# Comparing And Copying Values Between Dates

Feb 19, 2010
I’m attempting to find values that are within a band of .001 of the values of cells in columns L through O and searching columns B through I for values that meet the .001 criteria and copying the values to columns Q, R, S, and T respectively.

I mentioned the values in L, M, N and O are where the comparisons will be made and these values are tagged to a specific date in Column K. I need to find the dates in Column A that are in between the values of K and the cell beneath it. For example, in K4 I have a date of 10/3/99 and the next date I have in K5 is 10/5/99. I would then query Column A for the dates 10/06/99 (A4), 10/07/99 (A5), and 10/08/99 (A6). The values I need to find within the .001 band are in Columns B through I (B4:I6). Lastly, when reach the last value in Column K, query all values in Column A greater than last value in K and copy the appropriate values in B through I to Q through T.

Rules for copying data to Column Q, R, S, and T:

For Column Q-

Find values in B, C, or D that’s within plus or minus .001 of M and copy the value of B, C, or D into Column Q of the same row.

For Column R-.................

In my attached example you can see I have Sheet "Computer" & Sheet "RHN" both have a number of columns, but all I want is to compare Column A of "Computer" with Column A of "RHN" and copy all entires found in A "Computer" and not found in A "RHN" to a new sheet!

I am using excel 2007, and trying to incorporate a VLookup into some code. The VLookup is comparing dates, which I think may be part of the problem.

Formula for comparing two dates

Cell A1 = 5/5/2012 (Recent Date)

Cell B1 = 5/6/2011 (Hire Date)

Cell C1 = =YEAR(A1)-YEAR(B1)

This formula gives a result of '1' even though it doesn't show an entire year.

I've also tried this formula:

=DATEDIF(B1,A1, "y")

This is more accurate as it formulates '0' as the result.

However if for some reason the 'Recent Date' in cell A1 is 5/5/12 and the 'Hire Date' in cell B1 is after the 'Recent Date', say 5/6/2012, the formula =YEAR(A1)-YEAR(B1) has a result of '0' and the formula =DATEDIF(B1,A1, "y") has a result of #NUM!.

Is there a formula that will give me accurate results whether the 'Hire Date' is before or after the 'Recent Date'? Maybe something similar to =DATEDIF(B1,A1, "y") but will give a result of '0' instead of #NUM!

I have a comments field in a reporting SS that I need to flag when the last comment is over a week old. The date however is entered into the same cell as the comment and the latest comment is put on a new line in the same cell, ie:

13/02 - Jimmy met with Shirley to discuss project A

10/02 - awaiting meeting

07/02 - agenda issued

Now, if needed I can make the date complete to include the year, ie 13/02/2008.

Is it possible using functions to see if the date in this cell is over 7 days previous to the date in another cell, say J1?

I tried =IF(LEFT(H10,10)

I have trouble trying to get the right sintax of comparing two dates locates in two different sheets.

Example:

Sheet 1, cell A1 = 12/11/2009

Sheet 2, cell B1 = 12/11/2009

If I need to do something based on condition that Sheet1 date = sheet 2 date, how will the code be written? I have

If Sheets("Sheet1").range("A1") = Sheets("Sheet2").range("B1") Then

**** my code here

I'm trying to determine if one date meets the criteria to be considered 'on time'. I have two columns: estimated completion date and completion date. I want to compare the completion date to the estimated completion date and if completion date is <= completion date but is NOT = 1/1/2099 then I met my date. I've tried this several different ways and problem is I cannot make it work.

When estimated completion date is 1/1/2099 'on time' should be 'no'

When estimated completion date is not 1/1/2099 but is greater than completion date 'on time' should be 'no'

When completion date is <= estimated completion date and estimated completion date is not equal to 1/1/2099 'on time' should be 'yes'

And I have a null date to deal with also but if I can satisfy the first 3 criteria I can manipulate the null values manually.

I have a problem regarding month formatting

I have 12 columns, Jan 2013 - Dec 2013.

I need to set a format in which if I enter a num eg 15 on the Jan Column, format comes as "15-Jan" format

or If i type 20 on the march column , it comes as "20-Mar" format

I would need it in Date format, because I would be comparing dates later on.

Any easy formula to compare two columens of fixed dates and count how many of each fall within a certain range of each other.

So, for example:

Col 1 Col 2

20/1/11 21/1/11

20/1/11 31/1/11

18/1/11 24/1/11

Lets say col one is a start date and col 2 is an end date. Now say I want to count the number of times the end date falls within8 days of the start

I would have thought that something as simple as

Code:

sumproduct(--(a1:a3<(b1:b3+8))

would work, but clearly I am making a fundamental error, and no matter what I try I'm getting stuck.

In functions it is easy to simply say =if(a1>b1, do X, don't do X)

But how do I do this in VBA? Excel 2007

I want to be able to compare a user-input date to dates in a column, and return 1 if the date in the column is less than the user input date, and 2 if it is greater.

Code:

Dim TheString As String, ReportDate As Date

TheString = InputBox("Please enter the date this report was run in mm/dd/yyyy format:", "What date do you want to enter?", "mm/dd/yyyy")

If IsDate(TheString) Then

ReportDate = DateValue(TheString)

[Code] ...

Code:

I have a simple formula to compare dates but it isn't working. I am missing something obvious. Any help is appreciated:

IF(BB64=Current_Date,"Today","Previous"))

where

Current_Date = today()

BB64 = an array that is a feed from a streaming quote company: =ILX|Q!'f,Date' .

When I format this cell it looks exactly like Current_Date, but is displays "Previous". Somehow it is not doing an apples to apples comparison even though the values lookthe same.

I need to compare dates that include both the date and time of day, to find when the day changes.

I have a large list of dates (also includes the time of day in the same cell). There are specific values in the next column that correspond to that date. Some of the values that are too great and have to be changed. This I have figured out with some help from this forum. When a value is changed I need to add together all the values for the corresponding day, some could be above and some could be below.

I need a Macro (not formula) which compares the comma separated values present in Column "I" with individual values present in Column "D" and generate the count of unique values in Column "J".

The sample sheet has been attached for reference.

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

[Code]...

In a nut shell it will look for 14000 in set of values 1 and pick T3 to then go in set of values 2 and display corresponding T3 which will be 1.5% in above example as output.

Comparing 2 values.

I need to compare the value's on 2 cells. I have a sheet setup for my sales I would like to compare each day of the week. So in other words I would like to compare this Monday with last Monday and know what the percentage of my sales ether up or down is.

Example:

Last Monday = sales $100.00

This Monday = Sales $200.00

100%

So If sales are up I would like the percentage amount font to be in green. But if sales are down I would like the percentage amount to be in red.

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.

How would I write a IF statement comparing 3 values. For example the field that it would be referencing would have values cell E51(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,...99). The pull back would be:

1-10 = $250,000

11-15 = $550,000

16+ = $750,000

I work for a financial firm. Every morning I compare today's cash balance file (sent from our custodian) with yesterday's to see if there is anything different in each portfolio cash balance column. Right now I'm doing it manually checking row by row. It'll become tedious if more and more portfolios are added. I'm looking for an efficient way I can use the portfolio codes column (as a key) to compare with previous day's file’s portfolio codes column , and list only those portfolios(in another workbook) if the corresponding cash balance column doesn't match. This is what I started doing:

Private Sub compare_cash_bttn_Click()

Dim b1 As Workbook, b2 As Workbook, b3 As Workbook

Dim w1 As Worksheet, w2 As Worksheet, w3 As Worksheet

Dim i As Integer

i = 2

Set b1 = Workbooks("CashA")

Set b2 = Workbooks("CashB")

'Set b3 = ActiveWorkbook

Set w1 = b1.Sheets(qry4rCash).........................

I have two columns A and B. I need a count of how many times a value in B is greater than the same row in A. I don't want to insert a new column (e.g. for if statements to add up).

Can I insert a countif at the top to do that? I tried various countif variations but could not find the right one. Additionally any other option that does not involve adding new columns/rows.

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.

I'll try my best to explain what I'm trying to do here using Excel macro (i've very limited knoledge in VBA ). I am working on a project where I'm using an actuator to measure micro-switches. The values are then extracted using HyperTerminal via RS232 and transferred to Excel to filter the values and display only the ones that are important.

Here is what I'd like to do via a Macro:

Compare cells in column A (e.g A1 and A2, A2 and A3, A3 and A4 etc.)

Example:

A

0

300

550

1200

1700

1900

2200

2000

1850

[Code]....

So first, if the values increase, do nothing and keep comparing other values. If we find the values decrease, display the larger value between the two, in this case it's the value 2200 that we want to display.

Next, the values will be decreasing progressively. We'll do the comparison between 2 values but this time if the values decrease, do nothing until we find a value increases. Display then the smaller value between the 2, here it's 1500.!

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