Find Matching Number In Two Columns

I want to loop through ID Column and find the matching number in Record No.column, and hightlight the entire row when match is found. The code I am running can only work for one cell at a time, but I want to run one time.

Find Matching Words In Two Columns
I have a spreadsheet with 65000 potential client surnames in column c, with contract details in neighbouring columns. I have also a spreadsheet of 6000 actual client surnames. I would like to search the large spreadsheet to make sure that none of the clients are contained in it, or if some are to highlight them.

Do I use advanced filter or vlookup? I use excel 2000 and due to the size of the first spreadsheet it takes 6 minutes to open/save e.t.c.

Find The Matching Text TRUE/FEE Or FALSE/FEE In Columns
I have 2 sheets. On one sheet, this column J2:J490 contains text that either says "TRUE" or "FALSE" and another column AJ2:AJ490, text that says "FEES". (many of the other cells in this column say something else). I need a formula that can find the matching text TRUE/FEE or FALSE/FEE in these columns, count them, and give me the product.

Matching Columns
I want to add these numbered steps onto the macro I already have, which I pasted below.

1. Starting in Row 2 in the worksheet named Report 1 look at contents in Column A then look at the contents in Column C, if the contents in Column C do not match exactly the contents in Column A then copy the contents in the range column C:E from that row till the last row in Column C:E.

2. Now we will have a range that is made up of cells from C:E. I would like to move that range down a row at a time, until the first cell in Column C from the range Column C:E matches exactly the contents in Column A. Then I would like to continue this pattern for every row in the worksheet.

Matching Data From 2 Columns
I have 2 columns of data. Both should ultimately have identical data,
but both have extranious data I need to separate. These lists will be
300+ long, so by hand is taking forever. Example:
Column A Column B
12345 12344
12346 12345
12347 12346
12348 12347
12349 12349

I need a way to extract the 12344 from column B since it is not in A,
and 12348 from A since it is not in B. They do not have the same number
of entries.

I need to check the individual cells of "parent" column in "Missing Asset" with "parent" column of "Asset" worksheet. It means, presence of cell text of A2 of "Missing Asst" sheet has to be checked with "A" Column of "Asset" sheet. If A2 text is present in "A" Column of "asset" sheet then "Y" should appear in B2 cell of "Missing Asset" sheet. Else "N".

Matching Up Values From 2 Columns
I have two columns of data, in A and B. Column A has about 500 rows of numbers, while column B only has about 150. All the numbers that are in column B exist in column A.

(Column B is a monthly product production list, while column A is a "master list" of all products that can be produced)

I need someway to match the data in Column B with Column A so they line up.

I was thinking something like this, but don't know how to do it:

"Where value in column A = value in column B, then copy this data into cells D1 and E1" (so the values line up next to each other)

is this possible? Maybe with some advanced filter? Or a macro? It seems kind of silly, but I just need to have the data next to each other without doing it manually.

Matching Two Columns In Two Sheet
I have two worksheets and I want to match two columns from each worksheet and return me a respond with "yes" or "no" For example:

Sheet 1

Name Item

ABC 123
DEF 456
GHI 789

Sheet 2
Name Item
ABC 123
DEF 789
GHI 134

So, I want to search the "name" column in Sheet 1 with Sheet 2, if they found the name is matching, then search for "item" column in sheet 1 with the "item" in sheet 2. If they both match, I want to return with a "yes" if not return value "no" in a different column #3.

I tried to do it, but it keeps on finding "789" in column 1 with "789" in column even though the name is different, it still return me a value of "yes."

Index Matching With Multiple Columns
I'm trying to have a cell where I return the minimum value of column A but only when column B equals 380 and when C equals 80. I know how to do it if I select my range manually to be the range including all the 380's and 80's but I'd like to select the entire data set to look through so that I can easily change the criteria to say finding the minimum in Column A when B equals 420 and C equals 40.

Matching Two Columns In Two Separate Worksheets!
I have two worksheets with one row of 'accounting' type numbers in A1:A100 (it can be shorter or longer) on both sheets. I need to run a search on worksheet one to see which of them exactly match any on the second worksheet and then highlight them.

It can be a macro or it can highlight each entry a different color. Something so that I can determine which two numbers go together and I can run the thing only once.

There most likely will not be multiples on the same worksheet but if there are it will be few. If multiples happen it is ok it just needs to be matched to the second worksheet in a different color than the other similar numbers.

Another thing is if there is no match in either worksheet that is ok it can just skip to the next number in the list and check that one. There does not need to be a match.

Matching Data In 2 Columns To Return 1.
I'm working on a excel sheet to compare data of 2 columns. One column (or array), let's say C3:C13 contains "x" in some of its cells. The other column, let's say P3:P13, contains "d" in some of its cell. What I would like to do is compare the cells of the same row, see if they contain any data and return 1.

So if C3 contains an "x" and P3 contains a "d", therefore it returns 1. If C4 doesn't have an "x" and P4 has a "d", it will return a 0.

The closest I can get to this is the following formula

=SUM(IF(AND(C3="x",P3="d"),1,0), IF(AND(C4="x",P4="d"),1,0), IF(AND(C5="x",P5="d"),1,0), IF(AND(C6="x",P6="d"),1,0)), IF(AND(C7="x",P7="d"),1,0)), IF(AND(C8="x",P9="d"),1,0)), IF(AND(C6="x",P6="d"),1,0))...

However, this formula is way too long. Is there another way of writting or simplifying this formula?

Counting Matching Occurrences From Multiple Columns
I have a sheet with data which is all sorted by columns.

What I want to be able to count the occurrence of an instance when 2 cells in the same row (but in different columns) match my given criteria.

Ive been using 'countif' to count the instances in a single column and I am now aware that this is about all it can be used for.

An example of my data is:

1 a
1 a
1 c
2 d
2 c
3 b
3 b
3 c
3 d

What I want to be able to count for example is how many times '3' & 'b' occur on the same row (in this case the answer would be 2).

Im not very good with pivot tables and have tried but have not managed to find an answer. I really hope that someone can help as Ive been working on this probelm for days and quite frankly its doing my head in :-)

Compare Two Columns And Show Only Non Matching Values
Basically I have Two Columns.

Column A: Column B:

GN0001 DB0002
DB0002 DP0012
GE0025 GN0001
GR0026 GE0025
DR1235 GR0026
DP0012 DR1235

Column A is the master codes list for a unique product.

Now every time a product is sold, its unique code number is entered into column B.

What I want excel to do is compare Column A and Column B and show me only the codes that DO NOT match.

This way I know which items should be present in store when I do a physical stock check.

So the end result should be:

Column A: Column B: Column C:

GN0001 DB0002 GS0025
DB0002 DP0012 PC128
GE0025 GN0001
GR0026 GE0025
DR1235 GR0026
DP0012 DR1235

Find Duplicate And Clear Possible Corresponding Matching Value
how to reference the drang (named range) and the cell propertly as i keep getting an error.

Everything in the below code works except the parts below in blue

I have in column X lots of names and in column Y (dynamic column
anges as the users chooses them as per the code) and I want to loop through all names in 'X' and if there are multiple of the same names then for the corresponding 'Y' row entry of each be checked and if they are equal (same $ value) then for one of them of cells in the Y column to be cleared.

Basically if the same name appears more than once it will most likley have the same $ value and if i do a calculation on the $'s it will be 2,3,10 times the amount it should be, hence the need for this .

As per the below code I am trying to use 2 for Each loops though I keep getting an error when trying to reference the drng range which has the values in them..

Matching An Approximate Number
I have a cell lets say A1 in which it is calculated by goal seek a percentage number, and on the other hand I have a table that has a range of percentages for example 10% 20% 30%... 100% for each percentage there is a certain number designated to it i.e. 10%---2 20%----4 etc..

What I am trying to achieve is that by telling the computer look up the percentage value of A1 and look at the percentage rage in my table and put the number that matches with the return. I normally use an =Index(..match(..)) formula but in this case my problem is that the ammount that I can get on A1 is not a rounded ammount like 30% I can obtain numbers like 31%, 32% Is there a way I can set up in my frmula so that it may find the closest number in the table range.

So if on cell A1 I have 35% to look up 30% on the table, but if it is over 35% to use 40% and so on.

Function For Recognizing Matching Text And Adding Up Columns
I am currently tracking online PPC keyword reports with Excel and need to know if there is a function that will find and match words and phrases and then add the columns that are queried for the matching words/phrases. I think an example is definately in order.

December PPC
Keyword Clicks Cost Revenue
large dogs 45 .18 $12.00
small dogs 35 .25 $15.00

January PPC
Keyword Clicks Cost Revenue
large dogs 12 .14 $8.25
small dogs 18 .18 $5.35

Now using the example above I need a function or maybe even a macro that will scan all "keywords" and find a match for each keyword each month, say large dogs, and then add the clicks, costs, and revenue columns and post them on a particular row or rows.

So when running the function it will find and match "large dogs" for each month, it will then add the clicks for all months with "large dogs" in it and then populate a column or row with the total along with the keyword "large dogs" next to it. Is there a function that will do this or maybe even a macro?

Find Average Of Rows That Have Matching Arguments (7)
Need to find average (see attached file) of certain rows of column C that correspond to letters on column B that match any letter on column A. Basically if column B has the same text as in one of the cells in column A then number across in column C should be used to calculate the average. In column D I have entered(manually) all values that satisfy the above condition and obviously the average should be 1 if formula is correct.

I have tried to use AverageIF function but not able to do it as there are many conditions. Another thing to consider is that conditions change (column A content) so I need to use cells that have information rather then actual text in it.

Find Rows With Cells Matching Criteria
I want to read information from the "Mapping" sheet, then find information in the "GLEX" sheet that correspond to the read information, then copy the information that was found in "GLEX" to the "Calc" sheet and add it all together and display the sum in a particular cell in the "Report" sheet.

The "Mapping" sheet is a mapping of information to show what makes up a particular total and where it must be entered in the "Report" sheet. The "GLEX" sheet is the output from a financial system and the source of the information that must be "reformatted" to the "Report" sheet. The information is only an extract as the whole totals to around 10MB. I have also deleted the "Report" sheet as it is fairly big on it's own, but the principal will be the same, I think. (If i should upload the "Report" sheet,)

Step 1:
"Column A" and "Column B" of "Mapping" are the starting points. The macro must read the values in "Mapping" "Column A" and "Column B" and remember them. Then it must find the row in "GLEX" "Column A" where the information from "Mapping" "Column A" matches and where the information from "Mapping" "Column B" matches with the information from "GLEX" "Column E".

I would like to amend my macro w/ additional code that will allow me to view the value in column A, if a subject is chosen from list from columns D or E. Choosing a singal subject to view from row2,from column,D or E will cause the value in column A to not be seen if the subject does not correspond with the row the value is located. Is there a way to match values from corresponding/matching column values with the rows with values in columnA? And. allow if match found to display/list the value in the first empty cell in column A for match? I would also like the macro to reverse match for column A.

So if a single value is selected in column A for view, then all rows for which the value pertains to will also be shown, instead of just the single row with the value.
Here's an examplary make of the booklet.

Search To Find Matching Cells And Copy/transpose Adjacent Data To Original Sheet?
I'm trying to find a way to search a second sheet in a workbook for specific criteria outlined in a first sheet (in my attached example, from A3 downwards within the 'list of search criteria' sheet), and then to copy any secondary data found against a successful search match to the original sheet, transposed against its corresponding matched search term.

As you can see in the example, the search term 'bindi' (A4 in the 'list of search criteria' sheet) appears in the 'data' sheet 3 times - the secondary data for these occurences ('feathery', 'Fibonacci', 'glassy') is copied to the 'bindi' row on the first sheet and is offset with each copy to produce a transposed-esque effect of copy and paste.

If it's any help, there are a maximum of 9 matches for a single search term in the real document.

Thanks in advance for your help... I tried to adapt a previous solution given to me for a similar question but failed miserably. I bow humbly to your expertise!
