# Comparing Two Different Price Lists?

Jan 6, 2014

I'm trying to set a formula that will calculate the price difference between two identical items in two different sheets. The items' order is not the same and each list includes some different items along the identical ones.

## Lookups & Lists: Price Appear In Cell A3

Feb 24, 2007

I have three cells, let's call them A1, A2, A3. Cell A2 contains a list of products. I need to be able to have the price for these products appear in cell A3. The prices vary based on the contents of cell A1. There is a different list of prices for each different value in A1. I've tried to figure out a way to use a lookup, but can't seem to wrap my brain around it.

Contents of A1 determines unit prices in A3.
Contents of A2 is a list of products.
Contents of A3 is pricing for list products in A2, but pricing is controlled by content of A1.

## Formatting Multiple Vendor Price Lists?

Apr 20, 2011

We currently have a few hundred vendors we order from for a retail business. We receive price lists in excel format, but they all differ in how they are formatted, i.e. one may have a column header of "UPC" and the next may say "UPC ID" and they may be in different columns. We currently format a handfull of these price lists so they have the same headers so we can easily compare costs, margins, etc, but we don't have the resources to do many more than this.

## Comparing The Lists

Jun 9, 2009

I have two Excel lists. One master list (list A) contains all our email addresses from our customers. The other list (list B) contains a list of people who do NOT want to recieve emails. How do I take the emails from list B (there are 1,200 of them) and compare them automatically to list A? Basically if any email address from list B appears in list A, I want it to delete in list A.

## Comparing Two Lists?

Apr 3, 2012

I have two lists of data and am trying to write a formula that will return a "1" if the second list firstly contains one or more entries that are not in the first list and secondly the fourth cell on the same row of one or more of the entries not in the first list contains an "F".

The first list is in a sheet called "Select" cells J2:J7 and the second list is in a sheet called "Model" cells A2:A50. The second list will occasionally contain blank cells.

I have tried to use a combination of COUNTIF and VLOOKUP but am struggling to make any progress.

## Comparing Two Lists ..

Oct 1, 2007

I have two lists in the same sheet. List one spread over 3 columns contains all the possible postcodes available to my job, the second list once again over 3 columns contains all the postcodes my job is currently using.

How can I find out the Postcodes that I am not currently using from the available list. I am sure it is a simple Lookup command, but cant for the life of me figure it out.

## Comparing Two Lists

May 9, 2008

I have a worksheet that contains six columns (A-F). I am trying to compare the values found in column F (~50 values) with the values found in column E (~1500 values). Both columns contain unique values. The majority of values in Column F are contained within Column E. The goal is to run a function that returns all rows in column E that contain a value found in Column F. I've been trying VLookups and what not, but my overall goal is to match up all values found in Column F with the appropriate row that contains the same value in Column E.

First Name
Last Name
Utility
Email
Account Number

## Comparing Two Lists ....

Apr 30, 2009

I have a list of names, some of which occur several times, with values attributed to the names in the adjacent column. I want a list in which the names occur once and the all the values belonging to the name appear in the row the name is in. I have code which almost does it, but not quite.

My data looks like this example:

fred 10
dave 1
jill 4
fred 11
marc 74

I want:

dave 1,
fred 10,11
jill 4,
marc 74,

dave
fred
jill
marc

and then run my code.

My code is:

Option Explicit
Sub Compare()
Dim ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet
Dim i As Long, j As Long, LR As Long
Set ws1 = Sheets("Deutsch")
Set ws2 = Sheets("Deutsch2")

It works fine for a while, then gives me an 'error 1004 object or application error' at always the same point, when it gets to row 144 in the destination list.

The editor tells me I should debug the line 'If ws1.Cells(i, 5) = ws2.Cells(j, 5)' in the second 'Do'-block in the code.

## 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 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 Filtered Lists

Jan 20, 2007

I'm trying to compare filtered lists across several worksheets. What I'd like to do is:

1) compare the filtered list from Sheet 1 with the filtered lists from Sheets 2-5, and if an item from Sheet 1's filtered list appears on ALL the other filtered lists, said item will be pasted to a new list on Sheet 6, under the heading "Sheet 1".

2) I need to do this for every item on every filtered list, ultimately creating five new lists on Sheet 6 (i.e. after going through sheet 1's filtered list, move on to sheet 2 and compare each item to Sheets 1, 3, 4, 5, and qualifying items pasted in Sheet 6 under heading "Sheet 2", etc.).

## Comparing Lists Of Names

Jan 21, 2010

My boss has given me a spreadsheet to put together for him, unfortunately i am not really an expert on Excel and i am at a loss as to how to do this.
This is what he wants:-

Column A : Policy Surname
Column B: Policy Forname
Column C: D.OB

Column F : Policy Surname
Column G; Policy Forename
Column H: D.OB

He wants to be able to cross check all the names in A with the names in F, and if any matches then also compare Column B with Column G. Again, if any matches then finally check Column C with Column H and pull the results

I would be extremely grateful if someone had an idea on this and could possibly give me a formula that could do this, or am i asking too much from Excel?

## Populating A Cell When Comparing Two Different Lists

Oct 10, 2008

I have a list of names and a seperate list of names with emails.

In column A there is a last name, column B a first name, and then for the second list in column D there is an email.

I need to tell Excel that if column A and Column B both have a replication on the list, then in Column D populate it with the email address on the list.

I know this is confusing so I have attached a sample of my spreadsheet. The email address is in yellow and I need to have it copied to the cells in white. The list is almost 14,500 lines long and it would take forever manually.

## Comparing Lists, Formula Not Working

Feb 18, 2010

I have 2 lists. One column has a about 200 values of 7 digit numbers. The second column has about 500 cells with text. This text should include one of the 4 digit numbers from the first list. If it doesn't, I want to purge it.

The 7 digit numbers always appear in the same spot in the column 2 figures. So say the number I'm looking for is 1122 and the second list has a cell with L2871122BD. Perhaps there is an easier way to do this, but my plan was to.

create a 3rd column that has formula =mid(B1,5,4) which should isolate the 4 digit value i want to compare to. Then create a 4th column that has the formula =ISNUMBER(MATCH("*"&C1&"*",A:A,0)) to check the newly created MID number to the numbers in column one. Afterward I would simply arange from small to large and delete all of the false entries in column 2.

The only problem is, my ISNUMBER function doesn't work when referencing from my MID formula to column 1. If I do the match and compare the smaller number in column 1 to the larger in column 2, it does work. Is there an easier way to delete or highlight entries in Column 2 whose middle 4 digits don't show up in column 1? Here is an example of what I'm working with.

## Vlookup Comparing 2 Text Lists

Dec 2, 2008

I have two separate columns of text and want to identify similarities/matches. vlookup false is good for exact matches but vlookup true is too approximate - is there a way to hone vlookup true to match first 4 or 5 text characters rather than just the first? If vlookup no good for this what is best function for identifying approximate matches in two separate text lists?

## Comparing Two Lists Of Email Addresses

Jun 28, 2012

I have two columns of email addresses. Column A is the roster of users' emails that we have been keeping; Column B is the list of email addresses pulled from the system.

I need to run a match to find out who from our list (Column A) does not have a registered email address in the system (Column B).

## Comparing Lists In 2 Columns For A Match

May 3, 2009

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?

## Editing Data And Comparing Lists

Jun 17, 2009

I'm currently working on sorting a column of data from a PDF file into separate columns to later compare to another sheet. I'm having a few problems getting the data into a workable format, and also don't know how to compare to the other file.

Ultimately, I want the data in columns that look like this:
Name, City, State, Zip, \$123.00, mm/dd/yy

Currently it looks like this:

A
1 Name
2 City State Zip
3 \$123.00 mm/dd/yy

The sheets I'm working with are thousands of rows long, with these three rows of data repeating for every person. I have two problems with them, however:

1. I ultimately need each of those pieces of information into a seperate cell, in separate columns. I've been transposing the data then doing "Text to Columns" to get it from three separate rows in Column A to one row in Columns A, B, C etc.

The problem with this is the names aren't always uniform. Sometimes there's Mr. or Mrs. in front of them, sometimes they have a middle initial, or an "esq." behind them, which completely messes up the "Text to Columns." Is there a better way to break them up into separate cells?

2. Secondly, not all of the names are individuals- some are businesses or charities. I want to remove all of these (and the two lines of data that go with each of them), so I only have individual people. Do you have any idea of how to make excel know the difference between, for example, "Mr. John Smith" and "Smith and Sons Realty"?

3. Lastly Once I have all of this data spread out into the different columns
(Last Name, First Name, City, State, Zip, Date, Amount), I need to compare it to another list. Basically, I've got one list of data configured in a similar way, and I want to identify any repeats between the two lists. I know that excel has a way to delete repeats, but what I need is a way to delete everything BUT repeats.

## Finding Unique Names When Comparing Two Lists

Jan 25, 2010

I have two different lists of names. One is about 3000 names long and the other has about 3500 names. I want to identify the 500 people that are not in the first list that are in the second. If there anyway to do this? I was going to put them in A-Z order and then go through and using an IF(A=B,"yes","no") and go through and insert new cell when ever it says no till it says yes BUT the functions start messing up when I insert a new row and it's taking way too long.

## Comparing Three Lists - Identify In 3 Separate Columns

Jul 9, 2013

I am working on a project, I have three different lists that I want to compare and I want to identify in 3 separate columns which titles are found on which list.

For example:

Title List 1List 2List 3
ACAROLOGIA x
ACCIDENT ANALYSIS AND PREVENTION x
ACROCEPHALUS x
ACS CHEMICAL BIOLOGY x x x
ACS CHEMICAL NEUROSCIENCE x x x
ACS COMBINATORIAL SCIENCE x x
ACS MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY LETTERS x x
ACS SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY x x x

## Indicating A Partial Match When Comparing Two Lists

Aug 15, 2013

From the attached file.
Column 1 is a file name
Column 2 is a list of file names (but some of the files have been split into -A and -B parts or suffixed with an A or B

I need to highlight in column B, if the exact file name in column A exists

Example:
Column A: BSDS-0001
Column B: does not have this exactly instead it has BSDS-0001-A and BSDS-0001-B

I need some indication/highlighting that BSDS-0001 does exist on column B

So an indication that the whole of the file name in column A appears partially in column B. I have tried using max character lengths searches etc but cannot get an accurate way of doing this.

## 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

## Comparing 2 Lists (names) And Finding Missing Values

Jan 23, 2014

I have a list of over 2000 names and need to establish which names from column A appear in Column B, as well as which do not appear in column B.

I attach an example : NameCheck.xlsx‎

## Formula To Generate Unique List Of Missing Values By Comparing Two Lists?

Mar 28, 2014

Is it possible to have a formula that generate a Unique list (List 1 and List 2) of Missing values in List 2 by comparing two lists? Something like this

List 1 List 2 Missing in List 2
1 1 3
3 4 6
5 5
6 6

## Comparing 2 Lists And Counting Data From The First Worksheet To Fill Up A Second Worksheet

Aug 22, 2014

I've got a spreadsheet with 2 worksheets in it.

On the first one we've got:

Name of the agent | petition REf num | Task

John Doe | XXXX-YYYY | NCO
John Doe | | RIL
John Doe | XERT-WWWW | RMT
Jane Doe | QSZE-AQWC | RIL

On the second worksheet:

Complete list of agents | number of petitions | Status

John Doe | 2 | OK
Jane Doe | 1 | [BLANK]

I want to be able to fill in the second worksheet automatically. For each agent in my worksheet 2, I want to check if they appear in worksheet 1 and if so count the number of petitions related.

I don't know where to start

## Excel 2010 :: Multiplying Price By Variable Number Of Years And Annual Compounding Interest To Price

Sep 5, 2012

I need J22 to multiply based on years in B22 AND increase 5% for each of those years (compounding) after two years (excludes year 1 from 5% increase). In addition the cell needs to remain blank if D22 is blank. B22 = 1, then the stockprice needs to remain the same, and only increase by 5% after year 1.

Currently...
B22 = a number of years indicated by the formula: =IF(A22="","",DATEDIF(A22,I3,"y"))
J22 =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(D22,stockprices,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(D22,stockprices,2,FALSE))

Example:

If J22 stockprice lookup is \$1000.00, and the number of years listed in B22 is 6, then the reported value in J22 needs to be \$1494.40.

## Calculate The Implied Volatility Which Minimizes The Sum Of Squared Differences Between The Observed Market Price And The Model Price For Each Day

Jun 9, 2008

I have calculated the implied volatility for different single options using the newton raphson method. But, I also need to calculate the implied volatility which minimizes the sum of squared differences between the observed market price and the model price for each day. I guess one needs to use vectors (jacobian matrix) to do this, but I do not know how to expand the code to be able to do this. Anyone have any idea how this can be done? I have attached the [code] I have used to calculate the implied volatility for one option.

## Lookups For An Item's Price From A Price List

Jan 4, 2010

The analysis basically has 2 data components to it:
The 1st part, is a basic transaction list of shopping items bought through the year. Each transaction's shopping item also has the quantity of that item purchased at that time.

The 2nd part, is a pricing sheet for all the different types of shopping items. The pricing sheet has different prices for different quantities at which the item is purchased.

What I am trying to do is to find the relevant price for shopping item, which depends on not only what the item is, but also the quantity. In point form, it should follow the logic below:

1) Identify the item in the shopping list (worksheet 1) from the list of prices (worksheet 2)

2) Find quantity in the prices worksheet that is closest to the quantity in the shopping list (i.e. where the difference between the quantity on transaction list and the quantity on the pricing sheet is the least)

3) Pull the price for this "closest quantity"

I have uploaded a worksheet showing the structure of that data.

Is there some VB code I need to do this, or can it just be a few simple formulas?

## Copy The Current Price Back To Sheet1. The Current Price Needs To Be Pasted Back Into Sheet1 (next To The Existing Price)

Jul 24, 2006

All data is located within one book. I have two sheets with material codes in each sheet which include pricing (existing and current)

Sheet1 (has existing material codes plus existing pricing) Has about 1200 lines
Sheet2 (has current material codes plus current pricing), has about 36000 lines

I need to cross check if the material code (taken from sheet1) are still available in sheet2, and if they are, copy the current price back to sheet1. The current price needs to be pasted back into sheet1 (next to the existing price). If the material code doesn't exist (for whatever reason, in sheet2), the program needs to move onto the next line and leave the current price for that material code blank. The program should finish once all the lines in sheet1 are completed. I have attached a sample of what I'm trying to do,

## Looking For The Closest Price To A Reference Price

Feb 12, 2010

I have have a large array of prices (across rows) and am looking for the closest price to match a price that I have been provided with. It's a basic benchmarking exercise on a row by row basis....and the price can be positive or negative. Is there a clean way to reference the closest price?

I have come across a fair amount of solutions, but none worked optimally - particularly the =INDEX(Data,MATCH(MIN(ABS(Data-Target)),ABS(Data-Target),0)) approach....it just didn't work for some lines, and only worked for values less than source price in other instances.

I would also like to reference the source on the next column.
