# Matching One Cell To Multiple Columns?

Dec 27, 2012

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
I have tried Iferror
I have tried isna

## 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 And Sorting Multiple Columns

Mar 11, 2014

I need sorting a contact list of 3000 + so the emails match with the company name, and first and last name of the contacts

Column A is Email and Matches column C & D. Column B matches with Column E. I need A to match with B-E.

I've attached an example : Example Spreadsheet.xls

I tried using VLOOKUP but I can't figure out how to get it to return what I want in the format I want it.

## Counting Matching Occurrences From Multiple Columns

Feb 1, 2007

I have a sheet with data which is all sorted by columns.

What I want to be able to count the occurrence of an instance when 2 cells in the same row (but in different columns) match my given criteria.

Ive been using 'countif' to count the instances in a single column and I am now aware that this is about all it can be used for.

An example of my data is:

A B
1 a
1 a
1 c
2 d
2 c
3 b
3 b
3 c
3 d

What I want to be able to count for example is how many times '3' & 'b' occur on the same row (in this case the answer would be 2).

Im not very good with pivot tables and have tried but have not managed to find an answer. I really hope that someone can help as Ive been working on this probelm for days and quite frankly its doing my head in :-)

## Finding Matching Data From Multiple Columns In 2 Different Excel Files?

Sep 27, 2013

I need to find if there are matching addresses in 2 different excel files. If the same address appears in both files, I would like the new worksheet to return the address along with the sale price from the 1 file and the rental amount from the other file.

I have tried using vlookup but the problem is the exported data file contains the street number in one column and the street name on another column. I have attached a truncated example of both the rental data and the residential sales data.

## Matching Columns To Update Cell

Jul 18, 2013

I want to update a cell when 1 column matches another column.

this is my data

AB CD EF
IDtemp1 temp2ID2 NetinvNetWrit
1\$0.00 \$19,745.933\$1,907.60\$29,495.27

3\$1,907.60 \$29,495.271\$0.00\$19,745.93
4 6\$0.00\$31,233.28

I want column B and C to populate with E and F if ID = ID2 or column A = Column D

## Matching Multiple Criteria On Row Then Showing Cell On That Row?

Feb 3, 2013

I've got an array of data about 30x1500 cells in size, I want to use this data in a table I'm making on another worksheet.

Normally I'd just use VLOOKUP and this works great in most cases but I want to do something a little bit more complicated. Basically I want to (in normal English) have excel look at the table, find a cell that matches criteria in this data array, then compare to another cell on the same row in this array. If the criteria for these two match then display the data from another cell on the same row. The criteria for matching the first cells would be an exact value, both being strings of text.

I've tried using a couple of nested VLOOKUP and IF statements but failed .....

## Matching Cell Formats Based On Matching Cell Values

Jan 28, 2010

I have a cell (A1) that contains text.
That text will match a single value in a reference list (i.e. range of cells e.g. Z1:Z26).
When the match occurs (e.g. A1 = Z16), I want the format of the reference cell (fill color, text color) to apply to the cell of interest (A1).
The reference cells are manually formatted.

I know that I could create a long list of conditional format formulas instead of using the reference, but it seems that there must be some way to tell excel: if the cell value contents are equivalent, the formatting should be as well.

## 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.

## Splitting Multiple Entries In Single Cell Into Multiple Columns

Jan 15, 2013

I am looking to split multiple different entries in a single cell into multiple columns and repeat this for all rows

Example (I have the below in a single Cell as column headers)
NCM Server Mgmt VLAN Site ID

Next Line down is the data (Each row in a single cell)
Enabled 10.10.10.0 50 TEST SITE 1
Enabled 10.10.20.0 50 TEST SITE 2
Disabled 10.10.30.0 50 TEST SITE 3

How I could achieve this as I have a number of projects where this would become useful

I know you can use delimiters but with spaces between the values I just can't fathom a way forward.

## 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 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 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
231221323221
311322231

## 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.

For Example: Sheet1 Company Name= Opera Technologies

Sheet2 Company Name= Opera

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.
