    Compare values in two different columns

    Hello,

    I need to compare values in 2 columns within a range of data in two other columns. (Note: first 2 columns must be locked so data in first column is next to the associated value in next column. This also applies to the 2 columns I am compare it to - Column A & B locked with each other as well as D & E locked with each other).

    Desired outcome: Column C (Results) indicates"Missed visit" if values in A&B do not occur in D&E. "Good" if they occur.
    Bonus: "Late" if date in Column E do not occur in same month.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi sunijayanna,

    Try using below formula:-

    =IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A:A,D:E,2,0)=B2),"Missed visit",IF(VLOOKUP(A:A,D:E,2,0)=B2,"Good","Late"))

    see attached:- Excel worksheet.xls

    Thanks DILIPandey! That worked great.

    What part of the formula did it calculate that the visit did not occur in the same month?

    You are welcome suniljayanna,

    IsError is checking if the visit happened or not.

    How would I set parameters if visit is outside a X number of days or in a different month?

    Thanks

    Hi Suniljayanna,

    This is what I was expecting

    I have revised the formula to handle all three cases :-
    Missed visit
    Met as Projected
    Late visit

    See formula in blue if you want to consider month of visit and change that accordingly to suit your requirement
