Comparing lists in excel?

Q: Comparing lists in excel?

Hi, I have 2 lists of numbers in excel, both lists are about 40000 long each. I need to see how many records match and see what ones are unmatched?

Does anyone know of an easy way to do this? Have tried 'IF' but could only make it check individual cells rather than the whole list?

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.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Guys,

I have an Excel 2007 Workbook with two Sheets.

Sheet1 is Info pulled from a SQL DB Table. It shows Residential and Postal codes for suburbs. Both residential and postal codes appear in one column.

Sheet2 is info pulled from the Post Office Website. It shows Residential and postal codes. However, it displays them in two seperate columns.

Therefore, Sheet1
Suburb City code
---------- ------ -------

Sheet2 :
Suburb City Residentialcode postal
---------- ----- ----------------------- ---------
I need to compare these data as the data from the SQL DB(Sheet1) may be outdated. Sheet2 is from the post office as

Is there anyway to compare them?

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.

Thanks for any advice,

I have a spreadsheet that I wish to compare 2 columns and bring the information from the 3rd. For example, if A6 is equal to an item in G1:G98, then the number in B6 should equal the corresponding number in H1:h98. The formula I used is =VLOOKUP(A8,$G$1:$H$98,2,FALSE) It works great except the problem I have is sometimes there is no corresponding value in G1:G98. In that case I would like it to enter the number 0.

I need to compare 2 different Excel spreadsheets (each spreadsheet has at least one column of data which is the same) When I get a match I want to be able to then say if a match occurs then show the data from another cell. The main priority is how to compare the 2 spreadsheets. I think it is something to do with VLOOKUP but I am a complete novice so please help if you can.

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.

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

Using Excel in XP, is there a way to paste additional columns into an autofiltered list without filling in the hidden rows that are not part of the selected list? I am trying to combine two spreadsheets, and need to paste a ton of data into one spreadsheet.

I hope that this is clear enough to convey what I need to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



A:Problems Pasting Additional Columns Into Autofiltered Lists in Excel

You cannot insert a column with the autofilter showing only selected data. Just set the filter(s) to All and then you can insert the columns, then you can reset the filters. You can, however, paste a column in with the filter on - just copy the data and then put the cursor in the top cell of the column you want to paste into - it will be filtered also.

I have some sensitive material on my computer which I would not like others to see. So, I'd like to know how to exclude some folders and files from lists like recent items, jump lists, etc. Is it possible?

A:How to exclude files and folders from "Recent" lists and jump lists

Welcome to Seven Forums Stawan. It's possible to turn off the recent items in the jumplists of specific programs. But it's a laborious process. I will describe it, but you'll have to do the legwork.

The Jump lists for each program are stored in

C:\Users\(User name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations

as automaticDestination-ms files with random names.

To figure out which file belongs to which program , you'll have to do some detective work.

For instance, you could open a video with your media player program.

Change the AutomaticDestinations folder into Detail view and Sort by Date Modified.

Only one or two of the files should be showing as modified in the past minute. One may be a list of recently viewed folders, the other should be your program.

Delete one of the files then try to open your program's jump list. If it is gone, you have the right file.

Once you have identified the right file, restore it from recycle bin and set the file properties to Read-only. This will disable the jump list for that file. You'll need to do this for all the programs you want to exclude from jump lists.

As you can see, this would be a long and lengthy process, you'd be better off creating a password protected user. Good luck. A Guy

In a word, no.

The 1.8 gig processor would be a 3000+ If you went with something like a 3500 or greater, then you might notice an improvement. It would depend on what you were doing; encoding video, playing a game, etc. For video encoding, you would probably notice a decrease in performance; for games probably no change.

In short it is not worth the change.

Hello all,

What I want to do is compare 40 labels (label.text) to each other and see if any one of those is the same as any other of the 40. (the 40 labels had a random number generated in each so I want to make sure none of the labels is the same as the other from the group of 40)

I could do If label1.text = label2.text or label3.text or label4.text .... etc etc but as you can see this would end up as a huge pile of probably unnecessary code, so if anyone has any suggestions on how to handle this I would be pleased to know

Please humor an old man and give me your thoughts on this question.

Comparing two cameras:

Nikon D90: This is a 12-megapixel (native, not interpolated resolution) camera. Primary purpose is to convert about fifteen thousand personal family photos from 35mm slides to digital. After that project is finished, I will probably sell it.

Panasonic HDC-TM700K Camcorder: This is the camera I would use most and keep.

According to a reply from Panasonic, HDC-TM700K Camcorder is capable of 12-megapixel native resolution for still images (not interpolated).

Since the purchase of the D90 is for converting 35mm slides to digital and the Panasonic camcorder has the same resolution for still pictures, why should I not just get only the camcorder for the job and save dollars?

However there actually is quite a bit out there that benefits from dual cores so the dual core would be a better choice in that respect. Personally i would save up a bit more for an intel core 2 duo.

Hi all,

There are many types of CPUs, like Pentiume, Atom, core 2 duo, core iX (X = 3,5, ....), But I always don't look at them this way! I always look at their speed which in GHZ unit and then compare them with each other.
For example when some CPU is in type of 'X' with 2 GHZ of speed and another one is in type of 'Y' with 2.2 GHZ of speed, I say the second one ('Y') has better speed and also better performance.

Is it a correct think?


A:Comparing CPUs

You can take a core 2 duo at 3ghz and the newest core i3 at and make the speed of the i3 to 2ghz and they might have about the same performance. so no ghz doesnt really matter when comparing them with each other like you are. there are so many different factors to consider like what generation the cpu is. if you dont want to do all the leg work of researching you can use this website to help you out.,6.html

Hi I am new to the forum and haven t found an answer to my problem In essence I am trying to quickly compare generated excel spreadsheet reports to audit The same comparing 2 spreadsheets help headers are in both spreadsheets and there is generic data for both such as date and time a turn around time and general id number associated I am trying to help comparing 2 spreadsheets find out if there is a way to get excel to match up the data by id listed as accession number Quickly looking at my data some of the generated reports have the same id number but then there are a lot that don t I am interested in looking at the differences in the time for the different accession numbers between the sets of data I am attaching a part of the spreadsheet since it is rows to hopefully help anyone willing to give input on this thanks The other confounding issue is that in my large spreadsheet in the rows there is sometimes data that won t correspond correctly For example in column A in general i m most interested in help comparing 2 spreadsheets number values to sort help comparing 2 spreadsheets by but there will occassionally be a person s name to break up the different workers nbsp

Dear sir,
             I am doing data entry job and i do not have another source currently for money. I need a OCR software which convert old scanned text jpeg file into MS word 2003 with minimum error. And another thing is that for comparison i need a software like it should possesses following features.
(1) It can split into two window. In window first there will be scanned jpeg file and another window converted MS word file.
(2) This software will help to find out spelling mistakes with highlighting wrong spelling word.
(3) Another thing is that both file get synchronous with scrolling feature. When i scrolled down or up in jpeg file then accordingly scrolled down or up in MS word file.
Please suggest me correct software. These software belongs to me so importantly.

No, go for the 3870.

Actually, you may even be able to crossfire those and run the x1650 as physics, but i can't seem to find documentation on that anywhere.

I saw an article on the Screensavers website about comparing webcams, but I can not find it anymore. I was wondering what I should be looking at when I am comparing webcams.

A:Comparing webcams

From my experience, even a cheap webcam can work well. The most important factor when working with a web-cam is the lighting that your useing. Florescent lighting seems to work the best, but not many people have a florescent bulb over thier desktop. If you don't have decent lighting, don't even bother with the cam until you do.

P.S. I give very high marks to the Aiptek 1.3mp webcam/camera which can be had for around $60. High resolution and good pictures, plus can be used as a stand alone still image camera. lighting is the important issue though.

Most songs that are being shared through programs like napster have 128 kbps bitrate. I find that the sound quality of a 192 kbps song is significantly better and the file isn't much better. So why does everybody use 128 kbps! That really ticks me off.
Also, does anyone know the bitrate of any song of a cd?
Is it true that WMA encrypted songs are much better quality to file size then mp3's?

A:Comparing Bitrate. . .oh why, oh why

Because most people do not have software that will only encode at 160k max an I bet even most of the rest never check their settigs. So what are you complaining about, it's free

Hi, I am planning on buying a motherboard bundle but it gives me the choice to choose either Z68AP-D3 or a GA-Z68XP-UD4. Since the GA is about £50 more expensive I would assume it's better but just what exactly makes a better motherboard? How is the second mobo better than the first one?

Any help appreciated,

EDIT: I just found the exact same bundle on another site except the CPU isn't overclocked and it has a GA-Z77-D3H motherboard. All motherboards I have mentioned in this post are gigabyte boards. How does this board compare to the other two?

A:What do I look for when comparing two motherboards?

Comparing features are not as important as getting the features you need or want.

One of the biggest questions is what graphics are you going to run?

On-board or single graphics card solution
Multiple graphics cards (Crossfire or SLI)
Will you need a Micro-ATX motherboard or will a standard ATX motherboard fit your case?
I usually lookup motherboards (among other things) on newegg and compare features side by side.

Hi all I'm building up a price list for a friend and myself. I'm looking at a 5870 for my system but I've got to make it a bit cheapier for his budget so.... I have to decide which GPU to choose. A HD 5830 or a GTS 450? The Motherboard is an AMD chipset but more than likely it is going to be a Micro-ATX board so there's only going to be space for one Graphics card.

Bascially which is better. I've tried finding some graphics card comparison lists to no avail. I found some older one's that list the 5830 in the top 10 or 20 but they didn't have the GTS series at all. So yeah. Help is much appreciated thanks.

I'm planning to build a new gaming PC, and I'm currently doing my research.

Which one of these would be the better choice if I want to play high quality demanding games with great fps, response time, and little lag?

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+


Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz

They are both about the same price, and both may perform similar. Which would any of you hardcore gamers out there suggest?

I'm probably going to go with the Intel Core 2 Duo. If this is the best choice, what then mobo-wise would be good to look at? I do want to get an SLI mobo in case I want to buy a second video card in the future and put it in there.

Graphics card = GeForce 8800GTX (unless other suggestions)

You have to put the motherboard and the video card(s) into the equation here.

Hi everyone,

Right now im looking at 2 different laptops and id appreciate some input on them as to which one I should pick.

The first one is the samsung series 5 ultra touch and the other is the hp envy touchsmart, both these lapotops have basically the same specs (i5, 8gigs ram, touchscreen, $899) but the key difference between the two is that the samsung has a 128 gb SSD and the HP has a 500gb hardrive with a 32gb ssd hydrid. I've always thought the stand alone SSD would be much faster and thats what I care about at this point I can handle the lower amount of storage on the laptop just using a external harddrive.

So what im asking is that opinions on these 2 computers and any tips about this SSD/HDD hybrid drive

Thanks in advance

Lenovo has been releasing a steady stream of Yoga notebooks, both on the consumer and ThinkPad lines. I wrote an article as a sort of guide to the different Yogas. While the article misses some of the most recent additions from the consumer Yoga line, I also created a web app where you can interactively compare the different Yogas. This should have a much larger selection available for comparison. Yoga Comparison web application Feel free to post any comments or observations about these below.

I basically have a linksys router wrt54g (standard w/e)
I am very frustrated because I like to game.. and when my sister uses netflix or youtube, it lags me 200+ ping and makes my connectivity just crap. Or when we both try to do some video streaming at the lowest definition.. connection sucks. So I was just wondering if routers with different specs do make a big difference. I was wondering what kind of router you would recommend that they sell at a reasonable price and is programmed to better fit the needs of video-streaming and game-playing.

For example, Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700 by Netgear
I'm considering this one... however does this support that 10/100/1000 LAN feature? I also wanted to ask if this kind of router would fix my problem?

The problem is not your router, it is what your router is connected to on the internet side.

Advice appreciated, too.

This will be used to run only one or two hard disks in Windows for backing up files and imaging partitions.

One looks like it is a kit with cables, etc. The other is a bare card with just a support cd/dvd.
