Hi all,

I have a spreadsheet with two tables of numerical data as per Figure 1

Main

In each Table there can be a maximum of 63 Rows and 20 columns.

I would like to compare and analyze the actual physical offset of
a set of numbers appearing in each table.

I would like to firstly colour the cells located in Tables 1 & 2 respectively that match the offset numbers.

In Row 1 Column D to Column J there are 7 offset numbers in those cells that relate to Table 1

In Row 1 Column AI to AO there are also 7 offset numbers in those cells that relate to Table 2

In this example the offset numbers in Table 1 are 40, 32, 817, 66, 309, 103 and 334 and in Table 1 they are colored yellow

In Table 2 the offset numbers are 12, 100, 69, 55, 200, 45 and 99 and also have been colored yellow

The next step is to analyze the actual cell Row and Column locations of
each individual offset number.

In this example:

The row and column details for the offset numbers in appearing in Table 1 are as follows:

Offset Number 40 : Line 1 Col1
Offset Number 32 : Line 1 Col15
Offset Number 817 : Line 3 Col5
Offset Number 66 : Line 4 Col1
Offset Number 309 : Line 6 Col3
Offset Number 103 : Line 9 Col1
Offset Number 334 : Line 15 Col1

The row and column details for the offset numbers in appearing in Table 2 are as follows:

Offset Number 12 : Line 1 Col2
Offset Number 100 : Line 6 Col2
Offset Number 96 : Line 2 Col4
Offset Number 55 : Line 16 Col1
Offset Number 200 : Line 1 Col15
Offset Number 45 : Line 6 Col3
Offset Number 99 : Line 3 Col2

I am looking for repeat positional locations, so from the data example above I would
end up with the following stats:

The repeated locations of number data occur at the following Rows and Columns:

Line 1 Col15 (Numbers 32 & 200 occupy these locations in the their respective Tables) marked with thick Black border
Line 6 Col3 (Numbers 309 & 45 occupy these locations in the their respective Tables) marked with thick Black border

The results would then be written to a Summary Table named "Summary Table - Part A" in a Worksheet TAB called "Summary"

Please refer to Figure 2 below:

LH_Table Analysis.xlsm

Summary

In addition to this in Table 1 of the MAIN sheet I would like to colour the cell locations where there are no repeats with the colour Blue and
that are a direct translation of number locations from Table 2 as per Figure 1.

So from the example above

Table 2 data is as follows

Offset Number 12 : Line 1 Col2 >>> translates to Table 1 location Line 1 Col2 Number = 90
Offset Number 100 : Line 6 Col2 >>> translates to Table 1 location Line 6 Col2 Number = 128
Offset Number 96 : Line 2 Col4 >>> translates to Table 1 location Line 2 Col4 Number = 666
Offset Number 55 : Line 16 Col1 >>> translates to Table 1 location Line 16 Col1 Number = 0 ( no value found)

not processed as it has repeated row and column locations **** Offset Number 200 : Line 1 Col15

not processed as it has repeated row and column locations **** Offset Number 45 : Line 6 Col3

Offset Number 99 : Line 3 Col2 >>> translates to Table 1 location Line 3 Col2 Number = 699

Therefore the numbers from a direct translation are:

1. 90
2. 128
3. 666
4. no value
5. repeated row and column
6. repeated row and column
7. 699

I would like to write this data to the Translation Table labelled "Translations From and To Table " in the "Summary" Sheet as per Figure 3
where it would detail a 'From' and 'To' translation event

Summary

In the "Summary Table - Part A" Table there are (7) columns with headings Labelled "P1 to P7" and Rows labelled "Lvl0 to Lvl10"

From the above results we get:

Line 1 Col15 (Numbers 32 & 200 occupy these locations in the their respective Tables) marked with thick Black border
Line 6 Col3 (Numbers 309 & 45 occupy these locations in the their respective Tables) marked with thick Black border

In Table 1 Number 32 occupies the same row and column location as number 200 in Table 2 (Line 1 Col15)
the result of this is to be written to the "Summary Table - Part A" in the location under Column labelled P2 and the cell coloured green

Also in Table 1 the Number 45 occupies the same row and column location as number 309 in Table 2 (Line 6 Col3)
and as such will be written to the "Summary Table - Part A" under the Column labelled P5 as well as having the cell coloured green

The criteria for where this data is to be written to in the "Summary Table - Part A" under the column headings of P1 TO P7 is determined as
follows:

In Table 1 reading from left to right all the numbers coloured in yellow and in a horizontal direction we have the following sequence:

P1 P2 P3 P4 P5 P6 P7
Offset Number 40, 32, 817, 66, 309, 103, 334

Therefore the number 32 is the second number(P2) reading in a horizontal direction from left to right and Number 309 is the fifth number(P5)
when read in the horizontal sequence

There are (2) additional columns labelled "Number of Matching Locations" and "Number of Translations" respectively

1. The column "Number of Matching Locations" adds up all the Positions marked in green and have been identified as a repeated row and column
location.

2. The column "Number of Translations" is the total of all BLUE coloured locations from Table 1 that have a value in their
respective cells.. (Not to count empty blue cells) this total also adds the total of all repeated row and columns that have a thick Black
Border, in this example the TOTAL count for all events is 6 ( 4 blue + 2 yellow with thick black borders)

In this task in the Summary sheet I have created a Table called "Summary Table - Table 1 Current offset Positions", this Table simply records the numbers from Table 1 of the MAIN sheet
that have been coloured yellow against the Offset numbers located in Row 1 Column D to Column J, please see Figure 4

Summary

***IMPORTANT***

I would like all of the above to be a REPEATABLE process in that the above analysis can be performed on a set of different number data that
can be populated into both Table 1 and Table 2 of the "MAIN" sheet

1. What I have detailed above is what I call a Lvl0 run and acorrdingly all data written to their respective locations,

I am looking to run this an additional 10 times all up 11 runs.

So for each additional run I would like data to be appended to their resepctive RUN locations from Lvl0 to lvl 10.

I would like the Translations Tables "Translations From and To Table " in the Summary sheet to append output created in a left to right direction as per
Figure 5.

I look forward with in hearing back from someone soon

Regards

Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

Hi there,
that is quite an extensive description, although for someone that's not into your subject/sheet sometimes hard to follow. What I'm wondering: it sounds like you're looking for someone to build/code you a solution, am I right? If so: this is a forum with volunteers, if you're looking for someone to hire: from the forum rules: If you have an urgent need, check the Consulting Services page.
Cheers,
Koen
