Compare Or Isolate Differences Between Spreadsheets

Mar 12, 2009

I am a relatively light Excel user. I mainly use it when working with the .dbf files that make-up GIS shapefiles.

My problem at hand: How can I compare/isolate the rows from spreadsheet #1 to #2 to determine which rows are unique to spreadsheet #1?

What I'm doing: I have a spreadsheet of addresses which I joined to our parcels shapefile to select those parcels. I am trying to determine the success rate of my join operation by isolating the rows which weren't joined. This would be determined by highlighting which rows from spreadsheet #1 aren't in #2.

Compare Two Spreadsheets And Return Differences

Mar 17, 2007

I have two spreadsheets that I have to compare three columns in each to each other and find the difference between them. And I'm not sure how to do this.

I have attached a sample file to show what I'm looking at.

Basicly I need to know the differences between each spreadsheet based on zips. Each zip is assigned to a store and group and the "data" spreadsheet is the master. I need to compare the "system" spreadsheet and have it show me what is different based on each zip.

Find Differences Of 0.06 & Fill Color Them

Jul 16, 2007

I have columns of black data that I manually go through and find regions that have cells with values that are 0.06 or more different.

I then turn these regions into blue colored regions.

Is there any way you can design a macro that goes through the spreadsheet and FILL COLOR YELLOWs a cell who is 0.06 or more less then the next cell down?

This would be so much easier on my eyes, since I usually have 80 columns and 1500 rows of data.

The blue coloring I still have to do manually because my human instinct is sometimes important there.

I would be using the FILL COLOR YELLOW cells as quick markers for my regions of interest.

Compare Two Employee Records To Find Differences?

Oct 5, 2012

I have been given a task to compare a set of the current months employee records to last months employee records. The goal is to a) find employees who are still in our group but may have changed managers b) find employees who are no longer in our group and c) find employees that are new to our group. Once this information has been compared between the two workbooks, it needs to be exported to a new spreadsheet that needs additional columns added for formatting in order to import the new spreadsheet in a tracking tool.

For example, last months spreadsheet includes the tracking tool ID column and has a row for each employee. For an employee that is currently with the team they would need the tracking tool ID to be put in the newly generated spreadsheet. Additionally the current employee might have changed managers and that needs to be updated. A new column needs to be added to the new spreadsheet that shows that a current employee is "Active". For employees that are new to the team they won't have a tracking tool ID because they are new but would still need to be considered "Active". And for the employees that have left the group, they would also need the tracking tool ID from the old employee record but would need a column that would mark them "InActive" since they are no longer with the team. My last step is that I want to add a column called "Team" that would iterate through each employees managers and assign them to a specific team based on the manager that they have.

My general idea has been that I need to loop through all of the employee names or numbers from this months records for comparisons to the names of employees from last months records. Once a match has been found I need to copy the entire row from the current months to the new spreadsheet. That way I will get the latest info or "row" for a current employee and that would also handle finding if they have a new manager. Next I need to pull over the tracking ID from the last months records, create a new column called "Status" and make the employee "Active" and create a "Team" column showing the team.

For employees that are no longer on team, I need to copy the whole row from the latest employee records, pull over the tracking ID from the last months records, update the "Status" column and make the employee "InActive" and populate a "Team" cell showing the team. And lastly for the new employees, I need to copy over the row from this current months spreadsheet. They wont have a tracking ID (It will populated when the Excel file is imported in the tracking tool) and I need to update the Status column to "Active" and also provide their "Team". After the new spreadsheet is generated I am done. The file can be imported. And the next month I need to kick off this script again.

Find Function Over Two Spreadsheets

Jul 1, 2005

I have two spreadsheets, which have over 10,000 entries and I am trying to compare them both for duplicates. I would like to know whether or not there is any VBA coding which will allow me to copy a cell from one spreadsheet and look for it in the other spreadsheet.

The major problem which I am facing is the information which I am trying to look for is constantly changing and therefore is more or less unknown to me. I am hoping for some VBA coding which will allow me to copy whatever is in cell A1 and find it in the other spreadsheet which I have, and then do the same for A2,A3 and so forth.

Compare Two Excel Worksheets For Cell Differences?

Mar 8, 2005

This is a physical inventory process. An employee, using a barcode reader, will populate the cells of one column in a worksheet with asset IDs that are located at a facility. Once done, the employee must compare the cell values of the worksheet that he or she has populated to the cell values of the inventory roster. The desired outcome is to produce a plus/delta report based on the comparison of the two worksheets.

Using Macros To Find Duplicates In Two Spreadsheets?

Apr 19, 2014

I run an online baseball league, and the game I use to simulate our games has issued a new version which has updated ratings for all the baseball players. I have exported rosters from the new game and rosters from my online league to .csv files and what I want to do is find which players are duplicates in both files and line them so that I can scroll both files simultaneously and update my online league file easily. I also want the non-duplicate players to be sorted below the duplicates so I can deal with them later. Someone on the other forum posted some dynamic named range code and two macros and gave me some vague instructions on how to use the codes. I have posted the codes below with their instructions:

In both:

a) There're defined 2 dynamic named ranges:

"DataTable" as: =DESREF(INDIRECTO(DIRECCION(COINCIDIR("//Player ID";updated_rosters!$A:$A;0)+2;1;1;1;"ml_rosters"));;;CONTARA(updated_rosters!$A:$A)-

Differences In Results Using OFFSET Between Excel 2010 And 2007

Mar 6, 2013

I created a data validation formula for an Excel 2010 workbook that would only display client names who were assigned to the manager that they selected. The formula works fine in Excel 2010. However, when I open the same workbook in Excel 2007, the data validation type is reset to "Any value" and the formula is missing.

OFFSET is an available command in both 2007 and 2010. When I try to add the formula as a data validation list in 2007, an error indicates that Offset cannot access data in a different table. I have not been able to find any documentation which restricts the OFFSET command in Excel 2007 but there seems to be some incompatibility between the two Excel versions.

The formula I used was:



"Clients" is a sheet which lists all clients under each manager."Summary" is a separate sheet which contains the manager's name. Only clients matching this name will be available in the employee's client list.There are 50 "employee" sheets, each which should use this formula for data validation in the client column.

The error we received seemed to indicate that the above command could not access data on another worksheet. It is not an option for me to copy the client list onto each sheet that uses this formula. Are there any other options?

FIND Method For Comparing Two Columns In 2 Spreadsheets

Dec 20, 2012

I am using "FIND" method for comparing two columns in 2 spreadsheets. So if cell value in sheet1 matches with cell value in sheet2 then copy multiple columns from sheet2 to sheet1 (similar to what VLOOKUP does but I need to return multiple values if the comparison is true).

Values that I comparing are in Column A in both the sheets. Is match I need to return values from about 20 columns (from sheet2 to sheet1). One value that I am returning is in Column B, I was able to get that working. but other values are in columns starting from M. I do not know how to get those values from Sheet2 to Sheet1.

Following is the portion of code that deals with this FIND method

Set wsTools = Worksheets("AllTools")
Set wsToolParts = Worksheets("Tools and Parts")

Set ToolPartsRange = wsToolParts.Range("A2:A" & lR)
Set AllToolRange = wsTools.Range("A2:A" & lR3)

For Each ToolPartsCells In ToolPartsRange

[Code] .....

As you may notice that the following line brings next column (B) back but I do not know how to get other column values. They are in columns from M to Z

ToolPartsCells.Offset(, 1) = ToolCells.Offset(, 1)

Excel 2003 :: How To Show Differences And Count Between 2 Columns Of Text

Aug 5, 2012

Have Excel 2003. I have

List of email addresses in column a
List of email addresses in column b

** I would like a formula that will take all the values in column A and compare it to the entire list of entries in column B.
Would like it to show in Column C any entries in Column A that ARE NOT in the entire column B.

*Would like it to repeat for entries that are in Column B, but not in Column A and show in D.

*Then would like a count of the differences for each column (that is pretty easy).

It needs to look at the entire list of entries in the column as these will be email addresses. We want to know what is missing from Column A that is not in Column B and what is missing from B that is not in A.

How To Link Excel Charts To Other Spreadsheets

Feb 6, 2014

I have to enter data into a spreadsheet daily and update a line graph with the data for 10 different production machines. I want to place the charts on their own separate excel file that way they can be easily viewed without the data next to them. I tried copying and pasting the graphs to another excel spreadsheet, but when I update the graphs on the original excel file the data does not change on the one I copied the graphs to. I use the select data range option to update the line graph data. Basically, I just want both graphs to update at the same time on both spreadsheets, but the links don't seem to update. How would I link the graphs so that both update across files?

Excel 2003 :: Merging Specific Data From Two Spreadsheets Into One

May 2, 2014

I have two Spreadsheets on Excel 2003, one provided by a service supplier (i), and one from my own system (ii).

I need a macro attached to spreadsheet ii that looks for data matches between the F column of my spreadsheet, and the C column of the suppliers. Where data matches (i.e. if cell C42 in spreadsheet ii is the same as cell F23 in spreadsheet i) it transfers the contents of the A column of spreadhseet i and places it in the corresponding cell in the C column of spreadsheet ii.

Example 1 : In spreadsheet i cell C20=BN213YD. In spreadhseet ii cell F55=BN213YD. Therefore, the macro takes the contents of cell A20 in spreadsheet i and places it in cell C55 of spreadheet ii

Example 2 : In spreadsheet i Cell C75 = TN142XS. In spreadsheet ii this data is not found. The macro therefore takes no further action.

Basically, the suppliers spreadsheet has less information per row, but more entries overall. My spreadsheet is lacking a lot of suppliers references, but has more comprehensive information elsewhere. Until now i have been doing a manual search of the postcodes between the spreadsheets and rectifying them manually, but this is taking longer and longer as the spreadsheets grow.

Excel 2010 :: Import Data From Other Spreadsheets Into Multiple Tables?

Sep 13, 2013

I'm trying to create some vba code that will go into other .xlsx documents, pull all cells with a value in the first 30 columns and then return them as a table. Basically each work crew has a .xlsx spreadsheet containing their schedule and I am trying to bring them all together into one nice little package. If I go to import from external sources then click XML data, navigate to the folder they are in and them click show all files and pick my spreadsheet it imports nicely. Then I go to the next blank cell in column "A" and repeat for the 4 crews. Now I can filter by each crew but all 4 are visible on a single page as a table. I recorded a macro that shows everything I did, but it is not dynamic (the .xlsx source files name changes based on the month) I'm running XP sp3 with Excel 2010

Here is a copy of what I have


With ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(SourceType:=0, Source:=Array( _
"OLEDB;Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Password="""";User ID=Admin;Data Source=C:Documents and SettingsUSERNAMEDesktopSCHEDULE STUF" _
, _
"FAcrewCurrent.xlsx;Mode=Share Deny Write;Extended Properties=""HDR=YES;"";Jet OLEDB:System database="""";Jet OLEDB:Registry Path=""""" _
, _
";Jet OLEDB:Database Password="""";Jet OLEDB:Engine Type=37;Jet OLEDB:Database Locking Mode=0;Jet OLEDB:Global Partial Bulk Ops=2;J" _
, _
"et OLEDB:Global Bulk Transactions=1;Jet OLEDB:New Database Password="""";Jet OLEDB:Create System Database=False;Jet OLEDB:Encrypt " _


Is there a better or simpler way to do this? The tables don't need to be forever linked to their previous spreadsheets so if copy/pasting is a better way than I am all for that as well.

I need to compare the cell C2 to cell B2 and return the difference in cell D2 which in this case would be the characters " tom, I". They are separated with "," and they can be in different order as you can see in the example.
