Find Matching Words In Two Columns

Jun 16, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with 65000 potential client surnames in column c, with contract details in neighbouring columns. I have also a spreadsheet of 6000 actual client surnames. I would like to search the large spreadsheet to make sure that none of the clients are contained in it, or if some are to highlight them.

Do I use advanced filter or vlookup? I use excel 2000 and due to the size of the first spreadsheet it takes 6 minutes to open/save e.t.c.

Compare Words Between Two Cells And Get Matching Percentage

Apr 19, 2010

I have a column with 10,000+ lines, and lots of them are duplicated.

I have a formula that tells me how many times they are duplicated, but it only looks for 100% matching cells.

Now, lots of cells are partially duplicated, for example:

A1 - Team Abcde
A2 - Team Abcde Fghi
B1 - Team Abc

I would like to have a formula giving me a percentage of how two cells are similar to each others by checking the words. In this case, B1 is 50% similar to A1 because only the word 'Team' is duplicated. B1 is only 33,34% similar to A2.

I have pulled a task of Content Managent. we are going to look at a bunch of files for a key list of words. Is there a way look at the text in a file and find a word within it?

Reporting the link to the doc.. display ... will all come later.

I know it will be slow and may run for a day or two but I would run it over the week end.

Replace Words In Cell Matching Those In A List

May 21, 2009

Im hoping there is an Excel Formula (not VBA Code) solution to this problem.

I understand how to use the Substitute command in Excel, but I would like to be able to provide a list of words and have the Substitute command use that list to replace every occurrence within a given cell with a blank ("").

The twist to this is, that the List of Words will be Dynamic, and thus the formula will need to account for that.

NOTE: the formula should NOT replace parts of words, e.g., if the List Word is "can" and the cell to be evaluated contains "candle" the formula should NOT replace the "can" in "candle" with "". Only whole word matches should be replaced.

VLOOKUP To Remove Words

Dec 8, 2009

I'm if I can create a table of words that I want removed from a column.

For example:

Red Fast Cars
Red Slow Cars
Blue Fast Cars
Blue Slow Cars

Can I setup a VLOOKUP function to remove 'Red' and 'Blue'

I know I can create multiple work sheets and use Control + H, to remove words. But that entails a lot of cutting, pasting, and filtering. Plus this example is simple, I'll be using longer text strings AND some examples might need to have 3 words removed from the same string

Match Words To A String Using VLookup

May 10, 2014

Take a look at the attached workbook.

Tab 'Internal' is an example of our internal customers and how much they spent with us.
Tab 'External' is a list of companies in our area that we could do business with, it came from a marketing firm. Columns B:J contain my formulas. B is my lookup.

I need to match the two sheets together and pull the dollars spent from Internal to External. The problem is that the marketing firm did not use the same naming conventions that are in our systems. This means a simple Vlookup will not work.

Here is what I did so far: used VBA and formulas to break apart the company names in External, then using a modified Vlookup to match the words to the names in Internal. My accuracy rate is less than 1%.

VLookup - Find Words In Sentences

May 30, 2014

The idea is try to search the words from Column C in Column A and if some key is found, show value from Column C (As a simple Vlookup but column A contains sentences):

A B C D

This is a test test 1
This is a tst excel 2
test case 3 tst 3
case for excel
test 4
tst nº 5

Excel1.JPG

And expected result should be: (column B, contains the formula):

A B C D

This is a test 1 test 1
This is a tst 3 excel 2
test case 3 1 tst 3
case for excel 2
test 4 1
tst nº 5 3

Excel2.JPG

The idea is not to use. Column C could have more of 1000 entries.

Vlookup And Matching 2 Criteria

I have an output table that looks like the followings:......

There is 1 input for the spreadsheet: What month? Enter 9, 10, 11 etc. I need it to pull from a data sheet that is set up as such:......

So effectively it needs to vlookup the name in column A, (A, B, or C), and then it needs to match that to the column that has the same name as the output table (Crit.1 or Crit.2 and the number of the month above it (10,11,etc). I attached an excel sheet to better demonstrate

VLookup - Matching Two Cells?

Dec 8, 2011

Is it possible to do the following?

Worksheet1!A2 holds a text value
Worksheet1!B2 holds a text value

Worksheet2!D2 holds a text value
Worksheet2!C2 holds a text value

Is it possible to use vlookup to find a match for Worksheet1!B2 in Worksheet2!C2 where the combination of Worksheet1!A2, Worksheet1!B2 is the same as the combination of Worksheet2!D2, Worksheet2!C2?

Add Two Matching Values Using Vlookup

Sep 17, 2009

How can i add a value suppose 10 which is in cell A2, now i use vlookup to search
lookup_value=A2(i.e.10),
Table_array=column c,
Column_index_number=1 and
range_lookup=0

so when vlookup finds the matching value the sum should be 10+10=20
also it should match -10, so that sum will be 0.

Keyword Matching And Multiple VLOOKUP

Dec 6, 2012

I am looking to automatically assign products to a relevant categories on my website and I am working on a spreadsheet. Each category is has a four digit number assigned to it and categories are limited to 3 (Primary, Secondary & Tipperary)

For example:

Computers - 1000 - Desktops - 1100 - Dual Core PC - 1101
Computers - 1000 - Desktops - 1100 - Quad Core PC - 1102

So as you can see you can tell a Dual Core PC is in the Computer & Desktop categories just by looking at the first two digits. The last two digits are the category number. 01, 02, 03 etc.

What I wish to do is associate keywords to the category determine which category that product should be assigned.

Product ID
Product Title
Product Description
Product Spec1
Product Spec2

1
HP Desktop PC
HP Desktop PC's are computers
Intel Dual Core Processor
500GB HDD

2
HP Desktop PC
HP Desktop PC's are computers
Intel Quad Core Processor
1TB HDD

Keywords assigned to category 1101 are Computers, Computer, PC, Desktop, Dual Core.
Keywords assigned to category 1102 are Computers, Computer, PC, Desktop, Quad Core.

And the spreadsheet looks like this:

The script/sum would look at all the cells and match the highest count of keywords to that particular category and populate additional fields called Cat1, Cat2 & Cat3. Therefore the final spreadsheet would look like this:

Product ID
Product Title
Product Description
Product Spec1
Product Spec2
Cat1
Cat2
Cat3

1
HP Desktop PC
HP Desktop PC's are computers
Intel Dual Core Processor
500GB HDD
1000
1100
1101

2
HP Desktop PC
HP Desktop PC's are computers
Intel Quad Core Processor
1TB HDD
1000
1100
1102

How this can be implemented? possibility with the use of VLOOKUP or MATCH commands?

I believe a vlookup would be fine but there's was only 1 value to match but as it's multiples it would need to prioritise based on the number of keywords matched and not just the first match found.

Vlookup (matching Phrases For Values)

Jul 5, 2007

I am doing a project where I have two lists, one list is much larger than the other but has more info. I need some of that info for my other list, so I have used vlookup, but it hasn't helped.

The formula that I am using is
=VLOOKUP(B2,[Report.htm]report1183662451726!$A:$B,2,FALSE)

now the value I am searching for is "ANOS" which I know is in the search column, but the answer when I search is #NA. When I take out false the right value will fill in fro "ANOS", but if two words are similar such as "ALLN" and "ALEX" then it will give the same values for both which isn't right.

Vlookup Of Partial Matching Values

May 6, 2007

I have a worksheet with 2 tabs. Tab 1 has data in two columns, column A contains a part number (6 characters long) and column B contains a value for each part number.

Tab 2 is a sheet with multiple colums of data. I need tab 2 to look at the data in tab 1 and display the value of each part number in a specific column that has corresponding part numbers but are 15 characters in length. The part numbers in tab 1 are the last 6 characters of the part numbers in tab 2.

I have been trying to use vlookup in tab 2 but it won't work because the column of part numbers in tab 2 is a full part number and the part numbers in tab 1 are only a partial part number (last 6 characters of part number in tab 2).

Tab 1 is a worksheet that is created from a Access query of a sql database. I cannot control the abbreviated part number that the query generates.

Tab 2 part numbers (the full 15 character number) also is generated from another access query which I also can't control.

Is there any way I can have tab 2 sheet look at the data in tab 1 and display the values for the part numbers in tab 2.

In the acutal project the Lookup_values and Table_arrays are in separate worksheets, but I think the example below represents the issue I'm working with.

Auto-calculate 2 Column That Contains Numbers And Words Words

Jul 16, 2009

I've been using conventional method to do this and it's time consuming. I would like to total up 2 column. A multiply B to be exact. Below are some examples:

Table 1 - Before totaling up:

Quantity
Product
5
2 x Button A White
3
4 x Button B Pink
4
5 x Ribbon A Black
2
3 x Thread A White
6
2 x Cloth A Blue

Table 2 - After totaling up:

Quantity
Product
10
Button A White
12
Button B Pink
20
Ribbon A Black
6
Thread A White
12
Cloth A Blue

I need to have the sum of the "Quantity" multiply "Product". Or in short A x B.
And the end result need to have the number and "x" sign removed while keeping on the the products names. (2 x ) Take note it's "number" space "symbol" space.

Find Words - Deleting The Words - And Deleting Some Info After The Words.

Jun 23, 2006

I am trying to find certain words in a column and delete the word and characters following. For example, Say I have a column of info as seen below. This is a test of me. I am just experimenting with this stuff. Deleted (6/15/01) Let me know what you think. I am not sure about it all, but I guess I will figure it out. riviledge1 (01/05/06) Now let's see what happens when I try to test it.

I want to find all the "Priviledge1 (01/05/06)" and replace with nothing. Please note, the date will change with each record, so I need to figure out how to tell Excel to find "Priviledge1", delete it and the date behind it. So I want to delete "Priviledge1" and the next 11 characters including the space.

How To Turn Abbreviated Words Into Full Words

Feb 4, 2013

On to the topic, I have all the US and Canadian states abbreviated (CO = Colorado, etc.) and was wondering if there is a way to make all of them convert to their respective names in one fell swoop instead of writing it in for each one, one at a time. Something along the lines where I can make, CO = Colorado, TX = Texas and then hit enter and all of the abbreviations would convert. Some kind of command.

Combining List Of Words Into New Words, Conjugation

Feb 15, 2007

I have 4-5 separate lists of words/letters and I would like to combine them in a certain order but creating all possible combinations resulting a new word. It's like a conjugation tool for verbs. For example if List 1 = be/el/ki/meg; List 2= m List3=e/; List4= gy/" "; List 5=" "/ek/sz/nnek So the output has to be (if the order is List1+List2+List3+List4+List5)= bemegy/bemegyek/bemegysz/bemesz/bemsz/elmegy/elmennek/ ..... and all possible combinations.

Preferentially I would like to automate it in a way that it straight outputs into MS Access. Also can it be automated that it reads the list from a file (database)?
(Also can it recognize the word by letters? Because the basic word that I would load the program= List2+List3+List4)

Compiling Partially Matching Data Into Matching Rows With Macro

Jan 20, 2013

My task is to combine two large databases into one spreadsheet by extending the number of columns. The data from each database is 90% matching based on an identification number, however occasionally there are additional rows or unmatched identification numbers that need to be kept for analysis.

When this happens, there needs to be a blank row inserted to represent the missing data in the rest of the corresponding row.

I am having trouble finding a quick way to do this because I have approximately 12,000 rows (and columns up to DV when combined).

for example:

p1
data
data
data
data
p2
data
data
data
data

[Code] .....

needs to become:

p1
data
data
data
data

[Code] .....

I am guessing I will need a macro of sorts, So far I have made one column that tell me if the ID's are matching or not (1 or 0) and if they are not matching (0) I manually insert the rest of the row that is missing or make space for the duplicate data (which needs to remain).

Bank Reconciliation - Many To One Matching And Partial Cell Matching

Nov 19, 2009

programming 2 macros in a bank reconciliation sheet I am trying to create.

Basically the data consists of two sets: the ledger side and bank side. Both sides consists of multiple columns that include date, description and amount.

The following two situations can occur and which need to be covered with a macro.

Many to one matching
When we make payments to say 100 different suppliers at once, the ledger side will show 100 lines with the different amounts. However on the bank side it will only show one line with a total amount for the transaction. As the description on the ledger side is the same for all transactions done at the same time, it should be possible to have a macro add these lines and compare the total with entries on the bank side. Once a matching amount has been found, the macro should place an x next to all entries on the ledger and bank side, in order to show that these transactions have been reconciled.

Partial cell matching
In this case we are only dealing with one line on both the ledger and bank side. The issue is that the description does not always perfectly match with one another. The ledger side might say Brown Corp. and the bank side might say Brown Corporation. I want to come up with a macro that can recognize this partial match and still reconcile the lines by placing a x to both the ledger and bank entry. The match however should be done with a combination of description, date and amount as several different bookings might be done for the same supplier in the same month.

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
