Compare 2 Columns & Copy Common Cell Rows

Jan 21, 2010

this is in reference to a question I asked some time ago in which I was given the following: =IF( COUNTIF(SHEET1!$A$1:$A$1200,SHEET2!A1),SHEET2!A1,"")

To summize as this is not quite working, I have two worksheets and in Column A are id#s. Worksheet 1 has100's more rows of data than Worksheet 2. I need to find the unique ids from column A in Worksheet 1 that match Unique IDs in worksheet 2.

I need to copy the row of cells from worksheet 1 where the unique id equals that u.id in worksheet 2. That row needs to be copied to Sheet 2 that has the same unique id, and after the pre-existing cells which are already present.

So for instance: if Sheet1 A100 = Sheet2 A24, then copy row A100from Sheet 1 and paste it to Row A24 of SHeet 2 start with the first empty cell- just say Sheet2 G24 as an example.

Using the formula I was given before, it finds matches, but the pasted rows are off. If the match occurs with Sheet 1 A450 and Sheet 2 A36, it will copy the value from ROW/SHeet 1 A36 instead of ROW/Sheet 1 A450

Compare 2 Columns To Another Sheet & Highlight Matches

Dec 23, 2007

I have a workbook with two sheets imported from different sources. Sheet 1 is an AdHoc query from an Oracle 10g based program. Sheet 2 (PBIC 8 in my file) is a report generated from a property accountability program. The information from Sheet 2 is manually inputted into the Oracle program that generated Sheet 1.

I would like to have a macro that would compare the cell contents in columns "RegistrationNbr" (column S) and "SerialNbr" (column T) with the cell contents in Sheet 2 (PBIC 8). The match in Sheet 2 could be an identical match or part of a longer string. The matching cells in both sheets should be highlighted.

One thing to be considered is the column names in Sheet 1 will always be the same but the column letter designation may change base on the fields selected in the AdHoc query.

I didn't realize my file was too large and didn't upload.

How To Compare The Data And Highlight

Jun 13, 2014

Please refer to attached sheet. i have 2 sets of data. I need to compare the data and highlight.

First compare each cell in column W with each cell column L.

If match is found then compare the corresponding cell in column U with the value in column N.

Example:

W1 matches with L1 and U1 matches with N1 so do not highlight.

W2 matches with L7 and U2 does not match with N7 and hence highlight.

If value is different then highlight the cell in column U.

Compare Data In Two Workbooks And Highlight Matches

Jan 28, 2008

Here is the scenario. I am running a business and each day I download my orders for the day. The information includes customer names and addresses. The customer name is for example in column E. We will call this "Book1".

I have a second workbook that I use to store bad customer information. i.e. customers that I do not wish to sell to. The information stored here is customer name and address e.g. column A - customer name, column B - 1st line of address etc. This will be "Book2".

I wish to programmatically be able to compare customer names in column E Book1 to the customer names stored in column A Book2. Any matches found should highlight the rows (i.e. orders) in Book1.

I have tried to make this clear as possible. I want to be able to do this as a macro hence programmatically so when I click a button this comparison/highlighting takes place.

Formula To Compare Data On 2 Workbooks And Highlight Changes On Third Worksheet

Dec 11, 2013

I have a spreadsheet with two worksheets (sheet 1 and 2). Sheet 1 has all the current employee data on it e.g. employee number, Forename, Surname, Address, Pay rate, etc. Sheet 2 was last month's employee data in the same format. I want to compare the two worksheets on worksheet 3 and highlight any changes or just put the changes on worksheet 3 (this would be better).

The problem is employees might be on different rows on each worksheet and some employees might not be on one spreadsheet due to staff leaving and starting.

Each staff member has a unique employee number to identify them. So I need a formula that matches the employee number and then looks in the cells in sheet 1 and 2 and if different puts the value in sheet 1 into the cell in sheet 3.

Compare Two Columns Side By Side To Highlight/change Color Of Difference

Nov 7, 2008

Is it possible to compare two columns side by side to highlight/change color of difference between the two cells

I need to compare and show the changes to the record from previous version and generate a report which will highlight the changes (Rather than just saying that record has changed It should tell what has changed)

For example if the

Column 1 (Previous Version) :The structure contains Wire, Bolt, Stmaps etc

Column 2 (Current Version) : The structure contains Wire, Bolt, Stamps etc

Data Changed: YES

In report is should show two columns side by side and in Column 2 it should highlight "Stamps"

Enter And Highlight Data In Columns Based On Other Columns

Jul 10, 2009

I have a worksheet with 20+ columns. For this macro, I only need to focus on 4 of them. However, none of these columns are ever in a fixed position so the macro would need to find them by name and NOT by column position. Here they are...

1. Vacation Type (will only have a text value of either "Cold" or "Warm")

2. Vacation Started (will always have a date *x/xx/xxxx)

3. Vacation Ended (sometimes it will have a date '*x/xx/xxxx' and sometimes it will NOT have a date and will be truly blank)

4. Number of Days (currently has ALL truly blank cells)

THIS WHOLE MACRO SHOULD NOT BE CASE SENSITIVE ANYWHERE

Here's what I would like the macro to do...

Scenario 1 - for "Cold" values Find "Cold" text values in the "Vacation Type" column

"Cold" values WITH a date in the "Vacation Ended" columnIF there IS a date in the "Vacation Ended" column in the same row, put the number of days difference between the "Vacation Started" column and "Vacation Ended" column in the "Number of Days" column.

The amount of days in the "Number of Days" column will determine whether these cells should be highlighted GREY or RED.

Scenario 1-AIF the number of days difference is 7 days or less, highlight the cells in the "Vacation Ended" column and "Number of Days" column RED.

ORů
Scenario 1-BIF the number of days difference is MORE than 7 days, highlight the cells in the "Vacation Ended" column and "Number of Days" column GREY..................................

Compare The Data Between The Two Columns

Dec 29, 2009

I'm working with Excel 2007, I have two tabs on my spreadsheet, each tab contains a column of numbers formatted like 5552220. Is there a way to run a macro or write a formula that would compare the data between the two columns and either automatically delete the numbers that don't have a match or highlight them? For example:

Tab A Tab B
5551112 5551112
6660001 6660001
1234567 1234567
2222222 2222222
6666445

6666445 needs to be deleted in tab B because it's not present in tab A. There could be up to 100 numbers that require deletion from tab B.

Compare Data In Columns

Oct 10, 2006

I have 2 columns say A and B (infinite number of rows)
A is an Indexed number starting at 1
B is numerical data.

I now have a second set of the same columns with the same data, however some rows are missing. I need a way of comparing the data and then display the rows I am missing in the second set of columns.

For example the first set will be the master list and look like:
Index Data
1 34
2 46
3 54
4 276
5 311
6 89

Second list has row 2 and row 5 missing.

Index Data
1 34
3 54
4 276
6 89

The desired result is to have the missing rows displayed;

Index Data

2 46
5 311

Compare 2 Sets Of Data Each With 2 Columns?

Nov 10, 2013

I have 2 sets of data/array/range. Each set consists of 2 columns with a large number of rows.

I want to compare my 2nd data to a master data. And list if anything is different in 2nd set of data from master set in column A than highlight the difference or copy the value to another place.

Also want to compare the 2nd column if column A was same and consider both column A and column B for that associated row different if column B is different.

The trouble for me comes in because the list is never alphabetical (sort doesnt work cause of funky naming) and never of the same size.

Attached is a photo of an example for maybe an clearer understanding. Also attached an example excel sheet I tried it within excel but cant seem to figure out how to look also for the 2nd column, so im trying to avoid the within excel route and go using vba ...

T3OCcxw.jpg
example.xlsx

I attempted it with a very basic code thats not working =/ just cant seem to figure how to code to get the desired result

VB:
Sub matchdiff()
Dim cell As Range
Dim found As Range

Using VLookup To Compare 2 Columns Of Data

Oct 26, 2012

I'm having difficulties using vlookup to compare two columns of TEXT data. My goal is find out how many of items in the "Eligible Serial Numbers" list have been ordered for destruction. The items listed for destruction are listed in the "Serial Numbers (destroyed).

Whenever I put in a VLOOKUP, I get a serial number that doesn't make sense to me. For example, if I want to find out if "362351581" from the Eligible List appears on the destroyed list. What do you suggest?

Code:

Destroyed? (i.e. Vlookup formula in this column)
Eligible Serial Numbers
Serial Numbers (destroyed)
362351581
362351581

Excel 2013 :: Highlight Cells If Data In 2 Columns Match

May 27, 2014

Please see the attached example. I'm trying to highlight cells only if 2 values in the row match 2 values in another row. If a book title/author combination matches that of another title/author combination in a different row, it would highlight. Some alternate rows will contain different titles by the same author, and some rows will have like titles by different authors...but they should not highlight.

The only situation where highlighting would occur is if the title/author pairing appears in another row.

I'm trying to decide if this would be a conditional formatting/highlighting rule, or if it would be a macro/vbs?

I'm using Excel 2013.

VBA Compare Two Columns And Copy Matching Data

Feb 18, 2014

I'm using the code below to compare columns on two sheets (1 column for each) and where there is a match, copy data from the 'Source' to 'Destination' sheet.

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

The code works fine, but I'd like to amend this, but I'm a little unsure about how to proceed.

The script currently compares column C on the 'Source' sheet with column D on the 'Destination' sheet and where a match is found copy column G from the 'Source' sheet and pastes this to column O on the 'Destination' sheet.

I'd still like to copy and paste the same columns, but I'd like to compare two columns from each sheet, so from the 'Source' sheet compare columns C and E to columns D and J on the 'Destination' sheet.

Compare Data In 2 Columns With Values That Have Exceeded 1,048,576 Count

Jul 22, 2012

I have an Excel macro which works well in comparing two columns A and B. It populates column C with unique values in A and not in B, populates column D with unique values in column B and not in A and puts the values found in both A and B in the fifth column (E).

Data in the columns A and B of Sheet 1 has exceeded 1,048,576 (the maximum allowable in Excel 2007) and i will copy the overflow data in Sheet 2's column A and B and i will like the comparison to continue in the next worksheet.

I need the macro to treat the second worksheet as a continuation of the first sheet and not as a separate data. (The values i am comparing have exceeded 1million).

Sub twocols()
Dim d As Object, na&, nb&, a, b
Dim e, p&, q&, r&, m
Set d = CreateObject("scripting.dictionary")

Compare 2 Different Columns Of Data - Find Unique Results

Mar 2, 2007

I would like to compare some keyword lists if possible.

I have a large list of Unique keywords in Col A (From A3),

This Column is called Keyword List A - Large"

I then have a keyword list in Column C (From Cell C3),,

This Column is called "Keyword List B - Small.

I then have a column called "Unique Keywords Found",, This is Col E,, with hopefully returned results being entered from cell E3 downwards.

What I would like to be able to do if possible is run a Macro that would compare all the unique words in ColA and C and return only the difference, (The Unique words not found in ColC as Col A is the "Master List")

If possible could a pop up box appear saying
===================
List A No Rows:xyz
List B No Rows: xyz
No of Uniques Found : xyz
Time Elapsed (sec): xyz
===================

I'm running windows XP and Excel 2007.

Compare, Add, And Highlight

Jun 23, 2008

How would you add rows with the same name and then if they are equal in added amount, to highlight them in red?

example:

a b c

xyz x 50 (highlight in red)
zzyy x 50
zzyy z 50
zzyy x 50
xyz z 50 (highlight in red)

zzyy is x = 100 and z = 50 so it would not be highlighted in red.

but xyz is x =50 and z =50 so it is highlighted.
