If column A(Company), B(Load Date), and E(Amount) for record 35 in worksheet one, match the same columns for a record in worksheet two, both records are deleted/highlighted/marked with an x in an additional column/anything.
Alternately, I can combine the data in both worksheets into one large worksheet, if that would make the solution easier. And or adding a column that idenifies which record came from which report.
Basically I have two similar reports; each contain a few rows of transactions that the other does not, I need to separate the matching transactions from the unique transactions, in order to balance the two.
I have tried using the Remove Duplicates function but it saves one of the matching records (they should add an opiton to delete matching records aswell keeping only truly unique records), I dont understand how to work Conditional Formatting to get it to do what I want, I dont know macros, or vlookups.
