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.

I have two lists of email addresses in columns and I need to find the matches between columns and have those addresses returned to perhaps a third column.

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"

I have two sheets with pretty much the same content but not exactely. I need to compare the data from the first sheet to the data in the second sheet in this way: data from column b (numbers) in the first sheet needs to be compared to data in column b in the second sheet. if this dosen't match it needs to go to the next line. if the match is positive it needs to compare the data from column d on the first sheet to the data on the second sheet same column and copy the data from the first sheet's column d to the second sheet's column d. But only if the data in column d on the first sheet isn't blank. If it is it should leave the data on column d second sheet intact.

I am trying to compare mutiple columns of data, match them and copy select data. Find matching cells in 2 different columns and copy select info into that row. See file attached

I have a spreadsheet that I would like to loop through column "C" and if criteria is met copy and paste A:C on sheet1 to sheet2 over multiple columns alternately. What I mean by alternately is that I would past the first row in column A6 then the second in E6 then the third in A7 and so on until all items are copied. I purposely left a blank column between both columns of information. I've tried sorting/and advance filtering and couldn't get it to work.

Example: loop through column "C" If I have the Letter "A" copy data to column "A" and "E" alternately back an forth until I no longer meet the criteria. I start putting data on the 6th row due to header information in rows 1-5. ... If column "C" is the letter "B" copy to column I,M,Q,U

Lastly I could always have less rows of information than I do columns. SO the last column could be empty. I always sort my data by column "C" so data will be sequential.

I would like to match column data in a source spreadsheet to column data in a target sheet. If a match is found, I would like to copy the corresponding row range from the source sheet to a separate, third sheet. For values where no match in found in the a target sheet, I would color the unmatched cell in the target sheet red. If a match was found, the cells would be colored green. The data in the Source sheet is in column A, while the Data in the Target sheet is in Column T. The data will be pased in the third sheet in Column T preserving original formats

I have this code, gleaned from several postings on this forum that somewhat works. The problem is that I get false mismatches (i.e. some cells get colored red even when there is a match and the data got copied to the third sheet) even though there are no duplicates. I have made sure that the formats are identical in both Target and Source sheets to try to fix this. Also, I don't want to cut the entire row , but just copy and paste a row range onto a third sheet. The column and row ranges are variable. I am attaching a file.!!

Sub CutRows() Dim i As Long, k As Long, n As Variant, r As Range Application. ScreenUpdating = False With Sheets("Source") Set r = Range(.Cells(1, 9), .Cells(65536, 6).End(xlUp)) End With k = 0 i = 6 While Not IsEmpty(Sheets("Target").Cells(i, 20)) n = Application.Match(Sheets("Target").Cells(i, 20).Value, r, 0) If IsNumeric(n) Then Sheets("Target").Cells(i, 20).Interior.ColorIndex = 35 k = k + 1 Sheets("Source").Rows(n).Cut Sheets("Sheet3").Rows(k) Else Sheets("Target").Cells(i, 20).Interior.ColorIndex = 3 End If i = i + 1 Wend Application.CutCopyMode = False Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub

I have this code that compares two columns on two different sheets when it finds a match it then puts the match on that sheet your running it from in my case sheet 2. However i want to change this slightly and im having a hell of a time. I want to match but when tha match happens i want it to copy the cell next to the match.

I have a macro that would check data in Column A and validate if a particular number is repeating, then for that number go to column B, Take the Values from there go to a new sheet and paste the values in a row.

I need to the macro to get the data not from the second cell.

Below is my macro

Sub test() Dim idRange As Range, c As Range Dim uniqueID As String Dim destSht As Worksheet, sourceSheet As Worksheet Dim r As Long Dim i As Integer Dim map As Object, key, item

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"

I have a list of values in a column. In that column, I want to find 50 possible matches. Is this possible in Excel? In the column there are multiple strings of text.

After it finds these 50 potential matches, the formula should return a value next to the cell where it matched. PLEASE HELP IF THIS POSSIBLE.

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. Each sheet will list the same shop about 10 times as they make numerous transactions so each one is listed. The list on each of the 4 sheets can be any length and will change week to week depending on how many sales there are.

What i want is to find shops that appear in more than one week and have then appear on a list on a 5th sheet, i.e. my good performers sheet!

I have a spreadsheet with 3 columns: Name, Number and percentage. I need a formula to return the name that has the percentage and the 2nd highest percentage. the spreadsheet has 5 rows, not including the columns labels.

I want to vlookup from sheet2 cell E2 to find all matches in sheet1 in coulmn G and add totals together in coulmn E. The match I am looking for is used in several rows of coulmn G on sheet1. I only want cell E2 on sheet2 to give me total amount from data in coulmn E of sheet1 when a match is found in coulmn G of sheet1.

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

I am looking to create a code that searchs a column to see if there is word similar to the input (As in it's the same part name with a missing or extra letter or a space), and then return the first matched word.

I have many small spreadsheets of data organised into 4 columns and anything upto 250 rows. I want to be able to test if all the cells along each row have the same data in each of the 4 cells, so 4 occurences of the same thing. Each row of data will be different. (I'm not intertested in matching the data going down the column).

However, I won't know with each spreadsheet what is the exact data I will be looking for - if all 4 cells don't have the same data, that is fine as this will then require my manual attention which is the purpose of my project. I just want to avoid having to check through lots of rows of data where all the data does already match.

The data will usually be text but it can be IP addresses and numbers too. I need a formula or set of operators to use for is exercise.

i have one work sheet. Column A contains 800 names bolumn B contains 15,000 names. I need to compare column A to column B then if the name exists displat the names in a seperate column.

I have two columns of card numbers (16 digits) in text format, as column A and column B. In column C, I'm trying to figure out how to compare column A and B for matches, and display the match in column C, if there is a hit.

I need to line XYZ to XYZ as well as the information attached to XY&Z i dont really know how else to explain it but i was hoping there was a macro or something out there that i could use to do this would make it a lot easier

I've been searching for a method to compare two large columns of numbers and remove replicates from the "main" column. Column A has all the numbers that are in column B and many more. I want to remove all the numbers from column A that are in column B. The result being two columns with no matching numbers. (or a third column that has only the numbers from 'A' that are not in 'B').

My search results on this forum have found results that compare rows for matches & can make deletions; and also one method that could mark all the entries that were duplicates in both columns, but nothing to remove them. The datasets I am using have over 400k entries in some columns, so manual removal of marked ones is not feasible. I need an automatic deletion method.

I have a macro that I am working on which I have gotten stuck on. It compares Column A and Column C and any numbers which match are pasted into Column D.

What I am getting stuck with is I need to copy and paste the data for column B to Column E as well. So in other words.

If column A and B match then the number from Column A that matches B will be pasted in column D along with the value that is right next to it in Column B.

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.

I know there is a forumla to compare a small database to a list, but can't find it (I used to use French Excel).

Here is an example :

In a sheet, my small database :

(in two different cells)

Value1 and ValueA Value2 and ValueB Value3 and ValueC

etc...

In another sheet, my list :

I have a list where there's a lot of Value1, Value2... in one column, and in the next column, a lot of ValueA, ValueB....

I want to check in my list : if I have Value1, then, on the same row (next column) I have ValueA, if I have Value2, then, I should have in the same row (next column) ValueB....

And if I have Value1 and in the same row (next colum) ValueB, I want some kind of "Error" text.

Can't find this function nor (of course) the criteria to use it correctly.
