Comparing Columns For Values Greater Than Each Other
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.

Comparing Columns ...
I have a table with many columns of data on sheet1
Is it possible to have sheet2 have ... oh I dont know... say 5 columns. In which I can choose the headers that correspond to the headers in sheet1. Therefore comparing the columns that I want simply by changing the header?
Comparing Two Columns
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.
Comparing Criteria Across Columns
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.
Comparing Data In Two Columns
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
Macro For Comparing Columns
with hello and regards two all members and administrators
i have this table
COUNTRY1EXPORT$COUNTRY2IMPORT$SAME CODEEXPORT$IMPORT$30% MINOR
Column A: Country1 Export Code
Column B: Export value for Country 1
Column C: Country2 Import Code
Column D: Import value for Country 2
------------------- NOW ---------------------
i want to fill in Column E to H with a macro
Column E: same code in Column A and Column C
Column F: export value for same code (from Column B)
Column G: import value for same code (from Column D)
Column H: 30 percent of Minor Value
for example if F3 is 9000 and G3 is 1000 then H3 will be 2700 that is 30 percent of F3
Comparing Multiple Columns To One
I have data in column A which is the correct data. I also have data in other columns that I would like to compare to column A. If the data is the same, then it moves beside it, if not then it leaves a blank cell.
I have looked for macros and formulas to do this for ages but i cant seem to find one. Here is an example
A B C D

Comparing Two Address Columns
I'm trying to compare addresses in a worksheet, column A and column C have the addresses in them, in column A there are 44063 rows and column C has 43751 rows , both columns should have the same number of rows in each column because they should have the same number of addresses in each column but they dont so what i need to find out is which addresses from column A arent in column C and which addresses in column C arent in Column A and have the result put in column D.
Comparing Two Columns Of Numbers
I want Excel to compare two columns of numbers. Column R has 1000 entries,
beginning with the number 1 and ending with the number 1000. Column S will
have from approx. two hundred to as many as six or seven hundred entries,
looking something like this: 3, 5, 6, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 18 . . . . . . 990, 992,
995, 996, 999, 1000. I want Excel to compare column S with column R and
display the difference in Column T. Column T will therefore look like: 1,2,4,
7, 8, 9, 12, 16, 17, 19 . . . . . 899, 991, 993, 994, 997, 998. I have to do
this multiple times, does Excel have a built-in function(s) that can do this or
do I need to write a macro? The numbers can be formatted as text if neces-
Comparing Columns Of Text And Calculating A Value
I work in a School and need to create a points awards system based on GCSE Grades.
I have predicted and actual grades for each pupil in columns. I need to figure out how I can calculate an award point for this. i.e. if the predicted grade is an A and the Pupil gets a C this would be a minus 1 point score. I need to do this for all subjects and add a total.
I have attached a spreadsheet with a demonstration of what I require. I have created formulas to do what I require however I see it as terrible programming but I cannot figure out another more efficient way.
Comparing 2 Or More Columns And Returning A True Value
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 Lists In 2 Columns For A Match
If I have a column with a list of items, and another column with a different list of items, how can I get excel to check/compare both list and return a value (eg. TRUE) if there is an item that is both lists, or a different value (eg. FALSE) if there isn't?
Lookup Between 2 Columns, Match Next Greater Value
Please see the attached example of my problem. I have TIME in column A in minutes and % in Column B. What I would like to do is search the % column against the value inputed into E2 (in the example 52%) and find the corresponding TIME value (Col A). However, where there is no exact match of the E2 value I would like to select the next greater value. For example as there is no 55% in my example the formula would move on to 57.27% and record 21 in D2.
Comparing 2 Columns, Highlighting The Higher Number
I am trying to do is I have column C and column G. For each row, I want to highlight or change the font color of the greater number. I can do it with conditional formatting, but I am only able to do it for 1 row at a time and it will take forever considering there are over 800 rows.
Is there an easy way to compare the two columns and highlight or change the font color of the higher number in that row?
So it would highlight the 5 in the first row, the 8 in the second row, the 6 in the third row, and 11 in the fourth row.
Comparing Two Columns And Display Not Matched Entries
I've tried searching for an answer all over with out success. Here's my dilemma. I've got two columns (A and B) with over 1000 entries in each column with computer names. Most of the names are the same however some differ in the way that they might be in column A and not in column B and vice versa. What I would like to achieve is to compare those two columns and display the result in column C and D but keep the names of the in the retrospective column.
What I mean by that is that if a name was found in A but not in B I would like to have it displayed in column D and vice versa. If a name is found in B but not in A, to have it displayed in column C. If there is an easier of doing this, please by all means (i.e. highlight the name in A if missing in B and vice versa).
Comparing 2 Values.
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.
Last Monday = sales $100.00
This Monday = Sales $200.00
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.
Comparing Two Columns And Want To Delete Row, Dont Match
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
For Each c In Selection
If c.Value = Range("A4") Then c.Rows.Interior.ColorIndex = 36
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
I got this code so far that highligts the rows that match but range a4 needs to go down the column to a5, a6, a7....so it only checks the first cell in column a. I need it check all cells. Then i was going to delete the entire row in column B where it was not highlighted.
Trying To Average The Last 10 Values Greater Than 0
Members in our club enter competitions each month and receive scores. I want to be able to average the top five scores from the last ten competitions each member entered, keeping in mind that not all members enter all competitions and will score 0 in this situation.
Its easy if members enter every competition, but I want a formula that will work also for when members may only enter 10 of the last say 15 competitions and I still need to find the average of the top 5 scores.
Member Name is in A1, and then scores are in A2-A25.

Sum Values Greater Than Zero
In columns A and B, I have a list of time values. Format: [h]:mm:ss. Column C is B-A. Last row of Column C is the sum of all time values of column C. Sometimes A>B, or either A or B is blank. In such casescorresponding C value becomes ##### (negative date and time) And hence sum of all C values which is in last row of C becomes ####.

Comparing With Key Values In 2 Workbooks
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")

Macro: Comparing Values In One Column
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.)
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.
Comparing Previous Values Of A Cell
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 And Copying Values Between Dates
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-.................
Comparing Cell Values In Two Worksheets
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 ):
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
I don´t quite get the "Range("A:E").Find(What:=Cells(2, 6).Value, LookAt:=xlPart).Activate" part though.
Check For Values Greater Than Zero In 2 Cells
I want to divide the numbers from 2 cells, down a long column. Let's further say that in some instances there aren't any numbers in either of the cells. You get a divide by zero error.
So you have values in a1 and b1 through a10 and b10. You want to divide the value in the a column by the value in the b column and return the answer in the adjacent c column. You've copied the formula all the way down to c20.
All the cells from c11 to c20 will have divide by zero errors.
What is the syntax to check if both cells in columns a and b are greater than zero so that either an answer will be returned or just a blank cell will result, (when nothing is in one of the cells from a or b?
The following formula works for checking the status of cell A, how do I also check the value in cell B?
=(IF(A5>0 and B5>0,A5/B5,""))
Sum Values Greater Than 0 As A Fixed Value
I have a column of values. If a row's value is greater than 0, I want to count it as a value of 100 and add the result. I can get this far: =SUMIF(H11:H12,">0")
...but I don't understand what would come next. What I am trying to do is to use the above formula to total the actual sum of an array and then to also create a second column which assigns a maximum value total based on each row's non-zero result being worth up to 100. Using the above formula as a reference again, the formula that I am seeking would return a total value of 200 if both H11 and H12 contained any value greater than 0. I plan to use these two results then to calc a percentage.
Lookup Values Less/Greater Than Set Value
I am using vlookup to read a 3500 from the table below.
My question is how do I write the formula so that it looks up a radius of 3500 by looking up a value slightly smaller than 3500, in this case 3440 and return the value of 4.4
Count Data/Values Greater Than Zero
I have a spreadsheet that contains dates in column A and numbers in column B. For some dates I do not have data available but I must include all of the dates, so a date with no data available has a 0 in column B. I need to come up with a way to average the total of my data with the total number of weeks with data (ones without a 0) that will recalculate everytime I add new data. How do I write a function that will check column B for a number greater than 0 and then based on that result either count or ignore column A, and then total the number of times A is counted?
SumIf The Sum Of Unique Values Is Greater Than Criteria
I have a problem which is beyond my capabilities. I need excel to sum amount column (See example table below) by unique values in company column then conditionally sum those values based on the year of investment, stage of company and finally, the kicker, the summed Amount by unique companies value has to be less than a certain threshold.
For example, I want companies in Stage Column of Exit only and in year 2004 only BUT only if the sum of the Amounts by unique company values is less than 100. So in the example table this would return 0. I have code and criteria written to sum unique values based on similar criteria such as sum if company Stage is Seed and Year is 2004 but for the life of me I can't seem to make the jump further.
For Unique values I used this function:
This along with criteria explained before returns the number of unique companies that are Stage=Seed and Year=2004 or sum of amounts with that criteria.
I am trying to adapt this technique to get what I want but to this point have been unsuccessful. My best guess is that I will need to create an array of the unique companies (New Sheet column A) with the Summed Amounts (New sheet column B) and then run functions again with the easier equations and criteria? I am trying to avoid combining company records as each investment needs to remain individual and there are 16000 records. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Company Year Amount Stage XYZ 2004 10 Seed XYZ 2004 20 Seed ABC 2004 5 Early ABC 2004 25 Early DEV 2004 14 Later DEV 2004 19 Later TRU 2004 100 Exit TRU 2004 120 Exit TRU 2004 100 Exit
Searching For Values Greater Than Zero, Listing 3 Of Those Data In Order
Below is what I currently have on my excel spreadsheet:
2. Input Column 3
3. 0 No
4. 2 Yes_2
5. 0 NO
6. 0 NO
7. 0 NO
8. 2 YES_6
9. 0 NO
10. 1 YES_8
11. 0 NO
The spreadsheet starts by the user inputting numbers ONLY in column 1 (under input). The rest is done automatically by implementing equations. Column 2's equation is easy, if the value of column 1 is greater than 0, return YES_(row number). In addition, the maximum number of Yes's in column 2 is three (constraint).
My problem is that I need a 3rd column, consisting of only 3 rows that search for YES_1, YES_2, and YES_3. The 3rd column's equation is easy, I will simply use the Vlookup function for YES_1, Yes_2, and Yes_3. Therefore the PROBLEM IS: I need column 2 to output YES_1 (in row 4, from the example above), YES_2 (in row 8) ...etc. This would mean chaning the basic IF equation that I have which simply sees if the value in column 1 is greater than 0 then outputting "YES_the row number".
Comparing Values In One Column And Inserting Multiple Blank Rows
I am working on formatting a spreadsheet report where the values will change in column A. Here is what I would like to do via a Macro. Compare the cells in column A (e.g., compare A2 to A3, compare A3 to A4, and so on). If the values between the two cells in column A are different, insert three blank rows and set the active cell to the next cell following the blank lines. Example:
if cell A5 is different from A6, insert three blank rows below row 5 and new active cell is now A9 and the comparison would start again. I have been trying to code the macro for this but with no success. Here is the macro I have been working on.
Const NumRow As Integer = 3
Dim StartCell As Range
Dim RowNR, NewCnt As Long
Dim RowCount As Long
Dim Count As Long
Dim intRow As Integer
Dim bFmtComplete As Boolean
RowCount = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA _
(Range("A1", Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)))
bFmtComplete = False
RowNR = 2
Subtotal With Condition (only Count Values Greater Than Zero When Data Is Filtered)
=SUBTOTAL(2,A2:A100) can be used in combination with any other formula so that when the data is filtered using autofilter it will only count values greater than zero.
I have attached a worksheet with the example.
In the attached workbook subtotal formulas are used in Row1 for sum and row 2 for count.
When the data is filtered using code "DUP" in column D, the subtotal in cell C2 is "4", whereas in the specified range there is a positive value in only 1 cell that is $1050 in cell C99.
Is there some combination that can be used with SUBTOTAL formula so that it will only count values greater than zero when data is filtered.
Comparing A String To Values In An Array Resulting In A Run Time Error 1004
This workbook is designed to prompt the user with inputboxes allowing them to enter a name, hyperlink a file to that name, and then a date. Next all the drawing names are read into an array and stored. Along with some minor sheet formatting, this is what happens when the button "Add Drawing" is clicked.
Next, when the button "Revise Drawing" is clicked, the user will be prompted with an inputbox for a drawing name. This name will be compared to the names in the array. If the name is found, the row containing that drawing will selected and the user will be prompted to update the hyperlink, then the "drawing date" will be moved to the right by one column, then the user will be prompted for another date replacing the date that was moved. The first sequence of commands or button works fine. The button "Revise Drawing" prompts the user with the inputbox requesting the revised drawing name, then develops the runtime error 1004.
Record Greater Than 50 In A Cell So It Reads As Greater Than 50
I have to make a table that shows that a if someone purchases
less than 5 items they receive no discount
5-10 items they receive 2% discount
11-20 items they receive 5% discount
21-50 items they receive 8% discount
over 50 items they receive 10%
and it has to be done in a way that the discount rate can be calculated using Vlookup I am struggling to find the best way to write this table. i tried numbering 1 to 50 and writing the corresponding discount rate in the second column but this looks untidy and can't calculate greater than 50 as i am not sure how to write it in the cell so it reads as >50 and not just 50.
Counting Formula (compare Values In 2 Separate Columns To See How Many Times The Same Value Appears In Both Columns)
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.
