    Question How to match Debits and Credits on one column, and then hiding or filtering out

    Hi all and thanks for reading this post! :-)

    I have been searching online for Excel answers and can't seem to find a solution.

    I have about 3000 entries of data, of which, has a few debits and credits to zero them out (i.e., they were reclassed to another account).

    I am trying match the debit and credit entries, and possibly hide them or filter them out of viewing. End goal is to focus on the remaining items, without getting lost seeing all the duplicates.

    Any advice would greatly be appreciated!

    I think you give not the correct sample, no credits no debits in this file.

    Kind regards

    Re: How to match Debits and Credits on one column, and then hiding or filtering out

    Hi Leo,

    Sorry for not being clearer with my file. This is coming from my accounting program, it's noting a lot of additional data that I ended up removing so that we focus on this one column.

    10/26/2018 $(22,752.68)
    10/26/2018 $22,752.68
    10/26/2018 $23,786.56
    10/26/2018 $(3,975.30)
    10/26/2018 $(23,786.56)

    Column B already has all the numbers noted. Within the column though, there's a lot of entries like the below. Overall, I am trying find an easy way to match all the numbers (i.e., -$22,752.68 and $22,752.68, $23,786.56 and -$23,786.56), especially instances when there's 4 or more of the same matching numbers, and then possibly hide or filter them out of view.

    My goal is to ignore these matching numbers, as they are zeroed out and then focus on the remaining items. Starting to read up on vlookup's and if this is a path that will work.

    Approaching 3000+ entries, I'm hoping to find a way to streamline the process.

    Best,

    Eugene

    See if the attached will work for you. I used Power Query which is called Get and Transform in your version of Excel and found on the Data Tab. I split the range into Debits and Credits (changing the credits to all positive numbers.) I then merged the two tables with a left outer join. All data from Debits and those matching values in the credits. I eliminated all duplicate debits.

    Alan - thank you sooooo much for introducing me to Power Query and for showing me how it works with the sample file!

    I just spent some time going over the basic on this and this seems like it'll do the trick.

    I really appreciate your input on this challenge I was facing.

    Thank you, thank you!
