Hello,

I am trying to match the requests processed by the bank with the requests sent to the bank for processing. The bank could process part of the refund requests that were sent yesterday and part from days before. I have all the information in the same spreadsheet. The first few columns are for what we receive from the bank and the next few columns are for what we send to the bank. I am looking for a way to have matching records on the same rows and push the ones that do not match to the bottom of the list. The merchant #, card # and amount have to match. Any advice is highly appreciated.

in my opinion, most efficient and simple way would be have two additional columns where merchant, account and amount are combined (one for "from bank" and one "to bank"). then you can use match formula and match the value

Thank you for your response.

Both sets of data are not in any particular order. I want them matched so that each matching items for "sent to bank" and "processed by bank" are on the same row ( so I can clearly see they match). I also want the unmatched items t be pushed down to the bottom of the list so they can carried forward to the next day. Please advise.

Thanks,

If you use the option i mentioned, you would then use MATCH formula. Any place there is no match, you would have seen #N/A. Filtering those would give you information you seek

Hi,
Thank you for the clarification. Yes "Match" does work well. I am just wondering could we have a macro to sort the results of the match formula in ascending order? This would enable me to have the matching item for "processed by bank" on the same row as the item in "Sent to Bank". Please advise.


Processed by bank Column Sent to Bank Column
A - Merchant M - Merchant
D - Card # O - Card #
E - Card Type N - Card Type
G - Amount T - Amount

Formula in Column AD =A2&D2&E2&G2 (to combine merchant. card, type and amount for "Processed by Bank")

Formula in Column AE ="200-0"&IF(LEFT(M2,3)="OMS",MID(M2,4,8),MID(M2,3,8))&O2&N2&-T2 ( (to combine merchant. card, type and amount for "Sent to Bank")

The results of MATCH formula are in Column AF

Please advise. Thanks in advance for all the help. Appreciate it!
