I do backups on a daily schedule. Given the spreadsheet called "A" which is a list of all clients and current backup policy as of last week, and the file "B" which is a snapshot list of servers in our supported environment, does someone have a clever way to determine which systems are in "B" that are not in "A"? The clients are listed in column M in spreadsheet A and this column may have multiple client names listed due to a policy that includes multiple clients in the netbackup schedule.
I've two sheets containing Incoming and Outgoing data. On the Outgoing Sheet, the Reply ref. shows the corresponding Incoming document replied for. I want to have the Reply Document ref. on the Incoming sheet corresponding to the document replied.
The columns that I want to match up are not exact matches. Multiple values from sheet1 colA can match up to one value in sheet2 colA by using the first 5 characters of the cell value.
Here is the workbook to go with the sample data set I put below.
As of now, the formula is generating a 2 in the banana row. But there are no bananas documented in sheet2.
How can I get my output to Sheet1 ColB to be accurate without having to create new columns/data with truncated values for the lookup?
If I use this formula in Sheet1 ColC (then copy downwards /autofill):
to grab the Sheet2 colB. It works fine except for in the cases where sheet1 colA values have no match in sheet2 colA (i.e. Sheet1 A4-banana1).
That vlookup formula will output SOMETHING because of the nature of MATCH using either -1 or 1 as a match_type option. I cannot use MATCH if I want to solve this issue...but I do not know what else to do.
I know of a roundabout way to do this but I would like to stay away from "creating new data". (Create/insert a new column in Sheet2. The first row would be =Left($A2,5) then downfilled. This way I can use exact value in the MATCH formula in Sheet1's VLOOKUP.) If VBA is the only way I can "automate" this lookup output to be correct, then that is the road I'll have to take
I’m trying to figure out how to compare two different versions of a sheet with each other and to identify which lines has changed. Here is a simplified example:
When using this formula I get an error in cell J12 that reports a no change even though the values has changed. The error occurs due to the blank cell found in cell C7 but I can’t seem to find a way around the problem? (except for adding an if(cell=””;0;cell) before every cell which isn’t really practical in my actual data)
Furthermore my actual data has more the 10.000 lines and +30 columns so if the formula I use for change tracking can be done easier in any other way I would be happy to get some help? Maybe I should even consider a macro?
I have two separate columns of text and want to identify similarities/matches. vlookup false is good for exact matches but vlookup true is too approximate - is there a way to hone vlookup true to match first 4 or 5 text characters rather than just the first? If vlookup no good for this what is best function for identifying approximate matches in two separate text lists?
Not sure if this should be in VBA or Formulas however what im trying to achieve:
I have a data report that i pull today, tomorrow i want to run the same report and see if there are any differences on the report. e.g show data that was not on the previous report.
Id imagine id have a sheet with yesterdays data, sheet with todays data, sheet with Differences that only shows the new lines between the report. Then after i have done i would just create a macro clear the difference sheet so its blank, copy todays data over to yesterdays data and repeat the process daily.
Every day i create a attendence sheet with names, who was attening a club the last 21 days. I need some kind of report showing who is in Sheet1(Today) and not in Sheet2(Yesterday)="new people" and who is in Sheet2 but not in Sheet1 (people that stoped attending, droped out the list).
I tryed with "countif" and "Vlookup" but have to change the formulars on two sheets every day and i would rather like to leave leave the Sheets untouched.
I need to compare the 2 sheets with respect to a unique key. Once the unique key matches , I need to compare 5 other columns of the two excel sheet.
Note : There could be missing rows in either of the excel , so its necessary that we look up 2nd sheet completely to find the unique key.
For Example : In sheet 1 : The unique key is preent in column B and in Sheet 2: The unique key is present in column I. Once we locate the rows in both the sheets with the unque key matching, we would need to comapre , columns A, C, E AND F of the sheet 1 with columns A,B,C AND D of sheet 2.
We need to report if all the data matches when the unique key is same.
With Excel i'd like to compare the stock of about 6000 different products from my supplier on a daily base. I want to know the changes in the inventory (indicated by Yes, No or Low). Is it also possible to show newly added/ removed products?What is the best way to do this?
I have the following code which compares a string between two sheets. First sheet is 'data', second is 'saw'. I'm trying to copy an array of numbers (energy consumption for each hour of the day) based on machine ID and date (hence the compare string). How to modify it so it will copy the array of 24 number, not just the first number?
I have a few worksheets 'saw', drill, lathe. So I am using ActiveSheet, so I can run the same macro as all data is in the 'data' worksheet.
Sub test_copy() Dim a, i As Long, txt As String a = Sheets("data").Range("a1").CurrentRegion.Value With CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary") .CompareMode = 1

I have a huge lists of names that I need to work with. The first is a list of all employees. The second is a list of those employees who have submitted their monthly report. In theory every record should be a match. I need to compare the lists and mark the people who are missing their monthly report in the main list of all employees.
Not sure how to set this up in Excel
Sheet 1: Column A - All employees names, Columns B-M: used to show whether a report has been submitted. Sheet 2-13 (July, Aug., Sept., through June): Column A - employees who have submitted their report.
I need Sheet 1 to show either all of the missing records across all the months or it can show the ones that have been received. Either will work.
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.
I have a table with many columns of data on sheet1
Is it possible to have sheet2 have ... oh I dont know... say 5 columns. In which I can choose the headers that correspond to the headers in sheet1. Therefore comparing the columns that I want simply by changing the header?
What I'm attempting to do is analyze data on spread sheet. I've attached an example. what I need to do is compare columns "E" and "I". But I have numerous means of comparing the data. I think I will need three different formulas which is okay and am unsure if VBA is better. For example: I compare "E2" and "I2"...ect: 1) I would need to compare complete cell 2) I would need to compare the first three digits 3) I would need to compare the middle digits If you towards the end you can see that some will compare to a BLANK cell if column "E" is ever blank. I first tried using countif but couldn't get it done. I only need totals that do not match in this category.i.e. 25 of 140 do not match.
I have currently browsed the forums and have came up with a code to compare two columns from two separate excel books and then highlight anything matching with the CompareRange. Here is a few more details about the problem:
- I have two excel sheets. And data like this in each sheet:
(First Sheet) (Second Sheet) -A B N O -7 .7 3 .56 -6 .6 8 .45 -5 .5 9 .55 -4 .4 11 .2 -3 .3 8 .22 -2 .2 9 .55 -1 .1 8 .54
As you can see, given this example nothing should be highlighted once the macro is run since nothing from Column A or B from the first sheet matches directly with Column N & O from the second sheet. The problem is that with the macro (module) I have come up with will highlight "3" from Column A and ".2" from Column B, just because they appear in Column N & Column O respectivally. What I want: I only want a number to be highlighted if both the numbers "7" & ".7" are matched in the same row of Column N & Column O on the other spreadsheet. To be a little more precise, I'll give an example. Say I edited the data to be like this.
(First Sheet) (Second Sheet) A B N O 7 .7 3 .56 8 .45 8 .45 5 .5 9 .55 11 .4 11 .2 3 .3 8 .22 2 .2 9 .55 1 .1 8 .54
With this data, I would want the second row of A & B ("8" & ".45") highlighted, while my error "3" of Column A and ".2" of Column B is not highlighted. Also, I would like it if row 4 of Column A & B ("11" & ".4") is not highlighted at all either, just because in O it is .2 and in B it would be .4 even though the 11's match. Attached is the macro/module I have entered in which is working kind of correctly but producing the mistake. And also, (kind of a lesser problem), both the files with data will have the same header, example would be if Column A & Column N both had "Dogs" as it's title in Row 1 and Column B & O both had "Cats" as it's title in Row 1. Is there anyway the macro can be adjusted so it compares those two columns between the two workbooks without me even having to select or assigning a range?
HTML Code: Sub Find_Matches() Dim Column1 As Range Dim Column2 As Range
I have column A which contains a range of part numbers, and column B is an On Hand quantity of that part number.
Column C is just like column A, in that it contains the same part numbers but it has about 1,000 additional part numbers that are obsolete. Column D has the On Hand quantity for Column C.
Column A and B are old information as far as the On Hand quantities, where Column C and D are up to date On Hand. The problem is the old outdated part numbers in column C.
How do I make column A and column C match, but not lose their respective On Hand quantities? I know this sounds discombobulated, but basically I need column A's part numbers, with column D's on hand quantity.
I'm trying to compare addresses in a worksheet, column A and column C have the addresses in them, in column A there are 44063 rows and column C has 43751 rows , both columns should have the same number of rows in each column because they should have the same number of addresses in each column but they dont so what i need to find out is which addresses from column A arent in column C and which addresses in column C arent in Column A and have the result put in column D.
workbook1 column A has tag numbers, workbook2 column A also has tag numbers. I want to compare the 2 columns and if the tag number in book 1 is also in book 2 i want it to return 25B-F138-28-01 in column B workbook1.
I have need to do a comparison of 2 values located in different columns. As this is almost impossible to describe in text format, I have included a spreadsheet showing exactly the problem. Im sure the solution will involve INDEX and MATCH but every permutation I have tried has failed (possibly theres another way?).
