Compare If Multiple Cells Are Equal

I need to compare the data in three fields and if the same ignore but if different then add them with a space and a hyphen.

I use this formula for 2 fields and it works great I just can't get it to work with three.

=IF(TRIM(Data!BC2)=TRIM(Data!AY2),TRIM(Data!BC2),TRIM(Data!BC2)&" - "&TRIM(Data!AY2))

I use the trim command as the users entering data often add unnecessary spaces etc. and it combines the data even when the same.

Multiple Variables To Equal Constant
I'm trying to create a spreadsheet that will tell the user how much of two products to use in order to get a desired percentage of total fat. For example: if the total pounds is to be 3000 at a fat percentage of 30%. There would be two products (a lean meat and high fat meat). The percentage of fat in those two meats will change each time. The user will enter those percentages and then the formula needs to tell how many lbs of each to use in order to get the desired percentage of fat.

Each time there is a "target" amount of each product to use. For example: 1000 lbs of Lean Meant and 2000 lbs of Fat meat. Those are based on the ideal levels of fat in each.

However, sometimes the fat is not at the ideal so the formula has to be adjusted in order to compensate.

Deleting Rows NOT EQUAL To Multiple Criterion
I have a spreadsheet with several thousand lines on it and I only want certain rows from it. Unfortunately I cannot use a sort as I have to keep groups of data in the same order (the line count in between the data that I need left behind isn't always the same so I can't go that route either). I was hoping there was some code to delete all rows other than those where the cell in column A contains either "NAME"; "Data1" or "Data 2".

I tried the code below but that didn't work.

Why Aren't These 2 Cells Equal
I have a date on one sheet, and what I thought was the same exact date on another sheet. I want to vlookup off the date, however the values aren't the same. i.e. when I check to see if they = I get a false. They're both formated the same, custom date m/d/yyyy h:mm, and when I ran the check to see if one was text (t=(A1)) I get confirmation that they are both non-text!

Values Which Are Equal Not Treated Equal
I'm having trouble with a small vba macro. At the end of the macro I test to see if two variables are equal and then print out true or false. However, for some reason even though the variables are equal vba is not treating them that way. I have put the values that represent the variables on a spreadsheet and used the if(x1=x2) formula and it says it is true, also, when I debug the macro and watch the values when it comes to test the logical expression the numbers are the same. I don't understand why vba does not say that the two variables are equal. I have attached a screenshot of the breakpoint where I double check the values are equal.

Compare Across Multiple Columns
I can find lots of ways to compare two lists with single columns, but I need a very basic guide to comparing multiple ones across two sets of data and then highlighting or extracting the unique records. I would prefer to keep the data in the existing columns for later sorting and other purposes.

I currently have the two datasets as two separate worksheets in an Excel 2003 file. The two datasets consist of the same three columns containing strings of text, but there is quite a difference in the number of rows. Dataset One is c. 3550 records, Dataset 2 is c. 1600. There are no duplicate records within each dataset, but there are duplications across the datasets and the records are in a different order, so it's not a matter of comparing Row 1 to Row 1 and so on. The data look a bit like this (semi-colons to show columns):

PM;Smith;Mary Anne
PM;Jones;Fred Henry
PD;Wilson;Peter John
PG;Green;William Laurence

I want to create a formula which will compare these 4 columns to make sure they are all the same. If they are all the same, then TRUE else FALSE. I could compare C1 to C2,C3&C4, then C2 to C3&C4, then C3 to C4 but I am thinking there must be an easier way to do this.

Compare 2 Sheets By Row With Multiple Values
I have attached an example to better explain. I have 2 sheets that I need to compare. The main comparison is the Account #. So You take the account number on the inputted info sheet and look for it on the invoice sheet. This is what it needs to do:

If account is on user inputted but not invoice the information gets put on the results sheet. If the account is in both compare the code values columns F:Q. The main issue I'm having here is that the value aren't always in the same spot. for example you could have "5C" for code 2 and "5J" for code 3 on the user inputted sheet but on the invoice sheet "5J" could be code 2 and "5C" could be code 3, with the quantities in their respective places. When placing information on the results sheet the job info should come off the user inputted sheet.

Compare Values From Cells To Shapes To Cells
In the attached excel file I have two macros that create hyperlinks:

1. BalloonToNumber - Creates hyperlinks from "Oval" shapes on sheet "Op60_1" to sheet1 (column D).

2. NumberToBalloon - Creates hyperlink scheme from sheet1 (column D) to sheet "Op60_1" "Oval" shapes.

In Q #1 my macro seems to skip some shapes on sheet "OP60_1" and I simply can not figure out why.

In Q #2 my macro creates hyperlinks to shapes that do not exist and hyperlinks to numbers that are not a "100%" match, IE: 182 and 82 would share the same hyperlink?

If you open the workbook and use the hyperlinks on sheet1 they will take you to sheet "Op60_1" and shape hyperlinks from sheet "Op60_1" take you to sheet1. On sheet "Op60_1" there are some red arrows indicating the shapes that get skipped when running the "BalloonToNumber" macro.
Shape color changes as the hyperlinks are selected from sheet1.....

Compare Values In Multiple Columns And Return A Result
I have a spreadsheet with three years worth of data for a property I manage. Each column has cost data for the year and the specific department/cost for that year as the row value.

I have a column between the years that calculates the percent of gross revenue for the specific department/cost.

I would like to find (or create) a formula that will compare the percentage (or specific cost) for the three years within the specific row and if the increase year over year over year exceeds a trigger value it returns something (check me out/true/false) whatever.

The cost items for the property are in the hundreds so I'm trying to come up with a way to quickly see what specific cost items are going up (or down) more rapidly then what would be considered normal.

Compare Various Cells
I want to do is create a function that will allow me to compare various cells. For instance, we have people scoring applications and I want to see if raters' ratings are within 10 points of each other. If raters differ by 10 points I want to print conf call on my spreadsheet (so I can schedule a conference call for raters to discuss the 10 point difference). If raters are within 10 points then I want to print "compute mean" (so I will generate a mean for each applicant).

I can get Excell to compare one rater against another (=IF(C3-C4>10,"conf call","calculate mean"), but I do not know how to make it compare all raters. For example, I have four raters and I want to be able to compare rater 1 to rater 2 and rater 1 to rater 3 and rater 1 to rater 4 and then rater 2 to rater 3 and rater 2 to rater 4; and lastly rater 3 to rater 4. Then if any rater dyad is different by 10 points I want to print our "conf call", but if there are no differences (by 10 points) then I want to print our "compute mean".

Compare Cells Which Appear The Same
I converted a very large PDF to Excel. I want to run a logical formula that will compare a mailing address and property address. My formula goes like this: =if(a1=b1,"yes","no"). However, when I run my formula I am getting False for every line even though I can plainly see the answer should be yes. My guess is that it has something to do with the formatting of the text inside the cells that I'm comparing but they seem to be formatted the same. The strange thing is that if I manually type the information and run the formula, it comes out fine. I have more than 37,000 lines of text so I cannot manually retype the whole thing.

Compare Text Between Cells
I've got a very big spreadsheet with over 40,000 lines.

A1 - Mediterranean Sea. -----
A2 - Mediterranean Ses. ----- 5.55%
A3 - Atlantic Ocean. ----- 100%

Basically, 'Atlantic Ocean' is 100% different from the cell above, but A2 has only one letter different (out of 18, including the space and the dot) compared with A1, so it's only 5.55% different.

This would help me find which cells that are supposed to have the same content, have errors and thus are slightly different.
