Q: Solved: How to use this Macro in MS Excel (compare excel worksheets)

Hi guys,

I have been on the lookout for a macro that will compare 2 worksheets within MS Excel and output the differences on a third sheet.

I am being directed to the URL below but cannot for the life of me work out how to implement this:

http://exceltip.com/st/Compare_two_worksheets_using_VBA_in_Microsoft_Excel/477.html

There are two snippets of code which I will include here for convenience but not sure whether these should be pasted into Workbook Code (i.e. right-clicking Excel icon left of "File" - top-left), Worksheet Code (i.e. right-clicking worksheet tab) or inserting a new Module - or some other method. Is there anyone here that could guide me to how to implement this code?

Quote from webpage - "With the macro below it is possible to compare the content of two worksheets.
The result is displayed in a new workbook listing all cell differences. "

Code:
Sub CompareWorksheets(ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet)
Dim r As Long, c As Integer
Dim lr1 As Long, lr2 As Long, lc1 As Integer, lc2 As Integer
Dim maxR As Long, maxC As Integer, cf1 As String, cf2 As String
Dim rptWB As Workbook, DiffCount As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.StatusBar = "Creating the report..."
While Worksheets.Count > 1
Worksheets(2).Delete
Wend
With ws1.UsedRange
lr1 = .Rows.Count
lc1 = .Columns.Count
End With
With ws2.UsedRange
lr2 = .Rows.Count
lc2 = .Columns.Count
End With
maxR = lr1
maxC = lc1
If maxR < lr2 Then maxR = lr2
If maxC < lc2 Then maxC = lc2
DiffCount = 0
For c = 1 To maxC
Application.StatusBar = "Comparing cells " & Format(c / maxC, "0 %") & "..."
For r = 1 To maxR
cf1 = ""
cf2 = ""
On Error Resume Next
cf1 = ws1.Cells(r, c).FormulaLocal
cf2 = ws2.Cells(r, c).FormulaLocal
On Error GoTo 0
If cf1 <> cf2 Then
DiffCount = DiffCount + 1
Cells(r, c).Formula = "'" & cf1 & " <> " & cf2
End If
Next r
Next c
Application.StatusBar = "Formatting the report..."
With Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(maxR, maxC))
.Interior.ColorIndex = 19

.LineStyle = xlContinuous
.Weight = xlHairline
End With
With .Borders(xlInsideVertical)

Columns("A:IV").ColumnWidth = 20

OK. I know this may have been covered in another post but here is what I've got. I generated two reports from my system that have results for year 2010 and YTD 2011. The columns are all the same. I want to combine the two worksheets to show comparison between the two years. The two criteria to break down the results are Name and Product. There will be many of these that are common between the two worksheets so I just want to combine those and show the 2010 to 2011 comparison. And I want any unique Name/Products listed also where there might only be that Name/Product in either only 2010 or 2011. I have attached a sample. Thanks in advance for any help!

This is pretty easy. All you need to do is copy the data from 1 sheet to another and make a pivot table on the data. You can probably use the wizard to figure out how to set up the table up to display what you are after... but if you need help, do a simple google search to understand pivot tables better....

I'm in a bit of a pickle.

I have an excel document with a summary page ("Tracker"). This worksheet has a table in it with a whole heap of customer information, and at the end there are columns for revenue summaries.

Every month I run a report that I add in a new worksheet which is called "[Relevant Month] Revenue Report", and then I do a vlookup to transfer the revenue and product information in columns "C" and "D" of the report into the relevant month columns in the "Tracker". This has been working well for me, but i'll be handing this role over soon so I was wondering if there was a macro that I could use that would do this vlookup automatically for the relevant month?

The information in the reports is not in any particular order so i can't do a simple copy/paste into my "Tracker" summary.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hello,

I'm trying to do some statistical work and i need to compare some values that i will explain in the next rows:

I have let's say this 6 numbers, and a table with 200 rows x 6 columns, each cell containing a byte value.
1 2 3 4 5 6

I need to know if any minimum 3 of my six numbers match one row, so basically there are 200 compare operations to do.

So, for this example we have in left nr for compare, midle - the results and on right the nr to compare with
---------------- Result
1 2 3 4 5 6------1 1 1 1-----1 2 3 4 5 7
1 2 3 9 10 15---------1-----2 3 5 6 7 8
----------------------------1 2 3 4 5 6
----------------------------4 5 6 7 8 9. The first result is 1 for 6 nr, 1 for 5 nr, 1 for 4 nr and 1 for 3 nr, and the second result is 1 for 3 nr.

I hope you will understand my request

Edit:

Here is a Borland Pascal code for what i need. Hope it will be useful.

repeat
for i:=1 to 6 do
repeat
Assign (g,'var.txt'); reset (g);
for i:=1 to 6 do

Hi all,

the title of the post only gives part of the story.

What I'm looking for is a VBA script to attach to a button. When the user clicks the button I need each of the worksheets within the workbook to be checked for an entry (say in cell A8), and to only print the ones that have a value (the value will be different on each sheet, so another way to look at it is a check that does not print worksheets with no value in that cell).

For example: The workbook has 5 worksheets to check (A, B, C, D and E). A8 is completed on sheet A, D and E. When the user clicks the button, sheets A, D and E are the only ones that should print.

Hope I have been clear enough with what I need!

Hello, would you please assist me in solving this problem: I have an Excel object (Excel.Sheet.1) in MS Word document. I'm trying to write a Visual Basic macro for MS Word to change the data in cell A1 of this table. How can I access the cell? I can only activate the table for example like this: ActiveDocument.Fields(1).OLEFormat.Activate - this leads to the same result as double clicking on the table object...

I know how to access MS Word tables, but the problem here is that I have to work with an Excel table.. I suppose only an Excel macro can access it and modify it... And if I write an excel macro to do so, how can I call it from my MS word macro script? Does solving of this problem involve OLE, DDE...? Maybe I should run the Excel application to modify the table and then close it.. so far I have no success in doing that.. this has to be implemented in a single MS word macro.

Hi,

Hopefully one of you delightful people can help me with a small problem I'm having pulling together data from multiple reports... I have manually combined 4 separate reports into 1 workbook with 4 worksheets (1 for each report). Each row represents a separate job.

The 1st worksheet is an export from our own Access database, the 3 others come from external reports.

Whilst each report/worksheet contains different sets of data, 1 column in each worksheet contains &#8216;CSR&#8217; or &#8216;Site ID&#8217; numbers. These numbers can be used to match the jobs - however a) not every worksheet has every number b) some numbers may appear more than once on the same worksheet (these are essentially returns to the same job).

The 1st worksheet also has a column with OPID numbers (Column A), these are unique numbers that we have paired to a CSR or Site ID number.

I want to compare the numbers in the CSR column of the 1st worksheet (Column B of Sheet 1) with the CSR columns in the other worksheets and where there is a match, copy/add the corresponding OPID number to a blank column in each worksheet.

What would be the best way to do this?

Hi All,

What I'm trying to do is type lists in Excel (using the 2007 version) so that an amount can be summed in separate worksheets and then the list to be consolidated into another worksheet so all the items can be seen at a glance.

I would also like to make it so that when the data changes in one worksheet, the consolidated view updates accordingly.

An example would be for say a shopping list where the items are broken down into their respective storage areas. So there would be a worksheet for Fridge, Freezer, Top Cupboard, Bottom Cupboard etc.

Each of these would contain a number in Column A and then the name of the item in Column B, with each item having its own row.
E.g. 5 Apples, followed by 6 Oranges on the next row.
There would also be a =SUM function on each worksheet to total the items on that sheet.

Once all the data was entered on the separate sheets the consolidated data would appear in the format below (commas separate column data):

Name of Place (Fridge)
Data E.g. 3, 6pts of Milk
10, Eggs
//1 Blank Row
Name of next place (Freezer)
Data E.g. 3, Packs of Bread
//1 Blank Row
Name of next place etc.

Hopefully this consolidated view would also update so that if for instance "1, Butter" was added under "10, Eggs" then the "1, Butter" would not go into the blank row but would add itself above the blank row on its own new row.

I have an Excel program that starts at worksheet A, then depending on the users' responses could navigate to B, then C, then D or could go from A to D to B, etc.

I would like code that would navigate to previous sheets in the order in which they were activated by users. For example, if the user navigates A -> C -> D -> B, I would like code that could take the user back from B -> D -> C -> A.

The number of movements from sheet to sheet forward and backward could be quite large so I'm thinking that I need code that stores the sheet names in the order in which they were activated, then calls on them in reverse order.

Hi,

There is probably a really simple solution to this....but let me first define the problem..

I work in a maintanence tracking department. Every week I am given an excel spreadsheet with hundreds of jobs, each with a unique identification number arranged in columns. during that week as work is done I can generate another excel spreadsheet with all the job numbers that have been completed and I have to sort through the first list and tick them off as 'done'. I usually use the 'find' tool in Excel - but I am only able to find one number at a time.

Ideally I would like to be able to copy and paste a whole list of numbers into 'find' and get Excel to highlight all those jobs that have been completed.

Is this possible - do I need a macro? Help - cos it is taking up valuable hours of my life!!

The twist is that the current years working file may not have all the rows that are in the previous years file and may also have new ones. The rows represent accounts. An account that is paid to zero during the current year will not be in the current years report. A new account will appear in the the current years file, but not the previous years file.

I need a result that shows the change in the account balance even if the current year doesn't have a row representing an account paid to zero. So the result shows all of the accounts that appear in both reports as though both reports had been consolidated and then shows the change in value of the account balance, either positive or negative, as compared to the previous year.

I've attached a file that uses worksheets (named 2010, 2011 and Delta) as an example. Note accounts #2, #4 and #5 paid to zero and do not appear in "2011", yet appear in "Delta" with a negative number representing the reduction in balance between "2010" and "2011".

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide . . .

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I need to extract data from multiple excel files into a new excel file and sum the values. The data comes from excel files that are made from a template so the data is always in the same place or same cells. For example, i have data saved daily in excel files with the following naming convention 080204, 080304, 080404,..... and so on. What i would like to do is have a macro that will create a week ending sheet by importing and summing the data from that week.

Hello,

I need help to create an Excel macro that would

1. ask users to select x number of rows to be copied from one worksheet of one Excel file
2. once users have selected the rows to be copied, then the rows are copied from the one original Excel file into X number of target Excel files

Notes:
the target Excel files are all based on the same template
there is one worksheet in each of the target Excel files

in the target files, the rows should be copied from the first available empty row, going down

Thanks a lot.

The macro runs fine and does as I want it to.

Once the macro has run, and I go to edit a cell and hit "F2" excel crashes. This only seems to happen in certain cells and not all of the time.

Does anyone have experience with similar questions?

Excel '07 won't open an "excel 4.0" macro (i.e. *.xlm file). I am one of a few users at work using excel 2007, I believe this file was made with excel 2000 or similar. When I had excel 2000 it opened fine, it's a common file on the network that everyone should be able to access, and everyone with excel 2000 can easily. So I know it's not the file. When I try and open it with excel 2007 I get that stupid error about the file being different to the extension.

I've tried registry edits and workarounds after scowering the net but nothing seems to fix it. All it does is display the error, then opens excel in the background without even a new worksheet. Excel isn't hanging, it just does nothing. Any ideas?

A:excel 2007 won't open excel 4.0 macro

XLM was long ago replaced by VBA (with Excel 5 in 1993) and MS no longer really supports it (although I think they claim that they do, kinda, sorta.) So the only thing you can do, I think, is to make a copy of the xlm file and convert the xlm code in the copied file to VBA. Fortunately, I found a link that tells you how to do that:
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/excel/archive/2010/02/16/migrating-excel-4-macros-to-vba.aspx
(Look at the link at the bottom, too. But you will need to download that to an older PC, possibly.)
Now, assuming all goes well, this will give you two versions of the same file, but if everyone else has Excel 2000 (or later) then they will all be able to use the new VBA-based file, so you won't end up with two files that would lead to confusion.
Still, it looks to be a lot of work, so good luck!

On a final note, if you need this file done in VBA and you can't figure out how to redo it, make a post describing your needs - there are some amazing VBA coders on here.

Hi, everyone!
I have monthly worksheets, with a client and billable hours matrix. (no more than 20 clients, about 40 billing functions).
It was my bright idea to have a cumulative client history page, which totals up the hours per client.
But it's only April and my formula is HUGE! It covers up half of the cumulative history worksheet.
Am I doing this the right way?
E.g.,
I start with the cell that has Smith/Record Review, and I go:
= sum (then I click the total box for January's sheet, then February's sheet, then March's sheet, then April's sheet), and it ends up with a huge formula like 'C:My Documents\ImportantBillings\JanuaryBillings.xls then some exclamation marks, etc. And, I think I also have to change to absolute references.
It's a lot of work. I dread getting to May. Is there any easier way?

A:Excel - Multiple Worksheets

Hmmm...

Suppose you have sheets:

January
February
March
April
Summary

All worksheets are exactly the same, except the values. So, for instance, cell b5 in January may have the amount that Acme Explosives paid for fur replacement. They also paid for some of this in February, and this is in b5 of February's sheet. Now, Acme Boulders is listed in b6 of each sheet. On the summary sheet, you want to show (for now) January through April totals these guys, as well as many other expense columns and companies...

For our purpose, though, you'll type in cell b5 of the summary sheet:

=SUM(January:April!b5)
Okay. So, you fill April's up, make a new sheet for May. You go to your Summary sheet, and you hit Find/Replace.

You'll make sure it's looking in *formulas*, and then put January:April in the find what box and January:May in the replace with box. Replace all.
