Comparing Cell Values In Two Worksheets

May 11, 2007

I am aware this question must have been asked to death on this forum and I already searched and found some answers but for some reason I canīt get it to work. I have two worksheets (sheet1 and sheet2). In Column E of Sheet1 I have product descriptions that I want to compare cell by cell to the product descriptions in Column F of Sheet 2. If they are not the same, color in the cell in Sheet 2. There are 1810 rows in both columns. I tried this method but it gives me an error (in spanish) that says that I cannot compare ranges of data.

I have also seen some code to do something similar (http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showpost...85&postcount=3 ):

Sub find_cell()
Range("A:E"). Find(What:=Cells(2, 6).Value, LookAt:=xlPart).Activate
ar = ActiveCell.Row
ac = ActiveCell.Column
' the two lines above store the row and column values of the cell found
' in your example ar is going to be equal to 229 and ac is 3
' now this following lines are to change the colors to red
With Cells(ar, ac).Interior
.ColorIndex = 3
.Pattern = xlSolid
End With
End Sub

I donīt quite get the "Range("A:E").Find(What:=Cells(2, 6).Value, LookAt:=xlPart).Activate" part though.

Comparing Cell Values?

May 28, 2014

I have a football score system and wish to compare the values of various cells - 2 if possible, but more if not possible.

Essentially I have a list of predictions for the score of a game (e.g. 2-1, 1-0, 0-0, 2-2 etc) in a spreadsheet, and I have a cell where I enter the correct scoreline (e.g. 2-1). The way the points system works is that if the prediction is correct (i.e. 2-1) then that player gets 3 points. If the result/outcome is correct but the scoreline is incorrect (i.e. 1-0) then the player gets 1 point. If they result/outcome and scoreline are incorrect, then that player gets 0 points.

Ideally I would link to compare 2 cells - predicted score and actual score, where the format of the scores is entered as 2-1.

However, I feel this may be easier having to columns for the score - Column A = 2 Column B = 1. In this way the scores only need to be compared cell by cell, however they would need to be compared by value for the correct outcomes.

Comparing Previous Values Of A Cell

Nov 4, 2009

I have a cell (F2) that is auto updated with total sales units for today (Its a simple counter of individual sales). I want to detect when there is a "batch" of sales >= 10. ie. F2 may start at zero for the day and increment by 1,2,5 or 10 units at a time. If the increment is 10 units or more I would like to detect this and store the result in cell G4.

Typical values in C2: 0, 1, 6, 7, 9, 19, 21, 22 etc as new orders arrive. The larger order between 9-19 (viz 10 or more), I need to detect and store in G4. I know that I need to use both the current value of F2 (say 19) and the previous value of F2 (say 9) to perform this, but the solution eludes me.

Comparing Cell Values And Moving Whole Rows?

Jul 2, 2014

I'm trying to compare the values of columns B and G and if any of the cells are G < B, I would like to move the whole row into the second worksheet. And only if possible, it would be awesome if the macro could check column A for duplicates before the value comparison and sum up the column B if there are duplicates. In my example row 6 and 7 on column A have the same suppliers code and the amount totals to 2.

In this case for example, the value of the third row of G is lower than B, and therefore I would like the whole row 3 to be cut out from worksheet 1 and moved to worksheet 2.

Original view of sheet 1:
SUPPLIERSCODE
ORDERAMOUNT
PRODUCTNAME
BARCODE

SUPPLIERSCODE
WAREHOUSE STOCK

And then cut out the rows in which G

Automating Comparing Cell Values And Then Processing A Formula

Apr 10, 2007

I have the need within a spreadsheet to automatically compare the value of 2 cells and if they match exactly to move the cursor to a group of cells. If they do not match then move to another group of cells. The only way that I can see to do this is via Macros. However I still need to do the automatic compare first.

Comparing Two Worksheets ....

Sep 8, 2007

have been trying to write a VB macro to compare two spreadsheets. Here is what I need help achieving....

Compare Sheet1 and Sheet2. Data exists in rows that have a unique identifier in one column.

If unique ID (with row of data) exists in Sheet1 and NOT Sheet2, add row from Sheet1 to Sheet3 and mark "REMOVE" in new column next to row.

If unique ID (with row of data) exists in Sheet2 and NOT in Sheet1, add row from Sheet2 to Sheet 3 and mark "ADD" in new column next to row.

If unique ID (with row of data) exists in both Sheet1 and Sheet2, take row from Sheet2 and place in Sheet3 and mark "UPDATE" in new column next to row.

Comparing Data Between Worksheets

Feb 15, 2013

I have two worksheets, whereby the headers pm each worksheet are the same. the data however may not be. If the entries are different, I have used =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(B2,'Master 0202'!B2:B50,1,FALSE)),"New","") to pick up new entries.

However, those that are not new, i.e. they are both in the old worksheet and the new worksheet, I need to find out whether there is any change in any of the cells. The headers run from columns A to W.

How can I find out if there are any changes in any of the cells in one go? Can I use another VLOOKUP?

Comparing The Same Cells In Two Worksheets

Aug 22, 2008

I would like to make a macro which compares the content of the same cells in two worksheets which are in the same workbook.

More clearer I have a workbook with two sheets (Sheet1 and Sheet2). What I would like the macro to do is to check cell A1 in Sheet1 and compare it to cell A1 in Sheet2 and so on till the last cell (IV65536). If there is a differnce between the two cells, then it should highlight the background of the cell in Sheet1.

I know that there has been similar requests on this forum (I searched and read them) but thew were different.

What formula do you use to say "if A1 does NOT match a value in range "jan", then format it"?

Comparing Worksheets - With Some Items Deleted

Jun 13, 2006

I have a task that I thought would be quite simple but I canít find a solution in any of the books I have or on this forum.

I receive a list of companies each day who owe money, in Worksheet1. The next day I receive an updated list in Worksheet2. Those companies who have now paid have been deleted from the list. I want to compare the two lists and highlight those companies in Worksheet1 who are no longer in Worksheet 2.

Iíve tried to do this by getting the values in the list in Worksheet2 to loop through the list in Worksheet1 but canít make it happen.

Iíd be really grateful if someone was able to help me with the code I need.

Comparing Entire Rows Within 2 Worksheets And Then Display Output In Another Worksheet Using VBA

Feb 6, 2014

I'm trying to compare 2 worksheets with the same headers(NAME, ADDRESS, CONTACT NO...). What codes should I use that when there is a duplicated row in worksheet A and worksheet B, it will be deleted and when there are 2 names with different addresses and/or contact no, the whole row in file A will be obtained. Output should also be in another worksheet. It goes like this.

worksheet A
NAME ADDRESS CONTACT NO
JOE ABC 123
MIL XYZ 567
NIK LMN 234
NED QRS 456

[Code]...

So the output should be:

worksheet C
NAME ADDRESS CONTACT NO
JOE ABC 123
MIL XYZ 567
NIK LMN 234
NED QRS 456
JIM JKL 345
SAM FGH 789

Comparing Input Value From Set Of Values 1 And Output Data From Set Of Values 2

Sep 28, 2012

Got a road block on one of the trackers which I am trying to create which compares some of our agreements. Basically we need to compare current production with our contracts and then bring the tier level they are at in order to then calculate how much in overrides we receive. Belwo is an example:

Input Value = 140000
Out Should be = 1.5%

Set of Values 1
T1
T2
T3
T4
