I've got 2 dis -similar SAP reports that I have downloaded into excel.

One is a Vendor List and the other is a Customer list.

What I want to do is find the names that are on BOTH lists.

What is the best way to do this?

Thanks

please post an example of the data, along with column and row numbers.

are you restricted to using formulas or code, or are both allowed?

I'd use just MATCH -- let's say you've got data in column A of both sheets.

=MATCH(A1,'Other Sheet Name'!A:A,0)

The above in, say, B1 then copied down to end of column-A data.

The return of as number signifies that that Ax value was found on the other sheet [ the number will be the row number of the 1st match ].

A eturn of #N/A signifies no match was found.

I've tried Match & Lookup.

The problem is that the Customer & Vendor names probably are not EXACTLY the same on both sheets.

On one sheet the name may be "ABC Company" and on the other it may be "ABC Co.".

How can I get around this?

Thanks

Yu've got a bit of a problem...

Perhaps try to rectify your data first, or see if Alan's Fuzzy Match UDF here might help.

How about posting a small sample, to include some of those "near miss" matches -- can your data be sorted?
