# Matching Columns And Obtaining The Value?

Dec 18, 2012

I have two worksheets, sheet 1 and sheet 2. On sheet 1, I have a information on two columns (Column A and B) Column a has information up to row 10 (aaa, bbb, ccc, ddd, ...). On column B, I have 111, 222, 333 . I have same information on Sheet 2. However, sheet two has an additional column (Column C) with 10 rows on information z, y, x, w, v ...

What I need to do is to match column A and B in sheet 1 to column A and B in sheet 2 and if both columns matches on the same row, copy the value in sheet 2, column C and paste it on sheet 1 column C.

Important: Information on sheet 2, column B may be twisted (As they may not appear exactly the same as in sheet 1. Which means 111,222,333 can be 222,333,111 along the column). Therefore, need to match the entire range.

## Matching 2 Columns On One Worksheet With 2 Columns On Another?

Apr 24, 2013

i need to match 2 columns on one worksheet with 2 columns on another.

One column is alphanumerical (Reference Numbers), the other is company names.

I need to ensure that both the Reference and Company name match from one sheet, with the company and reference from another.

e.g if A1 and B1 on Wks 1 = A1 and B1 on Wks 2 = TRUE, anything else is FALSE.

There is likely to be Reference number and Comapny name duplicates, therefore the trick is to ensure that the number of duplicates match?(I.E ABC Company, Reference number 1234 may appear 5 times on worksheet 1, however if it is only on Worksheet 2 4 times, then this must be flagged).

## Matching Columns

May 6, 2009

I want to add these numbered steps onto the macro I already have, which I pasted below.

1. Starting in Row 2 in the worksheet named Report 1 look at contents in Column A then look at the contents in Column C, if the contents in Column C do not match exactly the contents in Column A then copy the contents in the range column C:E from that row till the last row in Column C:E.

2. Now we will have a range that is made up of cells from C:E. I would like to move that range down a row at a time, until the first cell in Column C from the range Column C:E matches exactly the contents in Column A. Then I would like to continue this pattern for every row in the worksheet.

## Matching Values Between Two Columns

Jun 27, 2014

I need creating a formula that matches the values between two separate columns with results from that matching in the third and fourth columns.

Example: Column A contains the first set of values and column B contains the second set of values. The result in column C would be all the values that are in both columns A and B and the result in column D are all the values that are not found in both columns A and B.

Column AColumn BColumn CColumn D
122123123122
123133322133

## Matching Two Columns To Return One Value

Mar 7, 2014

Alright, so I need data in column A(Last names) and data in column B(First name) to match their respective names on another sheet. When a match is made, it will return column C(Hours worked).

I originally used Vlookup to match last names, something akin to =VLOOKUP(A:A,Week1!A:P,4,FALSE)

But this does not account for employees that may have the same last names. Is there a way to combine two vlookup's? Or is Index a possible solution?

## Matching Names From Different Columns

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?

## Matching And Sorting With Two Columns?

Jul 23, 2013

I am trying to 'stagger sort' multiple columns, but am having some difficulties.Ex.

Say A and B are lists of part no and C is data corresponding to column B. I have:

A B C
1 2 .
2 3 ,
4 4 ;
5 7 '
8 9 "

I want:
A B C
1 _ _
2 2 .
_ 3 ,
4 4 ;
5 _ _
_ 7 '
8 _ _
_ 9 "

(the _ are just supposed to be empty place holders, without them I have formatting issues)

Is there a 'quick' way to sort them this way?I am attaching the actual file that I am working with.

## Matching Two Columns Of Two Different Sheets

Jun 3, 2014

My requirement is to match 2 columns of two different sheets. I know about Vlookup for exact matching but here I neeed to do partial matching.

Output should be like this in different column: Opera, 104/Main Street

## Matching Data From 2 Columns

Dec 21, 2005

I have 2 columns of data. Both should ultimately have identical data,
but both have extranious data I need to separate. These lists will be
300+ long, so by hand is taking forever. Example:
Column A Column B
12345 12344
12346 12345
12347 12346
12348 12347
12349 12349

I need a way to extract the 12344 from column B since it is not in A,
and 12348 from A since it is not in B. They do not have the same number
of entries.

## Matching The Value Of Two Columns In Different Worksheet

Apr 22, 2009

I have a problem in my list cheking. I have two sheets in my attached excel file. I have mordified for my own job security purpose. I need to check the individual cells of "parent" column in "Missing Asset" with "parent" column of "Asset" worksheet. It means, presence of cell text of A2 of "Missing Asst" sheet has to be checked with "A" Column of "Asset" sheet. If A2 text is present in "A" Column of "asset" sheet then "Y" should appear in B2 cell of "Missing Asset" sheet. Else "N". Its just Column text checking wothin two work sheet & then identify the cell which is not match. I guess "VLOOK" can work. Is it not?

## Looking Up And Matching Rows To Columns?

Sep 17, 2013

I have a document where there are hundreds of rows and columns. The rows contain lines of data, while the columns are topics. Each row needs to be traced to an appropriate column. Once traced, I simply check off the appropriate cell with an X. I have to make sure that each row has at least one "X".

I have attached a sample file. look at cell B8. The statement in this row reads "Issue Placard information and registration". Now, I already know what column this statement belongs to (column CT).... but I don't want to scroll over hundreds of columns to that particular column, or have to freeze any panes, to locate that cell and mark it off. I have been doing this manually and it is incredibly tedious and time-consuming. Is there a way where I can locate the appropriate cell and go to it without having to scroll? When I'm scrolling I have to not only scroll, but I have to read the rows and columns again to make sure they indeed match. I want to be able to locate the right cell instantaneously and just enter an X value.

## Matching Up Values From 2 Columns

Jun 30, 2009

I have two columns of data, in A and B. Column A has about 500 rows of numbers, while column B only has about 150. All the numbers that are in column B exist in column A.

(Column B is a monthly product production list, while column A is a "master list" of all products that can be produced)

I need someway to match the data in Column B with Column A so they line up.

I was thinking something like this, but don't know how to do it:

"Where value in column A = value in column B, then copy this data into cells D1 and E1" (so the values line up next to each other)

is this possible? Maybe with some advanced filter? Or a macro? It seems kind of silly, but I just need to have the data next to each other without doing it manually.

## Matching Data In 2 Columns

Mar 15, 2007

## Matching Two Columns In Two Sheet

Aug 2, 2008

I have two worksheets and I want to match two columns from each worksheet and return me a respond with "yes" or "no" For example:

Sheet 1

Name Item

ABC 123
DEF 456
GHI 789

Sheet 2
Name Item
ABC 123
DEF 789
GHI 134

So, I want to search the "name" column in Sheet 1 with Sheet 2, if they found the name is matching, then search for "item" column in sheet 1 with the "item" in sheet 2. If they both match, I want to return with a "yes" if not return value "no" in a different column #3.

I tried to do it, but it keeps on finding "789" in column 1 with "789" in column even though the name is different, it still return me a value of "yes."

## Index Matching With Multiple Columns

Oct 14, 2008

I'm trying to have a cell where I return the minimum value of column A but only when column B equals 380 and when C equals 80. I know how to do it if I select my range manually to be the range including all the 380's and 80's but I'd like to select the entire data set to look through so that I can easily change the criteria to say finding the minimum in Column A when B equals 420 and C equals 40.

## Matching One Cell To Multiple Columns?

How to match one cell against multiple columns.

I have numbers in columns a through cc and cannot put them in descending order. I am using this formula:

=match(CF1,A10:A1008,0) I have to use a new cell and type the same formula =match(CF1,B10:B1008,0) then again =match(CF1,C10:C1008,0) I AM RUNNING OUT OF ROOM! Is there anyway to search all columns =match(CF1,A10:CC1008,0) ?? This formula doesn't work when I type it in.

I have tried shift control enter for an array and still no go.

I have tried vlookup
I have tried Index

## Two Tabs - Finding Matching 3 Columns

Apr 2, 2013

I currently have two tabs. Tab A (Error Report) spit out a bunch of records that I need to find in the raw data/remove them. The value in column C in Tab A refers to Column A in Tab B (Data), and Column D in Tab A matches with Column N in Tab B, and Column E in tab A refers to Column C in tab B.

I want to know how I can find the records that match those 3 columns in the First Error Report Tab as I need to find those records and delete them as they are, as you can see, errors!

## Matching Names To Values Using Two Columns?

Jul 17, 2014

I have a worksheet that has a compilation of reports, each of which has multiple columns that aren't necessarily organized in an Excel-friendly way. However, the first column contains a list of "name" headings (titled "Name") and the second adjacent column always lists the actual name right beside it. Similarly, each person has a value heading in the first column (titled "The Value") and the actual value in the second column. What I would like to be able to do is have Excel search for the Name heading, paste the value in the adjacent column (the actual name) in a cell in a new worksheet, then search for "The Value" and do the same thing in the column adjacent to the one where the actual name was copied. The catch is I need Excel to do this and then search again for "Name", skip it, and start again with the first part of the procedure until all names and their associated values are matched. how to do something like this in VBA?

## Find Matching Number In Two Columns

Jun 11, 2009

## Matching Data In 2 Columns To Return 1.

Feb 19, 2008

I'm working on a excel sheet to compare data of 2 columns. One column (or array), let's say C3:C13 contains "x" in some of its cells. The other column, let's say P3:P13, contains "d" in some of its cell. What I would like to do is compare the cells of the same row, see if they contain any data and return 1.

So if C3 contains an "x" and P3 contains a "d", therefore it returns 1. If C4 doesn't have an "x" and P4 has a "d", it will return a 0.

The closest I can get to this is the following formula

=SUM(IF(AND(C3="x",P3="d"),1,0), IF(AND(C4="x",P4="d"),1,0), IF(AND(C5="x",P5="d"),1,0), IF(AND(C6="x",P6="d"),1,0)), IF(AND(C7="x",P7="d"),1,0)), IF(AND(C8="x",P9="d"),1,0)), IF(AND(C6="x",P6="d"),1,0))...

However, this formula is way too long. Is there another way of writting or simplifying this formula?
