Compare Two Columns In Different Worksheets And Create Message Listing Missing Data?

Apr 19, 2013

I'm sure this query has been answered somewhere else but I can't seem to find it. I basically have information in two worksheets in the same workbook which need to be compared and the missing values from one worksheet need to be listed in a message. There are duplicate values in both worksheets so only need a list of the unique missing values. For example:

Sheet1
Column A
1
2
1
5
5
2
3
5
4

Sheet2
Column A
2
3
3
4
3
4

The message box should state that we are missing 1 and 5 from the dataset as it is not in Sheet2. If the list could be sorted in ascending order that would be great too.

Compare Strings In Two Workbooks

Jan 11, 2007

I have a workbook called Keyword that has two columns c,and d, of words.

The length of the columns can vary,because I add words to them.

I also have a workbook called testfile, and cell B1 has a word in it.

Testfile also has an .xla module that adds in when testfile is open.

I want to type a function called asset in cell C1 of Testfile,and have
it compare each word in Keyword workbook to the word that's in cell B1
of testfile. If a match is found in column C of Keyword, the function
returns the letter C. If match is found in col D of Keyword, it returns
the letter D. If no match, function returns "no match".

I have both workbooks open and the vba code I stuck at the bottom of
the .xla module as another function.

Here's my code so far.

Function asset(Description As Variant) As String 'arg. is the word in cell B1 in testfile

Dim LastRowOfC As Integer, LastRowOfD As Integer
Dim i As Integer

Compare And Show Changes Between Two Workbooks

Jun 16, 2012

Comparing two workbooks. At first the workbooks were quite stable and didn't have no new entries or deletion of old entries so I initially used vlookup to give me what I needed and later found some basic VBA on the internet which did what I required quicker.

The workbooks have now changed slightly where each month new deliverables are added and old ones are deleted. This results in the entries of the two workbooks not aligning in the same rows/cells therefore when I run the vba it highlights 90% of the workbook as its just comparing cells against each other.

Each entry within the workbook has a unique identification number so I can still use VLookup for these however this doesn't allow me to see the new deliverables which have been added of the old deliverables deleted.

Compare Worksheets From Two Workbooks

Dec 21, 2009

I have a master tracking document that I use to record project information. My client sends me an updated schedule each week which may (or may not) have additional stores on it and some of the details of the stores may have changed.

I need a macro to capture these changes from the source spreadsheet (the one the client sends) and update the master tracker. The master tracker has a lot of additional columns of data that I add in myself about each project so I don't want to lose this information. The macro needs to see if the store on the source sheet is already on the master tracker and if it is then it needs to check to see if any of the columns below have changed.

If the store isn't on the master tracker then it needs to be added. There are around 750 stores on the master tracker at the moment so to do it manually takes forever!

Master Spreadsheet

Column A - Retail Region
Column B - Project Name
Column C - Postcode
Column D - Net Selling Area
Column E - Project Manager
Column F - Contractor
Column I - Start On Site
Column J - Launch Date


Source Spreadsheet

Column C - Retail Region
Column D - Project Name
Column I - Postcode
Column J - Net Selling Area
Column M - Project Manager
Column N - Contractor
Column P - Start On Site
Column Q - Launch Date

Compare Two Different Workbooks To Populate Values?

Dec 26, 2013

I have workbook 1 and workbook 2.

I need to lookup the value in workbook 2 in order to populate workbook 1.

If workbook 2 value = NA, then "" in Workbook 1

If Workbook 2 value > workbook 1 value, then Workbook 1 value

If workbook 2 < workbook 1, then Workbook 2 value.

Should be simple. Keep getting errors in formulas @if or @lookup.

It would be nice to know by worksheet within same workbook as well.

Compare And Copy Details Between 2 Workbooks

Dec 17, 2009

1. To compare two workbooks with exactly the same columns- Target and Source
2. The target workbook basically has more row items than the source since this is considered the masterlist.
3. The source worksheet's names and contact details are filled out by different sources but will still maintain the same columns.
4. The records of the source workbook must be transferred to the Target workbook reference to its appropriate IDs.
5. The record of source book may be updated and will be fed to the Target book but must not copy the record that is already present in the masterlist.

Below is the code I was working at


Public Sub CopyRecord()
Dim sRng As Range
Dim tRng As Range
Dim sCell As Range
Dim tCell As Range
Dim tLR As Long
Dim sLR As Long
Dim sCount As Long


'Find last row of target sheet
Workbooks(Target).Sheets("Sheet1").Activate
tLR = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count

'Find last row of source sheet
Workbooks(Source).Sheets("Sheet1").Activate
sLR = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count..........

Compare Two Workbooks And Copy Matching Row

Jul 23, 2013

I have two open workbooks, the first is called "Original Data.xls", the second "SIP.xls".The "Original Data" workbook contains a sheet called "Data" which has a list of information in the column range 'B:H', starting at row '4'.The "SIP" workbook contains a sheet called "Staff" which has a list of unique ID's in column B, starting at row 4.What I'd like to be able to do is compare the unique ID's in column 'B' of the "Data" sheet to that of the unique ID's in column B of the "Staff" sheet. NB.

There could be multiple records for the same unique ID in the "Data" sheet, but they will only occur once in the "Staff" sheet.If a match is found, I'd like to copy the row from the "Data" sheet and paste this to a sheet called "Matched", starting in B4, also contained in the "Original Data.xls" file.As each match is found I'd like to paste this into the next available line on the "Matched" sheet, and I would like, if at all possible, for the macro to continue checking for multiple entries until column 'B' in the "Data" sheet is blank.

Compare Workbooks And Extract Data

Jul 3, 2007

I have 2 workbooks containg about 600 names and the serial number of the computer they are using. One I keep so I know who has what machine. The other is created automatically by a service we subscribe to.
This workbook is loaded with errors. Machine costs being charged to the wrong people.

They both contain last name, first name and serial number. Although not in the same columns. With formulas, I have been able to take the serial number from the service.xls and find that serial number in the inventory.xls.

The ultimate goal is this:
Take serial number from service.xls and compare it to inventoryxls.
If it exist, put the first and last name of the user from inventory.xls onto the service.xls sheet.
If it does not exist, then put "does not exist"

Compare Data From 3 Workbooks Against 2 Files

Feb 15, 2010

For the past several days I have been attempting to write a macro, which in theory would check the values within a one- sheet workbook (we’ll call it run_list.xls) against the values in two different workbooks (we’ll call these production.xls, development.xls). However after several days I am nowhere closer to solving this problem then I was when I started. I’ve tried different scripts and variations of vlookup, but I have been unsuccessful in tailoring what I have found to meet my needs. So I feel it is time to lie down and scream for a medic.

Here’s some background on the workbooks. The sheets in all three workbooks are set up in the same manner. Cell “A1” contains time/ date, cell “A2” contains a lot#, cells “A3:A99” contain positioning data, and cells “B3:B99” contain serial numbers associated with tubes in the specific positions. The only differences between the workbooks are the sheets in production.xls and development.xls are labeled according to their specific lot number.

What I have been trying to do is to take a value from cell "B3"in run_list.xls and find where that value occurs in column B either of workbooks. When that value was found I wanted to copy cell "A2" from its sheet and paste that value in cell "D3" of run_list.xls. I had also wanted to repeat that those steps for every cell in column B containing a serial #. If a serial number was not found I wanted it to report “Not Found”. There are also times when instead of a serial number a phrase “No Trakmate” is listed. In these cases I had intended to skip these lines.

Also, since production.xls, development.xls are updated frequently their names are also updated with new version numbers ie. Production_v10.xls I had intended to allow the user to choose what files to search in but was unable to figure out how to add a second location.

Compare Sheets In 2 Different Workbooks And Note Changes

May 21, 2006

I've attached two separate workbooks that have indentical sheets in each. One workbook is a 2 day later update of the first. I'm trying to develop VBA code that will open both workbooks uses column B (work order #) as the unique identifier for each like sheet (which represent a month) and compares all other columns for that unique indentifier. Then I need to generate 3rd workbook that is identical in format (has a sheet for each month) and content to the two source ones but shows the unique identifier and any changes:

Column A (due date)
Column d (order quantity)

Also,if in the newer workbook(5_12_06) there exist a unique indentifier (work order #) that was not in the older workbook(5_10_06) and the same if there exits a unique indentifier in the older workbook that was removed in the newer workbook.

Compare And Merge Data From Two Different Workbooks

Apr 4, 2007

I'm sure that there is an excel function that can do this but darned if I can figure out which one it is. This is what I would like to do: I have two different workbooks. Each workbook has one worksheet that has two columns of data. The first column is a part number and the second column is a price. The first workbook holds my master data. Starting at the first column of the first row on the second workbook I wish to compare the part number held in that cell with the part numbers held in the first column of the first workbook. If there is a match then I want to take the associated price from the second workbook and place it in a cell to the right of the corresponding part number in the first book - actually in the first open cell in the third column. I wish to do this automatically via macro, or otherwise, for all part numbers in the second workbook. The macro will also need to recognize that some part numbers in the second workbook may not appear in the first workbook in which case that part number is skipped.

The end product is my first workbook that has been transformed from two columns of data to three columns of data - one part number and two price points although not all part numbers will have the two price points. If it helps I can copy the data in the second workbook and paste it in to a second worksheet in the first workbook and do all the work in the one workbook.

I have two workbooks, one is reference (W1), other is the one that needs update(W2). I need macro that compares reference column in W1 with targeting column in W2, then for match cells update two or more cells in same with new data from reference cells in W1, and for end to report what data in W1 in reference column wasnt find in W2. I tend to use macro in reference book W1, and to update book W2 without opening, so I need this macro to work just with file manager from excel . No need for user modul for targeting columns, they are static in both woorkbooks. In practise in W1 is invoice prices with part numbers, at other one is the same, but with prices for distribution (with formulas), I want ti automaticly refresh part numbers with new prices, an to have report what part numbers are not in price list (W2)

Insert Row For Missing Number In List

Dec 19, 2011

We recently bought some new software at work, and I'm having trouble formatting the exported data in a way that will work with existing reports. The attached file is what the data looks like after being exported. Basically, what I'm trying to do is insert rows for the missing numbers -- i.e., each name should be followed by rows numbered 1 through 10.

John Smith John Smith
1 1
4 2
8 3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10

My ultimate end goal is to have columns of data for each name, instead of rows:

John Smith 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

I've created a formula that can do that part, but it operates on the assumption that each name will be followed by a set number of rows.

What little I know about vba I've learned on my own, so I may just be missing something obvious.

Formula To Compare Data On 2 Workbooks And Highlight Changes On Third Worksheet

Dec 11, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with two worksheets (sheet 1 and 2). Sheet 1 has all the current employee data on it e.g. employee number, Forename, Surname, Address, Pay rate, etc. Sheet 2 was last month's employee data in the same format. I want to compare the two worksheets on worksheet 3 and highlight any changes or just put the changes on worksheet 3 (this would be better).

The problem is employees might be on different rows on each worksheet and some employees might not be on one spreadsheet due to staff leaving and starting.

Each staff member has a unique employee number to identify them. So I need a formula that matches the employee number and then looks in the cells in sheet 1 and 2 and if different puts the value in sheet 1 into the cell in sheet 3.

Compare Two Ranges In Different Workbooks And Copy Data To A 3rd Workbook

Jul 30, 2004

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 .
