Subtracting 2 Columns Of Data From Each Other When Labels In Separate Columns Match

Feb 20, 2009

I have four columns of data, as follows:

label 1, value 1, label 2, value 2

I need to create a formula in the fith column that for each line will tell excel to:

look for entry in 'label 1' in 'label 2' if there is a match, then subtract value 1 from value 2, display result.

I have tried doing this with SUMIF but am getting nowhere fast....

Check To See If Dates Match In Two Separate Columns?

Apr 6, 2013

what i am trying to do is look at an entire column, and see if that same date exists in the other Activity tab, if the dates match, then show the activity

here is the formula i am using, =IF($A9=Activity!$A2,Activity!$B2,"No Activity")

my problem is that i am only able to isolate one of the cells,, how do i check the entire column?

in other words, if i select two weeks, those two weeks of activity will show, if i select all weeks, all of the weeks activity will show, right now i can only get one of the weeks

my data looks like the following

1st tab
1/8/2013 - 1/14/2013
1/29/2013 - 2/4/2013
1/22/2013 - 1/28/2013

Check To Match Columns Separate Sheets

Mar 20, 2007

I have a column on sheet 1 which contains 200 lines with a unique number in each row (account codes). I have another sheet (sheet 2) which contains the same column. sometimes an extra row for an extra account code is added to the col in sheet 1. I need to make sure that the col I have in sheet 2 always has exactly the same as the col in sheet one, where the same account code should never be repeated. I am currently trying to setup a sheet where I keep all the checks and controls.

Counting Formula (compare Values In 2 Separate Columns To See How Many Times The Same Value Appears In Both Columns)

Oct 13, 2008

I'm trying to compare values in 2 separate columns to see how many times the same value appears in both columns. Ideally I would be able to insert a range function to compare the values in the column "ID 1" against the values in column "ID 2" and return the count of times that a value appears in both columns. For example 2122, 1112 and 1718 appear in both columns and I would like the formula to return a count of 3.

ID 1ID 2
12342122
45671112
89101718
11122678
13144544
15162324
17189987
19201215
21221928
1976
2576
2345
4678

In my actual project I'm comparing 2 columns in the same worksheet. The column are column B with data in cells B2:B10266 against column C with data in cells C2:C18560.

Prevent Labels From Spilling Into Other Columns?

Jan 1, 2014

When you put a label in a column, that is wider than the column, and you don't wrap it or shrink to fit, etc. it "spills" into adjacent columns so the whole label is displayed. In some cases this might be desirable, but in others not.

You can prevent it from spilling by putting a blank space into the next adjacent column -- that truncates the display of the label -- but clearly this is not a good solution.

Is there a way to prevent labels from doing this so that only the portion of the label that is in the cell where the label is entered is visible on the spreadsheet? Of course you can see the entire label by selecting the cell itself, and that's what I want to do without it spilling into other columns.

Copy Columns Between Worksheets If The Columns Don't Match

Jun 7, 2006

I have 2 worksheets in which I have to copy one column of cells from one to
the other. The problem is that the "main" worksheet lists nearly 3,500
clients and I have to copy numbers into the "main" worksheet on weekly basis
from another worksheet that lists only about 1,100 of those 3,500 clients.

Both client lists are in alphabetical order, but I obviously cannot just copy
one column into the other, because then the numbers won't be matching the
correct clients.

How Do You Sort Columns So That They Match Up With Other Columns With Like Data

Jul 2, 2008

I have two columns one is web addresses and the other is email addresses but the rows do not line up. I was hoping that since the second half of the email address matches the web address I could somehow sort them so that the email address column and web address column match up. Here is an example but keep in mind that this list is about 9k long and this is just a sampling so you may not see any in this example that match. Also I may have more than one email address per website.

Match 2 Columns To Copy Information In Other Columns

Apr 21, 2007

I have 2 workbooks (workbook1 & workbook2). Information in column A and column N must match both workbooks per row/ cell (ie. if A2 and N2 in workbook1 match workbook2, copy information from 3 other columns (S, T, U from from workbook1 into workbook2 - cells S2, T2, U2). Workbook2 may have information in column S, T, U, but I need to over-write it with the information from workbook1. If the information does not match per that row/cell (ie. A2 in both worksheets are the same, but N2, they are not, so go to the next line that does match and copy the information into worksheet2). I do not want to use a V- lookup for this problem. I really need a marco.

Separate Name Into Two Columns

Oct 9, 2008

if anyone know if there is a formula that can separate a name which sometimes have two words or one or two space. For example a formula that can separate a name by first space in one column and the second half in the second column.

example: David T Blain

name is in column A,

column B is David T
column C is Blain.

I don't think this is possible with a formula, but if you think it is let me know.

I think it would be more efficient to do this with a macro, could you please see if you could provide a macro that can do this.

Compare 2 Separate Columns

I have a spreadsheet of products that are listed in column A and another list of products in column B. I need to find the difference in price in a percentage for each product. My problem is the lists differ a little bit in that there are more products in column A so they are not lined up correctly. Is there a way to have excel look in column A and find the match in column B and then line them up so the matching products are in the same row? This will cut out a lot of time having to do the formula in each cell rather than autofilling the formula.

Create Separate Columns From One Column

Jun 27, 2009

I have a spreadsheet with these columns:Group_Name
Contact Name
Company Name
Contact ID

Situation:
The Group Name Column has the name of the group that the Contact Name is a member of. The Contact Name could be a member of many Group Names and therefore there may be many rows of the same Contact Name one with each Group Name that they are a member of. I have manually created separate columns for each Group Name in the spreadsheet that is attached.

Goal:
I would like to have a macro that will look at the Group Name column and create a new column for each distinct group. I then would like the macro to go down the Contact Name column (I believe that I will have to have it sorted)and look at the Group Name that is listed in that row and put "True" in the Group Column that was created in the above step. Then, go to the next row, if the Contact Name is the same, look that the Group Name column and put "True" in the corresponding Group Column in the FIRST ROW OF THAT CONTACT NAME. Then Delete that row.

Matching Two Columns In Two Separate Worksheets!

Sep 7, 2008

I have two worksheets with one row of 'accounting' type numbers in A1:A100 (it can be shorter or longer) on both sheets. I need to run a search on worksheet one to see which of them exactly match any on the second worksheet and then highlight them.

It can be a macro or it can highlight each entry a different color. Something so that I can determine which two numbers go together and I can run the thing only once.

There most likely will not be multiples on the same worksheet but if there are it will be few. If multiples happen it is ok it just needs to be matched to the second worksheet in a different color than the other similar numbers.

Another thing is if there is no match in either worksheet that is ok it can just skip to the next number in the list and check that one. There does not need to be a match.

Splitting A List Of Values In Separate Columns?

May 8, 2014

I am trying to put something together on Excel.

1. In my first column(Let's call it "input"), there will be a variety of values from 1-10 which will appear in cells as 1,7,10 or 4,5,6,7 or any other similar variation. The quantity of numbers can vary and will always be comma delimited.

2. Following the first column are 10 additional columns. For simplicity, let's say they're labelled 1-10.

3. If 2,5,6,9 is present in the first cell, I want the number 1 in the columns labelled 2,5,6 and 9.
If 1,4 is present in the first cell, I want the number 1 in the columns labelled 1 and 4.

The input will only be in the first cell so I am hoping to find a way to automate the placement of 1's in the appropriate column depending on the input in the first column("input").

As a bonus, I'd like all cells not present in the first column to appear as a "0".

Split The Date And Time Into Two Separate Columns?

Aug 20, 2014

After I imported this data, the date and time is in the same column in the format of "mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss" military time. How do I write a VBA code to split up the date and time into two separate columns. One column would only have "mm/dd/yyyy" while the other only have "hh:mm:ss" in military time.

Eventually, I need to extract information from the data by looking for a specific time. I would also plot time vs something.

I don't know if treating it as a string would work, because it would just become a text rather than a time, right?
