# Compare Values Between 2 Lists

Nov 26, 2007

how to compare the value in one cell on sheet "Block #1" to a list of values on sheet "Data". Specifically I want to be able to look at the value in a cell (which will be a date) and then compare it to a list of company holidays on another sheet in the workbook and if the date is a company holiday it will display the word "Holiday" in another cell I specify on "Block #1" I am doing this to automate generation of a calendar which will have 13 worksheets one for each of 13 4-week blocks. I can get the calendars generated, but can't seem to be able to get it to compare the values of each date to the list of holidays.

## Compare Two Lists

Jun 9, 2009

I have two separate lists, one in Column A and the other in Column B. Both lists are roughly 2,000 rows long. For the most part, the two lists are identical, but not quite.

I'm trying to determine what data is present in Column A that is absent from Column B, and vice versa. That's easy enough to do with COUNTIF (at least that's what I've tried), but to complicate matters, duplicate entries appear in both column A and column B.

For example, in column A, the word "Electric" appears 13 times...but in column B, it only appears 8. I need to know these differences in a quick and easily readable way (remember, the spreadsheet is roughly 2,000 rows).

## Compare 2 Lists - 6 Columns

Mar 20, 2012

I need to compare 2 lists (each list has 3 columns [first name, last name and email address).

I am trying to compare columns A(incl. First name), B(incl. Last name) and C(incl. email address) to columns D, E and F.

D, E, and F are also First name, Last name and e-mail address respectively.

I need to compare A, B, and C to D, E, and F and find duplicates and highlight them.

## Compare Innventory Lists

Jan 9, 2009

Every Monday, our database sends me a list in excel, with a snapshot of our inventory.

Here is (simplified) how it looks like

part#, desc, color, units
001 Camry Black 13
003 Toyota Green 2
009 Honda Yellow 17

and so on for about 8k rows.

Every Monday, the list is different. we sold some items, so the "units" in stock are less, we run out of some items, so that part# is not in the list,
we acquired some new items, with a different part#, and new amount of units, some part#s have more units in stock.

I need to send to our boss, a spreadsheet with a list of all part#s in stock every Monday, and the last 4 weeks, how many we sold of each in the last 7 days, so we can try to get rid of inventory that is getting obsolete.

It would be easy to do, if not for the fact of the "new" items that come in, and the items that we run out of, and are not in the list anymore. With 8k items, to to the corrections by hand, it gets old very quickly

## Compare 2 Lists & Return Details

## Compare Lists Flag Differences

Jan 9, 2007

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.

## Compare Lists & Highlight Duplicates

Jul 3, 2007

I receive a daily spreadsheet which contains (amongst other information) a column of postcodes. I'd like to run a macro which compares these postcodes with a list of other postcodes, and then to colour highlight each instance of that post code in the daily spreadhseet.

I have been able to find and modify a macro but that searches for one post code at a time and then adds a comments box to the cell.

Instead of copying that piece of code and editing it for the several hundred post codes I need to "look up" against, I'd like to know how to create a list of post codes in the macro, so that the macro searches the first post code in the lookup list, finds and highlights each cell instance, then moves onto the next post code in the lookup list, until the end of the lookup list. I would like this as the editing of the lookup list would be much easier than editing paragraphs of code.

## How To Compare And Combine Data From New And Old Product Lists

Mar 19, 2014

I have two spreadsheets full of products one of new products and the other of old products. I want to filter out the old ones that are discontinued but keep the ones that are still there. The old list has data I want to preserve for the new listings that would be duplicates from the old ones. I want to delete the new listings that already exist in the old list. I'm not sure exactly how to do it. I tried to delete dups based on product id or name but I'm afraid it's deleting entries I want to keep. Both lists contain over 5000 products each. I need to compare two lists and filter out the old products then work on removing the dupes.

## Compare Two Email Lists And Output Non-matching

Nov 20, 2008

I have two email lists. For example they are:

List 1:

a@spam.com
b@spam.com
c@spam.com

List 2:

abcdef@spam.com
b@spam.com
c@spam.com

In list 1 the non-matching address is a@spam.com. namely it is not common to both lists. I want to automatically go through the lists and output firstly a new list of the non-matches from column 1 and also a new list of the non-common items from list two.

So in this case the result would be that somewhere there is a new list from list 1 that has "a@spam.com" and secondly there is a new list from list 2 that has "abcdef@spam.com."

Obvioulsy the real list is more complicated and longer but the principle will be the same.

03/25/2013 106 \$844.76

Expected result:

Un-Matched List:
03/03/2013 101 \$1,045.25
03/06/2013 103 \$456.31
03/15/2013 105 \$2,456.12

## Compare Two Lists & Save Duplicates To New Sheet

Jan 11, 2008

The Master list:
Sheet1, Column C has unique numbers, i.e, 0608-211-1093-2.

(can have thousands of entries)

The Comparison list:
Sheet2, Column C will have duplicates of some of Sheet1, Column C numbers.

(Sheet2, Column C will have the numbers but other columns will have different
data than Sheet1 and may have a few hundred entries or less)

I need a macro that will that will compare the two sheets for duplicates based on
Column C and then write the entire row of Sheet1 with the duplicate number to a new Sheet3.

## Compare Number Lists On Different Sheets And Delete Duplicates

Mar 26, 2011

Need to find a column of numbers from one worksheet and delete them from another.

Example
To be deleted is below:
83221
83223
83232
83233
83236
to be deleted from is below:
83221
83223
83226
83227
83228
83229
83230
83232
83233
83234
83235
83236

Another issues is that the worksheet that needs to have the numbers deleted from has 3 columns total so the whole row would need deleting, or if its easier I could replace the numbers with 0 and then sort and delete.

## Macro To Compare 2 Lists Based On Multiple Criteria Using SUMPRODUCT?

Feb 27, 2014

I want to compare 2 lists in separate sheets based on multiple criteria and delete the duplicates

Sheet 1 - new list in column A:E
Sheet 2 - old list in columns B:F

So here is what I need: the macro should generate single IDs made of Sheet 1 Ai,Bi,Ci,Di,Ei cells for each row i to the end of the list + generate single IDs made of Sheet 2 Bi,Ci,Di,Fi

If . Evaluate (Sumproduct (IDs made of Ai,Bi,Ci,Di,Ei from sheet1) & Sumproduct IDs made of Bi,Ci,Di,Ei,Fi from sheet2) >1 then delete the entire row in Sheet 2.

This will leave me with only updated items (rows) in Sheet 2

## Compare 2 Lists In Different Sheets Then Copy And Paste Related Cell Onto First Sheet

May 4, 2006

What I am trying to do here is to compare 2 lists in 2 different files, and when there is a match, then copy and paste the related cells of the matching name. Sorry if this sounds messy, perhaps the sample file I have attached can explain better.

Every month I get a new file in the format of “Data Source” sheet where the list of banks in column A and the figures in column M, AA and AB might change from month to month. For the sake of convenience, I put the source data as a different sheet instead of different file here.

I have an existing report template in the format of “Final report” sheet where basically I copy and paste the relevant cells according to the name of the banks.

I don’t think I can use Vlookup because the cells that I want to extract are not right beside the search criteria. If I’m wrong please correct me.

Anyway, assuming a macro is needed for this, I am wondering if I can create a macro, where it can search the list of banks in column A in “Data Source” sheet based on the list in column A in “Final Report” sheet, then copy the correct cells from column M, AA and AB and then paste them into the correct cells in columns B, E and H in “Final Report” worksheet?

Note that not all the banks in the “Final Report” sheet are in the “Data Source”, so for this example, row 4 for ABN Bank should remain blank after the search because it is not listed in the “Data Source”. The Data Source List might also change over time.

There is also this problem of the bank names from the “Data Source” sheet not being exactly the same as the existing list in “Final Report”. For example in this file, ANZ Bank in the other sheet have all the extra stuff behind, but we know it is the same bank.

## Compare Values Based On Multiple Reference Values?

Sep 25, 2013

In sheet1, I have the borrowers and outstanding per employee. In the Area Avg sheet, I have the average borrowers and outstanding in each area as this is the standard for comparison (I got this through the subtotal function).

Now what I have to do is in sheet1, format(change the color) each cell under borrowers which is greater than the average of the relevant area. Since, (in my actual data) the name of the area may be duplicate in different regions, the reference value (average borrowers of the area) from "Area Avg" sheet has to be traced through multiple criteria which are: Division, Region and Area. The same also has to be done for outstanding but the solution can be provided for borrowers only.
