Hello, can anyone help me with the below? i need i'm guessing a formula that will do the below. I need the last column to show match as long as ZIP & ZIP matches PIZ & PIZ1 even if the row is blank and if 1 number is off just say its not a match.

 

ZIPZIP1  PIZPIZ1does it match?
259530311412  259530311412match
259530311412  259530311412match
259530311412  259530311412match
259530311412  259530311412match
259530311412  259530311412match
259530311412  259530311412match
259530311412    match
259530311412    match

@ntudev if you need those nulls to match here is my formula :

 

if [ZIP]=[PIZ] and [ZIP1]=[PIZ1] then "match" elseif length([ZIP])!=1 and Length([ZIP1])!=1 and IsEmpty([PIZ]) and IsEmpty([PIZ1]) then "match" else "not match" endif

@ntudev one way of doing this with the find and replace tool

@ntudev , does my solution above solve that?

@ntudev can you expand more on the logic?

 

'as long as ZIP & ZIP matches PIZ & PIZ1 even if the row is blank' - if there are blanks, ZIP & ZIP1 won't match PIZ & PIZ1 and so we can't consistently check for a match, especially if some numbers are different to the majority in that field.

 

'if 1 number is off just say its not a match' - if 1 number is off against what? Especially considering that, if any are blank then it'll always be off, even if it's the same as the majority in that column.

OK as i was working on this i found another challenge. How would i do the below? Note ZIP and PIZ should always equal to work. Can anyone help?
