    Talking Create Columns Comparing differences in Other Columns

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm trying to get ahead in my fantasy football league this year and need your help!

    I'd like to find the difference between players in two fantasy football ranking lists so I can easily see how differently one player is ranked in one list or another. See attached for what i'm looking for - in columns I thru L. I put the info in manually, but hoping someone can help me with a formula that would create that info.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Hi there,

    It's not going to be easy to do this while your data are in their current format!

    The "space" character you're using between the names in Column B is not the same as the "space" character you're using in Column E. They both look the same on the screen but if you insert the following formula (Antonio Brown) in any cell:

    the result will be FALSE. If you delete the Space character in Cell B3 and retype it as a "normal" space (i.e. using the SpaceBar) the formula will evaluate to TRUE.

    I've checked the above situation for a few player names and all of them seem to show the same problem.

    If you can ensure that the space characters used in Columns B and E are consistent, there might be some chance of achieving what you want using LOOKUP and MATCH formulas.

    Hope this helps - please let me know how you get on.
