# Matching 2 Fields In 2 Columns And Copying A 3rd Field Into The 3rd Column

Oct 8, 2009

I need a formula. Probably Vlookup. I'm having a LOT of trouble trying to figure out how to "phrase" the formula so let me explain what it is I'm trying to do. If a cell in Sheet 1 Column AS and a cell in Sheet 2 Column B match exactly, I want the cell in Sheet 2 Column C that is in the same row as the matched cell in Sheet 2 Column B to be copied into Sheet 1 Column BB in the same row as the matched cell in Sheet 1 Column AS.

For example, if cells in S1 Column AS and S2 Column B both have the name "LOS ANGELES" then "KLAX" will be copied from cell in S2 Column C (in same row as "LOS ANGELES") to S1 Column BB (in same row as "LOS ANGELES").

## How To Sort Columns By Directly Matching Fields

I have a large list like this:

A 1
B 2
C 3
D 4
E 5

I need only values pertaining to C and D. How do I sort the columns so it becomes like:

C 3
D 4

The rest I don't need.

## Matching Fields In First Column With Rest Of Spreadsheet

Jun 3, 2014

The order of column A can not change as I need to find the matching row of information and transfer that information

Not all values have a matching row.

Rows are match on PCN number but need all the values in the rows

I have attached a workbook with starting and desired end results

## Concatenate Two Text Fields BUT Left Adjust First Field And Right Adjust Second Field

## Matching Two Tables - Copying Data For Matching Value?

Feb 27, 2014

I have two tables, Table1 one has only customer codes in it, and I have Table2 with plenty of customer codes and those customer name, surname, age, location...

And I want to match and copy each of those customer codes in Table 1 all the information which is on Table2

Table 1:
50025
50026
50086

Table 2: Considering that name, age and location is each in separate cell

50025JohnSecond25Location 1
60085EmilyThird 20Location 2
45454Wilhelm Fourth35Location 3
10000RoseFifth 60Location 4
50086JohnySixth 45Location 5
65501JacobSeventh18Location 6
50026Jackie Eighth22Location 7

And the outcame should be that it finds the value from Table1 in Table2 and copy's information in Table 1 like this:

50025 JohnSecond25Location 1
50026 Jackie Eighth22Location 7
50086 Johny Sixth 45Location 5

## Matching Name Fields

Oct 23, 2009

I have a list of company names and I need to find the duplicates. Of course pivot table finds the exact matches, but how do I find duplicates when only 1 character is off. Like punctuation or "s" or a mistype of a single character?

Example:
Jo Blo inc
Jo Blo inc.

Jo Blo inc
Jo Blo icn

Joe Blo inc
Jo Blo inc

## Leave Fields Blank Until Number Is Entered In Other Field?

Jan 15, 2014

I created this formula =G2*2.9%+.3

what I am trying to do is take the number in the G column multiply it by 2.9% and add 0.30. For instance if 20.00 is in the G2 cell, the number I want the formula to produce is .88

the formula works for me but what happens is the rest of my sheet that does not have any numbers in the G column gets filled with .30

How do I prevent the formula from calculating if the G column is blank?

## Auto Fill Macro For Fields Below Active Field

Apr 9, 2014

I need a simple macro to use for conditional autofill of cells below the active cell (to the end of the sheet) with the text that is being entered in the active cell.

DESCRIPTION: I have two columns of data, the first (call it Col1), has a word number which is unique to each specific word in a foreign language, every cell in this column has a number in it from 1 to 30000. Each number reoccurs many times in cells over the length of this column.

The other column (call it Col2) is blank. As I type words in english in each cell of this column, I need the macro to autofill the text that I have just entered, into every cell in Col2 where it's Col1 number is a match with the Col1 number where I am typing.

For example, in one row, Col1 has the number "21" and I type in Col2 the word "run". I need the macro to find every row where the number 21 is found in Col1 and automatically enter "run" into Col2 at that location.

The macro must only autofill cells which have no data in them. Preferably from that cell down, although if that is not possible, all cells would work seeing we are only replacing blank cells with data.

## Using Pivot Table Summary Fields In Calculated Field?

Jan 21, 2012

I am trying to use a summary field in the pivot table in a new calculated filed, but am unable to do so. Let me first describe the context so its easier to understand:

I have a collection of customer purchase records, which look like the following:

Customer Name, Customer ID, Purchase Amount, Activation Date
-------------------------------------------------------------
John , 100 , \$150 , 2011-04-01 17:07:50.0
John , 100 , \$250 , 2011-04-01 17:07:50.0
Paul , 101 , \$125 , 2011-08-20 11:10:27.0

I have several 1000 records like the above and I need to create a summary report which looks like:

Customer Name, Total purchased, Activation date, Avg monthly purchase
-----------------------------------------------------------
John , \$350 , 2011-04-01 , \$175

The average monthly purhcase needs to be calculated based on the date of report generation. So in the case above, the average is calculated as of 2011-06-01.

In order to generate the report above, I created a pivot table with "Customer Name" in the "row labels" section and "Pruchase amount" and "Activation date" in the "values" section of the pivot table. When I try to calculate the "Avg Monthly Purchase", I'm running into the following problems:

1. The activation date is not being displayed as a date, but instead shows 0, when I set the value field settings to "Min"

2. I tried to create the "Avg Monthly Purchase" as a Calculated Field and then use the "Sum of Purchase Amount" field that the pivot table calculates. However, I'm unable to reference the "Sum of Purchase Amount" field in the calculated field.

## Listing Pivot Table Field List Fields

Oct 17, 2006

Is there any code or way to generate the compete list of fields that are selectable from the " PivotTable Field list"?

I have various cubes I need to check and compile the list of fields for each.

## Matching Two Worksheets Using Two Fields

I have two worksheets. Each have a common value in two cells. An ID and a currency amount. One worksheet also has a payment date. I need a worksheet that combines the two, along with the payment date.

## Return Value In Third Column If Values In First Two Columns Matching?

Mar 20, 2014

I have a two different workbooks book 1 and book 2 with some data.

If values of first two columns ( Column A and B) of both workbooks are matching then I want a formula that can return the value of third column (column c) of book 2 in book 1 column c.

example:

Book 1

column A / Column B / Column C

100 / 200 /

Book 2

Column A / Column B / Column C

100 / 200 / 300

now I want a formula that can return in column C of book 1 to display 300.

And the data runs across some 100 rows in both workbooks.

Here you can see 4 columns (C, D, E, F)

I would like to compare Column C, D, E, F and If column C = Column E., i would like to show the result from column F to Column d.,

For example:
For column E >> The result in column F is: Port Blair.,

I would like that to be in Column D after a match.

Is there any forumula which will do this.,

## How To Create Calculated Field Based Off Two Avg Fields In Pivot Table

Feb 12, 2014

I have a Pivot table that pulls the Avg of two fields for two months, see example below.

Avg Gross \$ Avg Net \$
Jan 2014 20 10
Feb 2014 30 20

sample 1.png
See sample attached.

The Avg Gross and Net is shown by going into the values and selecting "Summarized value by -> Average".

On the right side of this Pivot, what I wanted to do is to show a Avg Gross to Net \$ in this pivot. So the formula should take "Avg Gross \$" - "Avg Net \$" = Avg Gross to Net \$.

I am having trouble calculting this new field in the pivot table using a calculated field because the Calculated field pulls the variables from the existing field list and there isn't a field called "Avg Gross/Net"....I need to find a way to calculate the Avg Gross to Net into the Pivot table so I can pull a pivot graph out of it.

## Taking Matching Fields And Numbering Them

Jul 15, 2009

I have a column where a lot of the fields match. What I want to do is set up a formula where all of the matching fields are numbered (1,2,3,etc). For instance:.......

I want the numbering to read the matching items and count them (not a sum but rather just a numbering/ordering column)

This is what I would want it to look like:...........

## Matching Up Fields With Variable Input

Oct 12, 2009

Example:
Order Number from VendorOrder Number from SupplierTracking Number from Supplier12345123451ZABCD13456134561ZBCDE134561ZCDEF14567145671ZDEFG1456714567

In these three orders, the first order nubmer has a 1-to-1 relationship with a single tracking number. In the second, there are two different tracking numbers associated with one number from column A. In the third, there is only one tracking number but three different lines of the same order number that need to be updated with it.

The question is, is there a way to line up data fields head to head even when there are variable inputs like this?

## Matching 2 Fields And Making A Selection

## Moving Data From Rows To Columns - Depending On Unique Content In A Field In Column

Jun 24, 2014

I have a worksheet which contains 2 columns which is needed to work my problem.

Unique Work ID and Description

The unique work ID are the same for each description, but there are up to 5 different description associated with each unique work id.

I'm looking for an automated process but where to start to convert the 5 rows in the unique row and 5 column for the descriptions

## VBA Code To Float,value,down Column For Index/Matching Value Of Other Columns

Mar 6, 2009

I would like to amend my macro w/ additional code that will allow me to view the value in column A, if a subject is chosen from list from columns D or E. Choosing a singal subject to view from row2,from column,D or E will cause the value in column A to not be seen if the subject does not correspond with the row the value is located. Is there a way to match values from corresponding/matching column values with the rows with values in columnA? And. allow if match found to display/list the value in the first empty cell in column A for match? I would also like the macro to reverse match for column A.

So if a single value is selected in column A for view, then all rows for which the value pertains to will also be shown, instead of just the single row with the value.
Here's an examplary make of the booklet.

## Create Auto Populated List Field Based Off Multiple Fields

Apr 21, 2014

I have two or more fields of data, where parts of them are auto populated based on inputs from elsewhere. That part i have working fine, however the problem arises in taking that information and displaying it as a Bill of Materials list on another tab in my excel file. I want to take the information, and only display it in the BOM tab if that piece of information is being used (ie item count field not being 0). I know how to do that part in a rather simple format, however i'd prefer to make it so that when i have the list, and a certain item isn't used then its not included in the BOM, and an empty space is not left behind. I would prefer this to be all be done automatically by a formula if possible instead of just having to resort to sorting the table every time the tool is being used.

Is this even possible in excel, A quick example doc is attached, shows 2 example fields. i'd like to take the information from those 2 fields. and somehow create a single list, with a single heading along the top, with all row containing a 0 "Unit Count" to be omitted entirely from the list, and not have a blank space where the item should be. Keep in mind these fields may be greater than 2, and may not be position one after the other in a strait down line.

## Pivot Table Field List - Choose Multiple Fields At Same Time

Nov 9, 2011

In the "Pivot Table Field List" I have the option to "Choose fields to add to report". I have a large number of fields that I want to choose and "Add to Values" - so it is tedious to select each item individually.My question: Is there any possible way select multiple fields at the same time? e.g.

a "select all" option, orhighlighting a range of the available fields (either by dragging or holding the shift key)I've looked / tried above with no luck.

Any Excel Add-Ins out there that might address this? I'm fearing not since my searches have come up empty.

## Excel 2007 :: Sorting Pivot Table Columns By Column Field Label (date)

Jun 30, 2014

I have a pivot table with multiple row fields and multiple column fields. One of the column fields is a Date and I need some VBA that will auto-sort the columns into ascending order by the Date column field.

E.g., if the first four column labels are "2-Jun-2010, 13-May-2009, 16-May-2013, 17-May-2012" then i want the sort to arrange them as "13-May-2009, 2-Jun-2010, 17-May-2012, 16-May-2013".

Note: This is the left to right order of the columns i'm talking about, not the top to bottom order of the rows, or the data in the rows but specifically the column labels.

I've tried googling a solution and I can find a variety of code that deals with sorting the data in the rows in all sorts of ways, but nothing on how to order the columns.

i'm using excel 07, and the source data for the pivot table has the Date field formatted as custom "dd-mmm-yyyy". This can be changed if necessary.

## Populate Fields Based On Matching Numbers

I've been racking my puny brain for an hour trying to figure this out. Basically, my problem is with the last 2 invoices listed. If one invoice has "PO CLOSED" on it, I want all other invoices on that same PO to say the same thing. Surely I can do this with a formula or conditional formatting, but I cannot think of how.

## Field Matching Formula

May 4, 2009

I browsed through the forum looking to find a way to solve my problem, but could not find it. Maybe someone here can help me out.

I have lots of data, and it would be impractical to do it manually. Here is an example: ...

## Copying Certain Columns From One Sheet To Another Based On Value On One Column (with Feedback)

Mar 2, 2014

I have a master data sheet with the structure as below: I need a few of the columns (i.e. not all) to be copied to another (filter) sheet (starts from Row 20 say). The "notes" column should be fed back to the master list. If the condition changes in the master list, the entire row (including the data entered in notes) should be removed on the filter sheet.

The filter sheet structure is as below:

I initially used Index, Small, Countif to pull data to the filter sheet but could not "input" into the cells as they all held formulas in order to copy to the new sheet.

## Change/Move Pivot Table Row Field To Column Field

Apr 23, 2008

In building my pivot table my data that I want to show in the column area is showing up as rows stacked on top of each other. In the column section I'm trying to show Total Budgeted Amount next to Total Actual Amount but on the layout it's showing the two stacked on top of each other is there some kind of hidden key that I'm missing?

## Error When Copying And Pasting Fields With Validation

Feb 24, 2009

I have created a daily operating room schedule in which each time slot has a drop down box for the Doctor doing the procedure and the Group of doctors from which he/she came.

It is a yearly schedule with each day of each month duplicated on a tab for that month - the same daily schedule for each.

I have been able to duplicate each day right up until the 25th of the month in which I attempt to save the spreadsheet and am given an error stating it can not save some of the data, though the data appears to be intact (the validation drop down lists)

Upon closing and reopening the spreadsheet, all of the cells that contain validation including and after the 25th of the month are simply gone.

I have attempted to attach a copy of the file but I keep encountering an error with the database.

Zip file with xls file has been added
