Excel - Check For Duplicate Data When Populating A Cell?
Jan 27, 2014
I have a big database of customers, each one has a unique reference number. They are spread accross a bunch of different tabs (21 in total to be exact)
One issue I have had is staff entering a customer whos already in the database, causing a duplicate entry. I dont need excel to tell us where the entry is, just to give some kind of indicator it already exists. I thought I may be able to use data validation/conditionality to turn the cell fill Red when it already exists in the data base.
The reason I think that method would be best, is that the sheets that data is entered on are seperate that the master sheet then pulls the data through from. Its the master sheet that would need to indicate a duplicate has been entered, as thats the only sheet where the entire database can be viewed.
I've got a column of client company names and because it is based from accounts, the companies names appear many times. I just need to populate a new column with unique names, so I have found a formula to do this:
However when I do this, I CtrlShiftEnter and drag to copy that down, and it's just a copy of the original list - client names are appearing on my new list multiple times. I don't see how this doesn't work... I'm using 2013.
I have an excel sheet with data from Column 'A' to 'S'.
I want to identify duplicate entries in Column 'J' and from those identified columns I want to further search Column 'K', highlight the matching text and then fill text in Column 'L' should have the missing data after matching the 'A' and 'K' cells.excel_duplicate_entries.png
I am trying to auto-populate a table with data looked up from another sheet. The functions I have used are: Data Validation, vlookup, ISerror and if functions.
Cell B4 in sheet2 uses Data Validation to pick data from sheet1 (in this case "tax") and auto populate the table with the information- Job type, Name, employee type and Job title. If i change from Tax to HR, the table should get auto-populated with the correct information.
I have setup vlookups but I am unable to get it working. I am a novice at using vlookups (I learn it just 2 days ago) and am struggling to get it work. I am not even sure if vlookup is the right tool to get this job done.
I'm trying to populate a table based on two different criteria in a another table. On is based on a date and the other the number of a unit. I'm trying to get the data in sheets Week 1 and Week 2 into the format in sheet Example. Is there a way to create a series of functions, filters, etc that I could use to create a macro to do multiple sheets or at least a whole sheet at once? I've been trying to think through it with my limited knowledge of filters and functions
Here is the file with an example and I'm using Excel 2007: Example.xls
I have a userform which requires the user to enter the date a training course was completed. Initially I used DatePicker as I was running Excel 2010 and had that working, however the workbook I am creating will be used on about a dozen machines, all of which have different versions of Excel. To avoid needing calendar Add-ins to be downloaded and installed for this feature I decided to go the vba created calendar route. I am using one I found on this forum: [URL] .....
It works well for me using the example spreadsheet provided in the post but I am having some difficulty incorporating it into my code. I believe I have imported the appropriate forms and modules because I can get the date populate to the Label Box on my userform but when I try to put the Date into the spreadsheet along with other data such as name and course duration, the name and course duration populate but the date cell remains blank and execution completes without error.
I have tried playing around with the data type thinking I had some issue using the .Value attribute with a String but .Text gives me an error as does converting from String to Number format.
I will attach the workbook but for a quick look, the portion of the code I believe that is not working is in here:
I'm trying to auto populate a calender style sheet in Excel 2010 based on data from a Work Schedule sheet. The work schedule sheet contains a list of jobs, with each row representing a different job. There is a column for the start date (e.g. 25/04/14) and a column for the end date (e.g. 26/04/14). There are other columns which select resources such as people and vehicles. Each resource may appear on any one of several columns for each row, e.g. Site Operative 1, Site Operative 2 etc.
On the calendar sheet, in which one cell represents one day (e.g. 25/04/14), all the dates are shown along the top going right and all the resources are shown on the left going down.
On the calender sheet, in every cell I want a formula that will look at the Work Schedule sheet and see if that particular resource is being used on that particular date. If it does, the cell can display information from another cell such as the job number or job name to which the resource is assigned; if it doesn't, the resource isn't being used so it can display "Free" or "Available".
I want to create a sort of complex logging system for my work.
As of right now i use a simple temple. Column A has the job number, column B has drawing numbers. Each cell in column B has multiple drawings. So for example cell B2 might contain 101, 102, 103, 104 and so on or something like 101...104. Depending on the situation. The ... means drawings 101 thru 104. What i want to do is have a second sheet that has Column A be the job number but column B has just one drawing #, so an example would be . A1 = 10939 and B1 = 105, 107, 109..111. Sheet 2 would then have A1 = 10939, B1 = 105, A2 = 10939, B2 = 107, A3 = 10939, B3 = 109, A4 = 10939, B4 = 110, and so on. Is something like this possible.
I have a userform that I'm using to add data to a worksheet, with the following
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim OutSH As Worksheet Set OutSH = Sheets("Sheet1")
OutSH.Cells(nextrow2, 1).Value = Surname.Value OutSH.cells(nextrow2,2).value = ID.value OutSH.cells(nextrow2,3).value = Date.value ...... I need to ensure that duplicate entries are not made for the same person on the same date. The ID is unique to each person.
IF statement that can check for a duplicate and then come up with a dialouge box with some custom text, and then exiting the sub?
I am entering data into one workbook 1 (WB1) that contains a worksheet for every month. I manually extract some of the data from WB1 and put it into workbook 2 (WB2), which also contains a worksheet for every month. Is there a way to populate WB2 from WB1? For example, I want cell B5 from WB1 to automatically populate B5 in WB2, and so on. I have to update this every day and would like to way to automate it to cut down on data entry errors since they need to match. And both of these files are stored in SharePoint for others to access if need be.
I have attached a sample of the workbooks (yet only have one month in each of these wb).
I am trying to set up a spreadsheet that pulls all the data from an existing spreadsheet on a networked drive. The spreadsheet on the drive gets updated occasionally by about 10 different people. I am trying to set up a duplicate of it on a local machine so that a single extra column can be added that no one else can see.
So far I am able to get the data from the spreadsheet using data connections, but it won't copy across the comments or any of the colour formatting. The colour is not as important, but the comments are vital. We use Microsoft office 2007 here, on windows 7 enterprise.
I have a long (about 180 000 rows) list of part numbers, descriptions, prices and quantities. There are many duplicate part numbers. I need to go through and find the duplicates, add all their quantities into one cell and delete the remaining duplicates. I have used conditional formatting to find the duplicates easier but cannot use the remove duplicates button as it will delete the whole row and I need the quantity information in each row.
Any formula or macro I can set up to search the part number column (F) for duplicates and add the figures in the quantity column (J) and THEN delete the duplicate part number rows?
Maybe I need to put the new combined information in another sheet?
Basically, I have a sheet and I would like to delete the entire row if the data in column G is the same as that in column H. The data is text if that matter. I've tried to figure out the VBA code for it, but my knowledge is severely limited. The spreadsheet is excel 2010.
Hi guys/gurls.. is there a way i can get the following check against range for orders which give result as invoiced(if within the range), duplicated(if 2 or more than 2 are on the orders list) & missing (which on not in the orders when checked against the range).
I have a spreadsheet that will export records when I "click" a button, to a spreadsheet on a network drive.
I would like to attach some code that will check to see if a duplicate record is going to be written to the network drive, and if so, alert the user that they are about to create a duplicate . If it is a duplicate, give the user the option to overwrite the existing record.
Ex. I export the results for account 12345.....Account 12345 is now written to an outside sheet.
User2 logs in and works with customer 12345, w/out knowing that someone has already worked with this account, presses the export button.....This is the trigger point for what I want to happen. At this point when it locates a dupe in the outside spreadsheet it will prompt the user too make some chouces .
find attached the code I would like to attach this to...

I've been assigned to develop a workbook that autopopulates a different workbook but they wanted it so the second macro is never messed with and the information is only entered once. Here is the macro i developed
Code: Sub Monthly() Dim wbthis As Workbook Dim wsthis As Worksheet, wsm As Worksheet
Now The area in red is where the macro writes into the form. My thing is that I want to set up a check so there isn't duplicated entries. This is how the check would work. First it would match up any excisiting entries with JobNo and then check to see if the JobDate was the same. If both are the same then it would check Waste or CutTime, either one would work. If they didn't match, then those cells would be overwritten. If nothing matched then it would put in the new entry.
I want to Check the Duplicate Name in the Excel Sheet Using VB Macros ****** name="ProgId" content="Word.Document">****** name="Generator" content="Microsoft Word 11">****** name="Originator" content="Microsoft Word 11">
If the 1 nd Row Contains Name as " 101 Calif " and the Value For Vb is 77 2 nd Row Contains the Same Name "101 Calif " and the Value for this is 2.
Now I want the Output As Follows
101 Calif and Column 3 values is 79(77+2) and Column 5 Value is 105 and Column 7 Value is 105 and Column 9 is 100 and Column 11 is 3 and Column 13 th Value is % Value . (10+30/2 = 40/2= 20 )

I have a command button that copies a template worksheet and names it with a date that the user chooses. Problem is, the user can choose the same date more than once. So, I need to have the command button check for all the sheet names, and if it finds a duplicate, prompt the user to enter some text to concatenate to the original sheet name, therefore making it's name unique. My existing code is as follows:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
MsgBox "Please be patient. Creating a new Week Ending sheet can take several minutes!"
I have a userform that I use for data entry with lots of combo boxes, list boxes and text boxes
One thing i haven't cracked yet is to check for duplicates against two matching fields
If a user (for example) enters 'SAB' (which will be stored in column A) and then 'UK' (which will be stored in column B) and there is already an exact match for both, then I need to inform the user that a matching record already exists
The following is OK: (the dots below are meant to illustrate spaces between the columns!!) Col(A).....Col(B) SAB........UK SAB........USA SAB........Italy
I have multiple worksheets of computer equipment, each worksheet is a group/department. Column H is the serial number column and the entries have to be unique. I have managed to create the code below which does find duplicates across worksheets.
When error message pops up about which sheet the duplicate already exists on, the duplicate entry is deleted and the cell is blank but the error checks again and reports the blank existing on another worksheet and then it is stuck in a loop. How can I ignore the blank or null.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim I As Integer I = Sheets.Count If Not Intersect(Target, Range("H2:H200")) Is Nothing Then Do Until I = 0 If Application.IsError(Application.Match(Target, Sheets(I).Range("H2:H200"), 0)) Then Else MsgBox "That entry already exists in the " + Sheets(I).Name + " sheet" Target.ClearContents End If I = I - 1 Loop End If End Sub
What im needing is something that will duplicate each row based on Column F as shown below... However I also need the duplicate row numbers added to Column G and then the original row deleted... I will try and show you an example of the input/output i would like to achieve: (also the first row can be ignored it will all be headers)
Basically I have manually generated word documents based on a spreadsheet. Now, I need to countercheck the contents of the word documents with another spreadsheet i.e. make sure the courses in the word document for a particular student is same as that reflected on the spread sheet. Is it possible to write a macro for this? I'm a beginner and I'm waaay out of my depth. I have attached sample documents and spreadsheets.
The link to the documents are as follows: Macro to check data from Word documents against an excel spread sheet
So I have an 2 ActiveX button and 2 ActiveX checkboxes. I have it set up so that the Split button will enable when both checkboxes are checked. The ClearAll button has a code/macro in it that will check the "Cleared All" checkbox when the Clearall button is pressed.
My problem is with the "Populated Data" checkbox. I want it to check/uncheck itself if there is anything in Range("A1") of a tab called "Data".
I have a sheet (see Sheet 1) from a report we run which lists the following information: Personnel Number, Amount, Wage Type. This is generated for 1000's of employees, with each personnel number being repeated several times in column A.
I am trying to pull specific data to another sheet (see Sheet 2), which would ideally generate the sum of "Amount' for a specific wage type for each personnel number. The issue is is that there may be dplicates of the wage type for each ID number (which is also repeated).
For example, the total salary amount on sheet 2 for ID#12345678 would be 0, while for #9876543 it would be 1250. Is there a formula I could use on sheet 2 column B that would generate this?
