# List Names Upon Match

Jul 2, 2014

I have a spreadsheet which has the following data;

Names Age Salary
Fred 23 \$19,000
Joe 35 \$26,000
Alan 45 \$7,000
Richard 32 \$25,000
James 19 \$16,000
Ian 23 \$28,000
Michelle 30 \$45,000

I'm trying to list the names only where their age is "xx" or if I choose a certain salary, obviously there are hundreds of names, age's and salary information. How can I carry this out in excel ?

## Match Any Name From A List Against A Cell That Contains Multiple Names

Dec 22, 2012

I have a table A1:A400, where each individual cell contains multiple names (e.g. A4 =Name1; Name2; Name3)

I am trying to match a list of names in row G1:G50, and return a value of 1 or True in another column if any of the 50 names appear in a cell of row A.

Attendees
Names to be found
Rep was there

Max; Joe; Mike; Karl; Jen;
Tod
True

Max; JB;
Mike

Max; Tod; Mike
True

I have been trying this as an array formula:

{=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH(\$G\$2:\$G\$50,A2,1)),"", "True")}

But it only returns a true value for if it finds the first name from Column G.

## Search The First Name And Match Both The First And Second Names To The Main List

Mar 5, 2008

I have document1, which is a main list of surnames names, which then show 'hours', 'employment number', and 'post', in the following columns.

In document2, I have a sheet with a selection of these names, and blank cells for the named columns above.

What i need to do is have excel search and match the name from document2, to the name in document 1, and fill in the above columns with the correct data.

is that some of the surnames will show up more than once in my main list - so if possible i would like excel to then search the first name (which is in the preceding column) and match both the first and second names to the main list - OR - to simply return an error so that i can spot, and input the data manually.

## Create A List Of Unique Names From A List Of Multiple Names

Oct 21, 2009

I have a database output file where one of the columns contains managers names, often more than once. I want to apply an autofilter on manager name and then copy the result to another sheet or sheets. My criteria for the autofilter is a variable pointing to a list of names that at present I maintain by hand; a for-each-next loop then cycles through the names.

What I would like to do, before running the autofilter code, is to create the list of names via code. This would then automatically pickup names that are missing.

The code I have so far is below:

Public Sub find_managers()
Dim managers1 As Range
Dim names1 As Range
Dim n1 As Variant
Dim n2 As Variant

In my mind it should check the names in the unique list against the imported list and add any missing names.

## How To Compare List Of 1000 Names To List Of 59k Names

Jul 31, 2014

I need to compare two lists of client names. One list has 59k names to be compared to second list of 1000 names.
The list of 59k are listed in column D and the other list is in Column E. I tried conditional formatting but unfortunately some of the names are slightly different I.e. fair point communications vs fair point communications inc. I was trying to put in v lookup with a trim function but it didn't seem to be working.

## Create Dropdown That Will List All Names Starting With Initial Letter Of Names?

Jan 13, 2014

I have a long customer listing, names 5 to 36 characters and several with their location in the name as well as a few common duplicate names. I am trying to produce sheet where the customers name once selected opens in the customers spreadsheet and data can be added/amended for sales etc.The lists are not in alphabetical order as when created a customer number is automatically allocated. My aim is just to type in the first letter of the name and the dropdown appears the customer is selected and their card appears. I have tried data validation, lookup, vlookup, Dropdown and Match/find. they only return the first record found and no sign of any others. Find returned all instances of the letter appearing in every name.

## Looking Names In A List With Names Written Differently And With Duplicates

Aug 26, 2008

I am using Excel 2003 and Windows XP.

I have been given a list of my firm’s target clients (in excel) and an opportunities report (exported into excel) from our CRM system, which lists all the opportunities (i.e. opportunities to sell/provide products/services) that have been created for each client. Some of the column headings in the opportunities report are as follows:

Client; Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created etc.

What I need to do is lookup each client, from the target clients listing, in the opportunities report to see whether an opportunity has been created; and if so, return the row of values (i.e. the Opportunity ID; Opportunity Name; Opportunity Description; Created by; Date Created) for that client. The result will be placed next to the name of the client in the target client worksheet.

I have a couple of problems. Initially I tried to use the VLOOKUP function to lookup the client name in the opportunities report and return the Opportunity ID (I then planned to use the same formula to return values from the other columns); however, as the client names in the target client listing were not always written the same way as they were in the opportunities report, the formula often returned #N/A. The formula I used was

=VLOOKUP(A8,'Opportunities Report'!A2:F51,2,FALSE)

So for example, the first client that I was looking up was written as “ABC Ltd” but in the opportunities report it was written as “ABC Limited”.

My second problem was that for some clients, there were multiple opportunities listed in the opportunities report. Where this was the case, there was a separate row (repeating the client name in the first column) for each opportunity created. I think that was messing up my VLOOKUP formula as well.

Is there a way to look up the client name, from the target client listing, in the opportunities report even if it’s slightly different and return the row of values for each opportunity created for that client on a separate row?

## Reorder List Of Names With Capitalized Last Names

Feb 24, 2014

I'm trying to sort out a list of names from a website that publishes names in the following format:

DOE John
VAN GOGH Vincent
DA VINCI Leonardo
JIMENEZ RODRIGUEZ Miguel Angel

What I'd like to do is get the names in the following format

John Doe
Vincent Van Gogh
Leonardo Da Vinci
Miguel Angel Jimenez Rodriguez

Basically all the last names - which are all capitalized - would be moved to the end of the text string. Of course any leading spaces should be removed and I guess using the Proper() function, all capitalized words could be capitalized in a standard way.

I found the following function, here: [URL] ...

but what it does is just take the capitalized words and separate them into a separate cell, which is not all of what I want.

## Replace Bad Names From A List Of Good Names

May 14, 2009

create a script that will replace the names in column A on sheet1 from a Master sheet in the same workbook?

The problem is that different users are entering data on sheet1 col A in different ways example someone may enter Johnc or John C Or John What I want is for something to run down col A on sheet1 and look for the like name on the master sheet if the name matches then do nothing but if the name is like another name on the master sheet then replace the name if they are almost alike.

## Relating List Of Random Numbers To A List Of Names To Create Rota

Nov 21, 2013

I'm trying to create a staff rota which will populate a rota randomly when prompted - I have been trying to find some way of connecting the random lists and the staff names, though this has proved difficult (to say the least!). How best to proceed? I'm also fully aware of the possibility that my present design will also double book people (place then on reception and telephone duty simultaneously).

## Copying A List Of Data To List Of Range Names

Jun 5, 2006

I do not have any code for this as I am unsure if it is possible. I have a list of range names in a column (A) that refer to different sheets and in an adjacent column (B) I have a list of data. Is it possible to write VBA code that will allow me to copy each value in column B to the corresponding cell in the workbook that relates to the range name in column A.

## List Names, InputBox, Check If Name Is On The List

Sep 7, 2009

I have an excel sheet with 30 names in column A and I'm asked to do the following:
Write a procedure – a sub – that uses an input box to ask for a name. The procedure should then scan through the names in the list to search for the name and make a message box to state “X is not in the group” or “X is in the group”, where X is the name from the input box. HINT: You can make a variable “found” that starts with the value 0 and gets the value 1 if the name is found in the list.

## Inputting List Of Names From Worksheet Into A List

Dec 21, 2013

Im still pretty new toi VBA and im struggling with pulling data from another worksheet and placing it into a list. Below is the code currently I think I have identified were its not working but not sure what to do. the code should essentially do the following

on opening the workbook check CS PS data worksheet find the names of people within the sheet, These start at row six and the step between each is 82 it then should input these names one after another in the following range Range("AO3:AO43") one name per cell until the end of the dat,a it seems to run but only inputs the first name in the first cell even thought it picks up each name in the myformula piece

Within the myformula there is a concatenate piece to flip the names to opposite way round I think this is where is not working possibly something to do with the separators? each name is in the format surname, firstname it should flip it so it shows first name [space] last name

provide ive commented out the piece I think is the issue

Sub CSupdate_()
With Application
.Calculation = xlManual
.ScreenUpdating = False

## Match Names To Fastest Times

Feb 6, 2010

I thought i had worked it out, but for some reason the names aren't updating when i add a new time, and the same names appear when i add the same code for a different track. I was using this code {=INDEX(A2:A32,SMALL(IF(C2:C32<>0,ROW(C2:C32)),1),1)} as you can seen in cell A34, then added a 2 onto it for the second fastest time eg.....{=INDEX(A2:A32,SMALL(IF(C2:C32<>0,ROW(C2:C32)),2),1)}, but doesn't seem to update when adding a new fastest time in. Am i using the wrong code to match the names with the fastest times?

## Match Names And Compare Dates?

Mar 19, 2014

I've been trying for a few time to make a sub, on VBA, that writes, in a specific column, " " or 1 depending on the date that is inserted. The thing I can't quite do is:

1 - I have a sheet where the different projects of a company are stored (name, starting date, ending date and person responsible) and where new projects can be added from a UserForm

2 - I also have another sheet were costs from the projects are stored (one line with cost 1 from project 1, another with cost 2 also from project 1 and cost 3 from project 2, etc) and where I can also add a new cost with another UserForm (this cost as also a date that is added, to when it happened)

3 - What I need to do is, on the costs' sheet I need to create a sub that in the last column adds me 1 if the date of the cost added is not a date between the starting and ending date of the project that it corresponds.

## Match Rows To Column Names

## Match The Nicknames To Real Names

Feb 18, 2007

I have two lists of names and I need to identify the people that appear on both lists. Often it is difficult to match the common records because a nickname may be used for either of the first names and not the other.

I've collated an extensive list of nicknames to help match the records, but I'm stumped on how to use it. I have a feeling that there is a sumproduct formula in my future. I attached a samples workbook.

## Match Names In Two Worksheets And Get Data

## Match Work List On Partial Match?

Sep 9, 2013

I saw a post with a formula of =LOOKUP(9.99999999999999E+307,SEARCH(" "&KeyWords&" "," "&\$A1&" "),KeyWords) which I thought might work, but it returns an error.

I'm trying to search on A1 and return the correct name from a named range called KeyWords.

## Sumproduct Trying To Match Cells With Slightly Different Names

Jun 10, 2013

See attached spreadsheet. I have 2 tabs. The current portfolio tab is feeding in from the computation tab. My formula in column C works for 2 securities, MSFT, and AApl as the name is identical in both tabs. I am running into an issue where the names are not identical.

Example: I want to sum both the INTC, and the INTC pref in the computation tab and have that fill in the current portfolio tab. Also, in the computation tab ticker 005930 ks should fill in the current portolio tab for samsung electronics. My lasst issue is in the computation tab where I want to pull in sony, and sony adr (multiplied by 1,500). total sum 1,5723,995,015 in the current portfolio for sony.

## Match Names And Divide Values Across Sheets

May 7, 2014

I have two sheets. Sheet A (Receiving Log) contains all orders with NAME (D1) and QTY ORDERED(E1). Sheet B(Component Reject Tag) contains all rejects with NAME(D1) and QTY REJECT(E1). Sheet A and B are Many to Many relationship

What I am trying to figure out is:

Match the names from Sheet B to Sheet A and sum up the QTY REJECT from Sheet B divide by the sum of QTY ORDERED for the NAME from Sheet A.

Business would like to get QTY Reject percentage by each NAME (Supplier)

In a final table lets say Sheet C I would like to see NAME, QTY Ordered, QTY Reject, Ratio in which will allow my to perform a Top 10 suppliers of highest reject percentage.

Another note to mention, Sheet C presumably to have all the formulas as in Sheet A and B will be overwritten and pasted with new data.

## Where Names Match Copy Cell From One Sheet To Another

Feb 10, 2014

(Matching names)where cell G and cell H in Data Sheet matches with cell A and cell B in template sheet , copy cell K on matching row in data sheet to matching name in cell D in the template sheet.

Could be as many as 50 rows of data in data sheet and only a range of D8 to D15 in template sheet.

Can send example but I cannot see where I have option to attach the file again : place_user.xlsxâ€Ž

## INDEX And MATCH Function Using Dynamic Worksheet Names

Apr 9, 2012

I have an excel workbook with a dynamic dependent drop down list setup, works a treat on the first worksheet i set it up on.

However here's the problem, my workbook contains a good handful of worksheets each named to reflect the certificate on the page, i need the drop down list to work on each tab. problem is when i setup the index/match function it requires a specific sheet name to make it work i.e.

However what i need it to do is reference the worksheet name, as new ones get added and names may change, something like

However this doesn't work, i do have a cell on each page that holds the Sheet name using the function:

=MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,256)

But I cant even get it to use that cell as a reference in my formula.

## Index And Match Function Across Multiple Rows With Repeating Names?

Jun 4, 2014

I have a data set where the row headings repeat a lot. I have 5 headers repeated probably 30-45 times each. Eg. Truck, Car, Van, Tank, House, Car

At the moment I am using the formula...
=INDEX(\$B\$2:\$M\$45,MATCH(\$O\$2,\$A\$2:\$A\$45,0),MATCH(O4,\$B\$1:\$M\$1,0))

which will only return the result of the first occurrence of the cell it is looking for (for eg. I am looking for the values in the cells in columns labelled 'Car', is it possible for it to look past the first occurrence in the data set and find all the values?
