Excel or Access Gurus

Assuming that you have all of the 2007 parts on the 2008 Sheet, you can
do a lookup of the 2008 part on the 2007 sheet and if available, bring
in the appropriate column.

Generally I would do a

IF( ISNA( VLOOKUP(lookup_value, table_array, col_index_num,
[range_lookup]) ), " ", VLOOKUP(lookup_value, table_array,
col_index_num, [range_lookup]) ).

The Range Lookup should always be FALSE, this way you don't get the
nearest item. If it's not there you get an N/A so the NA test determines
whether to use the lookup or not.

Now all of the data is on one sheet.

Jonathan,

Another simple way would be to use the SUMIF function. Put the 2008
Data on one sheet with the 2007 data on the other. Use the Part Number
column on the 2007 sheet as the evaluation array and the Part number
cell on the 2008 sheet as the criteria. Have the columns from the 2007
sheet that you want included as the Sum Arrays.

I am sending you a quick example off-list.

Regards,

Bill

It's days like this one that I just want yell, "WHY ME!"

Okay, here it is.

I need to combine two seperate Excel sheets with similar data. Here is
what I have in an example.

2007) Part Num, Acct No, Yr 2007 Price, 2007 Extended Price

2008) Part Num, Acct No, Yr 2008 Price, 2008 Extended Price

I need to have all of the data on the same excel sheet, BUT the part
Numbers have to match up and the 2007 and 2008 data for the part
numbers.

For example using the headings above:

A1234 1000

Hi Jonathan,

Likely, you can have each sheet in your workbook separately (2007data,
2008data,CombinedData). Copy whichever worksheet you want as the base
(2007 or 2008) to the CombinedData worksheet...Then use a named range
and vlookup to get data for the other year...

I will send a mini sample direct to you offline.

The last parameter of the VLOOKUP function determines that behavior. It will
either return the closest record or NULL.

The VLOOKUP will work only if the every part number is in both sheets. If a
part exists in target but not your source then you'll miss it completely.

If the number of records isn't too great, you could dump both sheets into
one adding a field for the year then take that sheet and do a pivot table.
That will give you all of the data in a single view of the data.

If it'll all fit on one sheet, do that & then create a pivot table (part number as y axis & year as x axis. Then dump your price and extended price into the table.
