Comparing One Column Against Others

Dec 13, 2008

i am having with an excel formula.

I have a column of letters a,b,c going down in one column (A1:A30)
In B1:30,C1:C30,D1:D30 etc (up to AZ1:AZ30) I have a random selection of a,b,c's
I need to compare all other columns against column A, and have excel tell me when any one of the columns does not match EXACTLY the order of the a,b,c's in column 1. So for instance cell AC:1 does not match cell A:1, AC:2 doesnt match A:2 etc all the way to AC:30. In other words, all the cells contain a,b,c's but in a different order to A1 and thats when I want excel to flag that coloumn up in the 31st cell in the corresponding column. I hope that makes sense. I have been looking for days and now my brain is fried.

Comparing The Column

Oct 16, 2008

I just can't get this to work. I am sure it will be easy for you all...
Here is the scenario...

Column A : has usernames of people that have paid.
Column B : has ALL usernames of people.

How can I find the usernames that have not paid? Is there a formula that can do this? Somehow compare the two columns to weed out the usernames of the people that have not paid.

Comparing Values And Returning Different Column

May 31, 2007

I want to return the proper value from sheet 2 into column C in sheet one. I have the current formula set up as an array but I only get the value that matches the first row in Sheet 2.

Retrieve Value By Comparing Column Data

Nov 6, 2009

I need a macro to do the following:

I need Invoice # from column A to put in Column I by comparing Name in G and H with Name in D and E.

For Example
Compare Alfred Whitworth (Column G & H) in Column D & F would give Inv # 88530 ...this value will go in column I.

Compare Angela Owens and could not find in Column D and E so leave Column I Blank.

Compare Annabelle Deen would have Inv # 88740

And so on...

Macro - Comparing Values In One Column

Nov 13, 2009

I'll try my best to explain what I'm trying to do here using Excel macro (i've very limited knoledge in VBA ). I am working on a project where I'm using an actuator to measure micro-switches. The values are then extracted using HyperTerminal via RS232 and transferred to Excel to filter the values and display only the ones that are important.

Here is what I'd like to do via a Macro:

Compare cells in column A (e.g A1 and A2, A2 and A3, A3 and A4 etc.)

Example:

A
0
300
550
1200
1700
1900
2200
2000
1850

[Code]....

So first, if the values increase, do nothing and keep comparing other values. If we find the values decrease, display the larger value between the two, in this case it's the value 2200 that we want to display.

Next, the values will be decreasing progressively. We'll do the comparison between 2 values but this time if the values decrease, do nothing until we find a value increases. Display then the smaller value between the 2, here it's 1500.!

Comparing And Sorting Multiple Column Groups?

Feb 28, 2014

I'm am trying to take multiple column-groups and sort them by product ID number.

I am trying to put together a sales record for the past 26 months for around 2000 different items and sorting them manually would obviously be a nightmare.

I would like to sort them so that all the drugs with the same NDC (prod ID) have the correct data for each month displayed on the correct row for that NDC. Right now I have each set of data for that month sorted by product ID number but some months we used certain products and others we did not. Is there any sort of Macro that I could use? What I am trying to do I attached two files. The "before" and my desired "after".

Comparing Text Values In Two Cells And Adding 1 To Result Column

Apr 14, 2013

I have an excel file with some data in it. I have two columns with one of four words in it. For simplicity I'll call them RED, GREEN, BLUE, and Yellow. A few columns over I have columns "Same" "Good" and "Bad". I'm trying to figure out a way to get excel to put a 1 in the appropriate column, if cell A1 is Red I need excel to look at the word in cell B2 and put a 1 in the "same" column if A1 and B1 are the same word. If the word in B2 is Yellow I need excel to put a 1 in the "Good" column. If the word in B1 is GREEN or BLUE I need it to put a 1 in the bad column. The tricky part is each of the four words RED, GREEN, BLUE, and Yellow have a different set of words that will be called "good" or "bad". So if the word in cell A1 if Green for example it will have a different set of good and bad color words.

So it seems I need four different functions depending on what word is in A1. In the column next to these lists of words I have the date which I'll need to use to give me the sums of same, good, and bad for each day. But first things first. I think I need to use a combination of IF functions and MATCH function, but I can't figure out anything that works. Below is what I'm hoping it will look like when I've got the right formulas.

First column
Second column
Date
Same
Good

Comparing Two Column For Matching Number But The Items Compared Also Contains Letters

May 2, 2006

I am trying to compare two colums. They both contain numbers mixed with letters. I am wanting to match only the numbers in both not the letters. Example:

column a = m454 column b = fsh454-1
m543 fst998-2
m998 fsm434-1

my match is m454 and fsh454-1, m998 and fst998-2. The items can be in any order in the column. The end result I want to indicate the match by putting an X by column a item that matches column b.

Comparing Values In One Column And Inserting Multiple Blank Rows

Oct 13, 2006

I am working on formatting a spreadsheet report where the values will change in column A. Here is what I would like to do via a Macro. Compare the cells in column A (e.g., compare A2 to A3, compare A3 to A4, and so on). If the values between the two cells in column A are different, insert three blank rows and set the active cell to the next cell following the blank lines. Example:

if cell A5 is different from A6, insert three blank rows below row 5 and new active cell is now A9 and the comparison would start again. I have been trying to code the macro for this but with no success. Here is the macro I have been working on.

Sub Macro1()
Const NumRow As Integer = 3
Dim StartCell As Range
Dim RowNR, NewCnt As Long
Dim RowCount As Long
Dim Count As Long
Dim intRow As Integer
Dim bFmtComplete As Boolean
RowCount = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA _
(Range("A1", Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)))
bFmtComplete = False
RowNR = 2
Range("A1:J1").Select
' Rows("1:1").Select
Selection.Copy................

Delete Row Of Duplicate Column Cells By Comparing 2 Columns Across 2 Worksheets

Mar 14, 2008

I am looking for a macro to look in Sheet 1 column A and compare the values to Sheet 2 column O. When it finds a duplicate I want it to delete the entire row in sheet 1. I dont want to have to manually sort anything if that's possible.

Comparing Two Columns And Returning Number Of Cells In One Column With Higher Values?

Apr 8, 2014

I have two Columns C and E that have dollar amounts in them. I want to compare each row in those columns and then total the number in column C that are higher that column E.

So basically C6>E6, C7<E7, C8=E8,C9>E9 should return the result of 2. There are two instances where the price in C is higher than the price in E.

Comparing 2 Timestamps?

Jan 22, 2014

Attached is an example.

I get data pulls of logged in time, and shift start times.

Example in column C the person's actual login time is there, and column D has their start time. If there's a variance of 'x' how could I have column E display the variance? In this example 15 minutes?

Basically, if there's a difference between the 2, I need a formula that tells me what difference is.

Comparing Two Tables

Jun 10, 2008

I have one .xls file that contains an inventory list of all the products that I want.

Unfortunately this .xls file does not contain the prices for these items. I have another .xls file that contains SKU numbers and the prices related to those SKU numbers.

Is there a way to run every single SKU in the first file against the second file and, when a match is found, take the entry in the price column of the second file and place it in the first file so that my first .xls file contains all my products with prices?

I included sample data.

Comparing 2 Values.

Nov 5, 2008

Comparing 2 values.

I need to compare the value's on 2 cells. I have a sheet setup for my sales I would like to compare each day of the week. So in other words I would like to compare this Monday with last Monday and know what the percentage of my sales ether up or down is.

Example:
Last Monday = sales \$100.00
This Monday = Sales \$200.00

100%

So If sales are up I would like the percentage amount font to be in green. But if sales are down I would like the percentage amount to be in red.

Comparing Two Cells

Nov 16, 2009

Is there a way to compare two cells and return true if they are the same, false if different? There is text and numerical data. As a side note, can anybody recommend a lightweight reference so I can sit for an evening or two and at least get an idea of what excel can do?

Comparing Strings ..

Mar 30, 2009

I have two string that I want too compare.

String 1 could be something like channel_0_user_defined._system
string 2 could be channel_0_user_defined

I want too compare string2 with string 1 at the left side of string 1.

I don't really know what I should use I found startswith, but vba doesn't have this particular function.

Comparing The Lists

Jun 9, 2009

I have two Excel lists. One master list (list A) contains all our email addresses from our customers. The other list (list B) contains a list of people who do NOT want to recieve emails. How do I take the emails from list B (there are 1,200 of them) and compare them automatically to list A? Basically if any email address from list B appears in list A, I want it to delete in list A.

Comparing Value Between Worksheet

Sep 15, 2009

i have two worksheets. group and search. in group sheet it contain are groups of club & nation. in sheet2 when click the button find it will prompt player name. for example,when i put torres it will tell us that he belong to Liverpool club & Spain.

Sep 14, 2008

say i have 4 columns of 5 values each consisting of 0's and 1's.

...a b c d
v 0 1 1 1
w 1 0 0 1
x 1 1 1 1
y 0 0 1 0
z 1 1 0 0

how would i write a function that would compare each value under column 'a' to each value under column 'b' and then return a value of 1 if they are equal, and return a value of 0 if they are not equal, then add up the return values.

(comparing column 'a' with 'b' you would get a result of 3.) then have the function continue on to compare column 'a' with column 'c'..'d; comparing column 'b'..'d', etc

so in long form: IF(av=bv,1,0) = 0
IF(aw=bw,1,0) = 0
IF(ax=bx,1,0) = 1
IF(ay=by,1,0) = 1
IF(az=bz,1,0) = 1

SUM(IFs) = 3

Comparing Two Lists?

Apr 3, 2012

I have two lists of data and am trying to write a formula that will return a "1" if the second list firstly contains one or more entries that are not in the first list and secondly the fourth cell on the same row of one or more of the entries not in the first list contains an "F".

The first list is in a sheet called "Select" cells J2:J7 and the second list is in a sheet called "Model" cells A2:A50. The second list will occasionally contain blank cells.

I have tried to use a combination of COUNTIF and VLOOKUP but am struggling to make any progress.

Comparing Days In VBA

Jun 29, 2007

Using VBA, I would like to compare the date found in Cell(datRow, colIndex) of the Recap workBOOK to the date found in Cell(varRow, 3) of the Deduction workBOOK.

I loop through several Recap workbooks, one for each month. The problem I am encountering is this: If the date(s) found in the Recap workbook are before the date(one date) found in the Deduction workbook, the procedure will add the value of data below it to a running variable total.

However, what I am Needing, is for the value only to be added to the total IF the DAY of the date found in the Recap workbook (not the entire date) falls before the DAY of the date found in the Deduction workbook.

I know this is lengthy, but I have researched this for hours and am finding little to help me. Is there a function used in VBA to compare only the day of a date? And can I use a conditional IF statement such that execution happens when Cells(varRow, 3).Value > Cells(datRow, colIndex).Value even though the cells reside in different workbooks (both are open during processing)?

Comparing Two Worksheets ....

Sep 8, 2007

have been trying to write a VB macro to compare two spreadsheets. Here is what I need help achieving....

Compare Sheet1 and Sheet2. Data exists in rows that have a unique identifier in one column.

If unique ID (with row of data) exists in Sheet1 and NOT Sheet2, add row from Sheet1 to Sheet3 and mark "REMOVE" in new column next to row.

If unique ID (with row of data) exists in Sheet2 and NOT in Sheet1, add row from Sheet2 to Sheet 3 and mark "ADD" in new column next to row.

If unique ID (with row of data) exists in both Sheet1 and Sheet2, take row from Sheet2 and place in Sheet3 and mark "UPDATE" in new column next to row.

Comparing Two Lists ..
