# Macro - Comparing Values In One Column

Nov 13, 2009

I'll try my best to explain what I'm trying to do here using Excel macro (i've very limited knoledge in VBA ). I am working on a project where I'm using an actuator to measure micro-switches. The values are then extracted using HyperTerminal via RS232 and transferred to Excel to filter the values and display only the ones that are important.

Here is what I'd like to do via a Macro:

Compare cells in column A (e.g A1 and A2, A2 and A3, A3 and A4 etc.)

Example:

A
0
300
550
1200
1700
1900
2200
2000
1850

[Code]....

So first, if the values increase, do nothing and keep comparing other values. If we find the values decrease, display the larger value between the two, in this case it's the value 2200 that we want to display.

Next, the values will be decreasing progressively. We'll do the comparison between 2 values but this time if the values decrease, do nothing until we find a value increases. Display then the smaller value between the 2, here it's 1500.!

## Macro To Give Count Of Unique Values After Comparing Comma Separated Values?

Mar 2, 2014

I need a Macro (not formula) which compares the comma separated values present in Column "I" with individual values present in Column "D" and generate the count of unique values in Column "J".

The sample sheet has been attached for reference.

## Comparing Values (to See Any Duplicated Values Using Macro) ?

Sep 14, 2008

on a sheet i have 2 column with values.

For e.g

DevID DevNum
123 s123
123 s234
987 sabc
987 sabc

Is there a way where i can compare the values in DevNum with the same DevID
to see if theres any duplicated values using macro?

## Comparing Text Values In Two Cells And Adding 1 To Result Column

Apr 14, 2013

I have an excel file with some data in it. I have two columns with one of four words in it. For simplicity I'll call them RED, GREEN, BLUE, and Yellow. A few columns over I have columns "Same" "Good" and "Bad". I'm trying to figure out a way to get excel to put a 1 in the appropriate column, if cell A1 is Red I need excel to look at the word in cell B2 and put a 1 in the "same" column if A1 and B1 are the same word. If the word in B2 is Yellow I need excel to put a 1 in the "Good" column. If the word in B1 is GREEN or BLUE I need it to put a 1 in the bad column. The tricky part is each of the four words RED, GREEN, BLUE, and Yellow have a different set of words that will be called "good" or "bad". So if the word in cell A1 if Green for example it will have a different set of good and bad color words.

So it seems I need four different functions depending on what word is in A1. In the column next to these lists of words I have the date which I'll need to use to give me the sums of same, good, and bad for each day. But first things first. I think I need to use a combination of IF functions and MATCH function, but I can't figure out anything that works. Below is what I'm hoping it will look like when I've got the right formulas.

First column
Second column
Date
Same
Good

## Comparing Values In One Column And Inserting Multiple Blank Rows

Oct 13, 2006

I am working on formatting a spreadsheet report where the values will change in column A. Here is what I would like to do via a Macro. Compare the cells in column A (e.g., compare A2 to A3, compare A3 to A4, and so on). If the values between the two cells in column A are different, insert three blank rows and set the active cell to the next cell following the blank lines. Example:

if cell A5 is different from A6, insert three blank rows below row 5 and new active cell is now A9 and the comparison would start again. I have been trying to code the macro for this but with no success. Here is the macro I have been working on.

Sub Macro1()
Const NumRow As Integer = 3
Dim StartCell As Range
Dim RowNR, NewCnt As Long
Dim RowCount As Long
Dim Count As Long
Dim intRow As Integer
Dim bFmtComplete As Boolean
RowCount = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA _
(Range("A1", Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)))
bFmtComplete = False
RowNR = 2
Range("A1:J1").Select
' Rows("1:1").Select
Selection.Copy................

## Comparing Two Columns And Returning Number Of Cells In One Column With Higher Values?

Apr 8, 2014

I have two Columns C and E that have dollar amounts in them. I want to compare each row in those columns and then total the number in column C that are higher that column E.

So basically C6>E6, C7<E7, C8=E8,C9>E9 should return the result of 2. There are two instances where the price in C is higher than the price in E.

## Comparing Input Value From Set Of Values 1 And Output Data From Set Of Values 2

Sep 28, 2012

Got a road block on one of the trackers which I am trying to create which compares some of our agreements. Basically we need to compare current production with our contracts and then bring the tier level they are at in order to then calculate how much in overrides we receive. Belwo is an example:

Input Value = 140000
Out Should be = 1.5%

Set of Values 1
T1
T2
T3
T4

[Code]...

In a nut shell it will look for 14000 in set of values 1 and pick T3 to then go in set of values 2 and display corresponding T3 which will be 1.5% in above example as output.

## Macro Loop To Extract Specific Values And Min/Max Values From Column/Rows Range

Jun 3, 2009

Hi, I'm very new to writing Excel Macro's and wanted to know if I could do the following. Conceptually, I understand what I need done and think it should be fairly straightforward.

There's 2 main events in this loop (I hope that's the correct terminology):

Input 1) User defines the beginning cell to start the loop. In this case, A2.

Input 2) User defines the range of columns/rows to display. The formula for rows that I've thought of is 4r. So if a user wants 20 rows below cells A2, they simply input 5 for r. The number of columns is a constant 5. So if r=5, then I'd want the range to be A2:E22......

## Comparing 2 Values.

Nov 5, 2008

Comparing 2 values.

I need to compare the value's on 2 cells. I have a sheet setup for my sales I would like to compare each day of the week. So in other words I would like to compare this Monday with last Monday and know what the percentage of my sales ether up or down is.

Example:
Last Monday = sales \$100.00
This Monday = Sales \$200.00

100%

So If sales are up I would like the percentage amount font to be in green. But if sales are down I would like the percentage amount to be in red.

## Comparing Cell Values?

May 28, 2014

I have a football score system and wish to compare the values of various cells - 2 if possible, but more if not possible.

Essentially I have a list of predictions for the score of a game (e.g. 2-1, 1-0, 0-0, 2-2 etc) in a spreadsheet, and I have a cell where I enter the correct scoreline (e.g. 2-1). The way the points system works is that if the prediction is correct (i.e. 2-1) then that player gets 3 points. If the result/outcome is correct but the scoreline is incorrect (i.e. 1-0) then the player gets 1 point. If they result/outcome and scoreline are incorrect, then that player gets 0 points.

Ideally I would link to compare 2 cells - predicted score and actual score, where the format of the scores is entered as 2-1.

However, I feel this may be easier having to columns for the score - Column A = 2 Column B = 1. In this way the scores only need to be compared cell by cell, however they would need to be compared by value for the correct outcomes.

## Comparing Values In Two Columns?

Jul 13, 2013

There are two columns A and B and values there in

A B
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
9 5
10 6
11 13
15 15

As you can see there are certain numbers that are missing between column B and A. I want to know which of the numbers that are present in column B are missing in column A ...any handy calculation ?

## If Statement For Comparing 3 Values

Jun 25, 2014

How would I write a IF statement comparing 3 values. For example the field that it would be referencing would have values cell E51(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,...99). The pull back would be:

1-10 = \$250,000
11-15 = \$550,000
16+ = \$750,000

## Comparing With Key Values In 2 Workbooks

Dec 13, 2005

I work for a financial firm. Every morning I compare today's cash balance file (sent from our custodian) with yesterday's to see if there is anything different in each portfolio cash balance column. Right now I'm doing it manually checking row by row. It'll become tedious if more and more portfolios are added. I'm looking for an efficient way I can use the portfolio codes column (as a key) to compare with previous day's file’s portfolio codes column , and list only those portfolios(in another workbook) if the corresponding cash balance column doesn't match. This is what I started doing:

Private Sub compare_cash_bttn_Click()

Dim b1 As Workbook, b2 As Workbook, b3 As Workbook

Dim w1 As Worksheet, w2 As Worksheet, w3 As Worksheet

Dim i As Integer

i = 2

Set b1 = Workbooks("CashA")

Set b2 = Workbooks("CashB")

'Set b3 = ActiveWorkbook

Set w1 = b1.Sheets(qry4rCash).........................

## Comparing Columns For Values Greater Than Each Other

Apr 27, 2009

I have two columns A and B. I need a count of how many times a value in B is greater than the same row in A. I don't want to insert a new column (e.g. for if statements to add up).

Can I insert a countif at the top to do that? I tried various countif variations but could not find the right one. Additionally any other option that does not involve adding new columns/rows.

## Comparing Previous Values Of A Cell

Nov 4, 2009

I have a cell (F2) that is auto updated with total sales units for today (Its a simple counter of individual sales). I want to detect when there is a "batch" of sales >= 10. ie. F2 may start at zero for the day and increment by 1,2,5 or 10 units at a time. If the increment is 10 units or more I would like to detect this and store the result in cell G4.

Typical values in C2: 0, 1, 6, 7, 9, 19, 21, 22 etc as new orders arrive. The larger order between 9-19 (viz 10 or more), I need to detect and store in G4. I know that I need to use both the current value of F2 (say 19) and the previous value of F2 (say 9) to perform this, but the solution eludes me.

## Comparing And Copying Values Between Dates

Feb 19, 2010

I’m attempting to find values that are within a band of .001 of the values of cells in columns L through O and searching columns B through I for values that meet the .001 criteria and copying the values to columns Q, R, S, and T respectively.

I mentioned the values in L, M, N and O are where the comparisons will be made and these values are tagged to a specific date in Column K. I need to find the dates in Column A that are in between the values of K and the cell beneath it. For example, in K4 I have a date of 10/3/99 and the next date I have in K5 is 10/5/99. I would then query Column A for the dates 10/06/99 (A4), 10/07/99 (A5), and 10/08/99 (A6). The values I need to find within the .001 band are in Columns B through I (B4:I6). Lastly, when reach the last value in Column K, query all values in Column A greater than last value in K and copy the appropriate values in B through I to Q through T.

Rules for copying data to Column Q, R, S, and T:

For Column Q-
Find values in B, C, or D that’s within plus or minus .001 of M and copy the value of B, C, or D into Column Q of the same row.

For Column R-.................

## Mod Function For Comparing Looping Values

## Comparing Cell Values In Two Worksheets

May 11, 2007

I am aware this question must have been asked to death on this forum and I already searched and found some answers but for some reason I can´t get it to work. I have two worksheets (sheet1 and sheet2). In Column E of Sheet1 I have product descriptions that I want to compare cell by cell to the product descriptions in Column F of Sheet 2. If they are not the same, color in the cell in Sheet 2. There are 1810 rows in both columns. I tried this method but it gives me an error (in spanish) that says that I cannot compare ranges of data.

I have also seen some code to do something similar (http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showpost...85&postcount=3 ):

Sub find_cell()
Range("A:E"). Find(What:=Cells(2, 6).Value, LookAt:=xlPart).Activate
ar = ActiveCell.Row
ac = ActiveCell.Column
' the two lines above store the row and column values of the cell found
' in your example ar is going to be equal to 229 and ac is 3
' now this following lines are to change the colors to red
With Cells(ar, ac).Interior
.ColorIndex = 3
.Pattern = xlSolid
End With
End Sub

I don´t quite get the "Range("A:E").Find(What:=Cells(2, 6).Value, LookAt:=xlPart).Activate" part though.

## Weeknumbers - Not Work At Year End When Comparing Values

Jun 16, 2014

I am using a formula for weeknumbers and formatting cells based on their values but have just realised it will not work at year end.

The formula in D2 is as follows:
=IF(\$C2<\$O2,"green","blank")

C2 is the weeknumber of an incident based on the actual date in B2 (e.g. 01/06/2014) and uses the formula: =WEEKNUM(B2). O2 is the weeknumber of the current day and uses the formula: =WEEKNUM(NOW()).

So cell D2 states "green" if the incident happened over a week ago, and states "blank" if the incident happened in the current week.

If I used this at year end when the incident weeknumber may be 52 and the current weeknumber may be 1 - the formula would not work as it would state "blank" rather than "green", even though the incident happened over a week ago.

How can I get the year encorporated within the weeknumber?

## Comparing Cell Values And Moving Whole Rows?

Jul 2, 2014

I'm trying to compare the values of columns B and G and if any of the cells are G < B, I would like to move the whole row into the second worksheet. And only if possible, it would be awesome if the macro could check column A for duplicates before the value comparison and sum up the column B if there are duplicates. In my example row 6 and 7 on column A have the same suppliers code and the amount totals to 2.

In this case for example, the value of the third row of G is lower than B, and therefore I would like the whole row 3 to be cut out from worksheet 1 and moved to worksheet 2.

Original view of sheet 1:
SUPPLIERSCODE
ORDERAMOUNT
PRODUCTNAME
BARCODE

WAREHOUSE STOCK

And then cut out the rows in which G

## Comparing The Column

Oct 16, 2008

I just can't get this to work. I am sure it will be easy for you all...
Here is the scenario...

Column A : has usernames of people that have paid.
Column B : has ALL usernames of people.

How can I find the usernames that have not paid? Is there a formula that can do this? Somehow compare the two columns to weed out the usernames of the people that have not paid.

## Comparing One Column Against Others

Dec 13, 2008

i am having with an excel formula.

I have a column of letters a,b,c going down in one column (A1:A30)
In B1:30,C1:C30,D1:D30 etc (up to AZ1:AZ30) I have a random selection of a,b,c's
I need to compare all other columns against column A, and have excel tell me when any one of the columns does not match EXACTLY the order of the a,b,c's in column 1. So for instance cell AC:1 does not match cell A:1, AC:2 doesnt match A:2 etc all the way to AC:30. In other words, all the cells contain a,b,c's but in a different order to A1 and thats when I want excel to flag that coloumn up in the 31st cell in the corresponding column. I hope that makes sense. I have been looking for days and now my brain is fried.

## If Statement Failing When Comparing Text Box Values On Userform

Jun 12, 2014

I am trying to compare to values that a user inputs in a user form. It's ok if they are not the same I just want the user to know it. I am only including the part where the if statement is failing:

VB:
If Me.VSLongQuant.Value <> Me.VSShortQuant.Value Then
MsgBox VerUnBal
If VerUnBal = vbNo Then
Exit Sub
End If
End If

I have VerUnBal as Long and defined as:

VB:
VerUnBal = MsgBox("The Long and Short option Qunatities are not equal." & Chr(13) & _
"Is this intended to be an unbalanced vertical spread?", vbYesNo, _

I can provide more info as necessary. There are two problems 1) the message box is appearing whether the numbers are equal or not, and 2) clicking No in the message box does not cause the Sub to exit.
