Hello all,

I need to be able to compare 2 MSHFlexgrid.  MSHFlexgrid1 and MSHFlexgrid2.

In the picture bellow, MSHFlexgrid1 at the top and MSHFlexgrid2 under.

I need to see if column 0 text and Column 1 text and Column 6 from the same row, is showing in  MSHFlexgrid2 column 0 .text and Column 2 .text and Column 5.

If there is no match, then it will put in column 14 of the same row "NEEDS TO BE REMOVED".

How can i do this please?

Thanks

This is an easy one...

Dim r1 As Long, r2 As Long
Dim test1 As String, test2 As String, test3 As String

For r1 = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows -1
   test1 = MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(r1, 0)
   test2 = MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(r1, 1)
   test3 = MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(r1, 6)
   For r2 = 1 To MSHFlexGrid2.Rows - 1
      If test1 = MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(r2, 0) Then
         If test2 = MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(r2, 2) Then
            If test3 = MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(r2, 5) Then
               MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(r1, 14) = "NEEDS TO BE REMOVED"
               Exit For
            End If
         End If
      End If
   Next r2
Next r1

I just noticed something. Your textual explanation of what you need to do doesn't match your picture. You say grid1 column 1 needs to be compared with grid2 column 2, but your picture's arrow is pointing from column 1 to column 1.

If the picture is the correct way you want to compare, change this line:

If test2 = MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(r2, 2) Then

to

If test2 = MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(r2, 1) Then

Wilder...looking back to your previous question, I showed you how to add a formula to the importing worksheet....
Example:
dim sFormula as string
sFormula = "=IF(RC[" & C1 & "]=R[-1]C[" & C1 & "],IF(RC[" & C2 & "]=R[-1]C[" & C2 & "],IF(RC[" & C3 & "]=R[-1]C[" & C3 & "],1,0),0),0)"
This was to create an ending column and set the value 1 when the previous row was a duplicate...

In the same context...

dim sLookUp as string
dim sDOC as string ' THE PATH AND NAME OF YOUR 2ND EXCEL
sDOC = "'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\[kewl.xls]Sheet1'"

For i = 2 To NoOfRows
   sLookUp = "=IF(VLOOKUP(RC[-9]," & sDOC & "!R[-" & i-1 & "]C[-9]:R[" & NoOfRows - i & "]C[-9],1,FALSE)<>""""," & _
             "=IF(VLOOKUP(RC[-7]," & sDOC & "!R[-" & i-1 & "]C[-7]:R[" & NoOfRows - i & "]C[-7],1,FALSE)<>""""," & _
             "=IF(VLOOKUP(RC[-3]," & sDOC & "!R[-" & i-1 & "]C[-3]:R[" & NoOfRows - i & "]C[-3],1,FALSE)<>"""",""REMOVE"",""""),""""),"""")"
   xlWB.Worksheets(1).Cells(i, 14).FormulaR1C1 = sLookUp
End if

VB Classic has a very good solution but based on the size of Grid1 and Grid2, that could take a very long time to run...

oh...by the way....knowing that your excel sheets come from external sources...
you will have to tweek the RC values to the Columns you want to compare against...
These values represent my sample that we talked about before where -9 is ( columns to the left of where the REMOVE should go...
In your case these values should be... -14, -13 and -8 for the look up and -14,-13 and -9 on the 2nd sheet
sLookUp = "=IF(VLOOKUP(RC[-14]," & sDOC & "!R[-" & i-1 & "]C[-14]:R[" & NoOfRows - i & "]C[-14],1,FALSE)<>""""," & _
          "=IF(VLOOKUP(RC[-13]," & sDOC & "!R[-" & i-1 & "]C[-13]:R[" & NoOfRows - i & "]C[-13],1,FALSE)<>""""," & _
          "=IF(VLOOKUP(RC[-8]," & sDOC & "!R[-" & i-1 & "]C[-9]:R[" & NoOfRows - i & "]C[-9],1,FALSE)<>"""",""REMOVE"",""""),""""),"""")"
