# 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.

## 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

I am looking for a formula that will satisfy the following:

1) find all the values in column "A" that match
2) In column "G", sum up all the values in "F" that go with the matching values in column "A"
3) For example, in rows 14-16, the values in column "A" match. Cell G16 sums up F14:F16

## 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 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?

## Compare Columns In Worksheet And Return Row Value For Matching ID

Jul 17, 2013

I have used the merge facility to incoporate all the worksheets into one excel files. As they all have same heading, I have sorted the data, first by their account expiry time (oldest to newest) and then by manager (A-Z)

For example, system report generated on 15/03/2013, 28/03/2013, 03/04/2013, 15/05/2013, 28/05/2013 and so on and these are sheet names too. What I want is one worksheet called report with the same heading as my merged worksheets and return values where Column C in 28/03/2013 is compared to 15/03/2013 and if the employee ID matches than return the whole row of data for the report.

the next query would then be for finding employee ID in 03/04/2013 and comparing it with 28/03/2013 worksheet and returning the matched ID in report worksheet.

This is the layout of the report worksheet.

Display NameEmployee IDAccount StatusE-mailDepartmentManagerComment
15/03/2013 to 28/03/2013
28/03/2013 to 03/04/2013
03/04/2013 to 15/05/2013
15/05/2013 to 28/05/2013

so for the above report worksheet, if employee id matches the two compared worksheet (15/03/2013 to 28/03/2013) return all value (Display name, employee id, account status, email, department, manager, comment) from the 28/03/2013 and so on.

## Loop Through Rows And Return Matching Columns

Jan 9, 2009

I have a worksheet with 2 columns. The first column contains names and the second column contains numbers associated with the name.

How can I specify a name, go through the sheet to find all the occurances of that name and then paste all the numbers associated with that name in another worksheet in a set position.

## Lookup Across Columns & Return Matching Detail

Feb 26, 2008

I am trying to track a score. A master capacity sheet has two columns with identifiers (upstream and downstream nodes) relative to a pipe segment. I have a separate sheet (condition sheet) with the corresponding scores. I want to enter the upstream and downstream node numbers in 2 columns (A & B) in the master capacity sheet, and based on the the upstream and downstream node numbers, have the corresponding score (from the condition sheet) on that row copied in the master capacity sheet.

## Nested Index / Match Array - Return Value In Column C When Matching Column A And B But With Few More Criteria

Jun 7, 2014

I am trying to use a nested INDEX and MATCH array formula to return the value in column C when matching column A and column B, but with a few more criteria.

The range containing all the data

A
B
C

1
Cat 1
January 1, 2014
John

[Code] ..........

I am looking for the array formula to return the name of the person in column C who is in Cat 1 after the date in column B.

For example;
C7 should return "John" because B7 requests "January 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C8 should return "John" because B8 requests "February 15, 2014", which is after the value in B1
C9 should return "Andrew" because B9 requests "August 15, 2014", which is after the value in B4

The best try I had for the formula in C7 was

{(INDEX(\$A\$1:\$C\$4,MATCH(1,(\$B\$1:\$B\$4>=B7)*(A\$1:\$A\$4=A7),0),3))}

This brings back "John" as desired in C7, but when copying down the table into C8 and C9 both C8 and C9 return Andrew.

I guess this is due to my ">=" condition in the Match formula and it is returning "Andrew" because "Andrew" is also after the date requested, but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get it to work.

## Return A Value Of Two Matching Cell Values From Another Sheet

Jan 7, 2010

I have two sheets - one work sheet and the second - database with existing entries. Going by visual example below, I need the column C of the work sheet to automatically populate with the data pulled from the database sheet. For example, C4 on the Work sheet should find both values "Bike" and "Green" in one row on Database sheet and return the corresponding value 44444 from F97. The work sheet cells in the row C should remain empty if no match found on the database sheet.

Sheet 1 (Work sheet)
-------A--------B---------C
1---Auto-----Red
2---Auto----Green
3---Bike-----Red
4---Bike----Green
5---Bike-----Blue

Sheet 2 (Database)
-------A--------B---------F
12---Auto---Red----11111
37---Auto--Green---22222
85---Bike----Red----33333
97---Bike---Green--44444
102--Bike---Blue----55555

## Lookup Matching Values & Return Replacement

Aug 11, 2008

Im trying to work out how to write some code to find and replace from a list.

I have key data in column P on sheet 1, and a list on sheet 2 with the same key data in column C.

Basicially, every month the data on sheet 1 changes (there are usually 100 rows of data each month) and what i want to do is, write some code to look down column P on sheet 1 and for every cell, find the corrosponding value on sheet 2 (column C). When it finds the value, copy and paste it onto sheet 3 then delete the row from sheet 2.

I hve written some code that can do the first part (copy and paste) and a second macro to do the deleting....but it is only for 1 value at a time...

## Using COUNTIF To Return Matching Array Values With A CONDITION

May 9, 2014

I'm having a difficult time returning COUNTIF values for a positive match between 2 columns THAT meet a certain condition. Basically I want to iterate through column A sheet 1 (ONLY for values where column B is paid) and return a count for every instance there is a match of value A sheet 1 in column A sheet 2. In other words, I'm looking to find the number of ids marked as paid from Column A sheet 1 that exist in Column A sheet 2. I don't wish to return the actual ids, just the total count.

I've tried the following but I know there's an error in iterating through Column A the way I have it:

=COUNTIFS(Sheet1!\$ColA:\$ColA,Sheet2!\$ColA:\$ColA,Sheet1!\$ColB:\$ColB,"paid")

Sheet1:
ColA
ColB

123
paid

[Code] .....

Sheet2:
ColA
ColB

23

## 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
322323311
323333333

## 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.

## From Matching Numbers In One Column Return Value Of Second Cells In Another Cell?

May 19, 2014

I have a table with 4 columns where in column 3 I have part numbers and in column 4 I have the number sold. In column 3, the part sold can be listed several times with a different number sold in the column 3. What I need is code to go through the part numbers and return a total number sold for that part in a new column. I have sorted the table by part number, then by Column 1 which is for the date. The new total should go in the last column with the oldest date for that part.

## 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 Highest Value Of Column Headings With Matching Text In Array?

Mar 7, 2013

I have an array of data with multiple codes stored in text...

I want to set a formula in a cell to look for all instances of specific text in an array. Then compare the value of all of the column headings, which are numbered across the top of the array, which contain a match in that column and return the highest value.

Example: 10x10 array, columns 1,3, and 5 contain "text" somewhere in those columns. Formula would return 5.

## 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

Is there any forumula which will do this.,

## 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").

## 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.

## Matching Two Values In Same Column And Returning Value From One Row?

May 12, 2014

In the attached example I paste in a report from another system into Sheet2 (rough data layout in example).

In column B in Sheet1 I have tried using Match and Index formulas to try and return only the Local Shipment figures from on Sheet2 for each staff member.

The issue i'm having is that the data in Sheet2 can change based on how long the report is run. There is also no way I can change the way the raw data is set out in Sheet2 as it's an external system.

Basically i'm looking for a formula that isn't locked down to certain cells and can work with data moving up and down columns at different stages. The key data never changes from column A and F in sheet2. But what does change is whether each person has one or both of Sales & Local Shipment data in the reporting. This obviously changes based on what is completed each day.

So I need a formula that matches the persons name in column A in Sheet1 with Column A in Sheet2, then looks for the first mention of 'Local Shipment' below it and returns the cloumn F value which is in the same row as 'Local Shipment'.

## Look Across Values In 12 Columns, Return The Number Of Unique Values

Apr 17, 2009

I have 12 columns of data. In those 12 columns of data I have 3 digit numeric IDs. I want to count the unique number of IDs for each row. I have about 14K rows.

What would be the best way to do so?

Some rules about how the data is stored. I have 12 columns of data with anywhere from 1 to 12 columns having data for each respondent. Data always fills left to right and never skips columns.

I have attached an example file that represents how the data is stored and the output I would like (Unique Count).
