# Formulas To See If Names In One Column Exists On The Names In Second Column

Aug 18, 2014

I have two columns listing about 400 and 500 names respectively.

First Column has names in alphabetical order and the second column is random.

One column has names in this format: Last name, First name

And the other column lists the names as first name and then last name without the comma

I am trying to see if the list of names in one column exists in the other.

Is there a way to see this without changing the format of the names in each column? If so do I have to erase the comma?

## Match Names In Two Separate Column If Equal Then Pull Info In 3 Column?

Dec 6, 2013

I need to look up the name in E2 in the list in column A and if it matches then lookup name in F2 in list column b, if it matches then the corresponding number in column C is displayed in column G. If neither names are in the 2 columns the words"Not on lists" is displayed in cell in column G.

The other problem is one name is spelled two different ways I want it to look for both spelling before moving on to looking up the second name.

I started with this formula but I'm getting #N/A or "not on list" when they are on the list. I'm using ranges prod_sum is columns AthruC, Last_name is range BthruC. =IF(AND(VLOOKUP(F4,prod_sum,3,0),VLOOKUP(I4,last_name,2,0)),"not on list")

## Continuous Column Of Names Pulled From Another Column With Blanks Between Values

Feb 27, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with two columns - one with names, the other with values. In some cases, the values column alongside a name is blank. Is there a formula-driven method (not a pivot table) that could produce a separate list of only the names that have a value in the value column? The formula needs to be dynamic, not produced via a filter.

## Match Column Names Based On Primary Key In Column A

Jul 17, 2014

The following code works to update the target sheet based on matching column names within the source sheet.

However, I would like to bolster this by not only updating based on matching field names, but also the primary key in column A. Meaning the data from the source sheet isn't always in the same order (based on primary keys) as the data in the target sheet. So I want to keep the order of the primary key in the first column and then update matching field names in column B through the last column where the primary keys match between the source and target worksheets.

Sub CopyDataBlocks()
'VARIABLE NAME 'DEFINITION
Dim SourceSheet As Worksheet 'The data to be copied is here

## Get A List Of Names From A Column?

Apr 6, 2013

I have a workbook with a collumn full of football championships. As you know there are hundreds of different championships names. And i have a collumn with all of them but some are repeated over and over because this collumn is connected with values of profit/loss in another collumn. For example: Blue Square North (Collumn A1) and in collumn B1 1.75; then Blue Square North (Collum A2) and 2.98 (Collumn B2), and over and over...

So what i need is a formula that retrieves all unique and different names in a range collumn and the puts all the dfferent names in a new collumn (lets say C). Because what i intend to do then is to use vlookup to search for the championships one by one (through collumn C) and count the ones with profit and them loss by the name of each one.

So what i need is a way to retrive a list of the unique names in A and get them in C.

## Search For Names In A Column

May 13, 2009

I have a macro that I'm using to check people in based on their name. The only problem is that the names are both First Last; Last, First; some have middle initials and others have Jr, Sr, etc. I know that this can be sorted through using a Regular Expression, but I have no clue how they operate. I've found many an example of Regular Expressions for VBA, but none of them translate into "Proper English".

## Lookup Using Row And Column Names

Dec 21, 2009

I have two workbooks used for periodically updating product pricing to wholesale customers, one of which has all the product computation info and the other all the customers and products they buy. There is one main sheet in the product information book that has all the products going down the first column with a code for each item. The headings of many of its columns represent variations in packaging. The combination of product and package variations result in the customer's unique price.

I am seeking to find the intersection of product and packaging using names rather than cell numbers. Right now I am able to use VLOOKUP with the product name and named range from lookup sheet but I seem forced to use the column number rather than column heading name. As there are a lot of columns it's easy to lose track or make mistakes. Column name would be much preferred. We are still using Excel 2000.

Example of current reference:
=VLOOKUP("productname",mainlist,24,0)

I would like to use something other than 24 for the lookup column, like 'packagename' instead. I have reviewed the INDEX and MATCH functions but haven't figured out how to accomplish what I am after. Incidentally, 'mainlist' is a named range in a separate workbook but referencing as shown above has worked without a hitch.

## Counting Names In A Column

May 10, 2006

I have a list of 60,000 names in a spreadsheed, column A has the NAME, Column B the STREET NUMBER and Column C the STREET NAME. Heres a small sample.

CHALWIN E100733RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
JAQUE D J101263RD ST
BAXTER P M101593RD ST
BAXTER P M101593RD ST
MCLEOD E A101603RD ST
MCLEOD E A101603RD ST
MCLEOD E A101603RD ST

As you can see some of the names repeat, and that is exactly what I want. I want to write a formula in Column D that will indicate how many times each name appears so that it will show, for example, a "5" beside JAQUE D J" and a "2" beside "BAXTER P M".

I have tried using EXACT, MODE, IF ... COUNTIF wouldn't work because there will be some names that are duplicate but at different addresses, besides the range would be enormous.
