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 Two Worksheets ....

Sep 8, 2007

have been trying to write a VB macro to compare two spreadsheets. Here is what I need help achieving....

Compare Sheet1 and Sheet2. Data exists in rows that have a unique identifier in one column.

If unique ID (with row of data) exists in Sheet1 and NOT Sheet2, add row from Sheet1 to Sheet3 and mark "REMOVE" in new column next to row.

If unique ID (with row of data) exists in Sheet2 and NOT in Sheet1, add row from Sheet2 to Sheet 3 and mark "ADD" in new column next to row.

If unique ID (with row of data) exists in both Sheet1 and Sheet2, take row from Sheet2 and place in Sheet3 and mark "UPDATE" in new column next to row.

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.

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?

Conditional Formatting - Comparing Worksheets

Dec 5, 2008

I have 2 worksheets - one is a monthly update, the other is last month's data.

I want to highlight the changes on the monthly update sheet using conditional formatting.

I named the columns as ranges on the "last month" worksheet, and then used =Match(A1,Jan,0) (wheras Jan is the range on the "last month" worksheet where A1 resides)

What formula do you use to say "if A1 does NOT match a value in range "jan", then format it"?

Comparing Worksheets - With Some Items Deleted

Jun 13, 2006

I have a task that I thought would be quite simple but I canít find a solution in any of the books I have or on this forum.

I receive a list of companies each day who owe money, in Worksheet1. The next day I receive an updated list in Worksheet2. Those companies who have now paid have been deleted from the list. I want to compare the two lists and highlight those companies in Worksheet1 who are no longer in Worksheet 2.

Iíve tried to do this by getting the values in the list in Worksheet2 to loop through the list in Worksheet1 but canít make it happen.

Iíd be really grateful if someone was able to help me with the code I need.

Comparing Cell Values In Two Worksheets

May 11, 2007

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

Remove Duplicate Information After Comparing 2 Worksheets?

Jul 3, 2012

I have a file with 2 worksheets:

The "On" worksheet represents ALL of the students that LIVE on campus (freshman, sop****re, juniors, seniors)

The "JS" worksheet represents all the juniors and seniors going to school here

I need to know which of the JS live OFF campus.

So.....I need a macro that will compare the JS worksheet to the On worksheet and create a new worksheet called Off and populate it with those JS that are not in the On worksheet.

The "On" worksheet contains:

A B
Last First

The "JS" worksheet contains:

A B C D E F G
Last First Street Street2 City State NY

The new "Off" worksheet should contain the same columns as "JS"

Comparing Two Columns On Different Worksheets And Adding Rows Where Matches Occur

Jan 18, 2014

Essentially what I want to automate is a check through one list on the Sheets("Notes") in column A, with another column B on Sheets(template). If there is a match I want to insert a part of the row that the match occurred on Sheet("Notes"), and insert it above the row where the match occurred on Sheets(template).

Here is my code so far, currently I keep getting a "Application-defined or object defined error" on the line

VB:
Sheets("Notes").Range(Cells(i, 2), Cells(i, 11)).Copy
VB:
Sub add_notes(template As String)
Dim Rng As Range
Dim i As Integer

Comparing Entire Rows Within 2 Worksheets And Then Display Output In Another Worksheet Using VBA

Feb 6, 2014

I'm trying to compare 2 worksheets with the same headers(NAME, ADDRESS, CONTACT NO...). What codes should I use that when there is a duplicated row in worksheet A and worksheet B, it will be deleted and when there are 2 names with different addresses and/or contact no, the whole row in file A will be obtained. Output should also be in another worksheet. It goes like this.

worksheet A
NAME ADDRESS CONTACT NO
JOE ABC 123
MIL XYZ 567
NIK LMN 234
NED QRS 456

[Code]...

So the output should be:

worksheet C
NAME ADDRESS CONTACT NO
JOE ABC 123
MIL XYZ 567
NIK LMN 234
NED QRS 456
JIM JKL 345
SAM FGH 789

Is this possible in vba?

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 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.

Copy Cells / Range From Worksheets Positioned Between Two Worksheets

Jul 7, 2014

Let's say I have a workbook with 7 worksheets named, for example, "Instruction", "Begin", "Worksheet 1", "Worksheet 2", "Worksheet 3", "End", and "Data". (in that order)

What I want to do is run a macro to go to whatever worksheet that is in between "Begin" and "End" and copy, for example, cells $C$1:$D$10; then paste as formula into worksheet "Data" starting from cell C1 and then down a list (i.e., copied cells from "Worksheet 1" get pasted as formula into "Data" cells C1:D10; then copied cells from "Worksheet 2" get pasted as formula into "Data" cells C11:D20, and so on and so forth).

But if I were to add more worksheets (e.g., "Recipe" and "ToDo") positioned in between "Begin" and "End" and run the macro again, it'll either 1) re-copy all the formulas from the included worksheets back into "Data" including the formulas from the newly added/placed worksheets or 2) it'll add the formulas from the newly added/placed worksheets and paste into "Data" at the end of the list.

Can create the macro to run based on the position of worksheet, and not based on the name of worksheet, since ultimately there will probably be over 10 worksheets between "Begin" and "End".

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.
