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
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 am trying to compare multiple column in a worksheet to find common component in all the columns and what is unique to a particular column only. And list the results/finding in adj column. What i am trying to accomplish is something as below.
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 have a worksheet with five columns (A, B, C, D and E)
The cells in Column B contain letters and/or numbers (without spaces) in no particular order. The cells in Column C contain letters and/or numbers (without spaces) in no particular order.
I want to compare all characters in 1st Cell of Column B with all characters in 1st Cell of Column C, and display the matching characters in 1st Cell of Column D, and the character count of 1st Cell in Column D must be displayed in 1st Cell of Column E. note that multiple instances of the same character must not be treated as duplicates. When execution on 1st Row is finished then repeat procedure for Row 2, etc... Stop execution when first empty cell in Column B is located.
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 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 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 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.
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 need creating a macro which compare the values of "Column B" of attached both "Sample1" and "Sample2" excel files and if any unique value found in Column B of "Sample2" file then the entire row should be get copied in "Sample1" file after row count.
For ex. the rows colored as yellow in "Sample2" file are unique and should be get copied in "Sample1" file.
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?
i want to compare data between 4 columns, 2 columns of data is in Sheet 1 and 2 columns of data is in sheet2. Data starts at A5 in both worksheets. Data consists of stock codes and there holdings. Sheet 1 data is real data the primary source, sheet 2 data is a bit of real data and incorrect data.
My data in sheet 1 is layed out as below, this is just a sample, real data has around 1500 stock codes and holdings.
Starting at A5 Col A (Stock) Col B (Holdings) 5 aap 10500 6 aax 10987 7 aas 76544
Sheet 2 data is layed out as above but holdings may differ, so
Col A(Stock) Col B (Holdings)
5 aap 10500 6 aax 10300 7 aas 76534
I need a formula which will tell me which stocks holdings have changed in sheet 2 compared to sheet1.
I'm working with Excel 2007, I have two tabs on my spreadsheet, each tab contains a column of numbers formatted like 5552220. Is there a way to run a macro or write a formula that would compare the data between the two columns and either automatically delete the numbers that don't have a match or highlight them? For example:
Tab A Tab B 5551112 5551112 6660001 6660001 1234567 1234567 2222222 2222222 6666445
6666445 needs to be deleted in tab B because it's not present in tab A. There could be up to 100 numbers that require deletion from tab B.
I have 2 sets of data/array/range. Each set consists of 2 columns with a large number of rows.
I want to compare my 2nd data to a master data. And list if anything is different in 2nd set of data from master set in column A than highlight the difference or copy the value to another place.
Also want to compare the 2nd column if column A was same and consider both column A and column B for that associated row different if column B is different.
The trouble for me comes in because the list is never alphabetical (sort doesnt work cause of funky naming) and never of the same size.
Attached is a photo of an example for maybe an clearer understanding. Also attached an example excel sheet I tried it within excel but cant seem to figure out how to look also for the 2nd column, so im trying to avoid the within excel route and go using vba ...
I attempted it with a very basic code thats not working =/ just cant seem to figure how to code to get the desired result
VB: Sub matchdiff() Dim cell As Range Dim found As Range
I have 2 worksheets in 2 spreadsheets 1 & 2. I would like to compare columns A & G in 2 to 1. If columns A & G in worksheet 2 matched worksheet 1, then it will fill in columns B, C, D, and AL automatically.
I'm having difficulties using vlookup to compare two columns of TEXT data. My goal is find out how many of items in the "Eligible Serial Numbers" list have been ordered for destruction. The items listed for destruction are listed in the "Serial Numbers (destroyed).
Whenever I put in a VLOOKUP, I get a serial number that doesn't make sense to me. For example, if I want to find out if "362351581" from the Eligible List appears on the destroyed list. What do you suggest?
Destroyed? (i.e. Vlookup formula in this column) Eligible Serial Numbers Serial Numbers (destroyed) 362351581 362351581
I'm using the code below to compare columns on two sheets (1 column for each) and where there is a match, copy data from the 'Source' to 'Destination' sheet.
The code works fine, but I'd like to amend this, but I'm a little unsure about how to proceed.
The script currently compares column C on the 'Source' sheet with column D on the 'Destination' sheet and where a match is found copy column G from the 'Source' sheet and pastes this to column O on the 'Destination' sheet.
I'd still like to copy and paste the same columns, but I'd like to compare two columns from each sheet, so from the 'Source' sheet compare columns C and E to columns D and J on the 'Destination' sheet.
I have two columns of adjacent data Call them A & B (although this could differ)
If the data in the second colum is not equal to, blank cell or contains the words "CAT", "DOG" or "ELEPHANT" then the content of the cell in the second column should REPLACE the content of the adjacent cell in column A (in this example) leaving B blank, otherwise column B remains unchanged.
