# Finding Similar Numbers In Two Sheets

Jun 25, 2013

I have an excel file which contains two sheets. In one sheet there are some numbers in a single column. In the other sheet again there are certain numbers span across rows and columns (a number may be duplicated). I need to check whether there are numbers which exist in both the sheets. If such a number is found it may be marked (say with a color) in both the sheets.

## Finding Duplicates Using Countif Or Similar

Jan 13, 2014

I have over 400 thousand rows in my data-set and I'm trying to find duplicates using a countif or similar formula. Let's say I have the following:

Blue
Yellow
Green
Blue
Blue
Yellow
Pink

I need the formula to increment the count. So for example, the first time Blue appears, it equals 1, the second it appears, it equals 2, third time is 3 and so on.

And, I need it to actually work with 400 thousand rows. I have tried using the following formulas without success as Excel keeps crashing:

=IF((COUNTIF(T:T,\$T2)>1),COUNTIF(T:T,\$T2),"")=IF(COUNTIF(T:T,T2)>1,2,1)

That second one equals "2" if there's more than 1, which will work for me as well. Better would be if it increments though.

The purpose of having a count is so that I can pivot the data, then filter out all the "1"s and report on it. Therefore I can't use conditional formatting, or simply using Excels Remove Duplicates feature. I need the same data-set for other pivots and charts.

## AverageIf - Finding Similar Text

Sep 26, 2007

I've searched around the web for AverageIf solutions and found the CSE formulas. However I've come across a big problem I can't resolve.

I have two columns of data. Column A has _similar_ text and column B has data.

The problem is the following: AverageIf does not support finding similar text. This means that a formula like:
=AVERAGE(IF(A2:A400="Info/German*";F2:F200;FALSE)) does not work.

Column A contains words like Info/German, Info/German2, Info/Italian etc. But I only need to find the average of cells that begin with "Info/German".

## Finding Duplicate And Or Similar Info Across Columns And Highlight (names And Addresses)

Jan 29, 2014

Magazine subscription list. How to highlight the customers that are already in the sheet if enter them again (renewal). Our list is like so....

ColA ColB ColC ColD ColE ColF
First Last 123 Ave City State Zip

Is there a way to highlight the row if the info on ColA, ColB, ColE, and ColF all match? Sometimes the Street info is abbreviated or entered PO Box instread of P.O. Box and they wind up on the list a second time.

## Gather Data Across Several Similar Sheets

Mar 3, 2014

This particular formula is used several times to gather various data points across 3 different sheets named Month-1, Month-2 and Month-3.I gather the data the following 3 formulas then sum it as needed with a helper cell.

=IFERROR(INDEX('Month-1'!\$A\$1:\$G\$6000,MATCH(TRUE,INDEX(1/('Month-1'!\$A\$1:\$A\$6000=\$G\$24)*ROW('Month-1'!\$A\$1:\$A\$6000)-MATCH(\$A96,'Month-1'!\$B\$1:\$B\$6000,0)>0,),0),MATCH(\$M\$2,'Month-1'!\$A\$14:\$G\$14,0)),"")

[code]....

## Averaging Numbers From Similar Names

Oct 14, 2009

I have tried looking for similar questions in the forum and couldn't find them. If you know of any, please let me know. My problem is that in one column I have peoples names that are repeated. I need to average numbers that are in the same row as their name. So for example:

NameDateworkPagesRevisions Revisions/PageRH9/16/09Sandy land39320.82Bryce9/18/09Price mixed use1111030.93Bryan F.9/21/09Letter (rates)6325.33Bryan F.9/21/09Bountiful Nursery64871.36Randy9/22/09SJ Subdivision58220.38RH9/25/09Park City office Condos76881.16Bryce9/25/09Evanston Motel62210.34

this list is continually added upon monthly. So for Bryce I would be able to pull 111 and 62 and have an average of 87.5 from the pages column. But if I were to add another row farther down with his name, it would change the average.

I was thinking that a repeated vlookup would work if it stopped when there was a blank in the cell, but I am unsure on how to do this. If you have any questions, let me know. I was hoping to have it in a formula in a cell above the table.

## Finding List Which Has Most Similar Entries To Reference List

Apr 26, 2014

I have two lists of product data, one for buyers and one for sellers (these are listed as A, B, C). The product names are not exactly the same (Eg Playstation and playstation three should be matched), I would have thought using the FuzzyLogic add in to match these would be the way forward! I need to rank the sellers by how many of their items appear on the buyers list

## Finding Name Then Finding Reoccurring Numbers

Feb 25, 2014

I have been trying to write two formulas in one cell. I have been able to write them both separately but have been unable to join them both together. What I am trying to do if first search name them how many reoccurring numbers appear. I have provided an example below

a b c d

1 Tom 333
2 Sam 22
3 Sam 22
4 John 5
5 Sam 22
6 Sam 1
7 Tom 3
8 Tom 333

Tom = 2
Sam = 2
John = 1

## Finding Common (repeated) Numbers In Columns Of Numbers

Mar 21, 2008

I work for a charity and I have to cancel the donations of people whose credit card donations have been declined in three consecutive months.

If in Column A I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Jan 2008, in Column B I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Feb 2008 and in Column C I have a list of donor IDs whose credit cards were declined in Mar 2008, is there a way of showing in a fourth column which donor IDs were common (repeated) in Columns A, B and C? I would have a title for each column in A1, B1 and C1, and also the column where the repeated donor IDs would be displayed.

## Finding Similar Value From One List In Another List?

Oct 7, 2011

On Sheet 1 I have a list of employee names (John, Bob, Ross etc...)in column A and in column B I have a list of employee bonus points (1, 5, 3 etc...). On Sheet 2 I have the same setup but the list of employees on sheet 2 is a lot longer than the ones on sheet 1, all employee names are on sheet 2.

I need a macro that will go down to each name on the list on sheet 1, column A, and copy the employee bonus points then go to sheet 2 and find the that employees name in the list and paste the bonus points in column B. This must be done until the last name on sheet 1 is found and all points are copied to their corresponding names on sheet 2.

## Finding A Sum Of Two Numbers

Nov 16, 2012

Is there a function in excel that can look at an array of values and find the two values that equal a number.

I have a number 159. I have an array of 100 numbers but only two of them added together can equal 159. Rather than sort through every possible combination is there a function in excel that can do that?

## Finding The Average Across Multiple Sheets

Oct 18, 2005

I'm trying to find the average for a person with scores in column 4 on 3 separate sheets. The following function returns #VALUE.. Because the person may be in a different row on each sheet, I'm thinking I need to use the VLOOKUP function.... Also, as an aside, the person may have a zero on one sheet that would affect the average score...

=AVERAGE(VLOOKUP(A4,Week03:Week01!A\$4:G\$30,4,0))

## Finding Matching Values In Different Sheets

Oct 11, 2011

I have in Sheet 1 a list of product codes (that should be only numbers, i.e: 1010) on column A, product description on B and a sales column on C.

On Sheet 2 I have on column A I have in the same cell a letter "C" the product code and the product description(i.e.: C1010 Onions). On column B I got the sales total. ( I dont care about the letter "C" it can be deleted)

I would like to use a VBA code to find the same product codes between sheet 1 & 2 and copy the sales total from sheet 2 to sheet 1 when the product code is the same.

## Finding The Sum Within A Range Of Numbers

Dec 30, 2008

So I have multiple columns of numerical data,

I have to find the sum of all numbers between 10 and 40 within a column, NOT cell 10 to 40 but the actual number 10 and 40.

How do I do that?

Is it SUMIF? I cannt seem to grasp this.

## Finding A Value Between Two Given Numbers In One Cell

Mar 29, 2009

I have another post here on this forum, but I'm afaid the formula is getting so complex that nobody is able to fully understand what I want. Instead I want to find a value between two numbers and add it to some IF sentences. It will do what I want, even if it's not that elegant.

I've looked at the SUMIF function but it did not do exactly what I wanted. It finds a number or adds numbers only if they are in range it seems.

What I want is the following:
Return sum between 500 and 1000 in one cell.

## Finding 2 Numbers In A Field

Jan 14, 2013

Create a form where i would enter 2 numbers into 2 seperate boxes, and those numbers would be highlighted/bolded/shown in red from a list of 30 rows of numbers x 20 numbers in each row. these 2 numbers will not be the same all the time, below is just for an example

ie. number: ... (5) number: ... (59)

1 28 19 20 5 9 80 72 12 38 50 53 59 83 ...
8 4 38 29 11 39 27 38 3 49 59 80 13 12 49 4 5 ...
and so on....
....

So picture something like that, but with 30 rows of numbers x 20 numbers in each row.

## Finding What Numbers Are In One Column But Not The Other

Nov 10, 2009

I have a large list of numbers in two columns. I need to know what numbers are in column A but don't appear in column B. For example if the numbers are 1 2 and 3 in column A but column B only has 1 and 2 I need to know that 3 is missing.

the only thing I can think of is doing =IF(A1=B1,"TRUE","FALSE") however typing this a thousand times would not be practical.

Is there a macro that can check column A against column B and tell me which ones are missing?

## Finding Non Zero Smallest Numbers

Feb 16, 2008

Find smallest numbers in the range ignoring zeros.
I want it returned as value "1", all others - as value "0".
Example: range A1:J1 contains - 5,0,7,3,6,5,8,0,9,3
desirable result in the range A2:J2 - 0,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,1

## Finding Numbers From String

Aug 11, 2009

I am trying to find numbers from a string. I have for example words "EUR Fwd 9x12" and "Eur Fwd 11x15" And i want to write a function that reads the first number from a string if there is only one number before "x" or two numbers if there are 2 numbers. So I have tried to build following function:

Function NumbersInString(Word As String) As Integer
Dim i As Integer
Dim FirstNumberInString As Integer, SecondNumberInString As Integer
For i = 1 To Len(Word)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i, 1)) Then
FirstNumberInString = Mid(Word, i, 1)
If IsNumeric(Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)) = False Then
Exit Function
Else
SecondNumberInString = Mid(Word, i + 1, 1)
End If
End If

Next
NumbersInString = FirstNumberInString & SecondNumberInString
End Function

## Finding The X Highest Or Lowest Numbers In A Set?

Jul 24, 2014

I am looking for a way to find a highest (and/or) lowest value in a list of numbers. The list keeps getting longer and after a certain point I will need the 2 highest (or lowest), then the 3 highest (or lowest). I know MIN and MAX will find the high and low, but how do I find the 2nd highest, etc?

## Finding An Average Couple Numbers

Jul 9, 2008

I am trying to get an average of a couple numbers, but I have to enter both numbers in one cell.

I have to enter the numbers in a cell as a range (ex. "1000-3000"). I need to convey it as a range in the spreadsheet I am doing, but in a separate cell I need the average of the extremes (1000 & 3000). Is there a formula or anything that would let me get the average of those two numbers(2000) directly from that one cell? If needed, I could make the cell "1000,3000" instead. I just don't want to make two separate cells, one saying 1000 and the other saying 3000.

## Finding Which Numbers Make A Total

May 22, 2009

I do a lot of work in excel to do with accounts and this often needs checking against sage. When the invoices/petty cash sheets are put into sage the total amount is put in, but in my spreadsheets I need to split the reciepts. So I was wondering if there was a formula/VBA code, that if I only knew the total of the invoice would find which cells added up to this total?

## Finding Numbers In Text String

May 11, 2010

In a data report i have a column which contains a mix of text and may contain an 8 digit number which could start in 0.

for example

in column A i could have "Hello how are you 01237232 I am fine"

I wish to extract the number into a seperate column, and would ordinarilly use a mid or left/ right function, however the text infront and behind the number will vary in length, which means i cannot do this.

The number will always be 8 digits, could start in 0 but will not always, and it may not be present in all the cells in this column.

How I an achieve this?

## Finding Numbers Of Rows And Columns?

May 5, 2013

How I can know the numbers of rows and columns in a excel sheet?

## Finding Difference Between Non-consecutive Numbers?

Jul 11, 2013

I have got the following issue. I have got a large list of values in a column. I need to detect the the ones which are in non-consecutive order and display the difference in single numbers. For example:

1 fine
2 fine
3 fine
7 - 4,5,6
10 - 8,9

In other words I need to find the missing values and get them displayed.

## Finding Sums Of Different Numbers Of Cells

Jun 21, 2006

I am building an inventory simulation and have run into a problem. What i want is, when i change a number in cell H4, i want excel to find the sum of C25 and the cells "H4" up. If H4 is 5 then i need the sum of C20:C25...if H4 is 10 i need C15:C25. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to do this? I have attached a sample sheet to make it more clear.

## Finding Prime Numbers In A Range And Highlighting It

Oct 28, 2013

How can I find prime numbers in a range and highlight it if a number in a cell is a prime.

## Finding The Middle Cell In A Column Of Numbers

Sep 8, 2009

I am looking for a formulas to first find the middle number in a column of numbers eg 1,2,3,4,5 3 is the middle (similar to median) thats where the calculations start...

it then assigns values of minus to the numbers above the middle and plus values to the numbers below the middle
1 -50
2 -50
3 0
4 +50
5 +50

now when it comes to even numbers eg 1,2,3,4,5,6 if i use median it divide 3 & 4 and comes up with 3.5 ........ i want it to recognize 3 and 4 as the middle numbers
and assign plus and minuses above and below the middle numbers
1 -50
2 -50
3 -25
4 +25
5 +50
6 + 50

## Finding Country Based On Phone Numbers?

Dec 5, 2008

I have a list of mobile phone numbers from various countries. However, I do not know which country each entry is from. Ideally I would like to have a macro that looks at each number, compares to a global list of PSTN structure to determine which part of the phone number is the country code (generally the first 1-3 digits), and then put the country in a separate column.

I am certain all numbers are formatted correctly, so it is only a matter of finding out which part is the country code and putting a value for the country.

## Excel 2010 :: Finding Duplicate Numbers?

Jun 15, 2014

Using Office 2010.

I am trying to find duplicate numbers in sets but so far I can only highlight the ones that are in exact order. I need to find each set that has the same numbers, in any order. Example..

I will provide an example of sets of 3. But I get 3, 4 usually but sometimes 5 or 6.

I get them from different people.

Person A- 234, 569, 498, 849, 848,343,567,347 etc...

Person B- 432, 596, 677, 566, 565,433, 455 etc..

Now I need to find each set that has the same numbers, any order. Like 234 from A and 432 from B would be the same, so I would need to highlight them 2 sets. But I can not figure out how to do this. For Excel to highlight it they have to be 234 and 234. Does not recognize same numbers, different order.
