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 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.

Matching 2 Fields In 2 Columns And Copying A 3rd Field Into The 3rd Column
I need a formula. Probably Vlookup. I'm having a LOT of trouble trying to figure out how to "phrase" the formula so let me explain what it is I'm trying to do. If a cell in Sheet 1 Column AS and a cell in Sheet 2 Column B match exactly, I want the cell in Sheet 2 Column C that is in the same row as the matched cell in Sheet 2 Column B to be copied into Sheet 1 Column BB in the same row as the matched cell in Sheet 1 Column AS.
For example, if cells in S1 Column AS and S2 Column B both have the name "LOS ANGELES" then "KLAX" will be copied from cell in S2 Column C (in same row as "LOS ANGELES") to S1 Column BB (in same row as "LOS ANGELES").

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

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 Two Worksheets And Gerenerate Differences In 3rd
I have two worksheets. Sheet1 is a Master List and Sheet2 is subset of Master List. Now I have to separate those records which are there in Master List, but not there is Sheet2 and list them in Sheet3.

Sheet2 contains records: a, d, e in rows
Sheet3 must show: b, c, f in rows
Compare 2 Sheets And Display Differences On 3rd
1. Got 2 lists in 2 sheets, those I want to compare and all the diffrences in all columns, I want to display in the third sheet.
2. The lists are the same structure.
3.Blad1 or Sheet1 is the list that is the latest.
4.Blad2 or Sheet2 is the list from yesterday.
So i want to compare newest with yesterday and all the diffs come up in the third.
So if there is a change in column A to W new planning date or planning status, or a new added row I want these to turn up in blad3 / sheet3. Canīt get my excelfiles to fit the maxupload criteria. Anyone got any idea on how to do this easy? Would like to do it macro wise due to I do couple of macros before this step.
Compare Two Columns And Show Only Non Matching Values
Basically I have Two Columns.
Column A: Column B:
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
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:
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).
How Can I Compare Strings To A Keyword List And Return A 3rd Value
I am trying to create my own budgeting tool. I have most of the tracker set up but I hit a stumbling block. I downloaded transations from Bank of America as a CSV file into excel. I want to categorize these transactions.
I created a keyword list that has words like "Starbucks" "Exxon" etc. Each of these keywords is then listed next to a category like "food" and "gas". So I want a formula that will compare the transactions to my keyword list and return the category type. Here is an example transaction:
CHECKCARD 0256 STARBUCKS USA 00029801 GAINESVILLE VA
I have a keyword "Starbucks" in f2 and "food" in g2.
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.
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.
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 Two Ranges In Different Workbooks And Copy Data To A 3rd Workbook
I have two spreadsheets in different workbooks ( workbook 1: sheet 1 and workbook2: sheet1), here i need to compare column 5 in Book1 and Column 5 for all cells, say X is the value we are looking for..
X occurs once in book1 and might occur more than once in book2..so if a match occurs ( that is once the code checks that there is X occuring in both books in columns 5) it should copy all rows in book 2 where X occurs to a new workbook 3 in sheet 1 and also it shoud copy entire row data where X occurs in book 1 sheet 1 . But this data from book 1 has to be copied at the end of row after the data from book 2 has been copied.
if X occurs 4 times in book 2 , then 4 rows have to be copied in book 3 and then data from Book 1 where X occurs only once is copied 4 times at the end of the data from book 2.
this process has to repeated for all cells in columns 5 in book1 and column 5 in book2 .

Dim NewRange As Range

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.

Creating A Macro To Compare 2 Sheets In A Workbook And Print The Differences To A 3rd Sheet
Creating a macro to compare 2 sheets in a workbook and print the differences to a 3rd sheet.
Each sheet will have the same number of fields, 5 columns with the header in the first row.
All values in the cells are integer except for the last field which will be a character.
The key is the value in the 2nd column. If it's not in the other sheet, then it's a new record. If it's a new record then highlight it a color depending on what sheet contains the new record. Now if the key is the same in both sheets, then check the other columns to see what's different. If there is a difference, print the record for both sheets in the third sheet and highlight the differences. I attached a sample of what I want.

How Do I Lookup Based On 2 Columns And Return A 3rd
I have 2 worksheets with thousands of rows. I need to lookup 2 columns (customer account # and number of occurrence) and then return a 3rd column (type of occurrence).
How do I do this? Normally I use sumproduct but in this case I need the result to be the text value for the type of call, not a count.
Match Data From 2 Columns And Then Return Value From A 3rd One
1. i am comparing text
2. i have >100 countries, and with vlookup i have to type every single one, and this is what i want to escape (mb i need to refer to an array, or string, or no idea)
3. mb a solution could be sth with index, or match, i just tried it, copying some similar formula from www, but it didn't match the countries, and return the value respective for that country.
E.g. I have China in col1 (1st file), #employees 10 in col2 (1st file), and China in Col 1 in 2nd file. So, a formula should match China & China from both files, and return 10 as number of employees.
Check Two Columns At The Same Time And Return The Value In The 3rd
Is there a good way to check two columns at the same time and return the value in the 3rd?
12 0.07 8
12 0.37 10
12 0.82 12
12 1.30 15
12 3.90 22
12 8.00 28
12 15.00 35
I look for 12 in the first column with vlookup but I need to also look for a figure in the 2nd column which is greater than my figure. So say I want 12 & 6.0 I would want the formula result to be 28 because the nearest larger number in the table column 2 is 8.00.

For column E >> The result in column F is: Port Blair.,
I would like that to be in Column D after a match.
Is there any forumula which will do this.,
Copy Duplicates Between 2 Worksheet Columns To 3rd Sheet
Iím trying to do is identify duplicates in a LARGE column of numeric data. As a matter of fact, itís about 112,000 rows which wonít fit on one spreadsheet since a spreadsheet can only handle 65,536 rows. So the caveats are that the information needing scanned for duplicates is all ONE body of data even though it is on 2 spreadsheets so I am not comparing one sheet of information to the other rather all 112,000 lines need checked for duplicates as a whole. Once duplicates are found I would like them to be highlighted in yellow on the original 2 worksheets but then also have the duplicates copied to a new sheet.

[HtmlMaker 2.42] To see the formula in the cells just click on the cells hyperlink or click the Name box
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).
Match Values In One Column To Values In Another With A 3rd Column Included
I have about 360 records in Column 1 and less columns in Column 2 (333 in this case). All the values in Column 2 are in Column 1. I need to be able to match those two columns up while keeping the data in Column 3 intact with it's corresponding value in Column 2. FYI I searched and found this thread: ttp://www.excelforum.com/excel-work...n-another.html
But my problem is that I have to tie in the values with column 3 to their corresponding values in column 2. In order to illustrate, I have attached an excel file in which I did the operation manually. (note: all values in column 2 are indeed in column 1 but not in the example as I have shown for the sake of convenience).

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.
Compare And Leave Only Unique Data In Sheet
what i want to do is use 2 sets of data ss is attached to help understand
i would like to compare hometeam v player
therefore any games that steven gerrard didnt play in ( in the example )
it would leave all the games on sheet 3 where he wasnt involved.
hometeam has all the games liverpool involved in
player has all the games steven gerrard involved in
cross reference the 2 to leave all the games he wasnt involved in on a new tab

What I need to do is check the data for the following conditions and if it meets the crirteria I need excel to place a 1 in column D or E.
If any of the coulmn data contains a value less than .5 I need a 1 placed in column D
If any of the column data contains a value greater than .5 but less than 1.0, I need a 1 placed in Column E. I tried using an IF/ Count If statement, but cant seem to get it to return the result I need.
Compare Two Cells & Return Unique Characters
I have two columns that have similar information. I want to copy the unique information from one cell to a third, blank cell.

Compare Multiple Sheets And Paste Unique Records In Seperate Sheet
I have 1 workbook, with 3 sheets. Sheet1 (EVER) has 3000+ rows and 12 columns of customer information. This sheet is for all customers who have ever placed an order. Sheet2 (06-07) has 1500+ rows and 12 columns of customer information. This sheet has all customers who have placed an order in the last 2 years. Sheet3 has 1 row, which consists of the column titles (12 columns) that are on Sheet1 and Sheet2.
I need to put all customers that are on Sheet1, but not on Sheet2 in Sheet3. I have tried VLookup; advanced Filter and a number of codes in the last 3 days and have not been able to figure this out.
Macro To Copy And Place Data To Specific Place
I am after a macro to do the following, my visual basic skills are very limited (non existant):- Look at the date in cell A1 on Sheet 'Live Report' and err 'remember it' Copy a range of cells from A3 to A10 on 'Live Report' Go to sheet 'Monthly Summary' and find the date that had been remembered previously (this date will be in column A on 'Monthly Summary' which will probably be a mixture of values and formulas). After the date has been found paste special and transpose the 'values only' copied range from 'Live Report' (A3 to A10) in column B on 'Monthly Summary' next to the date that has been found in Column A.
