I need to compare dates from two workbooks. The dates are not entered in the same format. In order to compare them I store them in Date variables.
However, some dates entered do not have a standard date format (for example, day is missing) and I get an error when I try to store them in a Date variable.
The solution I thought out (most likely a bad one) was to temporarily re-dim the variable from Date to String when an error occured. The macro would then be able to store the incomplete date and do the comparison.
So, basically, the variable would be dim'ed once as a Date, then possibly dim'ed a second time as a String, and if this occurs, then it would be dim'ed back to a Date once the erroneous date would have been treated as a String.
My problem is that it doesn't appear to work if I use the dim statement because of "duplicate declaration in current scope". Is there a way to re-dim a variable as something else within the same macro?
I have to worksheets I get from two different dbases do the output is slightly different in each. What I need is simple, (I think). Just need to get a VBA that looks from Sheet1 to Sheet2 for a doc number. If it's not on Sheet 2, simply highlight it BLUE on Sheet, AND then looks from Sheet2 to Sheet1, and if it's not on Sheet1, then highlight the entry on Sheet2 GREEN.

I have attached two excel files for easier understanding of what I am trying to explain. One is named Deviltronics which is our product list, the other is named Supplier which is our suppliers product list. The suppliers product list is updated every hour to tell me of new products, products in stock, products out of stock and discontinued products. I have cut the suppliers file down considerably to get it to fit as an attachment on this thread. They currently have about 800 products. Now for how this is currently working and the problem:
I use the suppliers file to add the products to my website manually (which is fine) by using the information on the suppliers file. I also add the product title, SKU and part number from the suppliers file onto our Deviltronics file, this allows me to keep a record. The reason I need this record is so that I can use either the SKU or part number to search the suppliers file to see if a particular product is still in stock or not. You can distinguish the supplier has a lengthy product list, although we will not be putting all of there stock on our website at least 70% of it will be on there, therefore you can see how much of a lengthy process this is if I want to check the products on a daily basis......
In attached spreadsheet, I have run my marco on Col A to tag which records are duplicates (macro in workbook). Now, of the records that are tagged "DUP", I would like to find which cells in Cols B, C, D, etc. have changed - ie., compare the first "DUP" record to the second "DUP" record. Some records and 2 DUPs, others have 3, 4, etc. I only want to compare the tagged "DUP" groups. Changing the cell color (or other type of tagging) the difference is acceptable.
I am a relatively light Excel user. I mainly use it when working with the .dbf files that make-up GIS shapefiles.
My problem at hand: How can I compare/isolate the rows from spreadsheet #1 to #2 to determine which rows are unique to spreadsheet #1?
What I'm doing: I have a spreadsheet of addresses which I joined to our parcels shapefile to select those parcels. I am trying to determine the success rate of my join operation by isolating the rows which weren't joined. This would be determined by highlighting which rows from spreadsheet #1 aren't in #2.
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.
Example: Sheet1 contains records: a, b, c, d, e, f in rows Sheet2 contains records: a, d, e in rows Sheet3 must show: b, c, f in rows
I have two employee rosters, "yesterday" and "today", with same columns heading(First, Last, Location, Status, etc, etc, etc . I want to compare both rosters and highlight the differences on "today's" roster if an employee's information (location, status, etc) changes from yesterday.
Another change could be, an employee may not be on today's roster as he was yesterday and I could have a new employee on today's that wasn't on yesterday's. Is there a way to copy the row/record from yesterdays roster and add him to today's but highlight it so I know that he is gone?
Compare Two Sheets and Highlight Differences (Sheet attached)
I saw a great code which compared the values in two columns A and B, data such as A123 and then shows, in another column ie C , things in A and not in B and in another column ie D things in B and not in A.
I am trying to compare two worksheets and report the differences (data added or changed in the second, not necessarily data removed in the second). Afterwords I want to color code the third spreadsheet for if the whole row was added that it would make that whole row a different color and if one column in the row was changed that one column would change colors. Currently I am stumped on this, I tried searching the forums and found something that I made it to do the first part.
Sub test() Dim a, b(), i As Long, ii As Long, n As Long, nn As Long, fa As Long Dim z As String, zz As String a = Sheets("sheet1").Range("a1").CurrentRegion.Resize(, 8).Value With CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary") .CompareMode = vbTextCompare For i = 2 To UBound(a, 1) z = "": zz = "" For ii = 1 To UBound(a, 2) z = z & ";" & a(i, ii) Next zz = a(i, 5) & ";" & a(i, 6) .Item(z) = i: .Item(zz) = i Next .............................
I have included a small example file. What I would like to do is compare column A - Code on -CORP REC - on first sheet, with column A -code -SUPR REC on the second sheet. Then compare the differences and insert them into the third worksheet - discrepancy -Column A- Code and Column B Name.
Also is it possible to convert all the uppercase names on sheet one to lowercase as I would like the discrepancy sheet to names to be in lower case.
If other threads list exactly this I apologize. I am not really good at using others for adaption. but I can try if you want to direct me
I am currently trying to work out what the best way would be to search between two sheets and find out where the differences are. IO have sheet 1 and 2 which both have account numbers and details on. I searching off the first column on both sheets and trying to identify which records exist on sheet 1 but not on sheet 2. The code I have so far is
Sub check() data_sheet = "Sheet1" target_sheet = "sheet2" rowcn = 2 Do If Sheets(data_sheet). Cells(rowcn, 1) <> Sheets(target_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 1) Then Rows(rowcn).Select Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 3 End If rowcn = rowcn + 1 Loop While Sheets(data_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 1) > 0 End Sub
This currently works 50%. Only problem is that this code is not independant to each list, it simply looks at the same cell reference on both sheets and check whether the value is there. It doesnt actually go down the whole list and checks whether it is there.
I have two spreadsheets that I have to compare three columns in each to each other and find the difference between them. And I'm not sure how to do this.
I have attached a sample file to show what I'm looking at.
Basicly I need to know the differences between each spreadsheet based on zips. Each zip is assigned to a store and group and the "data" spreadsheet is the master. I need to compare the "system" spreadsheet and have it show me what is different based on each zip.
I need a macro that will compare two sheets, find the differences and produce a new third sheet called, results. Both sheets to compare will differ in length of values (one may have 10 numbers to compare, and the other could have 50, Ive attached sample data), and thus this calls for a primary and secondary sheet. I would only like the values which appear in the primary and not the secondary sheet to be reported in the new results sheet.
The problem is that the values never match up, but they are always within a +/- 0.5 window of each other. It would be great to compare the two sheets, to produce a list of the values which appear only in the primary sheet and not the secondary. Im trying to get this to link up to a userform, where the user select the primary sheet (A) and the secondary sheet (B), selects the tolerance, and produce the results sheet (see attached).
1. W1 has data in Column A, while W2 has none in that column (except for the header row of course). 2. W1 has rows that W2 does not have, and vice-versa.
I need code that will compare three columns in these two sheets. If the data in these three columns for a particular row match between the two worksheets, then for that row, I need the macro to copy the column A cell in W1 to the corresponding column A cell in W2. Finally, I would like an 'x' be placed into a W1 column if a match was found for that row.
The two sheets do not have the same number of rows, but the data being compared in the three columns should combine to form a unique row match between the two worksheets.
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.
I have two sheets in excel,Sheet1(worksheet) and Sheet2(worksheet).In Sheet1 I have certain numbers. In sheet2 I have some numbers which also include the numbers in sheet1.
Now I need to generate in sheet3 which has numbers which are in Sheet2 but not in Sheet1 with delimiters ( ; ) in between in one line. (EG: In Sheet1 I have say nos 1 to 10. In Sheet2 I have nos say 3,5,8 . In sheet3 there should be 1,2,4,6,7,9) Can you pls help me by providing code for this.
How can I compare two sheets for row differences? Example:
Sheet A: Dept Last Name Annual Salary Hired Date Current Pay 101 Smith, Mary $50K 1/1/2008 $2000 102 Anderson, Julie $40K 2/1/2008 $1500
Sheet B: Dept Last Name Annual Salary Hired Date June August 101 Smith, Mary $50K 1/1/2008 $2000 102 Anderson, Julie $40K 2/1/2008 $1500 101 Kelly,Brian $60K 5/1/2008 $2500
Basically, look at the two sheets and add updated current pay to August. If new entry then copy to sheet B and update for August. If new changes, then copy to a new row in sheet B and update for August. I also only want to compare 5 columns in the first row for all rows in Sheet B. What should I do?
We have a tariff table with the following data per row: Area code - Destination name - Price - and some other stuff that is not important. Once or twice a month we receive updates on Price for some destinations and maybe even some new rows with area codes and destination names that we do not have in our table. Can someone help me with a macro that will look into two sheets and do 2 operations:
1) taking as reference the Sheet2 - Column C (Price Tag) will update column C in Sheet1, using the Area Code (Column A) of both sheets as identifier to find to what row will apply the change;
2) if there is a new Area Code - Destination - etc. row that is not present in sheet1, will add it to sheet1
It does not matter to me if will update directly sheet1 or it will write the entire sheet1 content with the updates to Sheet3.
This is a physical inventory process. An employee, using a barcode reader, will populate the cells of one column in a worksheet with asset IDs that are located at a facility. Once done, the employee must compare the cell values of the worksheet that he or she has populated to the cell values of the inventory roster. The desired outcome is to produce a plus/delta report based on the comparison of the two worksheets.
creating a macro that would compare two worksheets and their differences would be copied into a third worksheet in the same workbook? Several key criteria is needed:
1) The third worksheet would need to note only the data from the 1st and 2nd worksheets (including headers) that had differences. An additional column would do the difference calculations for the data whereby numeric values are subtracted (worksheet 2 from worksheet 1 values) and non-numeric values would note "Pass" or "Fail".
2) All data values that had differences would be formatted in yellow shading on the third worksheet.
3) The unique ids from column A in worksheet 1 would have to have be noted in column A of the third worksheet; even if they didn't have a difference from worksheet 2.
4) The third worksheet would need to note all of the columns noted in worksheet 1 and include the difference column for each unique column.
5) Flexibility in code to allow for addition of new columns to analysis.
see attached sample spreadsheet whereby Worksheet 1 = "dv file", Worksheet 2 = "price file" and Worksheet 3 = "Error" for purposes of this discussion.
I have searched some of the other forums but have not found anything specifically related to what I'm trying to do.. An example is attached. Basically just want to compare data between two different lists and then in two additional columns (Differences & Similarities) display that corresponding data.
I have been given a task to compare a set of the current months employee records to last months employee records. The goal is to a) find employees who are still in our group but may have changed managers b) find employees who are no longer in our group and c) find employees that are new to our group. Once this information has been compared between the two workbooks, it needs to be exported to a new spreadsheet that needs additional columns added for formatting in order to import the new spreadsheet in a tracking tool.
For example, last months spreadsheet includes the tracking tool ID column and has a row for each employee. For an employee that is currently with the team they would need the tracking tool ID to be put in the newly generated spreadsheet. Additionally the current employee might have changed managers and that needs to be updated. A new column needs to be added to the new spreadsheet that shows that a current employee is "Active". For employees that are new to the team they won't have a tracking tool ID because they are new but would still need to be considered "Active". And for the employees that have left the group, they would also need the tracking tool ID from the old employee record but would need a column that would mark them "InActive" since they are no longer with the team. My last step is that I want to add a column called "Team" that would iterate through each employees managers and assign them to a specific team based on the manager that they have.
My general idea has been that I need to loop through all of the employee names or numbers from this months records for comparisons to the names of employees from last months records. Once a match has been found I need to copy the entire row from the current months to the new spreadsheet. That way I will get the latest info or "row" for a current employee and that would also handle finding if they have a new manager. Next I need to pull over the tracking ID from the last months records, create a new column called "Status" and make the employee "Active" and create a "Team" column showing the team.
For employees that are no longer on team, I need to copy the whole row from the latest employee records, pull over the tracking ID from the last months records, update the "Status" column and make the employee "InActive" and populate a "Team" cell showing the team. And lastly for the new employees, I need to copy over the row from this current months spreadsheet. They wont have a tracking ID (It will populated when the Excel file is imported in the tracking tool) and I need to update the Status column to "Active" and also provide their "Team". After the new spreadsheet is generated I am done. The file can be imported. And the next month I need to kick off this script again.
I am trying to find a way to compare the cells (example: D4:D12 to the same cell range in another workbook. If the value in D4 is less than D4 in workbook 2 highlight it red and if it is greater highlight it green. I also want a loop to go through the specified range. Of course, the scale of the worksheets is much greater. Another issue I foresee, is that the workbook name that I am comparing to changes every week, so is there a way to handle this change easily?
Is it possible to compare code that's in two cells and show the differences? It's possible with Notepad++ and an extension but I have hundreds of pages to examine weekly and it's not efficient to do it manually.
What I'm tying to achive is to compare data on two worksheets called "Old" and "New" and to populate the difference on another worksheet called "Diff" see attached file where I have manually added the differences onto the "Diff" tab.
I have two identical web query's on the same sheet. One from column A to column I and the other one from column K to column S, and both have 404 rows. The one on the left (from column A to I) autorefreshes every 60 minutes and the one on the right (from column K to S) autorefreshes every 4 minutes. I want to subtract the numbers in column Q from column G and the ones in column R from column H, and in both cases if the result is bigger than 0 to place a timestamp in column Y(for Q-G), and in column Z (for R-H). I tried with NOW formula, but the timestamp changed every time the web query from the right autorefreshed, no matter of the result. I guess that I have to use VBA codes...but I'm not good at that .
