two price lists with slight variation on part #

Jonathan Brotto 1,076 Reputation points

Is there a way that I can compare 2 price list where in some cases one list or the other will compare with a slightly different part #? for example part # A103 and 103 might be the same item and in some cases it is a perfect match 101 and 101

    Hi @Jonathan Brotto

    Do you mean in your sample, you want to find or search "A103" via "103"?
    If so, you can use Countifs to cpmpare the 2 price lists.
    On my following sample, the value 1 means the Number and the Price as duplicated. The formula is =COUNTIFS($A$2:$A$6,"?"&D2,$B$2:$B$6,E2).

    If you mean "# A103" is the same match as "103", please try following formula, =COUNTIFS($A$2:$A$6,"#*"&D2,$B$2:$B$6,E2).

    Any misunderstandings, please let me know.
