Comparing 2 Or More Columns And Returning A True Value

Feb 10, 2009

I'm quite new to array formulas in excel and was wondering whether or not I can advance on this formula:


The problem is I would like to compare the entire colums (or array) and return the number of 'TRUE' statements in the array as a value.


however, this returns all values as 'FALSE'

example of arrgument:

IF C5:C65535=customer then count how many cells in K5:K65536=completed

Comparing Two Columns Of Data And Returning Values That Do NOT Appear In Both

Apr 22, 2014

I have an attendance sheet that employees scan their badge number, and returns their name and time/date stamp using a simple VLOOKUP.

I want to create a report that compares the names in the attendance sheet against the all the names in the master sheet, and only returns the names that have not attended the training.

I have tried a few test formulas using COUNTIF function, but with no luck.

I have attached an example. Use the worksheet labeled April 2014 A (2nd shift)

Comparing Two Columns And Returning Number Of Cells In One Column With Higher Values?

Apr 8, 2014

I have two Columns C and E that have dollar amounts in them. I want to compare each row in those columns and then total the number in column C that are higher that column E.

So basically C6>E6, C7<E7, C8=E8,C9>E9 should return the result of 2. There are two instances where the price in C is higher than the price in E.

Jul 15, 2009

Sheet 1 :

Row 1 : 5.1 5.2 5.3
Row 2 : 1.1 1.2 1.3

Sheet 2
5.1 1.3 Formula
5.3 1.1
5.2 1.2

The above is an example of two sheets where in Column "C" i need the formula, if sheet1 A Row 1 = sheet2 A row 2 and sheet1 B Row 1 = sheet2 B row 2 then the value should be ture or false.

=IF(AND(a2=sheet1!a1,b2=sheet1!a2), "true", "false")

I'm getting the answer for this. But if i tried to compare all the three conditions in sheet 1 it is not working.

I used count If as below,


This is Not working. Please suggest the Correct formula.

Return True When Comparing Target To A Range In VB

Nov 12, 2003

Why doesn't the IS operator return True when comparing Target to a range in VB when they are indeed the same? Why do we have to keep backing in via rng.Address = Target.Address or Not Intersect() Is Nothing?

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
****If Target.Address = "$B$2" Then
********Application.StatusBar = "To Be"
********Application.StatusBar = "Not to be"
****End If
****'_____This fails_____
****If Target Is Range("A1") Then
********Application.StatusBar = "A1 sauce anyone?"
****'____But this works_____
****ElseIf Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1")) Is Nothing Then
********Application.StatusBar = "Alguien quiere salsa A1?"
****End If

End Sub

Again - this is just me wondering why... Am I missing something terribly obvious here?

(Edit) I am guessing it has to do with the Target argument for SelectionChange() coming in ByVal instead of ByRef, but not sure... (End Edit)

Comparing Data And Returning Changes

Feb 24, 2014

I would like compare data using a certain column to key off of and compare whether data has changed.

I have 5,000 rows and 26 columns. Cell C1 is CALLED PMNUM, cell I1 is called CHANGEDATE

I want to find all of the same PMNUMs (C2-C5000), look at the last change date (I2) (sorted in descending order), compare it to the previous change date (I2) and if anything has been changed in columns D2 through G2 and J2 through Z2 compared to the last time the data was reported, list the changes in in AA2.

Nesting OR, AND Within IF: Comparison Amongst Several Cells And Returning A 1 If True

Dec 24, 2008

I'm trying to do a comparison amongst several cells and returning a 1 if true. if D25 is blank or does not equal Yes, Mixed or SP3, and if both F25 and G25 are blank, the output the value 1. First try:

=IF(AND(D21="",D21<>"Mixed",F21="",G21=""),1,"") - This seems to ignore the Mixed and outputs a 1 even if D21=Mixed.

Second try:

=IF(AND(OR(D25<>"Yes",D25<>"Mixed",D25<>"SP3"),F25="",G25=""),1,"") - same as above, if D25=Mixed then value of the cell is 1.

Range A: {A56, B43, C98, D44}
Range B: {A33, G89, D44, K123, OB55}

the function would return D44. Is it possible at all with functions or do I need a macro?

If Statements: Non-numerical Characters Returning False When True

Jun 24, 2009

I have a formula in column A of the following sheet. The problem is that when the entry in cell H contains a letter as well as a number then the formula in column a returns 0.

Also if the value for false in the forumula is changed from 0 i.e to 1 or 2, then a value is returned in column A (this is shown in the red highlighted cells).


Does anyone have any idea why this is?

Comparing Values And Returning Info From Separate Cells

Sep 18, 2013

If I am working from cell (D16), I am looking for a formula to compare the value in 2 different cells (D8 and D12) to a value in a third cell (D14) and the one with the closest value without going over returns a seperate value from either (D7 or D11), But if both D8 and D12 are above the value of (D14) then the closest value would be the answer and return the answer from (D7 or D11).

Example: D7=Bob and D8=25
D11=John and D12= 40
D14= 45
D16 (answer cell) =John
D7=Bob and D8=46
D11=John and D12=48
D16 (answer cell) =Bob

Comparing Customer Names In Rows And Returning Text Data In Different Cells If Same

Jan 26, 2010

I've got a list of donor names, names listed multipled times in Column A, each row with different donation data. For instance:

Sheet 1

A1 - Mary Jones, B1- Internet Donation
A2 - Mary Jones, B2 - Silent Auction Purchase
A3 - Mary Jones, B3 - Event Ticket Purchase
A4 - Gary Jones, B4 - Foundation Grant
A5 - Gary Jones, B5 - Internet Donation
A6 - Sara Parker, B6 - Event Ticket Purchase

I want Excel to compare rows A1 and A2, and if the name has not changed, enter the donation data from Column B into another sheet that will just list that person's name once:

Sheet 2

A1 - Mary Jones, B1- Donation1, C1 -Donation2, D1 - Donation3
A2 - Gary Jones, B2 - Donation1, C2 - Donation2, D1 - Donation3 (which would return no value because there the name changes

Does this involve IF, MATCH or VLOOKUP formulas?

Comparing Two Columns

Jun 1, 2007

What I'm attempting to do is analyze data on spread sheet. I've attached an example. what I need to do is compare columns "E" and "I". But I have numerous means of comparing the data. I think I will need three different formulas which is okay and am unsure if VBA is better. For example: I compare "E2" and "I2"...ect:
1) I would need to compare complete cell
2) I would need to compare the first three digits
3) I would need to compare the middle digits
If you towards the end you can see that some will compare to a BLANK cell if column "E" is ever blank. I first tried using countif but couldn't get it done. I only need totals that do not match in this category.i.e. 25 of 140 do not match.

Sum The Totals On One Column, If Two Other Columns Are True

Aug 18, 2008

(Excel 2003 on windows XP.)

I need to SUM the cells in column J when column E has the word "yes" and the range N:R has a letter "w" in one of the columns. Only one of the N:R columns will have an entry on any one row and it may not necessarily be a "W".

I have Googled, and being a beginner I don't comprehend the result! Some people were talking about using an add in, but I won't be allowed to add software to our PC's.

Comparing Two Columns In Excel Row By Row?

Jun 6, 2013

I have currently browsed the forums and have came up with a code to compare two columns from two separate excel books and then highlight anything matching with the CompareRange. Here is a few more details about the problem:

- I have two excel sheets. And data like this in each sheet:

(First Sheet) (Second Sheet)
-A B N O
-7 .7 3 .56
-6 .6 8 .45
-5 .5 9 .55
-4 .4 11 .2
-3 .3 8 .22
-2 .2 9 .55
-1 .1 8 .54

As you can see, given this example nothing should be highlighted once the macro is run since nothing from Column A or B from the first sheet matches directly with Column N & O from the second sheet. The problem is that with the macro (module) I have come up with will highlight "3" from Column A and ".2" from Column B, just because they appear in Column N & Column O respectivally. What I want: I only want a number to be highlighted if both the numbers "7" & ".7" are matched in the same row of Column N & Column O on the other spreadsheet. To be a little more precise, I'll give an example. Say I edited the data to be like this.

(First Sheet) (Second Sheet)
7 .7 3 .56
8 .45 8 .45
5 .5 9 .55
11 .4 11 .2
3 .3 8 .22
2 .2 9 .55
1 .1 8 .54

With this data, I would want the second row of A & B ("8" & ".45") highlighted, while my error "3" of Column A and ".2" of Column B is not highlighted. Also, I would like it if row 4 of Column A & B ("11" & ".4") is not highlighted at all either, just because in O it is .2 and in B it would be .4 even though the 11's match. Attached is the macro/module I have entered in which is working kind of correctly but producing the mistake. And also, (kind of a lesser problem), both the files with data will have the same header, example would be if Column A & Column N both had "Dogs" as it's title in Row 1 and Column B & O both had "Cats" as it's title in Row 1. Is there anyway the macro can be adjusted so it compares those two columns between the two workbooks without me even having to select or assigning a range?

HTML Code:
Sub Find_Matches()
Dim Column1 As Range
Dim Column2 As Range

Sort 4 Columns By Comparing 2

Aug 8, 2014

I have column A which contains a range of part numbers, and column B is an On Hand quantity of that part number.

Column C is just like column A, in that it contains the same part numbers but it has about 1,000 additional part numbers that are obsolete. Column D has the On Hand quantity for Column C.

Column A and B are old information as far as the On Hand quantities, where Column C and D are up to date On Hand. The problem is the old outdated part numbers in column C.

How do I make column A and column C match, but not lose their respective On Hand quantities? I know this sounds discombobulated, but basically I need column A's part numbers, with column D's on hand quantity.

Comparing Criteria Across Columns

Nov 25, 2008

I need to compare data across two columns: the date a claim was filed (column T), and the date it was resolved (column AH).

On my summary worksheet, I'm displaying the claim details for each month. I need to show how many of the claims filed (T) in each month are resolved (AH) - and for this output I'm not concerned about when they were resolved. This lets us track if there's still money due to flow out of the coffers for old claims. For example, there were 5 claims filed in July, and 4 of them are resolved. I want my summary tab to return a value of "Completed" beside July when I enter the resolution date for that last one, and "Pending" until then.

All the fields I'm describing are formatted as dates - including the name of the month (eg, "July" is displayed because I've put a custom format of "MMMM" on 7/1/08).

I've been playing around with countif and sumproduct but can't quite figure this one out.
