I'm using Excel 2007 and am trying to figure out a way to analyze and sort some data.
I have two sets of data in 6 and 5 columns in the same worksheet, each approximately 2000 rows in length. Columns A, B, C, D, E, and F include the following data respectively (Name, Address, City, State, Zip, Phone Number). Columns G, H, I, J and K include the following data respectively (Name, Address, City, State, Zip).
I'm wanting to compare the two Address columns (Column B and Column H). If an address in Column B is not found in Column H, I would like the entire row associated with that particular cell to be output into either a separate sheet or in columns M, N, O, P, Q and R. For example, if there is an address in cell B4 that is not found anywhere in column H, I would like cells A4, B4, C4, D4, E4 and F4 to be displayed in a separate sheet or columns M, N, O, P, Q and R, whichever might be possible or easier.
E.g if data is listed as below:
Name Address City State Zip Phone Number Name Address City State Zip
x asd x x x x x asd x x x
x fgh x x x x x ghk x x x
x wer x x x x x yui x x x
- In M2 type this formula and drag it over the concerned cells.
