Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help to write a macro for copying the data if the data is matched. Need to crosscheck data from Sheet 1 (Table 1 to 6) with data at “Type” columns at the sheet2. If the first 5 alphabets at Sheet2 is matched with the data sheet1, thus copy all the matched data (Number and Type) of the sheet2 at Matched sheet.  I have attached the sample data at “Matched” sheet for Experts to get better view. Hope Experts will help me to create this feature.

Hi Long,

Thanks for the help. We need to copy the whole data from Type column (Sheet2). For e.g. ATZDI is duped at Sheet 2 4X:

571479      ATZDI01HS11A
571479      ATZDI01HS11B
572599      ATZDI01HS11B
573150      ATZDI01HS11A

All these numbers need to copied Matched sheet. Hope the example gives you better idea.

Hi Long,

Thanks for the solution. Is that possible for me to populate a new data at Matched sheet without overridden the old data? This is allow me to compile all data by running the script multiple times. Hope you will consider this.

Hello Cartillo,

I need some inputs:

(1) Can the number of column in Matched sheet be fixed?  User is never asked for his/her input again when running the code.

(2) Every time you change data of "Sheet 2", you need all previous data in Matched sheet remains and new matched data is appended at the end of Matched sheet?

Regards,

Long

Hi Long,

I’m having big data at sheet 2, same data rows that I have used before. When I run using the revised version, it shows error at this line:

strTmp = Trim(Str(vIn(i, j))) & vIn(i, j + 1)

Hope this can be fixed.

Hello Cartillo,

In regards to the big data set, please send it to me to review.  I guess it may relate to the limitation in rows in Excel 2003.

Hello Cartillo,

Like I guessed, the error happens because the result data contains over 65536 rows.  I have attached the spreadsheet with large data as well as the error produced when running the code for your reference.

Please try to reduce the data and try again.  OR you might need to switch to Excel 2007 to get rid of the limitation in rows.

I hope it helps.

Long

Hi Long,

OK, I will control the data rows since the data at "Matched" sheet can be accumulated. I've noticed the data not exist in Sheet1 but it was copied at "Matched" sheet. By right only the matched data need to be copied. I have attached the sample data "marked in red" for your reference.

Hi Long,

I need your help. I’m using the same solution that you’ve provided me earlier but now need to look at different data.
