# 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.

## Align Matching Values In Columns A And B And Bring Corresponding Values With Column B

May 15, 2014

I would like to align the matching values in columns A and B but I want the values that correspond to b in c,d and e to go with the column b value.

C D and E don't necessarily have a value in there but if it does it needs to move with B

## 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 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?

## 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.

## Compare Two Columns And Show Only Non Matching Values?

Jun 1, 2014

I would like to compare two different columns and show only non matching values that exist in Column B but not in Column A in the next cell.

If we assume that my data is:

Column A: Column B:

A Z
B E
C B
D K
E A

So, I would like to show these values in the next cell as follows:

Column A: Column B: Column C:A Z Z
B E K
C B
D K
E A

## Compare Two Columns And Show Only Non Matching Values

Dec 25, 2008

Basically I have Two Columns.

Column A: Column B:

GN0001 DB0002
DB0002 DP0012
GE0025 GN0001
GR0026 GE0025
DR1235 GR0026
DP0012 DR1235
GS0025
PC128

Column A is the master codes list for a unique product.

Now every time a product is sold, its unique code number is entered into column B.

What I want excel to do is compare Column A and Column B and show me only the codes that DO NOT match.

This way I know which items should be present in store when I do a physical stock check.

So the end result should be:

Column A: Column B: Column C:

GN0001 DB0002 GS0025
DB0002 DP0012 PC128
GE0025 GN0001
GR0026 GE0025
DR1235 GR0026
DP0012 DR1235
GS0025
PC128

## 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.

## Retrieving Values Based On Matching Values On Separate Worksheets

Feb 17, 2010

Is it possible to have a formula where it will retrieve a specific value on one sheet based on matching values? Unfortunately, hlookup wont work as there are several values in the table where the 'lookup_value' is the same.

Example:

On sheet 1 (titled BSRC), I have a table which has a list of values in column 1. On column two I have the 'lookup value' which needs to be matched and all values underneath it to be retrieved from sheet 2 (titled CSRD). The 'lookup_value' range is on row 9 of sheet 2.

I have attached a sample spreadsheet for clarification.

## 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 Array Values To Other Values In A Certain Range

Aug 3, 2006

i have a very large spreadsheet filled with telephone numberS and some other codes that go with them...i need to match the codes with the phone numbers.

Sub TRCO()
Dim TNs As Long
Dim i As Long
Dim TempArray() As String
Dim TRCO As String
Dim CD03 As String
Dim ASOC As Range
TRCO = "TRCO"
CD03 = "CD034DF1"
'Filter TN's
Columns("B:B").EntireColumn.Insert
Set tempRange = Range("A6", Range("A65000").End(xlUp))
With tempRange

## 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 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.
