Excel is a handy tool for data manipulations and comparison of multiple data sources. When combined with VBA
, Excel becomes an even more powerful tool for automating cumbersome jobs which otherwise may take up a long time for the user. One such example is comparing the values of cells across multiple columns
. Using macro
one can customize the code
to look for specific values in ascending or descending order
across the columns
. Once the criteria specified by the user matches the relevant cells
, the can either be highlighted or deleted as per the need of the user in this office software.
I have two columns A and B
A has items that have been priced
B has item prices (no dollar sign)
Is it possible to have a macro that goes down the column to compare the prices for the same item in column A and delete the lowest price?
What I have:
What I want:
The list is much much longer than this.....
It will delete the duplicate row (when the item and price are the same) and will delete the lower prices...
If ActiveSheet.AutoFilterMode Then
Key1:=Range("a2"), Order1:=xlAscending, _
Key2:=Range("b2"), Order2:=xlDescending, _
Header:=xlYes, OrderCustom:=1, _
MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
lrow = 2
Do While (Cells(lrow, 1) <> "")
If Cells(lrow, 1) = Cells(lrow + 1, 1) Then
Rows(lrow + 1).Delete
lrow = lrow + 1
