## Compare two columns or sheets

One of the tasks you might have is to search two columns or sheets for matches or differences and identify them somewhere outside the tables.

### Compare two columns in Google Sheets to find matches and differences

I'll start by comparing two cells in Google Sheets. This allows you to scan entire columns row by row.

#### Example 1. Google Sheets: Compare Two Cells

For this first example, you need a helper column to insert the formula into the first row of data to be compared:

`=A2=C2`

If the cells match you will see TRUE otherwise FALSE. To check all cells in a column, copy the formula to other rows:

Advice.To compare columns from different files you need to use theIMPORTRANGE function:

`=A2=IMPORTRANGO("hoja_de_calculo","Hoja1!A2")`

#### Example 2. Google Sheets - Compare two lists for matches and differences

- A cleaner solution would be to useIF function. You can set the exact status for
**identical and different cells**:`=IF(A2=C2,"matching","difference")`

Advice.If your dates are written in different case and you want to treat those words differently, this is the formula for you:

`=IF(EXACT(A2,C2),"Corresponds","Different")`

Where EXACT examines the case and finds complete matches.

- Just identify the lines with
**double cells**, use this formula:`=IF(A2=C2,"Correspondence","")`

- Mark only the lines with
**unique records**between the cells in two columns, take this:`=SI(A2=C2,"","Different")`

#### Example 3. Compare two columns in Google Sheets

- Is there a way to avoid copying the formula on each line? You can forge an IF array formula in the first cell of the auxiliary column:
`=Array-Formula(IF(A2:A=C2:C,"","Different"))`

This IF matches every cell in column A with the same row in column C.

**the records are different**, the line is marked accordingly. The beauty of this array formula is that it automatically checks each row at once: - If you prefer to name the lines
**identical cells**, replace the second argument of the formula with the third:`=Array-Formel(IF(A2:A=C2:C,"Match",""))`

#### Example 4. Compare two Google Sheets to see the differences

Often, you need to compare two columns in Google Sheets that belong to a huge spreadsheet. Or they can be completely different spreadsheets, such as reports, price tables, work shifts per month, etc. So I don't think you can create a help column or it might be too hard to maintain.

If this sounds familiar, don't worry, you can always mark the differences on another sheet.

Here are two tables with products and their prices. I want to put all cells with different content between these tables:

First, create a new worksheet and enter the following formula in A1:

`=SI(Hoja1!A1<>Hoja2!A1,Hoja1!A1&" | "&Hoja2!A1,"")`

To useYou must copy the formula to the area corresponding to the size of the larger table.

As a result, you only see cells that differ in content. The formula also pulls records from both tables and separates them with a character that you type in the formula:

Advice.If the spreadsheets to be compared are in different files, just embed them againIMPORTRANGE function:

`=SI(Hoja1!A1<>IMPORTRANGO("2nd_spreadsheet_url","Hoja1!A1"),Hoja1!A1&" | "&IMPORTRANGE("2nd_spreadsheet_url","Hoja1!A1"),"")`

### Tools for Google Sheets to Compare Two Columns and Sheets

Of course, any of the above examples can be used to compare two columns of one or two tables, or even compare spreadsheets. However, there are some tools we have developed for this task that you will greatly benefit from.

#### Add-in to compare columns or sheets

This first one compares two Google Sheets and Columns to duplicates or uniques in 3 steps. Let it mark found records with a status column (which can be filtered by sign) or color them, copy or move them to another location, or even delete cells and remove entire rows with duplicates of any kind.

I used the plugin to find the rows from Sheet1 that are missing from Sheet2 based on*fruit*j*RRP*Columns:

I then saved my settings for a scenario. Now I can run them quickly without having to go through all the steps again every time the records in my tables change. I just need to launch this scenario from the Google Sheets menu:

For your convenience, we have described all of the tool's options in itshelp pageand in this video:

Try it yourself and see how much time you save. :)

#### Compare sheets cell by cell

The other compares their Google spreadsheets for differences. Whether you have two or more worksheets, it will examine them cell by cell and generate a complete report with the differences of all worksheets grouped accordingly.

Here is an example of the same two tables. The plugin creates a report not only with different cells (highlighted in yellow), but also with single rows (highlighted in red and blue):

To get a closer look at the report and all of its parts, feel free to read itit is textbookor watch this demo video:

Or better yet, tryboth pluginsyourself and see how much time they save you. :)

## Compare data in two Google Sheets and get missing records

Comparing two Google Sheets for differences and repeats is half the battle, but what about missing data? There are also special functions for this, for example VLOOKUP. Let's see what you can do.

### Find the missing data

#### Example 1

Imagine you have two lists of products (in my case, columns A and C, but they could be on different worksheets). You need to find those that are on the first list but not on the second. This formula will do that:

`=FEHLER(BUSCARV(A2,$C:$C,1,0))`

Here's how the formula works:

- VLOOKUP finds the product of A2 in the second list. If present, the function returns the product name. Otherwise, you'll get a #N/A error, which means the value in column C was not found.
- ISERROR examines what is returned by VLOOKUP and returns TRUE if it is the value and FALSE if it is the error.

So cells with FALSE are what you are looking for. Copy the formula to other cells to check each product in the first list:

To useIf your columns are on different worksheets, your formula will refer to one of them:

`=FEHLER(BUSCARV(A2,Hoja2!$C:$C,1,0))`

Advice.To work with a formula for a cell, it must be an array. This formula automatically fills all cells with results:

`=Array-Formel(ISERRO(VLOOKUP(A2:A10,$C:$C,1,0)))`

#### example 2

Another clever way would be to count all occurrences of the product of A2 in column C:

`=IF(CONTIF($C:$C, $A2)=0, "Not Found", "")`

If there is absolutely nothing to count, the IF function marks cells with*Lost*. Other cells remain empty:

#### Example 3

Where there's VLOOKUP, there's MATCH. you know it well ;) Here's the formula for connecting products instead of counting:

`=IF(ERROR(MATCH($A2,$C:$C,0)),"Not Found","")`

Advice.Feel free to specify the exact range of the second column if it's still the same:

`=IF(ERROR(MATCH($A2,$C2:$C28,0)),"Not Found","")`

### extract corresponding data

#### Example 1

Your task might be a bit more complex: you might need to extract all the missing information for common records from both tables, for example B. update prices. If yes, do you need to wrapAGREEMENT in the INDEX:

`=INDEX($E:$E,CORRESP($A2,$D:$D,0))`

The formula compares the fruits in column A with the fruits in column D. For everything it finds, it extracts the prices from column E to column B.

#### example 2

As you might have guessed, another example would use thoseGoogle Sheets VLOOKUP functionthat we described some time ago.

However, there are a few more tools for the job. We also describe all of them on our blog:

- To beIt does the basics: find, combine, and update records.
- To beIt not only updates cells but also adds related columns and mismatched rows.

#### Merge worksheets with the plugin

If you are tired of formulas, you can use ours.Plugin to merge worksheetsto quickly combine and merge two Google Sheets. In addition to its basic purpose of extracting missing data, it can also update existing values and even add rows that don't match. You can display all changes in color or in a filterable status column.

Version 2.0 of Merge Sheets not only merges 2 tables (one parent with one lookup), but multiple sheets in one row (one parent with multiple lookups). The data from the survey sheets will be added to its parent one by one: just like you added it in the plugin.many additional optionsThis will make your merger as complete as you need it to be.

Advice.Watch this video about the Merge Sheets plugin. Although it only consists of 2 sheets, it clearly shows the additional possibilities:

## Conditional formatting to compare data in two Google Sheets

There is another standard way that Google offers to compare your data: coloring matches and/or differencesConditional format. With this method, all the records you are looking for will be highlighted immediately. Your task here is to create a rule with a formula and apply it to the correct data range.

### Mark duplicates across two sheets or columns

Let's compare two columns in Google Sheets for matches and color only the cells in column A that match the cells in the same row in column C:

- Select the range of records to be colored (A2:A10 for me).
- Becomes
*Format > Conditional Formatting*in the table menu. - Enter a simple formula for the rule:
`=A2=C2`

- Choose the color to highlight the cells.

Advice.If your columns are constantly resizing and you want the rule to take all new entries into account, apply it to the entire column (A2:A, assuming the data to be compared starts at A2) and change the formula as follows manner:

`=E(A2=C2,IT'S EMPTY(A2)=FALSE)`

This processes entire columns and ignores empty cells.

To useTo compare data from two different worksheets, you need to make further adjustments to the formula. You see, conditional formatting in Google Sheets doesn't support cross-sheet references. However, you can access other worksheets indirectly:

`=A2=INDIREKTO("Hoja2! C2:C")`

In this case, specify the range to which the rule should apply: A2:A10.

### Compare two Google Sheets and Columns to see the differences

To highlight records that do not match cells in the same row in a different column, the sweep is the same as above. Select the range and create a conditional formatting rule. However, the formula is different here:

`=A2<>C2`

Modify the formula again to make the rule dynamic (allow any newly added values in these columns):

`=E(A2=C2,IT'S EMPTY(A2)=FALSE)`

And use the indirect reference to another worksheet if the column to compare exists:

`=A2<>INDIREKTO("Hoja1! C2:C")`

To useDon't forget to specify the range to apply the rule: A2:A10.

### Compare two lists and mark records in both

Of course, it's more likely that the same records are scattered across your columns. The value in A2 in one column is not necessarily in the second row of another column. In fact, it can appear much later. This, of course, requires a different method of finding the articles.

#### Example 1. Compare two columns in Google Sheets and highlight differences (unique)

To highlight unique values in each list, you need to create two conditional formatting rules for each column.

Cor Column A:`=CONTAR.SI($C$2:$C$9,$A2)=0`

Choir Column C:`=CONT.SE($A$2:$A$10,$C2)=0`

Here are the only ones I have:

#### Example 2. Find and mark duplicates in two columns in Google Sheets

You can color in shared values after making small changes to both formulas in the previous example. Just let the formula count anything greater than zero.

Duplicates colors between columns in A only:`=KONTAR.SI($C$2:$C$9,$A2)>0`

Color copies between columns only in C:`=CONT.SE($A$2:$A$10,$C2)>0`

Advice.Find many more examples of formulas to highlight duplicates in Google Sheets atit is textbook.

### Quick ways to combine columns and highlight records

Sometimes conditional formatting can be tricky: you might accidentally create some rules in the same range or manually apply colors to cells with rules. Also, you should keep an eye on all areas: those you emphasize through the rules and those you use in the rules themselves. All of this can get very confusing if you're not prepared and don't know where to look for the problem.

fortunately oursCompare Google Sheets Collection of Sheetshas two easy-to-use solutions for you.

#### Addon to compare and highlight duplicates or uniques

Compare columns or sheetsIt's intuitive enough to help you combine two columns in a table, two different tables in a worksheet, or even two separate worksheets, and highlight unique or duplicate items that might be making their way into your data.

Highlighted duplicates between two tables accordingly*fruit*j*RRP*Columns with the tool:

I can also save this configuration in a reusable scenario. When the records are updated, I call this scenario with just one click and the plugin starts processing all the data right away. So I avoid tweaking all those settings over and over again through the extra steps. You will see how the scenarios workin the example abovejin this tutorial.

Advice.Have you watched the demo video for the Compare Columns or Sheets plugin?To hear.

#### Add-on to compare Google Sheets and highlight the differences

Compare sheets cell by celldon't stay behind. View any differences between two columns or worksheets. Compare as many spreadsheets as needed, even from different files. Typically, one of these tables acts as a parent table and compares it with others. The plugin highlights the differences in these other worksheets so you can immediately spot them:
