    Need formula or Macro to help find differences between two tables of data

    Hi, I am new to excel and new to this forum, so I am really sorry if this is a really basic thing to figure out.

    I have two sets of data each containing 3 columns,1. Docket Number,2. A weight 3. price

    I need to look at each set of data and am only looking to extract out differences between the two sets. Thus give a difference report?

    I am not bothered if it is made to a new sheet but that would be great.

    I have included a copy of the data sets.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you for your time and brain power in advance.

    Clare

    Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    In Sheet2 D2 enter
    Formula: copy to clipboard
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.

    copy it down and then use autofilter to find the #N/A values which identify which docket numbers are not present on Sheet1. There are two as it happens on rows 23 & 63

    Do the same on Sheet1 but change the reference in the formula to Sheet2. There's one on row 152.

    Re: Need formula or Macro to help find differences between two tables of data

    Hi Richard, thank you very much, that has helped me find just the docket variances, but I need it to look at the docket numbers as well as their associated weight and price to ensure the docket number and its weight and the price is the same for each data set. I hope that is easier to understand.

    eg Sheet 1
    docket
    2358878 volume 13.4 $32.68

    i need it to check that on sheet2 that if the docket is present that it ...
    docket
    2358878 is the same volume 13.4 and price $32.68

    and if a docket is missing or listed as an extra on either sheet that it lets me know!

    I hope that explains it a bit more clearly, very hard to write down how you want it without knowing how excel works!!

    Thank you

    In that case just create a helper column D in each sheet and in D2 copied down enter

    Now in E2 use the similar formula s before. i.e.
