    2 Cells Of Excel Having Same Value Is Not Matching With Each Other

    Happy Morning Respected Sir/Mam,

    I am facing an issue where I have 2 columns in which many cells have same value to next column but it excel match functions or exact function didn't work.

    I have tried using (Trim, Clean, Removing spaces and hidden characters) but it is still not working for me. I have data in Column A as well as in Column B. I also applied =a2=b2 but didn't work again.

    Will you please guide me.

    You can test using following.

    In C2: =MID($A$2,COLUMN(A1),1)
    Copy across till Column BD.

    In C3: =MID($B$2,COLUMN(A1),1)
    Copy across till Column BD.

    In C4: =C2=C3
    Copy across till Column BD.

    You'll see that some characters are not exact match.
    Specifically, 'і' and 'i'. First one is Unicode 1110 (CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER BYELORUSSIAN-UKRAINIAN I), latter is standard small case I (Unicode 105).

    Oh, to make A & B to be equal, you can use SUBSTITUTE function.

    Ex:
    =SUBSTITUTE(A2,UNICHAR(1110),CHAR(105))=SUBSTITUTE(B2,UNICHAR(1110),CHAR(105))

    However this only works with Office 365. In your case replace UNICHAR(1110) with actual character.

    Ex:
    =SUBSTITUTE(A2,"і",CHAR(105))=SUBSTITUTE(B2,"і",CHAR(105))

    Hello Sir,

    Thank you so much for providing solution to this request. I appreciate your valuable time and efforts.

    Will you please let me know the process as well that how you detect that where was the problem? Like in this case the problem was with the letter "і".

    How can I identify or test that in which letter or word the problem exists due to that the values does not match?

    I am giving below 1 more example which is not matching, there could be many more cases, I just wanted to know that how can I test or detect the problem.

    - - - - - твердi,*в iншiй упаковцi; рiдкi

    - - - - - твердi, в iншій упаковці; рiдкi

    These 2 values are not matching.

    Just follow similar steps to what I did in post#2. It's method to compare character one by one.

    But at quick glance, two strings are not equal. As first one has "*" but second one doesn't.
