Looking for a macro that I can run that will tell me the number of instances that the number one is in column C and the number of instances that the number one is in column AG.  These should match.  If 6 in column C there should be 6 in column AG.

Ideally a dialog box that shows the results of each would be nice.  Thanks -R-

Here it is try this code

Sub CountCAG()
Dim WS As Worksheet
Dim MaxRow As Long, I As Long
Dim CountC As Long, CountAG As Long

Set WS = ActiveSheet
MaxRow = WS.Range("C" & WS.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

For I = 1 To MaxRow
    If WS.Cells(I, "C").Value = 1 Then
        CountC = CountC + 1
    End If
    
    If WS.Cells(I, "AG").Value = 1 Then
        CountAG = CountAG + 1
    End If
Next I

MsgBox ("Results of Counting Cells containing 1:" & Chr(10) & "Col C: " & Chr(9) & CountC & Chr(10) & "Col AG: " & Chr(9) & CountAG)

End Sub

I noticed that AG is not the same length as C.  They can have different row amount in each column.  Is that a possible issue? -R-

Well I incorporated the macro to your workbook and renamed it as .xlsm and changed the maximum rows as seem it was the problem. Check this version and note that in your data Col AG has more rows than Col C maybe that is your problem. Go down in your data and you will see that Col C stops at row 66 and then Col AG keeps on till row 172 maybe this is your problem ??? Anyhow the previous version would compare only the first 66 rows now it goes far beyond that to ensure no rows are missed.

Let me know. Delay in reply due to diffrent time zones.
