# Search And Match Between 2 Sheets?

Feb 27, 2014

I need sheet1 column B to match whatever is next to it in column A to the same value in sheet 2 column A and then return the value next to it in sheet 2 column b and insert it into sheet 1 column B. I have typed in 2 rows manually as example:

## How To Use Index Match To Search For Value From Multiple Sheets

Sep 3, 2012

I have a set of values in column A in sheet 1 and a compilation of some of the same set of data in column A in sheet 2. Using the index match function, I have been able to list the corresponding values in column B of sheet 2 onto column B of sheet 1 (for those values which are common to both sheets - matching occurs between column A in both sheets). However, I now have some of the set of data in sheet 2 and the rest in sheet 3 (again, in column A). Is there any way of using index match to search in both sheets and index the corresponding value from column B of the sheet containing the matched value in column B of sheet 1?

I have tried this by nesting the index match functions for each sheet into two separate IF arguments but haven't had any luck. Is there a better way of doing this?

This is what I have currently tried in Cell B2 of sheet 1:

=IF(INDEX(Sheet2!\$B\$2:\$B\$3001,MATCH(A2,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$A\$3001,FALSE),1),IF(INDEX(Sheet3!\$B\$2:\$B\$3001,MATCH(A2,Sheet3!\$A\$2:\$ A\$3001,FALSE),1)))

Excel keeps saying this formula has errors but I have no idea as to what changes I need to make to get the formula to model my situation. Then again, I'm not even sure if this is the approach I should be taking to create a formula that models my situation.

## Search Sheets For Data Match, Paste Results

May 13, 2009

I have a worksheet named "List" with static values in columns A & B. I want to search all the other worksheets in the same workbook for the one that matches the value I entered in column B on the "List" sheet. The cell on the other worksheets with the possible match is B5. When it finds a match, I want it to take the data from cell B3 on that worksheet and paste it in Column C of the "List" sheet on the corresponding row (all rows in the "List" sheet have a different value in Column B).

In other words, when "List"b7 = worksheetb5 , then worksheetb3 is pasted to Listc7.

## Search Variable Number Of Sheets To Find Partial Match On Name

Jun 19, 2014

I have a monthly report. Worksheets for each month, each row is a type of fruit (column A), and the number sold (column B). A new worksheet is added each month with the information. I also have a Summary worksheet - running total of all months: Type of Fruit (column A), Number sold (column B), and Total of all fruits - number sold. I would like a formula for the Summary worksheet - to match that fruit (column A) to any of the other worksheets - matching the fruit (column A), and bring back the number sold (column B). (note some apples are Fuji and some are Honey crisp - those would be totaled together)

ex:
Tab = Jan 14
Fuji apples3
Bananas2
grapes9
TOTAL14

## Search A Sheet For A Match And Then Copy All The Cells To The Right Of The Match

Jul 13, 2009

I need a macro that can search a sheet for a match and then copy all 7 cells to the right of the match. I have attached an example of the sheet that will serve as the database to search, and a userform example that will be similar to the userfrom that will display the copied cells when a match is found. I plan to copy and paste the 7 cells to a different sheet so that the userform can display the results with the control source property. I do not need a way to add to this database. I know very little about searching a database so.

## Search Function (locate Data) Search All Sheets Within The Workbook

Sep 14, 2009

Using the search macro code below, could someone please help to add in more codes what I'm currently using, and also where to insert it. The Search function works well for what I need and it helps me to locate data. When using the search function somehow it search all sheets within the workbook but I only want it to search an array of sheets when using this macro that is needed to complete the task for what I'm after.

Macro
Public Sub FindText()
'Run from standard module, like: Module1.

Dim ws As Worksheet, Found As Range, rngNm As String
Dim myText As String, FirstAddress As String, thisLoc As String
Dim AddressStr As String, foundNum As Integer

myText = InputBox("Enter the text that you want to search for:", "Start Search!")

If myText = "" Then Exit Sub...................

## Search And Match Data Using Two Worksheets

Apr 2, 2014

I'm trying to search & match data from two different spreadsheets. I will attach my workbook for reference.

The first worksheet is a list of all of my clients I have previously worked with and the second worksheet is a list using a set criteria. The criteria I am using is the UK postal code "AL10".

The clients address (Column B) will be used as a reference to match the address which is located on the AL10 worksheet which is also column B. If there is a direct match then a VLookup function will be performed to display something that can be easily referenced.

The problem I am having is that the address format is different on the clients worksheet then what it is on the AL10 worksheet. I have the feeling I will need to create a search function with multiple arrays but I have limited knowledge of how to do that.

There are some additional notes located in my workbook.

I know that two of the client addresses should match data located on the on AL10 worksheet and the other two shouldn't give a match at all as they don't exist. These are highlighted in yellow.

I have used the Find and replace function to do this but this is rather manual and slow and I would like the search feature to automate this process.

## Conditional Formatting - Match And Search

Mar 21, 2014

Attached is the example : Example.xlsx

Basically, would like to have the following conditional formatting:

There is a fruit listed and the are person 1 and person 2. If the fruit under Person 1 or Person 2 matches the fruit under Fruit, the cell under either person 1 or person 2 highlights green; if it does not match, it highlights red. If the fruit has not been listed under fruit, such as in cell A3, cells B3 and C3 are not highlighted.

## Search And Match Several Values Which Are In Different Order

Oct 14, 2009

Lets say these are the values in sheet 1, ROW 1:
B1: David
C1: 44673
D1:Mike
E1:88473
F1: Mika
G1 77463
H1:
I1:
J1:

And these are the Lets say these are the values in sheet 2 ROW 155:
B1: 77463
C1: 44673
D1:Mike
E1:
F1:
G1:
H1:88473
I1: David
J1 44673

As you can see, there are the same 9 values in both rows in both sheets ( (no value is important as well).
However, they are not located in the same row number (1 and 155) and the order in which they are written is different.

What I would like to do is to search all the rows in sheet 2,(columns B-J only) and if there is a match for all values in a specific row to a row in sheet 1 (again, order is not important), than the Value in column A from the specific row in sheet 1 will be copied to Column A in sheet 2 for that maching row.

## Search List A Highlight Non Match

Oct 31, 2009

Within conditional formatting I use =COUNTIF(Task,I4)=0 and it highlights the non-matches. Task is a named range which works fine, but how could I actually just use a string instead of the named range? The named range only consists of Major and Sub. My first guess would be =COUNTIF({"Major";"Sub"},I4)=0 but this is not working.

## Exclude Cells That Exactly Match In Search

Mar 8, 2012

Say I have the following:
Cell A1: male
Cell A2: male
Cell A3: female
Cell A4: male

I want to conduct a search using the value in cell B1, and return the row numbers for which the value in B1 exists.

So my formula in C1 is:
=small(if(isnumber(search(\$B\$1, \$A\$1:\$A\$A4)), row(\$A\$1:\$A\$A4)), row(1:1))

and I make it an array by CTRL+SHIFT+enter

So in B1 I type "male" (without the quotes). From C1 to C4 the values populate as 1,2,3,4

However, I only want the rows where "male" exists, in other words, i want an exact match and I want to exclude those cells that have "female"

I'm wanting:
C1 = 1
C2 = 2
C3 = 4
C4 = blank

Is there a way to do this?

## Search String Of Numbers Until Match

Feb 5, 2007

how do i count through a string of numbers until a specified number is found?

## Search And 'close' Match Procedure

Aug 10, 2007

Two Excel files open. Text in column A for each, not necessarily matching perfectly between files. Data in column B in one file needs to be copied and pasted into the second file, once a match is found, Need a search and 'close' match procedure.

Once done, we can invoke a dialogue box that asks the user, "is this the match you're looking for". If yes, copy and paste the data from column B from the first file to the second file. If no, go back and look for the next 'close match', looping through the second file column A. If not found, do manually. Only problem is to find the 'close match'. Example:

Text in file #1 is "The black dog jumped over the fence"
Text in file #2 is "The dog jumped over the fence"
If this is a good enough match for the data in Column B to be used, we want this to be identified, giving the user an opportunity to accept or reject.

## Search For Exact Match Column Header?

Mar 13, 2014

This is the script I have now:

[Code] ......

It works, unless there is a column before the "Categories" column that has the word "Categories" somewhere in its text. So basically if there is a column that has "Unit Categories" it finds that column when I really want it to find a column that has exactly "Categories" as the text and nothing else (but I don't want it to be case sensitive).

How do I force an exact match using this script?

## Index/Match Cross Search And Extract

Dec 2, 2009

sheet 2
column C is list of chemicals (to give context)
column A is a list of the publication numbers they apear in
column B is GOING to be the list of publication titles they are in

sheet 3
column A is a complete list of every publication number in our library
column B is the corresponding publication title

what i would like to do is extract the title from sheet 3 and input it into column B sheet 2 corresponding to whatever pub number is listed in column A of sheet 2

the code i have so far is in column b sheet 2 "=INDEX(Sheet3!B:B,MATCH(A2,Sheet3!A:A,0))"

now the problem i have is this works perfectly when only one pub is listed in a cell in column A sheet 2 but when there is more than one pub listed (ie "pub number" next line in cell "another pub number") it gives a N/A result.

is there anyway to call up multiple pub titles from the multiple pub numbers within one cell

## Index / Match Search In 3 Separate Workbook

Sep 29, 2011

I have been working on this 2 weeks and have finally come to the conclusion. I am trying to use index/match to find an article number in any 1 of 3 attribute files workbooks. I have been am using Vlookup, but the Master attribute file workbooks DO NOT list the article number in column A (but list them in F) and therefore I have been creating an altered copy every month to place the article numbers in column A so VLOOKUP would work. Index/Match would be a more efficient look up formula as I could link directly to the Master Attribute files without altering the workbooks.

Below is the formula I have been using that looks in 2 attribute files workbooks

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[TireAttributes.xlsx]TireAttributes'!A:C,2,FALSE)),
IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[PartAttributes.xls]PartAttributes'!A:D,2,FALSE)),"",
(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[PartAttributes.xls]PartAttributes'!A:D,2,FALSE))),
(VLOOKUP(A8,'C:Recon Workbook FilesService FilesAttributeFiles[TireAttributes.xlsx]TireAttributes'!A:C,2,FALSE)))

Below are the three (the new formula would incorporate a 3rd attributes workbook "Other" to the search criteria) Index/Match formulas I would like to "Tie" together to find the article number in any of the 3 attribute files workbooks and return column A if the article number is present or nothing if the article number is not present in any of the 3.

=INDEX('C:JDAAttributeFiles[OtherAttributes.xls]OtherAttributes'!A:A,MATCH(A8,
'C:JDAAttributeFiles[OtherAttributes.xls]OtherAttributes'!F:F,0))
=INDEX('C:JDAAttributeFiles[PartAttributes.xls]PartAttributes

## Index Match Or Array Search Function

Jul 30, 2014

Here is the table I am working with

Date
Open
High
Low
Close
Volume
Semi-Annual Yield
Theoretical Bond Price
Index
Coupon
Total Value
Peaks
Troughs

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

The Relevant columns would be "Date" column A cell 1, "Total Value" column L cell 1, "Peaks" column M cell 1, and "Troughs" column N cell 1. What I basically want to do, in the next column, column O, is this: If cell N# = "Trough" find the previous M cell = "Peak" and take the L cell in that "Peak" row and subtract the L cell in the Trough row from it (like =(L4-L9)/L4)). Then in column P, if the percentage drop was 5% or greater, I want to find the days between the trough we are looking at, in cell n10, and the NEXT Peak, cell M11, using the corresponding dates in Column A.

## Search The First Name And Match Both The First And Second Names To The Main List

Mar 5, 2008

I have document1, which is a main list of surnames names, which then show 'hours', 'employment number', and 'post', in the following columns.

In document2, I have a sheet with a selection of these names, and blank cells for the named columns above.

What i need to do is have excel search and match the name from document2, to the name in document 1, and fill in the above columns with the correct data.

is that some of the surnames will show up more than once in my main list - so if possible i would like excel to then search the first name (which is in the preceding column) and match both the first and second names to the main list - OR - to simply return an error so that i can spot, and input the data manually.

## Fornula To Search For An Exact Match Within A Cell

Jul 17, 2006

I need to search for an exact match within a cell & i am unsure of how to go abt it. Eg ) Cell A1 contains "Emea West,Emea East,Emea". I want to search for the term "Emea" in the contents of the Cell A1. I cant use Find() as using "=FIND("Emea",A6)" returns 1 ... But i want an exact match i.e "Emea" only which in this case should be 21. The Exact() works well if Cell A1 had a single value ...I guess I would need to use some array function here which will parse through contents of the cell , but am not sure on how to go about

## Macro: Search Down Column & Match Then Offset

Nov 19, 2006

I have created some code to look in a cell to see if the name matches that which has been input in a drop down list on a combo box on an input form and then copy the value of column 10 in the same row. I created a public variable for that name as txtTenant.

What I wanted to do was to then write the code that if the first cell did not match the name selected (txtTenant) that it would then drop down one cell and compare it and keep going down until it finds a match, right down to the end of the column of data if necessary.

My coding is not working - it stays at the first person it finds in the first cell. I am not sure if I should be using For...next loops or loop.....

This is the
Sub FillData()

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

RentRow = 2 'sets the first row as row 2 in the data sheet to copy from
NewRentRow = 7 'seta the row to copy to in txtTenant

## Search Text Cell For Wildcard Match

Feb 27, 2007

I am looking for a way, to search a cell that has a no more than 4 words sperated by a space, and if a match display it.

and i need to search the cells with in LocationList (about 4000 cells) for a match... is this possbile ?

## Search For Substring Within String Of Text Which Is Exact Match?

Jan 6, 2014

Let us say I have the following text in Cell A1. "There is a fault in the cal cycle.Need to update the records." And in cell A2 I have the following text. "Called for backup assistance. There is an issue with numbers." I cells B1 & B2 I need a particular formula which searches for the substring "cal" exactly and returns true if present. In cell A1, we have "cal" in the text. So it should return true for me in cell B1.

However in cell B2 I need false to be returned even though I have "Called" inside the text. I need true to be shown only for those cells where we have the exact text "cal" and no text characters in front or back of it.

## Code For A Textbox To Search A Range Of Cells For A Match

Aug 10, 2014

I created a user form that has two textboxes on it. One is to enter a person's name that gets put into column A, starting at row 4, and the other is to enter a number into column B, starting at row 4.

What I would like to do is for the form to search the names that have been entered in column A for duplicates in the same range. If the name is not there already, then I would like it to operate as normal. If it already exists, then I would like the number in the text box to go into column C in the same row as the name.

Here is the code I have already on the Submit button:

Private Sub SubmitButton_click()

Dim emptyRow As Long
Sheet1.Activate
emptyRow = WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("A:A")) + 4
Cells(emptyRow, 1).Value = Guestname.Value
Cells(emptyRow, 2).Value = Roomnum.Value
End Sub

Is this possible? I have to make it more complicated, but once I get the basics, I might be able to figure it out myself.

## Text Search :: Find A Match When Date Entered

Jan 29, 2006

Here is what I have:

Column J is the date opened. Column T is the date closed. Of course,
column T will have no date if still open.
Column K and O may or may not have text.
Column AF6 has a date, mm/dd/yyyy, that is entered/changed depending on the search.

What I need is a formula in AF8 that will look at the date entered in AF6 and find a match in columns J and T. Then it will look to see if there is text in K and O. If so, populate AF8 with that text.

## How To Automate Search And Match Function Between Two Separate Workbooks Using VBA

Nov 16, 2011

I'm trying to automate a search and match function between two separate workbooks using VBA and am having some problems. I'm using the following line:

search_results = Application.Match(temp, Range("E1:E900"), 0)

which works fine. now the problem is that when i'm searching for lets say "ABCD" in one of the workbooks, if there is an entry "ABCD " (with a space at the end) it says that the entry doesn't exist. is there any way of correcting it such that it would always neglect the space at the end if it exists? i tried using -1 instead of 0 and it messes up, so i'm not sure what to do.
