Compare 2 Columns For Close Matches

Jul 3, 2007

I want to compare two columns (from two different files, but copied into a new sheet) for duplicates or identical entries. But here's the trick, each entry contains atleast a number of digits. I'm not quite sure how to find items that may be 80% identical (in the right order, but might be messing a digit, or there is a dash or a 'o' instead of a '0'). I know how to do it in C++ or Java, but not quite sure how to do it in VBA/macro. Here's an example of what I meant. Let's say column one has the following:

0244-34
9393-O0
3932-44

and second column has
939300
493384
938923

If I was comparing second column to first column, it can pick up the 9393-O0 one because it's close enough to 939300.

Match Category IDs To Campaign Names With Inexact VLookup Matches

Jul 2, 2014

I have several Campaign Names (about a thousand) and about 25000 categories (with ID's) to choose from and would like to assign the Category ID's to the Campaign Names without doing manual searches. My problem is that the names are not similar enough for vlookup and I didn't get any usable results with the fuzzy lookup add in either.

I will attach an example of both my Campaign and my Category file for reference. Example Complicated Vlookup.xlsx‎

I'm looking for a macro to basically produce me a list of shop names on one sheet with their appropriate sales information. Bascially, i have 4 sheets one for each week of the month, with all the sales info for various shops.

Find All Matches In Column Range

Jun 13, 2009

The objective of the code is to determine if a value in Column A exists:

- If it does, then copy data from a different worksheet into the row of the worksheet where the value resides
- if it doesnt, then go to the last used row in Column A and add then copy data from a different worksheet into the new row

The portion of the code im having trouble with involves the Finding of the value in Column A, and also the error handling when it doesnt find it.

The code below doesn't handle the error correctly.. for the data set im running the code on, it should find a value in Column A (which it does) but then it also runs the ErrHandler portion..which shouldnt happen.. it should only run the ErrHandler portion if it cant find the value in Column A (which therefore means a new record is required)

Sub UpdateRecords()
Dim fitem As String
Dim nmax As Integer
Dim nRow As Integer
Dim rFoundCell As Range

nRow = 10
nmax = Sheets("Availability").Range("schedulechange").Rows.count

Do While nRow <= nmax ....................

How To Find Matches Between Two Columns And Copy Cells In Row

Jan 15, 2013

I've just started with VBA and are trying to figure out following:

I'm using a validation list where the user choose one of twelve alternatives. The option she or he made is found in one or more rows in column B. If there is a match between the alternative in the validation list and in column B I want to copy some of the cells in the same row as the match in column B (to be exact, I want to copy the cells in column E, J, N and P) to another sheet.

I've succeeded doing this with one row but I don't know how to do without using that same code over and over again until Excel has made it trough all the rows. And there is over 200 of them.

Find Formula (find Jobs With Split Names)

Aug 5, 2009

DSee the attached.

The current spreadsheets add up each persons totals by matching the name in each tab with the name of the person who won the job located in current orders tab.

BUT.....If two salesman pair up on up on a job then the formula doesn't recognise the joint name. eg Gary/paul in row 69 (current orders).

I need the totals to half the job and add it to the salesmans total accordingly. There is no 'Paul Tab' as he is our MD and doesnt have a target.

Find Matches In Multiple Columns And Return Header

Oct 29, 2012

Lets see if I can put this into words.

I am trying to find matches of a specific cell in various columns. Example:

Header 1 -------Header 2----------Header 3
-ABC123-----------abc123--------------abd123
-abd123-----------hjk321---------------hdn234
-Abc123-----------dsd123--------------sds332

If I searched for the value "abc123" I want it to return Headers 1 and 2 in a seperate column. It would not matter if the same value is in one column multiple times

So the results would show me the Column Heading for anything that reads: "abc123", "ABC123", "AbC123", "aBC123"

Is this possible?

Identify Matches Of Combinations & Find Actual Occurence

Apr 28, 2008

I have another challenging solve for a VBA macro. So here it goes, as I have become frustrated trying to make an array formula with no joy. On my sample worksheet provided below this is what I am trying to accomplish:

(Solution cells) B4:I4 looks to the (Combination cells) M5:R10 for a match
If a match is present then cell J4 gives a "win" ,
If no match then cell J4 gives a " lose ".

Next if a win is present in cell J4, then cell K4 looks for when the draw number that matches occurred on from cells A4:A10, then subtracts the two(e.g. solutions cells from combination cells) to give the actual " # of draws to a win ". If no win is present in cell J4, then the default is zero for cell K4

The formula would be copied down thru cells J4:K12

Please refer to sample worksheet attached so that you can understand more clearly of just what I'm trying to do.

Isolate To Matches Of Name Then Find All Instances Of That Name Whose Values Fall Within Range

Jan 3, 2013

In my workbook I have two tabs, the first tab is intended to call on data located on the second tab so I can evaluate & Display it in different ways. Here's what's worked so far. Where I'm stuck is attempts to try and combine the two.

- the second tab is named AW_Items_Import

Examples:

1) Looking on the second tab to count the number of times a object (identified on the first tab in Cell B13) appears
=COUNTIF(AW_Items_Import!J:J,B13)

2) Looking on the second tab for items that fall within a set value range, the ranges specified on the first tab in cells C14 and E14

=COUNTIF(AW_Items_Import!G:G,">=" & C14) - COUNTIF(AW_Items_Import!G:G,">" & E14)

What I want to do, is combine 1) and 2) so I can isolate a search to a name specified on the first tab, THEN count the number of times that item falls within a set range, the range also specified on the first tab.

Macro Used Textbox In Worksheet Rather Than Cell Reference As Criteria To Find Matches

Sep 26, 2013

This is a continuation of thread 182629 [URL] ....

The End User wanted originally to type characters into cell C1 of a worksheet that the macro searched for in another worksheet, copying across every row containing the input.

The responses gave me the following code which worked perfectly:

VB:
With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & .[c1].Value & "*"
End With
If myFind = "*" & "" & "*" Then Exit Sub

Unfortunately, the user NOW wants a Text Box instead of putting the characters into a cell.

I added a textbox (originally called 'TextBox2' but renamed "Choice") and "Dimed" CHOICE As Range.

Then tried the following code:

VB:
With Sheets("PICKLIST")
myFind = "*" & CHOICE & "*"
End With

But it generates a "RunTime Error 91" - Object variable or With block variable not set.

Return Matches & Non-Matches From Delimited Cells Against List Range

Jan 29, 2010

In my spreadsheet, on the first worksheet called "Working". Column A, called "Results", contains carrot ^ delineated string values in each cell (i.e."john^apple^pear^banana^grape^love^heart^pickle"). The majority of string values in every cell in my "Results" column match a "source" column of Pick-List Values, called "Fruits" in the same spreadsheet, however found in a different worksheet called "Lists" (also in Column A). I want to perform 3 functions against my "Results" Column on worksheet "Working":

1.) Report In Column B: Analyze column "Results" by cell and return carrot delineated string values for only those that match my "Fruits" Pick-List

2.) Report In Column C: Analyze column "Results" by cell and return carrot delineated string values for only those do not match my "Fruits" Pick-List

3.) Report In Column D: Identify and return all unique values in "Column C" as a List.

Attached is a simple example of what I'm trying to accomplish called " Sorting.xls"

Compile Error On Close Of Excel 2003 But Not On Close Of Workbook

Mar 22, 2012

I am using Excel 2003.

It’s been working perfectly up until around an hour ago. However, now when I close Excel, I get compile errors.

These compile errors seem to be because Excel is trying to access controls in the workbook after it has closed. Since the workbook is closed, VBA can no longer ‘see’ the controls, and therefore it thows up errors.

I’m also getting a similar error on a Worksheets("DataExplorer").unprotect line, which seems to be because the worksheet isn’t there after closing.

These errors only occur when I close the whole excel application using the big cross in the top right. If I just close the workbook (using the smaller cross just below the big cross in the top right of excel), it doesn’t throw up these errors.

Just to clarify: all of the code runs perfectly when Excel is open. The errors are being thrown up for lines of code which run without problem until Excel is closed.

Find Several Names At Once

Jan 12, 2009

I have a list of 900 names in excel and I need to find certain individuals by last name. I can get a list of each person I need to find...lets say 20 last names. These names are in the 900 but I would need to use the find feature and look one up at a time and this will take forever.

Lets say sheet one has the 900 names and sheet two has the 20 names. Can I find the 20 names in sheet one quickly or do I have to use the find feature to search one person at a time on the first sheet with 900 names?
