    Comparing Data Across 2 sheets

    Hello,

    I have a small project im working on and require some help seeing i know nothing about VBA. I have spreadsheet with document numbers and versions. I have to make sure every day before i use them that they are the correct versions. I import listings on the documents to the second sheet that has the correct versions each day. How can i make a search button that checks the second sheets and lets me know maybe by coloring the document title red or green if my versions on sheet 1 are good or bad. Attached a small example

    So I have document 1 and its version is A and i need to check sheet 2. If document 1 on sheet 2 is a different version then that document description on sheet 1 needs to be flagged.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You don't need VBA just use A conditional format in A4 on sheet1 with the 'Use a Formula ' option

    First create a dynamic range name for your version log on sheet 2. The name is 'VersionLog' and defined as
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Now the CF in B4 on sheet 1 is
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    and apply it to $A$4:$C$n
    where n is the last row.

    Hi,

    You'd also changed a sheet name without adjusting the dynamic range name.

    See attached
