Excel Formula Help

Posted on 2014-03-25

Hello Experts,

Attached is the Excel file that I need help with. In the sheet labeled "Changes Jan to Feb" I used a formula to compare the data in "BOM 1" and "BOM 2" to tell me which parts have changed. If possible, I would like a formula for "Changed Only 1" that will fill in columns A-E with only the parts that have changed in "Changes Jan to Feb," but not the ones that read "N/A" or "NEW PART!"

If a better explanation is needed, please ask questions.

Thanks,
Drew

I think I see what you are trying to do.

I'd say, either use VBA for this, or create a hidden sheet that consists of your "Changes Jan to Feb" info, then have a viewable sheet that uses a vlookup to return only those items which have changed.

Perhaps try this formula method.

In the Jan to Feb sheet add a helper formula in column F.

At F2 enter:

=IF(D2="CHANGE!",COUNT(F$1:F1)+1,"")

copied down.  This cumulatively counts the items with Change in column D

Then your formula in another sheet to get the results would be:

=IFERROR(INDEX('Changes Jan to Feb'!A:A,MATCH(ROWS($A$2:$A2),'Changes Jan to Feb'!$F:$F,0)),"")

copied down and across as far as necessary.
