Excel 2007 - comparing values in one worksheet to another

Q: Excel 2007 - comparing values in one worksheet to another

Hey guys, I have a spredsheet with 3 seperate worksheets. One has a huge list of properties in a column, and the second worksheet has another huge list of properties in a column. I need to know how to compare column 1 (on worksheet 1) with column 2 (on worksheet 2) and then return values that have close or exact match.


Table 1 Table 2

Sky Hotel Moon Hotel
Golden palace hotel Golden palace hotel
Atrium Hotel Atrium Hotel
Beach Hotel Beach hotel

I need these values to be compared, and ones that match/or do not match to be listed on worksheet 3. E.G


Table 1 Table 2
Golden Palace Golden Palace
Atrium Hotel Atrium Hotel
Beach Hotel Beach Hotel

(notice how sky hotel has not been displayed here)

If Vlookup or something similar is the formulae to use, could you tell me how to use it, as I've tried but to no result.

Thanks guys!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Excel 2007 - comparing values in one worksheet to another

The simple answer is arrange the tables next to each other (1 in column A, 2 in column B), then use:


in column C to return TRUE or FALSE.

However, I suspect it's more complicated than you're suggesting.

Hello all. I have 2 spreadsheets which contain subscription information for 2 different products costing 21.58 and 5.96. I'm trying to merge this information so that if Mr A in spreadsheet 1 is shown as subscribing to Product B and the same person in spreadsheet 2 is shown as subscribing to Product C, an additional column shows in spreadsheet 1 so that it then appears as: Mr A - 21.58 - 5.96

If not, the columns would show Mr A - 21.58 - 0 (or blank) etc

The code for VLOOKUP is straight-forward but only returns the first row. I need it to reference every row and cross-reference the data.

I'm using Windows 7 and Excel 2010. I've attached a small example though the actual spreadsheet has around 3000 rows. I only need to do this once to get a single file up and running.

Any ideas

Many thanks

Hi all,

I am experiencing some problems when trying to save an updated excel 2007 worksheet.
This worksheet as well as all other is saved in compatibility mode.

This occurs only with this particular sheet all other are working fine.

It started yesterday after updating the worksheet with new info.
I got the message "Microsoft Excel has encountered a problem and needs to be closed".
"Send error report"etc... I lost 2 hours of work.

I have downloaded the same very sheet from my company's Intranet (uploaded by myself a few days ago), and the error remained.

The weird thing is that this worksheet was working just fine until yesterday and all other excel docs are working just fine.
I have tried in safe mode doesn't work either.

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

I have an Excel 2007 worksheet (main worksheet) that has many columns (15) and rows (800). One column has five different sets of initials. I need to some how figure out a way where I can take that one "Initials" column and then extract three others columns data into five new worksheets (one for each set of initials). So that I can seperate each initials data into its own worksheet (for only that specific set of initals).

I also need this to auto populate somehow from the main worksheet. I have spent all day trying to figure out a formula for this and I can't seem to make it work. I have figured out how to filter the data but can't seem to get it to auto populate.

What does the record say when you run the 2nd query?

When I run the second query, I get a 0 for the first record (using the info you listed). I added in a few records of my own and got -1. If I'm not mistaken the 0 means False/No and the -1 means True/Yes. So the 0 means that no records match [Test]<>[Calc] and the -1 means that records match [Test]<>[Calc].

Either way please explain more so I can get a better handle on what you are looking for.

A:Solved: Excel-Substitute values from a list of new values

Hi bongiojf, welcome to TSG.

You can do this with a vlookup formula, assuming that the old values are in the leftmost column and that they are sorted alphabetically.

On sheet 3, in column B (or any blank column) use this formula for the first cell and then copy it down the rest of the column:


Change the range $A$1:$B$3 to be the range of data you have on Sheet 1. The number 2 at the end of the formula indicates that the new values are in the second column from the left. If they are not, change the number accordingly. For example, if they are in column D, the value would be 4.

Once you have the new data in your blank column, you can copy the column and paste special/values over the existing data on sheet 3.

Hope that helps.

Good news: Made some progress. In thinking that maybe each value had the textual single-quote forcing it to act like text, or maybe if I find/repaced all the dollar signs and commas that had been imported, I accidentally discovered that each and every value in my imported columns has a following space!

Bad news: Seems like Excel has a bug that thinks that if I say "Find=[singleSpace]" "Replace=[null]", then I should be given an error saying "Excel cannot find any data to replace". I think I'm doing the find/replace correctly because it worked on the dollar signs and commas.

Anybody know a workaround for the bug?

I have 2 price lists from different years. I have copied and pasted the p/n's and costs from both so there is 1 spreadsheet with 4 columns a,b,c,d. Columns A and C are both p/n's from their respected years and columns b and d are costs for each of those years. I Would like to take these 4 columns and create 3. I want 1 column with all the p/ns so I would need to match and remove duplicates and then I would like to keep both of the b and d columns but have them match up properly to column a once a and c and joined and duplicates removed.

Is this possible, sorry if this is just jumbled together.

This may be a very elementary question. I am not a super sophisticated excel user, but was wondering if there is a way in Excel to compare the formulas (instead of the results) across several worksheets in a workbook. For example, I need to know if the formula in cell A1 on every worksheet is the same.

Optimally, if one does not equal the test formula, I would like to have the tab name returned.

I have the following challenge: I need to compare two excel files and check if certain identification numbers of participants in the one file are also present in the second file. The first file contains the identification numbers of the people who were invited to complete a questionnaire (SampleMapLookUp) and the second file contains the data of the questionnaires that were sent back (SampleFileBase). Is there a way to automate this process? In annex two sample files: SampleMapLookUp is the file with the numbers (name of the column is "ID_IND") that I want to check in the second file: SampleMapBase (name of the column here is "his_1").
I don't know if it was necessary but for testing sake I marked the numbers that should be found in yellow in the SampleMapBase. The resulting file should ideally have the lay-out and content of SampleMapLookUp.

A:Excel - comparing 2 separate worksheets

It's easy to do if the rows and column numbers are the same but once they are throughout the column with the same vale it gets weird. Try a pivot table to do it. I think you are getting into the realm of a database with what you are trying to do. Try a simple databse and import you data into different tables for each spreadsheet and run a query on the two fields that contain the same data.

This particular worksheet, when selected, displays whatever worksheet info I was on before, I get the old egg timer, and often get that the sheet is not responding. As long as I sit there long enough, it eventually displays. The formulas & formatting on this sheet are the same as on 8 or 9 of the others, and I am not having this problem with any other worksheets.

What type of formulas do you have on that particular sheet? Are they referring to other cells on the same sheet, to cells on another sheet, to cells in another workbook...?
Even if it wasn't confidential (which I suspect it is) your workbook would be too large to upload, possibly even if you zipped it.
But unless we can compare the bad sheet with one that behaves normally or have a lot more info, I can't think of a lot to suggest.

I have the following macro:Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim C As Range If Intersect(Target, Me.Range("K:K")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub For Each C In Intersect(Target, Me.Range("K:K")).Cells If C.Text = "Closed" Then Dim otherSheet As WorksheetSet otherSheet = Sheets("Closed")C.EntireRow.Cut Worksheets("Closed").Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Offset(1).EntireRow End If Next End SubThis pastes the row but deletes any information which was is in the 'Closed' worksheet. Any help would be brilliant. Thank you,

My knowledge of VBA is just above nil, but wouldn't it better to Copy then Cut?You might try changing the line that reads:C.EntireRow.Cut Worksheets("Closed").Cells(Rows.Count, To something like:C.EntireRow.Copy Worksheets("Closed").Cells(Rows.Count, See if that works for you.MIKE

A:Return to previous Excel worksheet

Welcome to the board.


No need to select C2:H2 -- Range("C2:H2").Copy will do.

"I could do this by inserting the worksheet name but this would mean having a different macro for each quiz (worksheet)"

So assign the worksheet name to a variable before leaving it. Example:

PrevSheet = ActiveSheet.Name

But you may not need to leave "PrevSheet" in the first place. Try:

x = Sheets("Record").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
Range("C2:H2").Copy Sheets("Record").Range("A" & x + 1)

instead. HTH

All of a sudden my excel worksheets with borders &/or shading will print the first copy with borders/shading. All other copies on multiprint request have no borders &/or shading?? (all text is in it's place) Could my trying out F11 on worksheets to produce charts have caused a problem in the applications files? It is the only thing I can think of I did differently than normal prior to this problem arising.

Hi there

I know that it is very easy to copy and paste an Excel worksheet into a notepad. However, my boss wants me to write a macro in Excel that can do that automatically, since we have staff that is not comfortable in using Excel. I tried to record a macro to get me started but that did not work. Any ideas??

I'm working on a sales journal and need to have the total for a certain set of repeated values. I have over one hundred entries per month. How do I get away from entering cell names and numbers repeatedly. For example, I need to have all the 'gas' totals add up automatically without having to type in all the cell names. See attachment - it's much easier to explain using it.

I would like to collect data out of another worksheet with more than 600 lines; this worksheet is structured like this:

Column A: Name or "not required"
Column B: Sum

I'm OK with the formula which searches through column A and retrieves the sum of all amounts with the same name (=SUMIF) in column B.

What I can't figure out is a way to skip lines with "not required" or where a name has been found before, i.e.

B3: 40.00

should bring up in my new worksheet:




Cheers for any hints!

I would like to create a procedure that imports a CSV file into an excel worksheet. I can see how to do this with a normal text file but I am having trouble with CSV or other objects. I would also like all new imports of the same file to automatically be entered in the first blank cell/row. I am new to VBA and need some help with the code.
