# 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 And Return Values From Column In Order?

Feb 5, 2013

Ok, imagine this data (say column A). I want to have a cell that automatically searches for the least value (will always be the first number from top) and returns it in another cell. And then repeat the same for the second number from the top.

## Index Match With Small For Generating Result In Ascending Order Even If Values Same

May 19, 2014

Here is a code for me to print the names in ascending order even if values are of same means it is showing one name only instead of the other name

means if values are A=1 B=2 C=3 D=4 E=2

it has to show like this A B E C D

But the result is coming like this A B B C D

Formula which i used

=OFFSET(B\$6,MATCH(SMALL(C\$6:C\$18,ROW()-ROW(C\$6)+1),C\$6:C\$18,0)-1,0)test.xls

Here i am attaching the sample file for your reference

## Return Multiple Values That Match Single Search Criteria?

Nov 28, 2012

Attached is a sample workbook, but essentially what I'm looking to do is automate the process of searching through a data set where the value of interest (in this case, names) often has multiple entries, with different values attached to each instance.

I would like to be able to get a list of all values in a given column that match a specific name in another column.

Currently I'm using a basic INDEX/MATCH search just to see whether the data exists at all, but that's only half of what I have to do here, and I'm totally stumped on how to get a comprehensive list of all matches.

For reference, if you look at the sample, what I need is a list of all values in the "CPT" column that match the name searched for in the first column.

The actual data set size is at most 3-400 entries, if that makes a difference in how to approach this.

## Offset / Index / Match - Using 3 Functions To Search For And Return Values From Data Sheet

Jan 19, 2014

Trying to grasp the concept of using these 3 functions to search for and return values from a data sheet.

The attached spread sheet has performance data for a group of employees.

What I need to do is find a particular employee then return a value for one of the category's.

For instance, I need to find "10TE03 ANGIE HOLLIS" Parts Usage on color or cell C10 in the attached sample.

Sometimes new category's are added to column A adding to the number of rows so a simple offset is not reliable.

Once I get that working, I then need to use a named range to total and average different data points for groups of employees by teams.

Maybe Offset-Index-Match is not even the way to go here?

## 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.

## How To Use Find Function In Order To Search Through A Protected Worksheet

## Lookup All Values In Ascending Order And Return All Corresponding Values.

Oct 23, 2008

I have a problem with the formula that lookup all values in ascending order and returning all the corresponding values. eg: I was intended to lookup for the value in ascending order under the Total Occurrence and returning all the corresponding value under the Nos Group but encountered the same Nos Group was returned when there is same value appeared under the Total Occurrence.

## How To Ask Formula To Search For Multiple Values Within One Search

Mar 4, 2014

I need one formula to copy and paste the checkcard data changing it from this "CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623" to "CHECKCARD 5623", but I need one formula to look for multiple known checkcard numbers. I will have more then one typically in the bank download so I need to search and copy at least two known numbers as shown below.

I am providing the formula that I am using right now, "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("5623",B3)),RIGHT(B3,41),"")" but it only works for one checkcard number? Also I don't really need to capture the DEBIT or CREDIT that will always be at the end, it would be redundant. If it's easier to write the formula including that data that is no problem. What I want to copy and move into an adjacent cell is in red.

Here is the source data:
Row 2 - SONIC DRIVE IN#1531 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX5623 DEBIT
Row 3 - JASON'S DELI # 125 Q64 AUSTIN TXDEBIT FOR CHECKCARD XXXXXX9718 DEBIT

## VLOOKUP / INDEX And MATCH To Return All Values That Match

Feb 4, 2014

I have two sheets of data , sheet A and Sheet B.

Sheet B contains a column called "Name" and for each name, and for each name there are corresponding numbers. In sheet A, I have a "list of interest" in column A. What i want to do look through the data in sheetB to find a match from the list of interest and return the corresponding letters, located in column A.

I have filled out the first two rows of results that should be returned as an example.

One idea i had was to put a vlookup formula in each column result 1 to result 6 so i can catch all 6 "Serves" columns from column B, but there may be duplicates in the serve columns and vlookup only reports the first match.

## Using Index / Match Function For Two Column Match Values

Aug 28, 2012

Basically where the columns say 2011 or 2012 AND 1, 2, 3. I want to be able to have it index the number below based on the GL number on the left and both the year and period on the top. I think that you can do with using the sumproduct function with the binary, but the computer is a little dated and it takes a while to run those calculations.

## How To Find Non-zero Values And Place Them In Order They Appear Along With Name

Jan 14, 2014

I have a sheet that lists all of the suppliers that we use (A2:A10). I have code that pulls the total number of reject by month for each supplier (C2:C10). What I would like is a formula that takes those values for the supplier and places them next to each other in columns E (see E2:E6) and does the same with the total reject values next to the applicable supplier (see F2:F6) without all of the zeros.

I think it is some kind of index and match function but cannot figure it out. I have attached an example of what I am trying to achieve.

Also, if at all possible, I would like to know if there is a way to auto populate a chart with those values and not the blanks that are generated (row 7 down in my example) so that my chart does not contain a bunch of blank space.

## Adding Values Across Different Worksheets Not In Same Order?

Jan 29, 2014

Let's say I have 3 worksheets, the first of which being the total of the 2 other one, let's say total Apples, Red Apples, Green Apples.

The first column has the name of the customer, and the other columns afterwards have several other values such as sales in 2012, sales in 2013, year-to-date sales, growth etc...

I want people to be able to type in the name of the customer, then the sales for Red Apples, and the same in the worksheet for Green Apples, and then their total is shown in the Total Apples worksheet. The problem is that not all customers will buy both, and so overtime the cells will no longer be aligned to have one formula dragged across both worksheets.

Is there a way to get Excel to search the entries in both worksheets and compile them in the Total worksheet, summing entries that are under the same supplier name?

## Reverse The Order Of Values In A Column Or Row?

## 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 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 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.

## Getting Duplicated Values Depending On Rank Order

May 28, 2009

So, I have some names and values. Rank function give me order for those values.
Small function gives me ascending order. I want to get first n (let say 5) values back next to each other but can't use VLOOKUP function because sometimes I get duplicates (red numbers).

If there is more same numbersthat small function returns... It need to give me all of them, no matter 5 is limit. how to get back values of rank function that are duplicated. Book1.xls

## Check If The Values Of A List Are In Progressive Order

Jan 18, 2013

I have several series of 13 figures (from 0 to 20), such as :

000141833000001

I would like to filter those series with the following condition :

Each figure (except the zeros) should be higher or equal to the first figure (found on the right) which is not a zero.

In the example :

14 should be higher or equal to 18 : FALSE
8 should be higher or equal to 3 : TRUE
3 should be higher or equal to 3 : TRUE
3 should be higher or equal to 1 : TRUE

So, the serie is FALSE, due to the fact that 14 is not higher than 18.

## 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
