VBA Comparing Two Sheets

Mar 30, 2009

I have 4000 activities in the rows; I want to know if there are changes occur (e.g. duration, dates, quantities & etc.).

I would like to compare the two sheets with the same Columns and Identifiers, Say sheet1 and Sheet2 and I want the result to be in Sheet3. Sheet1 is the target & Sheet2 is the current changes.

Is it possible? What will be my code?

Comparing Two Different Sheets

Jun 2, 2009

I’m trying to figure out how to compare two different versions of a sheet with each other and to identify which lines has changed. Here is a simplified example:

>Microsoft Excel - post data.xls___Running: xl2002 XP : OS = Windows XP (F)ile (E)dit (V)iew (I)nsert (O)ptions (T)ools (D)ata (W)indow (H)elp (A)boutE4J4E5J5E6J6E7J7=BCDEFGHIJ3V1CONCATENATE V2Change check4123123 1012 No Change5456456 465Changed6789789 8 9Changed710 121012 123No ChangeSheet1 [HtmlMaker 2.42] To see the formula in the cells just click on the cells hyperlink or click the Name boxPLEASE DO NOT QUOTE THIS TABLE IMAGE ON SAME PAGE! OTHEWISE, ERROR OF JavaScript OCCUR.

When using this formula I get an error in cell J12 that reports a no change even though the values has changed. The error occurs due to the blank cell found in cell C7 but I can’t seem to find a way around the problem? (except for adding an if(cell=””;0;cell) before every cell which isn’t really practical in my actual data)

Furthermore my actual data has more the 10.000 lines and +30 columns so if the formula I use for change tracking can be done easier in any other way I would be happy to get some help? Maybe I should even consider a macro?

Comparing Columns Between Two Excel Sheets?

Oct 21, 2013

I do backups on a daily schedule. Given the spreadsheet called "A" which is a list of all clients and current backup policy as of last week, and the file "B" which is a snapshot list of servers in our supported environment, does someone have a clever way to determine which systems are in "B" that are not in "A"? The clients are listed in column M in spreadsheet A and this column may have multiple client names listed due to a policy that includes multiple clients in the netbackup schedule.

Comparing Two Excel Sheets With Unique Keys

Aug 18, 2009

I need to compare the 2 sheets with respect to a unique key. Once the unique key matches , I need to compare 5 other columns of the two excel sheet.

Note : There could be missing rows in either of the excel , so its necessary that we look up 2nd sheet completely to find the unique key.

For Example : In sheet 1 : The unique key is preent in column B and in Sheet 2: The unique key is present in column I. Once we locate the rows in both the sheets with the unque key matching, we would need to comapre , columns A, C, E AND F of the sheet 1 with columns A,B,C AND D of sheet 2.

We need to report if all the data matches when the unique key is same.

Excel 2007 :: Comparing String Between Two Sheets

Oct 30, 2012

I have the following code which compares a string between two sheets. First sheet is 'data', second is 'saw'. I'm trying to copy an array of numbers (energy consumption for each hour of the day) based on machine ID and date (hence the compare string). How to modify it so it will copy the array of 24 number, not just the first number?

I have a few worksheets 'saw', drill, lathe. So I am using ActiveSheet, so I can run the same macro as all data is in the 'data' worksheet.

Sub test_copy()
Dim a, i As Long, txt As String
a = Sheets("data").Range("a1").CurrentRegion.Value
With CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
.CompareMode = 1

[Code] .......

Comparing Data In Two Different Sheets And Marking Matches

Jan 9, 2014

I have a huge lists of names that I need to work with. The first is a list of all employees. The second is a list of those employees who have submitted their monthly report. In theory every record should be a match. I need to compare the lists and mark the people who are missing their monthly report in the main list of all employees.

Not sure how to set this up in Excel

Sheet 1: Column A - All employees names, Columns B-M: used to show whether a report has been submitted.
Sheet 2-13 (July, Aug., Sept., through June): Column A - employees who have submitted their report.

I need Sheet 1 to show either all of the missing records across all the months or it can show the ones that have been received. Either will work.

Comparing Two Cells

Nov 16, 2009

Is there a way to compare two cells and return true if they are the same, false if different? There is text and numerical data. As a side note, can anybody recommend a lightweight reference so I can sit for an evening or two and at least get an idea of what excel can do?

VBA: Comparing A Value To Several Different Cells

Jun 8, 2006

I need to compare a value to several cells and print the value into a new cell if and only if the value is not in any of the cells I am comparing to.

Say cells A1, A4, A8 and A12 contains different numbers. I want to compare a value, say 120, to the values of the above cells and if it is not contained in one of those cells I want to enter 120 into cell A16. If A1, A4, A8 or A12 contains the value 120 I want to leave A16 blank or write 0 to it.

Is there an easy way of doing this? Right now I am using a if-test for each of the cells I am comparing to, but this gets very messy as the number of cells increases.

Comparing Two Cells With Another

Mar 16, 2007

how to compare two cells (say, today's date with the date an order was supposed to be sent out), with a third cell that either has a tick in it, or nothing. If there's an easier way to do this other than VB code, I haven't found it. I tried conditonal formatting but it wouldn't let me have a condition in which it just checked the third cell, it needed to compare it with the selected one.

Comparing Multiple Cells

Feb 11, 2009

I have two excel files. The data is arranged by column. I want to take 3 or more cells (from three different columns) from a particular row and match them up with three cells (in 3 different columns but in the same row). The three cells should be in the same row. However the matching row may appear in a different order in each of the two lists. When Excel finds a match, I want it to return true. How can I go about doing something like this?

I have attached a file explaining what I mean. I am trying to match the three cells in list one with three cells in one of the rows in list 2. However the number of cells in each list is different and there are some cells in list 2 which are not in list 1 and vice versa. There may also be extra columns, which I have not included for the sake of simplicity.

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.

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 Text In Cells..?

Jan 26, 2005

I have a spreadsheet that has long text sentences in each cell. I have a 2nd spreadsheet which is a slightly updated version of the first spreadsheet. The slight updates consisted of editing the odd word here or there out of the first spreadsheet.

Unfortunately, I didn't keep track of the changes I made, and I need to know what they are.

It's easy to tell if a change has been made, simply by comparing the cells. But I can't find an easy way to find out exactly what change was made. Comparing the cells a line at a time is very time consuming.

Comparing Cells And Return Number?

Apr 23, 2013

Thing is, I have an excel sheet for a private competition in sports games. How can I do a function, that automatically calcutes points for every "bet" against the game result?

For example:

If game finishes 4-3 I'd like to compare it for every players guessed score and give points according to this:

1. If the bet is completely correct (4-3) -> Return 10 (points). In case of tie (like 3-3, -> Return 20 (points)
2. If the bet has a correct winner, with correct goals for eather team (4-x / x-3) -> Return 4 (points)
3. If the bet has a correct winner (home/visitor) -> Return 3 (points)
4. If the bet has incorrect winner but amount of goals for eather team correct -> Return 1 (point)
5. If the bet is completely wrong -> Return 0 (points)

At least for me, this sounds more like rocket science but just wanted to check if this is anyway doable.

Comparing List Of Cells To Each Other Using Macros

Jan 28, 2010

I have a list of authors for about 20 papers. These Papers are listed in sequential order from 1999 to 2005.

I want to track the number of similar authors from paper to paper. Thus I am attempting to create a macros that has the Papers listed sequentially when they were published and the authors for each paper, with the authors name in each cell. I want to create a macros that will compare the Author Cells associated to lets say the Fifth Paper with the Author Cells for the Fourth Paper (the Previous Paper). So that if certain authors come up in the Fifth Paper that were in the Fourth Paper, the # will be noted.

I also want this macros to compare all the Author Cells that have appeared in the past with that of the author cells of the (N) paper excluding the (N-1) Paper, and just note the # of occurences. So using the previous example. If we are talking about the Fifth Paper, it will look through Papers #1-#3 for any matching keywords and note the number.

I have attached my spreadsheet to make it more clearer. For some papers there are more than 20 authors as well just to note.
