Vlookup and variable rows of data Macro

Sorry if this has been covered but I have been searching post now for weeks on all sites.

I work in healthcare and need to compile a list of patients who do not meet certain requirements. Due to charting software I can only compile a list of patients who meet said requirements and compare to list of all patients.
All patients (worksheet "all") - Certain patients (Worksheet "well") = target patients.

In both worksheets, the patients unique account number is in Column A. In "all" I was adding a blank column B to insert the Vlookup formula. In "well" I was inserting a blank coumn B then adding YES to every row that contains data. Then I would run: =VLOOKUP(A13066,'well'!$1:$65536,2,FALSE) and simply sort the list for column B in "all"

The problem is, when I run this report monthly the number of rows in "well"
changes and also the number of rows in "all" changes. I am sure this is not the most effecient way of doing it. I could use a macro but can not figure out how to account for varying rows of data.

Most boards people just post equations and formulas, so I cannot figure out how to change those to meet my needs because I do not know what the individual variables within those formulas mean. Any help is greatly appreciated.

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Welcome to MrExcel board...

If you record your macro going through the steps, will give you the basics. Then the macro can be modified to make it generic. Try that and post back with questions on the macro to make it generic.

I recorded my macro and when I went to the Debugger I get this:

' compare Macro
' Macro recorded 3/23/2011 by user
'
'
Columns("B:B").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Range("B1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "well"
Sheets("well").Select
Columns("B:B").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Range("B1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "well"
Range("B2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "yes"
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("B2:B4565"), Type:=xlFillCopy
Range("B2:B4565").Select
Sheets("All").Select
Range("B2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-1],well!R1C1:R4565C2,2,FALSE)"
Selection.FillDown
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-4309
End Sub

do you have any suggestions. I need it to look up the account numbers in the ALL sheet and see if it is in the WELL sheet. The problem is the number of rows of data on each sheet changes every month. I would also like it to show the result "YES" if the account number is on "WELL" and "NO" if it is not.

I probably can figure that out but I do not know how to add the extra information to the VBA editor.

here I have made some modifications to make it more generic

Code:
Sub Compare()
' Macro recorded 3/23/2011 by user
Dim LR As Long, ALR As Long
LR = ActiveSheet.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
'
Columns("B:B").Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Range("B1").FormulaR1C1 = "well"
Sheets("well").Select
ALR = ActiveSheet.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
Columns("B:B").Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Range("B1").FormulaR1C1 = "well"
Range("B2").FormulaR1C1 = "yes"
Range("B2").AutoFill Destination:=Range("B2:B" & ALR), Type:=xlFillCopy
Sheets("All").Select
Range("B2").FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-1],well!R1C1:R" & LR & "C2,2,FALSE)"
Range ("B2:B" & LR)
End Sub
