Compare More Than Two Columns With Names

Mar 6, 2014

I want to compare many columns and find duplication in the last one;


Column A Column B Column C Column D Column E
1234 1234 1 A OK
1235 1235 1 A OK
1236 1236 3 A OK
1237 1236 0 A OK
1238 1236 1 B Duplication found in different column
1239 1238 0 A OK

To get Column "C" which is calculate how many numbers in that row are repeated with respect to Column "B", I solve it by using : =COUNTIF(B:B,A2) ;

But I want to get a result of duplication in "Column E" by see if "Column B" + "Column D" has the same value regardless of number then say "OK", but if it is not than the before, then write "Duplication found in different column".

Match Names And Compare Dates?

Mar 19, 2014

I've been trying for a few time to make a sub, on VBA, that writes, in a specific column, " " or 1 depending on the date that is inserted. The thing I can't quite do is:

1 - I have a sheet where the different projects of a company are stored (name, starting date, ending date and person responsible) and where new projects can be added from a UserForm

2 - I also have another sheet were costs from the projects are stored (one line with cost 1 from project 1, another with cost 2 also from project 1 and cost 3 from project 2, etc) and where I can also add a new cost with another UserForm (this cost as also a date that is added, to when it happened)

3 - What I need to do is, on the costs' sheet I need to create a sub that in the last column adds me 1 if the date of the cost added is not a date between the starting and ending date of the project that it corresponds.

Compare Last Names And Dates Of Birth From Two Spreadsheets

Feb 5, 2009

I have several old spreadsheets that contain patient information. Except for names, dates of birth, and dates of surgery there is nothing consistent about them. Not only that, the old spreadsheets were in various stages of compiliation and recompilation when they were abandoned. So now there are multiple duplications of old names added to lists of new names spread across multiple spreadsheets. I have to identify names that are not already in my database and add them.

I have a formula that I found on the internet that I can use to check if a patientís last name in an old spreadsheet is one that already appears in my main database. In my attached example the formula looks like this:

Single Column With Multiple Rows Of Data - Compare Names

Apr 12, 2012

I have a single column with multiple rows of data like this: Afirst last, Bfirst last, Cfirst last (all in one cell) etc.

I want to type some names in one cell in the same format (Afirst last, Cfirst last, Bfirst last) but not order and then check if any of those names exist in the first column and count the results of matches.

So in this example I am looking to count Bfirst last and/or Cfirst last in every cell of column A. I need to use a formula.

Counting Formula (compare Values In 2 Separate Columns To See How Many Times The Same Value Appears In Both Columns)

Oct 13, 2008

I'm trying to compare values in 2 separate columns to see how many times the same value appears in both columns. Ideally I would be able to insert a range function to compare the values in the column "ID 1" against the values in column "ID 2" and return the count of times that a value appears in both columns. For example 2122, 1112 and 1718 appear in both columns and I would like the formula to return a count of 3.

ID 1ID 2

In my actual project I'm comparing 2 columns in the same worksheet. The column are column B with data in cells B2:B10266 against column C with data in cells C2:C18560.

Compare Across Multiple Columns

Mar 3, 2009

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

Vlookup - Compare Two Columns

Oct 26, 2009

I need a Vlookup to look at two columns when searching. here is an example:

Sheet 1 is my report grid to hand out to the employees, A1 has a drop-down list with my employees names and A2 one for the month, when you click an employee name the vlookup formula fills in the information from sheet 2 (data sheet).

Sheet 2 has data like: Col 1= Month, col 2=employee L-name, col 3= production etc...

currently the vlookup formula messes up because the employee name is in there multiple times because of the months column, i have to delete all months except the one i need. formula is: =vlookup(A1,'sheet2'!,B:C,2,false)

this formula will pull the data in sheet two column 3 (production) for the employee that matches.

how can i make it compare first to col 1 (month) and then col 2 (employee).

Compare Columns Between Two Sheets

Apr 30, 2009

The code below compares values on sheet 4 column A to sheet 3 column A and then colors a cell "Green" (Temporary), later I will place data from sheet 4 into sheet 3.

I dont know why but when it finds data on sheet 4 that is not 100% numeric it errors out.

Run-time error '91'
Object variable or With block variable not set.

The data in sheet 4 column A is primarily numeric, there are and always will be some numeric/alpha strings.
I can change the value of sheet 4 A2 to "123x" from "123" and the code stops as described. Leaving sheet 4 A1 as 100% numeric, which works fine.
