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:
A........................B.................C
procedure1...........................225-3
........................ 25-1...........22-2
.........................33 .............457
procedure2...........................33-55
.......................35-12...........25-6
.......................12-8.............25-1
procedure3...........................33-89
.....

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).

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.

I have two list of names, mostly duplicates. List in column B has about 30 more names than the list in Column A and I need to identify which names are in column B that are not in column A. Names are in exact same format since they were pulled from the same data base.

A B C D E F xxx xxxx xxx 123 123 xxx xxxx xxx 123A 123B xxx xxxx xxx 123B 123C

Is it possible to leave column A, B, C, D untouched and match against column E from column D?

If E matches D then leave in the same row and if E does not match D then move to column F? The identical numbers may be included in the columns, but different rows.

I have a set of transactions from one system which is column D and I have another set of transactions from another system which may or may not have the same transaction from column D. They are all sorted from + to -. I just need to match up cells from column E to column D.

I have two workbooks: one is a daily workbook that will be used to keep track of work accomplished, the other is a weekly report that is generated by head office.

What I need to do each week when the head office report is generated is to match up the Project ID's (they are the constant in each workbook) from the daily workbook with the weekly one. If there are Project ID's that are new, the corresponding information would then be copied over to the daily workbook.

I am working on the copy command but I'm just not sure how to go about setting up the search to match Project ID's.

I have two columns with hundreds of identical data and i need to match in column A with an identical data in column B.

The tricky thing is there are many identical data. Each identical data needs to match with another identical data in column B and then, remove matched data.

So, i need to display whats left unmatched in column A and in column B.Match Identical Data.xlsx

Here is an example:

Column A

100 200 300 400 100

Column B

400 200 300 100 500

Ending results should be showing unmatched "Column A: 100" & "column B:500"

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.

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.

I an using Excel 2003. In that i am having 2 columns (A&B). I need to take each value from Column A and search that cell value in Column B. If it is not found in Column B then delete the cell data in Column A. Then take the next cell data in Column A. Find operation and delete if not found. Do it for entire rows in column A. Then repeat that for Column B also. So my final result will be the same cell value in Column A and B. I need VBA code.

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 need a formula that will look at a entire work sheet find a name, then find a date, and display a string from a cell in the date row.

For example I want it to first find all the rows that has "Jane Doe", then find a specific date from those rows, and then display a value from a cell in that row. Keep in mind that the there will be no consistency with the row data, but the column's are static.

If our work for the intersection of two columns A, B supposed to be output 1, 2 and 3 Required to find the remainder of the A and show it automatically in column C The remainder of the B reveled in column D

Note: columns A,B repeat accepting of figures

To explain the result of the remaining column A is 1, 1, 5

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 two columns with numbers. For every row I want to find out if either of the numbers in the two columns is in a third column that I have with numbers. Does anyone know hoe to write a formula for this?

I am currently working for data validation team. I have to validate tons of data every week so it would be great if i could remove dupicates.

I want to compare two worsheets, sheet 1 has the order number with description (which i have to find) for the current month and sheet two has got standard report from the past week giving all the order numbers with no description. I need a VBA based macro to find all matching order numbers which are in sheet 1 column A, in sheet2 column A and return the corresponding value in column B in sheet 2 and also return the description in Column C.

Sheet1 apple pc sony camera lenovotablet apple laptop

Sheet2 sony television lenovopc

I need to compare Column A from Sheet2 with Sheet1 and where the values match, only replace THOSE values in Column B of Sheet1 with those in Column B of Sheet2. Hence, after the replacement, Sheet1 should look like (value for apple remains unchanged).

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.

I've got two workbooks, Workbook1 with a list in column a and Workbook2 with a list in column F. I want to compare the cells in these columns and delete the entire row in Workbook2 if there is a match.

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.

I have an Excel macro which works well in comparing two columns A and B. It populates column C with unique values in A and not in B, populates column D with unique values in column B and not in A and puts the values found in both A and B in the fifth column (E).

Data in the columns A and B of Sheet 1 has exceeded 1,048,576 (the maximum allowable in Excel 2007) and i will copy the overflow data in Sheet 2's column A and B and i will like the comparison to continue in the next worksheet.

I need the macro to treat the second worksheet as a continuation of the first sheet and not as a separate data. (The values i am comparing have exceeded 1million).

Sub twocols() Dim d As Object, na&, nb&, a, b Dim e, p&, q&, r&, m Set d = CreateObject("scripting.dictionary")

I want to compare 2 columns based on their positive and negative values..

For example,

A B C ID1 91 -7 ID2 -7 74 ID3 -4 -5 ID4 90 4 ID5 -55 34 ID6 33 3

I want to know 1) which id's have both negative values in both columns B & C, 2) which id's have both positive values in both columns B & C, and which id's have opposite signs in both columns B & C.

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:

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).

I'm trying to compile a VBA that would allow me to compare 2 columns "A" in different worksheets (same Workbook) and output any unique values to 3rd worksheet together with the rest of the values in the corresponding row.

I have 6 columns containing Agency IDs of different years. I would like to know which agencies appear in all the years. That is which agencies were funded for all the years. How can I do this? perhaps Vlookup?
