# Comparing And Matching Data ...

Jul 29, 2009

I am trying to compare a list of product codes on sheet 1 column A, with a larger list of product codes on sheet 2 column B.

My aim: when i click to button on sheet one the part numbers that are in both lists (sheet 1 and 2) Should be moved into sheet 3 columns B and be rearranged so that they match horzontally with the full sheet two pricelist which will have now moved to column A sheet 3. This should leave gaps in column B where there was no matching part number.

## Comparing 2 Columns Have Similar Data - Extract Matching Data

Apr 18, 2013

So I have this problem in excel with comparing 2 columns.

Basically, I have 2 columns(a &B) that I need to compare with one another and find out the matching data. I am trying to use that matching data to enter in our reports.

Both columns might have duplicate items because I am dealing with premium numbers.

Formula to compare these 2 columns and find the matching data and extract it to a separate column. Keep in mind, i am dealing with almost 20,000 lines of data.

## Return Matching Numbers By Comparing 2 Ranges

Apr 30, 2008

I have a collum (A )with numbers and in other sheet have a collum (B)with numbers too.. and some numbers match. what i want is in the cells that the numbers match have other colum and i want to copy that number to another cell.

## Comparing Two Column For Matching Number But The Items Compared Also Contains Letters

May 2, 2006

I am trying to compare two colums. They both contain numbers mixed with letters. I am wanting to match only the numbers in both not the letters. Example:

column a = m454 column b = fsh454-1
m543 fst998-2
m998 fsm434-1

my match is m454 and fsh454-1, m998 and fst998-2. The items can be in any order in the column. The end result I want to indicate the match by putting an X by column a item that matches column b.

## Compiling Partially Matching Data Into Matching Rows With Macro

Jan 20, 2013

My task is to combine two large databases into one spreadsheet by extending the number of columns. The data from each database is 90% matching based on an identification number, however occasionally there are additional rows or unmatched identification numbers that need to be kept for analysis.

When this happens, there needs to be a blank row inserted to represent the missing data in the rest of the corresponding row.

I am having trouble finding a quick way to do this because I have approximately 12,000 rows (and columns up to DV when combined).

for example:

p1
data
data
data
data
p2
data
data
data
data

[Code] .....

needs to become:

p1
data
data
data
data

[Code] .....

I am guessing I will need a macro of sorts, So far I have made one column that tell me if the ID's are matching or not (1 or 0) and if they are not matching (0) I manually insert the rest of the row that is missing or make space for the duplicate data (which needs to remain).

## Matching Two Tables - Copying Data For Matching Value?

Feb 27, 2014

I have two tables, Table1 one has only customer codes in it, and I have Table2 with plenty of customer codes and those customer name, surname, age, location...

And I want to match and copy each of those customer codes in Table 1 all the information which is on Table2

Table 1:
50025
50026
50086

Table 2: Considering that name, age and location is each in separate cell

50025JohnSecond25Location 1
60085EmilyThird 20Location 2
45454Wilhelm Fourth35Location 3
10000RoseFifth 60Location 4
50086JohnySixth 45Location 5
65501JacobSeventh18Location 6
50026Jackie Eighth22Location 7

And the outcame should be that it finds the value from Table1 in Table2 and copy's information in Table 1 like this:

50025 JohnSecond25Location 1
50026 Jackie Eighth22Location 7
50086 Johny Sixth 45Location 5

## Copy Matching And Non Matching Data Into New Worksheet

Feb 20, 2014

I have two worksheet "ABX" and "ACX" from which I want to find the matching data for specific columns B, D and E only.

Matching data will be in sheet "Match" and vice versa.

Data are present dynamically.

## Excel 2010 :: Comparing / Merging Child Spreadsheet (purified Data) Into A Parent One Raw Data)

May 17, 2014

I have a parent spreadsheet with raw data(with errors) and a child spreadsheet without errors. I want to merge the child into parent. (:{). I am thinking of comparing multiple columns from each sheet to ensure maximum accuracy. And when those columns match up we paste the corrected column data from child sheet to parent one. I am using windows 7 and Excel 2010.

## Comparing Data Between 2 Worksheets

Sep 19, 2013

I currently have 2 worksheets worth of data in the same workbook. Each data set has its own date and time stamp in columns A and B respectively with varying data then following in the row. I would like to write a macro that would look in worksheet 2 and find the matching date and time stamped row in worksheet 3. Then select the data from both worksheet 2 and worksheet 3 and paste them in the same row in worksheet 1.

## 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.

## Comparing Data In Different Columns

Dec 4, 2012

I have need to do a comparison of 2 values located in different columns. As this is almost impossible to describe in text format, I have included a spreadsheet showing exactly the problem. Im sure the solution will involve INDEX and MATCH but every permutation I have tried has failed (possibly theres another way?).

## 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 Two Sheets Of Data?

Apr 13, 2014

Not sure if this should be in VBA or Formulas however what im trying to achieve:

I have a data report that i pull today, tomorrow i want to run the same report and see if there are any differences on the report. e.g show data that was not on the previous report.

Id imagine id have a sheet with yesterdays data, sheet with todays data, sheet with Differences that only shows the new lines between the report. Then after i have done i would just create a macro clear the difference sheet so its blank, copy todays data over to yesterdays data and repeat the process daily.

## Comparing Data Lists

Sep 27, 2011

I have two lists of serial numbers which I want to compare to find those number which are not in both lists. I have used the following formula: =IF(A2=\$G\$2:\$G\$283,"",A2) where A2 equals the first cell in list 1, G2:G283 the range of the second list, true value "" false value display the contents of the original cell.

This works so far; where the contents in the A and G cells are the same on the row eg A2 and G2, but where they are different the contents of the A cell are being returned even if they are elsewhere in the range.

## Comparing Data In 2 Worksheets?

May 7, 2012

I would like to compare the data between 2 worksheets ("Sheet1") and ("Test") so that the contents of any cells in "Sheet1" that are different to the corresponding cells in "Test" are highlighted with a yellow background.

## 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. Fine.

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 Two Spreadsheets With Same Data

Nov 20, 2013

I want to compare two spreadsheets with the same data. One spreadsheet is for a certain type of beneficiary and the other spreadsheet is another type. We will call them Spreadsheet A and Spreadsheet B. They both contain Zip Codes and a count of zip codes. (Some of the zip codes is not a 5 digit code, but some letters or letters and numbers.) I want to compare the two spreadsheets and see if the same zip code appears in both spreadsheets and if they do, show them in a separate tab and total the two counts from the two spreadsheets.

Column A - Zip Code
Column B - Count

## Comparing Data In Two Columns

Oct 1, 2008

Right now i have a list of data in text format....they are stock tickers. One column is about 2000 entries long and the other is 500 entries long. I need to compare the two columns together and highlight the entries in the long column when they match to an entry in the 500 column. I have tried so many different formulas and conditional formatting on my own and can't figure it out

## Comparing 2 Sets Of Data ...

Feb 23, 2009

I am wondering if it is better to do this in excel or access. I am pretty familiar with access...i know this would be easy to do if querying from one table and doing a relationship between identifier, but i'm not sure how to capture data from both tables. But basically this is what I want. I have 2 files, which have identifiers and share amounts...both files will have some like identifiers, some not alike...basically this is what I want to do: ....

## Comparing Two Sets Of Data

Aug 28, 2009

I'm trying to compare two sets of data on the same sheet. Each set has 4 columns...A - D and F - I. I would like to take the data from D and I (range 20 to 50) and compare them to see if any differences exist in the two columns. If there is something different I would like to bold and highlight the cells (A-D) in that row, and the same goes for the second set of data (F-I).

I'm trying to do this with macros so I can add it into my existing code.

## Comparing And Inserting Data From Another Worksheet

Jul 10, 2014

I have two worksheets.

1 worksheet I have a value and I need next to it the result i take from other worksheet.

LETTERS
AMOUNT
A
Result
C
Result
G
Result

[Code]...

The list goes on.

So Pretty much I need to compare the value "LETTERS" on the first worksheet with the array of letters from second worksheet and insert in the field of the Result, the value next to the correct find in the array of letters ...

## Comparing 2 Sets Of Data :: Zip Codes

Oct 28, 2009

I am trying to compare two sets of data.

I have a set of All zip codes in 10 counties in one worksheet:

ex:

Column 1 / Column 2
30303 / Fulton
30307 / Fulton
30310 / DeKalb
30234 / Cobb

But this sheet has about 300 zip codes

Then in a second worksheet I have dollars by zip

30303 / \$10,000
30456 / \$56,000

I'd like to make a third column in this sheet that fills in what county. Does anyone know how to search sheet one for the appropriate zip, then stick the word beside that zip into the column 3 secion of the dollars by zip code?

I'd rather not have to search every zip code in the dollars section one at a time. Not all the zip codes in the state are represented in the second sheet, so it's not quite as simple as just lining them up.

## Comparing Two Columns Of Data And Highlighting?

Aug 21, 2014

So I played around with the macro i posted on the previous thread, two allow me to compare two columns of data to see if they contain the same information, and have come up with the below, which works almost flawlessly:

[Code]....

The idea being that it compares the two rows of data, then in the colmun to the right puts a y or n if the data is contained in both cells. I have added in some code that related to highlighting those cells with 'n' in the allow me to see it much easier. The macro works fine, however it seems that when it runs, it will sometimes highlight random cells not in column d, for example colum g etc.

## Comparing Data In Multiple Rows

Apr 20, 2009

I have a spreadsheet containing donation data for a non-profit organization with over 25,000 rows. The spreadsheet contains a lot of data, and is sorted by donor name, donation date (when the donation was made) and the feedback date (feedback on how the donation was used).

I'm looking to analyze how many transactions were made by a donor within 10 days of receiving feedback for a previous donation. The condition to check for is

(donor name is the same) AND (donation date >= feedback data for a previous donation) AND (donation date <= feedback data for a previous donation + 10 days).

How do I best perform this comparison? For instance, a donor may have made 20 donations, so I need to compare these donations amongst themselves and flag the ones where the donation date within 10 days of the feedback date for any other donation. I need to perform this exercise for each individual donor.

## Retrieve Value By Comparing Column Data

Nov 6, 2009

I need a macro to do the following:

I need Invoice # from column A to put in Column I by comparing Name in G and H with Name in D and E.

For Example
Compare Alfred Whitworth (Column G & H) in Column D & F would give Inv # 88530 ...this value will go in column I.

Compare Angela Owens and could not find in Column D and E so leave Column I Blank.

Compare Annabelle Deen would have Inv # 88740

And so on...

## IF Function: Comparing Data From Two Columns

Jul 27, 2009

I'm comparing data from two columns like this:

FALSE
FALSE
FALSETRUE
FALSEFALSE
FALSE
FALSE

and my goal is to have a TRUE or FALSE in the third column for the following criteria: TRUE if left column equals TRUE or if left column equals FALSE and right column equals TRUE. False if else........

## Comparing Dissimilar Data In Two Sheets

May 5, 2012

I would like to compare column b of sheet 2 to column b of sheet 1.

If the entry exists in both sheets then i would like to delete the entire row in sheet 2.

## Comparing Two Similar Sets Of Data

Apr 30, 2014

I've got a pretty tough problem I need to solve with excel. So im comparing prices of products from 2 Different Sources, I need the best method of comparing these sets of data. Realistically I need both sets of data to compare and move automatically (or create duplicates elsewhere) to show the product ID, Price A and Price B.

Here's an example

Supplier A
Cheese Grater: 39.99
Golden Spoon: 129.99

Supplier B
Cheese Grater: 59.99
Golden Spoon: 89.99

These values will then combine to read

Supplier A Supplier B
Cheese Grater: 39.99 59.99
Golden Spoon: 59.99 89.99

Not sure if it will matter but both lists are not identical, all I want are the matches not the ones unique to different suppliers.

This comparison list is like 12,000 products long, I'll never be able to do it manually. This has stumped me for a while now I only seem to be able to find formulas which give TRUE / FALSE or Colour changes.

## Comparing Workbooks For Exact Data

Apr 6, 2007

way I can check workbooks, and compare it to make sure they have the same exact data. What I would like to do ---

-I have 76 workbooks, and in each workbooks I have 12 worksheets
-I would like to compare, Table01_cue.xls to Table01_Master.xls to make sure that A1:N76 (sheet Jan) in Table01_cue.xls match with A1:N76 (sheet Jan) in Table01_Master.xls, The range in each worksheets changes … for sheets Feb it is range from A1:O76… is there a way to check this?

And if the data doesn’t match up I would like it to tell me where it doesn’t match up…
