# Sorting Rows By Comparing Cells ...

Mar 13, 2007

the system works by whoever has the most points wins.. i already have my formulas and everything done..

i want the excel program to move the entire row, if possible, by whoever has the most points to the top..

(i.e If ryan d. has the most points he will be is vince v.'s spot)

can this be done automatically in excel or do i have to do it by hand?

## Comparing Times & Sorting

Aug 13, 2009

I have a column of different "finish" times (hh:mm:ss). I would like to have the adjacent column look at all of the "finish times" and post their ranking from 1st place to last.

## Comparing Customer Names In Rows And Returning Text Data In Different Cells If Same

Jan 26, 2010

I've got a list of donor names, names listed multipled times in Column A, each row with different donation data. For instance:

Sheet 1

A1 - Mary Jones, B1- Internet Donation
A2 - Mary Jones, B2 - Silent Auction Purchase
A3 - Mary Jones, B3 - Event Ticket Purchase
A4 - Gary Jones, B4 - Foundation Grant
A5 - Gary Jones, B5 - Internet Donation
A6 - Sara Parker, B6 - Event Ticket Purchase

I want Excel to compare rows A1 and A2, and if the name has not changed, enter the donation data from Column B into another sheet that will just list that person's name once:

Sheet 2

A1 - Mary Jones, B1- Donation1, C1 -Donation2, D1 - Donation3
A2 - Gary Jones, B2 - Donation1, C2 - Donation2, D1 - Donation3 (which would return no value because there the name changes

Does this involve IF, MATCH or VLOOKUP formulas?

## 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".

end product.xlsx

## Comparing Rows In 2 Sheets?

Jun 27, 2014

I'm trying to compare cells in 2 sheets, and if those cells are equal, I want to select the whole row that the cell is in, and copy it into a third sheet.

## Comparing Data In Multiple Rows

Apr 20, 2009

I have a spreadsheet containing donation data for a non-profit organization with over 25,000 rows. The spreadsheet contains a lot of data, and is sorted by donor name, donation date (when the donation was made) and the feedback date (feedback on how the donation was used).

I'm looking to analyze how many transactions were made by a donor within 10 days of receiving feedback for a previous donation. The condition to check for is

(donor name is the same) AND (donation date >= feedback data for a previous donation) AND (donation date <= feedback data for a previous donation + 10 days).

How do I best perform this comparison? For instance, a donor may have made 20 donations, so I need to compare these donations amongst themselves and flag the ones where the donation date within 10 days of the feedback date for any other donation. I need to perform this exercise for each individual donor.

## Hiding Particular Rows By Comparing Values In Array?

I need to hide the rows in an excel whose value is equal to the array list that has been already hardcoded...How to do this...

## Comparing Two Rows Replacing Values In Columns

May 29, 2014

I am facing a problem in evaluating a problem. I am referencing from the screenshot of excel file. I want to replace the values of Column-C for which column-A matches with column -G. And, the remaining will remain same.

I am also attaching the excel file.

## Comparing The Rows In Different Columns And Displaying The Results?

Jul 18, 2013

I have two groups of lottery results. The first group has the last year results of 200 rows, and the second group displays this year results of 100 rows. I want to start comparing the first row of the second group (green group) with all the rows of the first group( blue group)

## Comparing The Lengths Of 2 Data Rows At A Time

Jun 12, 2009

Assume there's an even number of rows containing textual data.

COL A
text1
text2
text3
text4

I would like to compare the lengths of text1 to text2, and return the row containing the greater of the two/delete the row containing the shorter of the
two. In either case, the contents below would then have to be shifted up by one. Then repeat for the next 2 rows all the way down to the last row using VBA.

## Conditional Format Comparing Data Between Rows

Nov 11, 2009

(Core starting issue solved but other threads were created to continue with trouble spots.)

I'm terrified to use VBA just yet, so right now I'm determined to highlight values in my spreadsheet just using conditional formatting.

I have 5 plus 1 columns of data. For example,

A B C D E....F
3 2 4 5 7....2
4 6 1 3 4....1
4 7 4 5 8....4
2 1 5 3 9....1

I successfully applied a MIN formula to compare between columns on each
row and display in F the MIN value. Notice each cell going down F has the
minimum value in analyzing across each row.

Now, I *also* want to apply a formula on the whole F column to compare these resultant MIN values
and give me the MINIMUM value between those as well, so now I'm comparing across
rows. Got it? Now then.....I want the ENTIRE row that has this MIN value in F to be highlighted, because that will be the best choice for the application of what I'm doing. Did you understand this paragraph. It might have been confusing, but I think I said everything correctly, so read it carefully.

I've tried all sorts of "Formula is", "Cell value is", dollar sign this, dollar sign that, no dollar sign this, <, >, =, highlighted ALL the block of data, highlighting JUST the column across the rows of which will be compared, only highlighted one cell, but nothing has worked.

Is my problem that you can't have 2 formulas in one cell? So then I thought I should ADD another condition, but nothing works.

Let me throw in one more element that I did not state. If anywhere down the F column there is a 0, I don't want that to be my minimum. I want it to evaluate and give me the minimum value greater than 0.

Please read everything I wrote carefully. It might be confusing, but I hope someone has an answer, because it sure has frustrated me.

Now, I'm thinking that VBA programming may give me answers, but I am so terrified of macros, I don't know how to begin that. I have this impression based on the many sites I've looked at on the internet that many people do macros and it's quite easy, but it's funny to me that I am so scared. There's something about me freaking out that I won't have a period or a quote in the right place and I'll stress my day away over it.

## Comparing Cell Values And Moving Whole Rows?

Jul 2, 2014

I'm trying to compare the values of columns B and G and if any of the cells are G < B, I would like to move the whole row into the second worksheet. And only if possible, it would be awesome if the macro could check column A for duplicates before the value comparison and sum up the column B if there are duplicates. In my example row 6 and 7 on column A have the same suppliers code and the amount totals to 2.

In this case for example, the value of the third row of G is lower than B, and therefore I would like the whole row 3 to be cut out from worksheet 1 and moved to worksheet 2.

Original view of sheet 1:
SUPPLIERSCODE
ORDERAMOUNT
PRODUCTNAME
BARCODE

SUPPLIERSCODE
WAREHOUSE STOCK

And then cut out the rows in which G

## Copy Rows Based On Comparing Values In Columns

Nov 26, 2012

I'm new to macros and VBA so I am wondering if it is possible for a macro to compare values in column B of sheet2 and column B of sheet3 and for the values that DON'T match i.e. unique values to column B of sheet2, copy row from sheet2 to sheet4? This will aid my processing time drastically if I can copy all the rows from sheet 2 to sheet 4 where the model number in column B of sheet 2 doesn't appear in column B of sheet 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:
Dim Rng As Range
Dim i As Integer

## Macro For Deleting Duplicates / Comparing Rows And Retaining Minimum Value?

Apr 6, 2014

I have data from Columns A to D. I want to do the
following:

1. Look for duplicates in all column A

2. For each duplicate found in column A, check if all values in column B are also duplicate.

3. If the condition in (2) is satisfied, compare column D for all the rows; select the row with the minimum value in column D, and delete the other rows.

For example:
A B C D

Row1: Abby 04/01/2014 7:00PM 0.98437
Row2: Sam 04/01/2014 9:00PM 0.35627
Row3: Abby 04/04/2014 7:00PM 0.68932[code]....

## Comparing Entire Rows Within 2 Worksheets And Then Display Output In Another Worksheet Using VBA

Feb 6, 2014

I'm trying to compare 2 worksheets with the same headers(NAME, ADDRESS, CONTACT NO...). What codes should I use that when there is a duplicated row in worksheet A and worksheet B, it will be deleted and when there are 2 names with different addresses and/or contact no, the whole row in file A will be obtained. Output should also be in another worksheet. It goes like this.

worksheet A
JOE ABC 123
MIL XYZ 567
NIK LMN 234
NED QRS 456

[Code]...

So the output should be:

worksheet C
JOE ABC 123
MIL XYZ 567
NIK LMN 234
NED QRS 456
JIM JKL 345
SAM FGH 789

Is this possible in vba?

## 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................

## 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?

## VBA: Comparing A Value To Several Different Cells

Jun 8, 2006

I need to compare a value to several cells and print the value into a new cell if and only if the value is not in any of the cells I am comparing to.

Say cells A1, A4, A8 and A12 contains different numbers. I want to compare a value, say 120, to the values of the above cells and if it is not contained in one of those cells I want to enter 120 into cell A16. If A1, A4, A8 or A12 contains the value 120 I want to leave A16 blank or write 0 to it.

Is there an easy way of doing this? Right now I am using a if-test for each of the cells I am comparing to, but this gets very messy as the number of cells increases.

## Comparing Two Cells With Another

Mar 16, 2007

how to compare two cells (say, today's date with the date an order was supposed to be sent out), with a third cell that either has a tick in it, or nothing. If there's an easier way to do this other than VB code, I haven't found it. I tried conditonal formatting but it wouldn't let me have a condition in which it just checked the third cell, it needed to compare it with the selected one.

## Sorting Many Rows At Once

Nov 14, 2008

I'm running Excel 2003 on Windows 2000. I'm working with a worksheet that is about 10,000 rows long and 25 columns wide. The first and second columns all have data in them, and the third through twenty fifth could have data. From row to row, if there is data present it will be in columns from left to right. By that I mean that if there is data in four columns of a particular row, it will always be in columns 1-4, not spread out throughout the 25 columns.

What I'm trying to do is sort the data in each row so that values ascend from left to right. Here's a very simple version of what the data looks like:

A B C D E F
1 a 6 3
2 b 5 9 2 8
3 c 6 5 2
4 d 9
5 e 3 9

When I'm done I would want the data to look like this:

A B C D E F
1 a 3 6
2 b 2 5 8 9
3 c 2 5 6
4 d 9
5 e 3 9

## Sorting Of Rows

Jun 4, 2009

how do I cut rows and paste into another sheet/file based on the values in a row.
For example in row A

A
1 123
2 123
3 123
4 333
5 333
6 444
7 333
8 444

I need to copy all the 123 into a sheet/file and the 333 into another sheet/file.

## Comparing Multiple Cells

Feb 11, 2009

I have two excel files. The data is arranged by column. I want to take 3 or more cells (from three different columns) from a particular row and match them up with three cells (in 3 different columns but in the same row). The three cells should be in the same row. However the matching row may appear in a different order in each of the two lists. When Excel finds a match, I want it to return true. How can I go about doing something like this?

I have attached a file explaining what I mean. I am trying to match the three cells in list one with three cells in one of the rows in list 2. However the number of cells in each list is different and there are some cells in list 2 which are not in list 1 and vice versa. There may also be extra columns, which I have not included for the sake of simplicity.

## Comparing The Same Cells In Two Worksheets

Aug 22, 2008

I would like to make a macro which compares the content of the same cells in two worksheets which are in the same workbook.

More clearer I have a workbook with two sheets (Sheet1 and Sheet2). What I would like the macro to do is to check cell A1 in Sheet1 and compare it to cell A1 in Sheet2 and so on till the last cell (IV65536). If there is a differnce between the two cells, then it should highlight the background of the cell in Sheet1.

I know that there has been similar requests on this forum (I searched and read them) but thew were different.

## Comparing Certain Numbers In Two Different Cells

Nov 7, 2008

I was wondering if someone can at least point me in the right direction with respect to comparing two numbers within a value in two different cells. For example:

If one cell has the value "AB123456"
And the cell below it has a value of "AB124658"

I want to be able to determine the difference (with VBA code) between both cells by just looking at the fourth and fifth characters ("23" and "24", respectively) in each cell value.

## Comparing Text In Cells..?

Jan 26, 2005

I have a spreadsheet that has long text sentences in each cell. I have a 2nd spreadsheet which is a slightly updated version of the first spreadsheet. The slight updates consisted of editing the odd word here or there out of the first spreadsheet.

Unfortunately, I didn't keep track of the changes I made, and I need to know what they are.

It's easy to tell if a change has been made, simply by comparing the cells. But I can't find an easy way to find out exactly what change was made. Comparing the cells a line at a time is very time consuming.

## MACRO Comparing Cells ...

Dec 21, 2006

I have a Workbook with two Sheets MAIN and STATS

Col A in both sheets contain text values (names)

I need a macro which will:-

Look at each name in Col A MAIN sheet.

See if there is a match in Col A of STATS sheet.

If there is a match then enter "YES" in Col E

e.g Smith Eddie is is in the Cell A20 MAIN sheet, Smith Eddie is in Cell A55 STATS sheet, so Enter "YES" in Cell E55 STATS sheet.
