# Comparing Groups Of Numbers For Duplicates

Jan 1, 2010

I am trying to solve is as follows, I have groups of 20 numbers in columns, one per column and would like to compare the groups to determine if any group is duplicated on another line.

I had been looking at using VBA to copy the numbers to an array, sort from lowest to highest, concatenate and use that to compare each group. If possible however if there is a suitable formula it would be preferable.

I have attached a small sample to illustrate.

## Comparing Value To Three Groups

Mar 2, 2007

Here's one:

Column C (starting at C6) contains the team number. I want column B to find out if the team number is an AM, Mid or PM team.

I have listed the AM teams at J1:U1, the Mid teams at J2:K2 and the PM teams at J3:V3.

How can the formula in column B search those ranges and determine if the team in column C is AM, Mid or PM?

## Comparing And Sorting Multiple Column Groups?

Feb 28, 2014

I'm am trying to take multiple column-groups and sort them by product ID number.

I am trying to put together a sales record for the past 26 months for around 2000 different items and sorting them manually would obviously be a nightmare.

I would like to sort them so that all the drugs with the same NDC (prod ID) have the correct data for each month displayed on the correct row for that NDC. Right now I have each set of data for that month sorted by product ID number but some months we used certain products and others we did not. Is there any sort of Macro that I could use? What I am trying to do I attached two files. The "before" and my desired "after".

## Highlight Duplicates Within Separate Groups Of Data

Oct 2, 2009

I have just looked through most of the postings I could find on the board regarding VBA to identify duplicates. Virtually all of these use the entire column when checking for duplicates.

I am after code which will identify duplicates in column A within a contiguous range of data.
For example there is a heading in column B and below this photo details will be entered and in the next column the photo number is entered.
Finally a number (for sorting) is entered in column A. The photos will be numbered 1 to whatever. So I need code which will highlight duplicates in that contiguous range of data.
Then there is one or two blank rows before another batch of photo details are entered. This means the same sorting numbers are used and are separated by a blank row or rows.

## Comparing Two Lists For Duplicates

Oct 15, 2008

I'm trying to compare two lists of songs to see which songs are not shared by both lists. I wrote a simple function to try to do this but ran into problems pretty fast. I want to create a function which will tell me if the song in a cell (lets say cell B2) is the same as any of the cells in Column A.

## Comparing Two Duplicates To Second Criteria

Aug 24, 2009

I have two columns: Column A with SS#, Column B with loan #. i need a formula that would return 2 different loan #s for same SS# on a different worksheet. Example

SS#:Loan #ResultSS#Loan #123567812312356781231235678345123567834534578917862950013351

Spend all morning on this. Tried various INDEX, COUNTIFs, MATCH, VLOOKUPs but when looking at the same SS# in a column it always returns the first Loan#.

## Comparing Lists And Deleting Duplicates Automatically

Mar 17, 2007

I have two seperate lists. One on Sheet 1 and One on sheet 2. What I need to do is take the list on sheet 2 and compare it to the list on sheet 1. If any of the items appear on sheet one, I need to delete those items form sheet 2.

So in the end the only items left on sheet 2 will be items that dont match any items on sheet 1

## Macro For Deleting Duplicates / Comparing Rows And Retaining Minimum Value?

Apr 6, 2014

I have data from Columns A to D. I want to do the
following:

1. Look for duplicates in all column A

2. For each duplicate found in column A, check if all values in column B are also duplicate.

3. If the condition in (2) is satisfied, compare column D for all the rows; select the row with the minimum value in column D, and delete the other rows.

For example:
A B C D

Row1: Abby 04/01/2014 7:00PM 0.98437
Row2: Sam 04/01/2014 9:00PM 0.35627
Row3: Abby 04/04/2014 7:00PM 0.68932[code]....

## VBA Code - Summing Groups Of Numbers

Jul 17, 2014

Product Group Arg.Braz.Mex.Peru
Red paint Paint5324
Blue paintPaint5684
WallpaperWallpaper6585
LampsFurniture 4631
ChairsFurniture 1645
Green paintPaint1356
SofasFurniture 3358

SUM(Paint,Argentina)SUM(Paint,Brazil)SUM(Paint,Mexico)SUM(Paint,Peru)
SUM(Wallpaper,Argentina)SUM(Wallpaper,Brazil)SUM(Wallpaper,Mexico)SUM(Wallpaper,Peru)
SUM(Furniture,Argentina)SUM(Furniture,Brazil)SUM(Furniture,Mexico)SUM(Furniture,Peru)

I am trying to work out VBA code or another way in Excel to find a solution for this problem - I need to be able to sum up the values that I have posted below - so for SUM(Paint,Argentina), this would be the sum of the red paint, blue paint and green paint values under the Argentina heading, that are all categorised into the 'Paint' group. The same follows for all the other categories. I was trying to use 'Defined Names' to group the categories together, and so would then do =Sum(Paint). However this was not allowing me to sum by each country, and the 'Create from Selection' naming tool was not naming all of the values for Paint (blue paint, red paint, etc.) under the paint category.

This is an incredibly simplified version of the data I am actually dealing with - I am doing this for 70 country columns and 250 rows of product categories.

## Separating Mass Groups Of Numbers?

Jul 11, 2012

I am trying to separate a huge group of phone numbers from one cell into individual cells in a column. the numbers are currently separated by a semicolon. Is there an easy way to perform this action?

## Macro To Extract Numbers In Groups

May 8, 2013

I have a workbook called PETB. I would like to extract the following account number ranges in Col A to sheet 2 (the numbers are all 6 digits) for eg 273000

1) All numbers starting with 2730 and ending in a zero and 02 to be extracted together in one group for eg 273000, 273050, 273250, 273002, 273052 to be extracted below each each

2) All numbers starting with 2730 and ending in a 4 to be extracted together in one group

3) All numbers starting with 2730 and ending in a 6 to be extracted to together in one group

## List Permutations Of FOUR Groups From SEVEN Numbers

May 21, 2013

I have SEVEN numbers and FOUR groups.

What I would like to do is list ALL the PERMUTATIONS of those SEVEN numbers in FOUR groups.

So basically, the groups would look like...

7000
4210
4201
4111
4003
3400
3310
3301
3301
3220

[code].....

...and EACH group would add up to SEVEN etc.

I think there are a total of 840 different PERMUTATIONS available, from anything from 0 numbers in a group to 7 numbers in a group.

I need ALL these groups listed individually .Is there some code that will do this?

## Grouping List Of Numbers Into 5 Equal Groups

Nov 2, 2011

I have a list of 600 figures (this may vary) but i need a formula that will look a one particular figure in this list and return if it is one of 5 equal groups. e.g in this example the lowest 125 figures in numeric order would be in group 1 up to the highest 125 figures would be in group 5.

I realise if I limit it to 4 groups then i could use the 'quartile' functions but i am stuck with 5 groups.

## Splitting Large Numbers Into Groups (LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE)

Nov 16, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with a column of Longitude values like:

I want to somehow split the cell into new individual cells so it will be like this:

A B C
17 28 28.383

## Fill Range With Sequential Numbers Based On Corresponding Column Groups

Feb 15, 2010

In the attached workbook I'm trying to populate Column E with sequential numbers (as shown) based upon a changing range (defined as a named range called 'range'). Is it possible to write a formula in the cells in Column E that will do this?

## Create A Function That Numbers Rows With Respect To Data Groups In A Column

## Comparing Certain Numbers In Two Different Cells

Nov 7, 2008

I was wondering if someone can at least point me in the right direction with respect to comparing two numbers within a value in two different cells. For example:

If one cell has the value "AB123456"
And the cell below it has a value of "AB124658"

I want to be able to determine the difference (with VBA code) between both cells by just looking at the fourth and fifth characters ("23" and "24", respectively) in each cell value.

## Comparing Two Columns Of Numbers

Aug 11, 2006

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-
sary

## Comparing Numbers To A Variety Or Ranges?

Jul 7, 2014

I have a list of numbers which I need to compare to a range of numbers. Each number in the list needs to be compared to the range, and depending where it falls within the range, a particular cell needs to be referenced in the result. I've attached the xls with the explanation.

I was going to do this with a nested IF, but with a max of 7 this will not work.

## Bubble Sort: Comparing Numbers & Letters

Jun 3, 2007

I have 3 departments, each with a value. I want to sort from lowest value to greatest (which I have done) but some departments won't have a value and therefore will have "n/a" in the place of the value. When sorting, "n/a" always comes out as the greatest value but I want "n/a" to be the lowest value - since it means there is no value.

Here is an example of the data:
Depts: Value:
580 15.75
558 19.01
538 n/a

Here is the code (sorting is being done on the value obviously, and the switching of the Depts to stay with the value is also done in the code)

Private Sub RankPerformance()

Dim bytValuesArrayCount As Byte
Dim A As Byte
Dim B As Byte
Dim vTemp As Variant 'must be type since value can be number or string ("n/a")

bytValuesArrayCount = UBound(ValuesArray)

The only way I know to do it is to sort using the above code, then do another type of sort if a value is not numeric then it is placed at the end...but I'm trying to make the code as efficient as possible

## Comparing 2 Identical Numbers Returns False

Sep 23, 2007

I have some problem with my data here. I have created a formula to compare the numeric value between the column. I want to have the results in the column but the results I have is wrong. Did i did something wrong with the formula?

I wanna compare the value from A2 and C2, B2 and D2. If the results is correct, then is will display true value in e2 else will display false value in e2.

when i compare 2.3oz and 2.25oz, the value displayed is true which is wrong, it should display "false"

I have attached the file here...

## 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 2 Columns With Numbers / Letters And Alphanumeric Values

May 13, 2014

I have 2 columns i want to find out which items match in each column and put the matching value in column c. I have tried Vlookup and continue to get an N/A .. I tried countif and I get either an N/A or a value error. I have tried turning the cells into text but that is not working either..

column A has about 1700 rows and column B has about 4000

MOST CELLS ARE 6-7 VARIABLES.. satrting with either 01, 02, 03 with 4-5 letters following or have a 6 digit number or 6 letter value.

## Random Numbers With No Duplicates

Jan 30, 2010

I want to set up a column of numbers that will be random without any repeating numbers.

Example: If I set up for 1,000 rows, I would like the random numbers to be 1 to 1,000, but the catch would be to have no duplicates in the column.

It has been several years since I worked with Excel and I am sure this can be done with a macro, but I am not sure how to go about it right now.

## Random Numbers Without Duplicates

Mar 12, 2008

Is there a way to generate random numbers between 1 and 63 without any duplicates?

## How To Obtain 6 Numbers In A Cell With No Duplicates

Jan 29, 2014

At any rate, for a statistics experiment, I need a way to obtain precisely 6 random, numeric values in a cell, separated by commas, with no duplicates.

For example, if cell A1 contains the following: 7, 12, 14, 7, 14, 3, then I need to remove the duplicate(s) -- in this case, the extra 7 and the extra 14. After the two duplicates are removed, I then would have to replace with two more values (non-duplicates, of course).

Here are the restrictions, in addition to having no duplicate values appear:

* The first 5 values need to be randomly drawn from values between 1 and 75, inclusive.

* The 6th value needs to be randomly drawn from values between 1 and 15 (inclusive).

* It would be nice - but not necessary - to have the first 5 values sorted in ascending order. For example: 7, 12, 14, 29, 70, 3.

## Highlight Duplicates Positive And Negative Numbers

Feb 8, 2011

I have one debit and one credit column. I want to higlight duplicates, with positive and negative values.

Like this.

Column A
5000
1000
10000
3000

Column B
- 10000
-5000
-3000
-2000

I know how to do the conditional formating to find duplicates when there is only positive or negative numbers, but i don't know how to match both positive and negative numbers.

## Review List Of Numbers And Identify Duplicates In Order

Feb 24, 2014

- I have a list of 8 digit numbers in Column A sorted small to large
- Some of the 8 digit numbers are duplicated.
- In Column B I would like to have more of a combination of countif and listing the duplicates in order (1 for the first dup in the column, 2 for the 2nd, etc.)

Example of what I'd like to see

Column A Column B
123456781
123456782
132546841
685036541
985413561
985413562
985413563

As you can see if the number in column A is on the list one time column B would show a 1If the number is shown two times (the first time it shows up will show a 1 the second will show a 2) If the number is shown 3 times (the first time it shows up will show a 1 the second will show a 2, the third tiem would show a 3)

## Different Long Numbers Formatted As Text Are Considered Duplicates

Jan 9, 2014

I have an issue with long numbers (16 digits). To display them correctly in excel I formatted the cells as text. This part works fine, but now for some reason conditional formatting marks different numbers as duplicates.

In my case 3081281170122602 and 3081281170122601 are considered as duplicates by excel.

See the file attached. duplikaat.xlsx
