Compare & Show Differences
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......

Compare 2 Columns & Show Differences
So I have two worksheets: W1 and W2.
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.
Compare Rows For Differences
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.
Compare Worksheets And Mark Differences
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.
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
.CompareMode = vbTextCompare
For i = 2 To UBound(a, 1)
z = "": zz = ""
For ii = 1 To UBound(a, 2)
z = z & ";" & a(i, ii)
zz = a(i, 5) & ";" & a(i, 6)
.Item(z) = i: .Item(zz) = i
Compare Two Spreadsheets And Return Differences
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.
Compare Or Isolate Differences Between Spreadsheets
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.
Compare 2 Dates For Month Differences
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?
Compare Two Worksheets And Display Differences
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.
Compare Lists Flag Differences
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
data_sheet = "Sheet1"
target_sheet = "sheet2"
rowcn = 2
If Sheets(data_sheet). Cells(rowcn, 1) <> Sheets(target_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 1) Then
Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 3
rowcn = rowcn + 1
Loop While Sheets(data_sheet).Cells(rowcn, 1) > 0
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.
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.
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
Compare Columns & List Differences
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
Compare 2 Worksheets & Update Differences
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.
I am attaching a small example of of the sheets.
Compare Sheets & Output Differences
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).
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. Can´t 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 Cells In Different Workbooks & Highlight Differences
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?
Compare 2 Sheets For Row Differences & Copy
How can I compare two sheets for row differences? Example:
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
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?
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.
Web Query: Compare Columns & Date Time Stamp Differences
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 .
Compare List To 2 Others & List Differences
When we buy company 1 we need to import all of the products into our product database, however many of them are already the same. Each product has a manufacture code, and a supplier code. Company 1 uses 1 code for each product but it could be either a supplier or manufacture code - they don't use a consistent standard.
My company has a list of all supplier codes and manufacture codes for each product.
I need excel to compare the 2 companies lists and check if any of the products in their list are in my company's lists. I need excel to make a new list of any products from company 1 that are not already in the company 2 product list. The products that are not already in my list will need to be looked at manually, and so need to be easily identifiable after the matching (ie in their own list or the ability to copy into a new list.

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:

I have two colums with 1000 rows for column 1 and 500 for column 2 that shows gps coordinates. I want to work out the distances between the gps coordinates but want the answer only if it is less than 30 kilometres.The formulae must do the following
a1-b1 and compare the answer to a1-(b2:b1000) and give me the smalles answer in column c.
I want the closest gps coordinate to A1. Even if i do vlookup first there might still be a closer gps coordinate in row 501 than just subtracting A1-B1
Dates And Differences Between
I have a list of 109 dates in one worksheet (call it A) and in another worksheet I have a list of other dates (call it B). I need list B to compare itself to list A and find the closest date in list A and then subtract the difference between the two.
1. I need to find the average monthly meter reading say for the whole year...this is what I have, =(C2-B2)+(D2-C2)+(E2-D2)+(F2-E2)+(G2-F2)+(H2-G2)/6 is there an easy way to do this?
2. Also need to get the total monthly reading of all the machine, the formula I have is; =C2-B2+C3-B3+C4-B4+C5-B5+C6-B6
1 Count For Differences In Lists
I'm looking to compare a number of duplicate lists to an original. If a duplicate list contains 1 or more different values to the original, I want to return a value of 1. For example:
Count = 1
Count = 1
I'd then like to sum the counts. Ideally this would all take place in the one formula, but I can split them into different cells if necessary. I can't use macros for this.
Matches And Differences Between Two Lists
I am trying to compare matches and differences in two lists in order to pull statistics from them.
I have a production schedule I make at the start of the week (list 1) and compare that to what I actually ran at the end of the week (list 2). I would like to produce the following from these two lists;
- a list (list 3) that shows all the orders I didn't run in my original schedule
- a way of summing the number of matches (of work order #s) in the two lists (list 1 and list 2)
- and way of extracting the corresponding machine hours I did / did not run from the two lists
I have provided text boxes on the attached excel file to better explain my problem.
Searching For Differences Between Columns
I've got a spreadsheet which lists reference numbers and a value of each one on for two different weeks which looks like this (please ignore the ....'s - I was trying to illustrate the colums clearly but the spaces seem to get removed when I post this)
ref(week 1):...........Value (week 1):......ref (week 2):....Value (week 2):
What I want to do is compare the value for week 1 and week 2 for each reference number. The problem is that not all the reference numbers for week 1 will be in week 2, and not all the reference numbers in week 2 will have appeared in week 1. I would like to know if there's a way that excel can identify a specific reference number, search for the values for this in week one and week two, and display any differences between these, (e.g. on the above spreadsheet I would like to identify that ref 123456 appears in both weeks and that the balance is the same, reference 147258 appears in both but the value is different, and that reference 113456 & reference 978645 do not appear in both weeks).
Average Of Time Differences
I need get an average call time. I have column C that is the time call started and column D is time call ended. What would I need to get the average call time for the entire sheet? I'll attach a copy of my spreadsheet for you to look at.
Compass Direction Differences
I'm trying to do is take the difference of two wind directions but need the actual difference not the true mathematical difference. For example:
Wind direction 350 was forecasted
Wind direction 020 was observed
The difference is 030 degrees off not 330 degrees.
How do I do a formula to state the true difference not numeric?
I was figuring these conditions:
- if the number is above 180 & below 360 just subtract 180
- if the number is below 180 & above 0 just add 180
Using w/ example:
170-200=-030 (then take ABS to get 030)
I'm a weather professional and doing tons of metrics regarding weather parameters.
Compare, Truncate, Compare Again, Write (VBA)
I have two ranges of numbers stored as text on two different sheets.
The first one is from product code and the second is from product category.
The problem is both ranges are of different lengths and I have to find out if a product from the right is part of a particular product category. Even if the length is different the first digits are indicative of the belonging of a code. For example 1234 and 12345 are “family”-their first 4 digits match.
Just to give you an example of what is desired:
So, the loop should do the following:Compare the first string from the “Category” column to each and every entry on the right, if a match exists (we have no match here for 2200) write “ok” next to it.
Next trim one digit from the right from every string in the “Code” column.
Compare same first string from the “Category” column to each trimmed string from “Code” column (here we should have a match 2200=2200)
Write “ok” next to it
Now the loop goes to the second string from “Category” column and for this one we will have to trim 2 digits from the right of each string in “Code” column to achieve the result (2323=2323) and so on.
Calculate Differences At Set Time
I have data changes regularly (Say like tank level and we wil asume that at time 2:00 AM is the base , no matter what is the value) and I want to recored the that change every two minutes along with the time as list.

Counting Unique Differences Between Two Worksheets
this counts the number of entries on sheet Apr08WFA when value in range F1 to F4000 is either apr2008 (cellB6) or mar2008 (cellB7).
this works in principle but does not catch all.
I want to amend the formula to catch new entries appearing on a sheet called May08WFA that were not on Apr08WFA but with the same condition of "zz".
So data on May08WFA will be compared against Apr08WFA and new entries counted.
Calculating Date AND Time Differences
Within 4 columns, I have a series of:
Start Dates / Start Times / End Dates / End Times
I need to create a formula which will give me the sum total of the difference between the data sets.
For example, the time difference between 8am on the 20th March and 1pm on the 21st March is 29 hours OR 1 day and 5 hours.
I need a formula which will calculate this for me.

Differences & Incompatibilities Across Versions
I may be creating a small Excel-based VBA application for a client on a semi-formal basis. I personally use Windows XP with Office XP installed, but I'm concerned about the possibility of serious differences between versions of Windows and Excel that may cause my code to fail on other machines.
I don't think I need to cater to any version of Excel BEFORE that in Office XP, but I probably do need to cater for versions after it. That's Office 2003, Office 2007 and Office for Vista,
Find Differences Of 0.06 & Fill Color Them
I have columns of black data that I manually go through and find regions that have cells with values that are 0.06 or more different.
I then turn these regions into blue colored regions.
Is there any way you can design a macro that goes through the spreadsheet and FILL COLOR YELLOWs a cell who is 0.06 or more less then the next cell down?
This would be so much easier on my eyes, since I usually have 80 columns and 1500 rows of data.
The blue coloring I still have to do manually because my human instinct is sometimes important there.
I would be using the FILL COLOR YELLOW cells as quick markers for my regions of interest.
Multi Value Lookup With Tolerance For Rounding Differences
a lookup and match of two values.
For example, in Sheet1 I have a unique transaction reference number and a £ value.
eg. 60231568 £38.05
In the next sheet (Sheet 2), I have a summary of data, and I need to return the company name...
60231568 £38.04 Company X
60231568 £15.12 Company Y
60231568 £10.11 Company Z
60245871 £105.11 Company Q
The look up needs to match trans no, amount (within 3 pence threshold) and return in this example company X.
Date Differences In Days, Weeks Or Months
I've been racking my brain on this one for awhile, and I feel like I'm going the right direction but...
I have a list of dates like:
...and I need to determine if the difference between them is daily, weekly, or monthly. There are 79 of these lists, on 79 different sheets so I can't visually peg them as daily, weekly, or monthly.
The way I have been looking at the problem is to calculate the number of months between the last & first dates and see if the resulting answer (+1) matches the number of actual dates, and so on...

Indicator Variables And Calculating Differences Between Numbers In A List
I got three columns. The left one is the day number. The middle column is for indicator variables 1 or 0. This is suppose to be chosen by the solver function. I want the third column to show the DIFFERENCE between the "chosen" days. This can be better explained through an example:.......
(extra information: the indicator values are chosen by solver based on several criteria not stated here, but this particular part of the sheet is suppose to refrain the chosen days to have differences between them larger or smaller than a given value.
