# Comparing Then Adding

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 Columns On Different Worksheets And Adding Rows Where Matches Occur

Jan 18, 2014

Essentially what I want to automate is a check through one list on the Sheets("Notes") in column A, with another column B on Sheets(template). If there is a match I want to insert a part of the row that the match occurred on Sheet("Notes"), and insert it above the row where the match occurred on Sheets(template).

Here is my code so far, currently I keep getting a "Application-defined or object defined error" on the line

VB:
Sheets("Notes").Range(Cells(i, 2), Cells(i, 11)).Copy
VB:
Sub add_notes(template As String)
Dim Rng As Range
Dim i As Integer

## 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

## Adding Time: Adding Individual Cells Works, But SUM Doesn't

Mar 28, 2008

I have a column of times: e.g. 10:03:00 and I would like to add them all up.

=A1+A2 works fine.

=sum(A1:A10) does not.

## Adding Dim'd Variables: Ignoring Strings & Adding Number

Jan 13, 2007

I've got a problem involving several Dim'd Variables needing to be added up, they're all Dim'd as Variants though as they can be either strings or numbers at any time.

I need a formula (VBA) to add them up (to add their actual numeric values - not just a "1" if they contain a number) and ignore them all together if they contain string values.

## Adding Data With Userform: Check For Duplicate Before Adding

Feb 14, 2007

I have a userform that I'm using to add data to a worksheet, with the following

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim OutSH As Worksheet
Set OutSH = Sheets("Sheet1")

OutSH.Cells(nextrow2, 1).Value = Surname.Value
OutSH.cells(nextrow2,2).value = ID.value
OutSH.cells(nextrow2,3).value = Date.value
......
I need to ensure that duplicate entries are not made for the same person on the same date. The ID is unique to each person.

IF statement that can check for a duplicate and then come up with a dialouge box with some custom text, and then exiting the sub?

## Adding Values In Cells (stops Adding After Row 14)

Oct 1, 2009

I am trying to add numbers from cells if it IsNumeric and for some reason in column K the macro doesnt recognize numbers after row 14?

The range column is "E4:E"
Search criteria is the letter "R" in column "E" Then using OffSet, I go thru other columns and process data. Most of the macro works except for column K after row 14?

## 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 The Cells

Apr 6, 2009

I have two spreadsheets I would like to compare against each other, last weeks inventory (Sheet 1) and this weeks (Sheet 2). All items are listed by unit number, is there a way to have all unit numbers on Sheet 1 colored red that are not on Sheet 2 and vice versa?

## 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 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 Two Columns

May 5, 2014

1) if Column M has the value "School" then corresponding value in column N should have oly "Bus","Subject","Teacher". if values in Column B other than "Bus","Subject","Teacher" then the cell should populate RED Color.

2) if Column M has the value "College" then corresponding value in column N should have oly "Box","Madam","World". if values in Column B other than "Box","Madam","World" then the cell should populate RED Color.

## Comparing Value To Three Groups

Here's one:

Column C (starting at C6) contains the team number. I want column B to find out if the team number is an AM, Mid or PM team.

I have listed the AM teams at J1:U1, the Mid teams at J2:K2 and the PM teams at J3:V3.

How can the formula in column B search those ranges and determine if the team in column C is AM, Mid or PM?

## Comparing 2 Reports

## 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 ..

Oct 1, 2007

I have two lists in the same sheet. List one spread over 3 columns contains all the possible postcodes available to my job, the second list once again over 3 columns contains all the postcodes my job is currently using.

How can I find out the Postcodes that I am not currently using from the available list. I am sure it is a simple Lookup command, but cant for the life of me figure it out.

## Comparing 2 Workbooks

## Comparing Two Lists

May 9, 2008

I have a worksheet that contains six columns (A-F). I am trying to compare the values found in column F (~50 values) with the values found in column E (~1500 values). Both columns contain unique values. The majority of values in Column F are contained within Column E. The goal is to run a function that returns all rows in column E that contain a value found in Column F. I've been trying VLookups and what not, but my overall goal is to match up all values found in Column F with the appropriate row that contains the same value in Column E.

First Name
Last Name
Utility
Email
Account Number

## Comparing The Ranges

Sep 25, 2008

I have 3 sheets. Sheets 1 & 2 contain lists of data occupying columns A to M. Although the data on these sheets generally will be different, there are occasions where sheet 2 may contain identical rows to sheet 1.

What I want to do is two separate things -

copy the duplicated rows to sheet 3, and then in columns N & O indicate the row numbers from sheets 1 & 2 where the duplicates can be found (this only where the entire row matches)

do the same as above, but only where the contents of columns I & J match (rather than the entire row).

## 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 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.

## VBA Comparing Two Sheets

Mar 30, 2009

I have 4000 activities in the rows; I want to know if there are changes occur (e.g. duration, dates, quantities & etc.).

I would like to compare the two sheets with the same Columns and Identifiers, Say sheet1 and Sheet2 and I want the result to be in Sheet3. Sheet1 is the target & Sheet2 is the current changes.

Is it possible? What will be my code?

## Comparing Two Lists ....

Apr 30, 2009

I have a list of names, some of which occur several times, with values attributed to the names in the adjacent column. I want a list in which the names occur once and the all the values belonging to the name appear in the row the name is in. I have code which almost does it, but not quite.

My data looks like this example:

fred 10
dave 1
jill 4
fred 11
marc 74

I want:

dave 1,
fred 10,11
jill 4,
marc 74,

dave
fred
jill
marc

and then run my code.

My code is:

Option Explicit
Sub Compare()
Dim ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet
Dim i As Long, j As Long, LR As Long
Set ws1 = Sheets("Deutsch")
Set ws2 = Sheets("Deutsch2")

It works fine for a while, then gives me an 'error 1004 object or application error' at always the same point, when it gets to row 144 in the destination list.

The editor tells me I should debug the line 'If ws1.Cells(i, 5) = ws2.Cells(j, 5)' in the second 'Do'-block in the code.
