If you can put the three spreadsheets in the same workbook and send me that single file I will do my best to help you with it
Couldn't you put them in a single file. Working with formulas between different files will be hard to set up on one system and make it work and diagnose on another system that has different folder structure
Ok so you want 2 new lists extracted from this data.
One showing the emails of those that are in the 2009 list but are not in the 2011 list
One showing the emails of those that are in the 2010 list but are not in the 2011 list
Yes I will send you both the formulas which you will be able to use on other lists, and the result of these lists. Will have them ready in 15 to 20 min...
Ok here you go
The formulas are on the first sheet in the yellow cells. Then the contents of these cells was transferred to a new sheet called 'Final' which you can use to copy the lists from in case you want to copy them to other files or documents
Hope this is ok. Please spot check the lists to make sure the understanding is correct.
Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for clicking Accept if you are satisfied with the solution
Did you get the file?
Ok what that formula in that particular cell does is the following:
- it reads the email in the corresponding cell in column A, i.e. cell A3.
- it then looks for that email in the list C2:C1556.
- if it finds a match, it will return a blank (or nothing).
- if it does not find a match, it will display the email that is in A3
Hope this makes it clear
You're welcome. Glad I could help :)
Yes you are right. The formulas in F should compare column B and C, not A. Sorry about that
Here is the corrected file
Please check it and let me know if it needs anything else
If I understand you correctly, that would require two more columns with formulas and each formula would have two conditions to check
First column would take A2 and look for a match in col B. If found then look for a match of A2 in col C. If not found in C then return the value of A2
Same will apply to the next column, but instead of taking A2 it would take B2
If so I am afraid this is a much more complicated set of conditions and I think you should consider this as a new question (but you can still post it on this page if you like)
No you do not need to do anything now. I will be posting the file here in a couple of hours. You will have the chance to accept the answer if you are satisfied with the solution
The new formulas are in the 3 green columns. The last column (i.e. column J) is the combined result
Hope this is ok. Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for clicking Accept if you are satisfied with the solution
No problem I will take care of that now. Is the rest of the list ok?
Cannot see that person's email. It came through like this
Please send it again after replacing the "@" sign with the word " AT " with spaces
I added a new column which takes care of and removes all repetitions and shows only the final unique list. This would be your final column, hence columns H, I and J can be kept hidden
Please check it and let me know if it still needs any tweaking
Awesome. Glad it worked for you. Thanks so much
