro in my "Main" workbook and it should appear an Userform like it showed in the image below: 2.jpg

This is so that i can manually fill the user form with the correct columns by looking at the excel file, for example:
Ref=E3;City=G3; Data=I3.

Pressing Ok, it fill the "Main" workbook with the matching information so it and closes the "Change" workbook.

At the moment my code is in this stage:

VB:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
myfile = "C:Userssst1brgDesktopRelatorios" & TextBox1.Value
Application.Workbooks.Open Filename:=myfile
Windows.Arrange ArrangeStyle:=xlVertical

[Code] .....

But I am stuck because there isn't any error and nothing happens.

Create 1 List Of Unique Values From 12 Columns Of Data

I have a spreadsheet of 12 columns (A to L), with a list of student names under each down to row 31. Each column represents an after-school club that the child can attend.

However, a child can sign up to multiple clubs, so their name can appear in several places across the spreadsheet.

What I would like to do is have a 13th column which is an overall list of students who have signed up to at least 1 club, i.e. their name appears at least once in columns A to L.

How do I achieve this so that only unique entries are listed and duplicates are removed in this 13th column?
