How to compare if multiple cells are equal in Excel?
As we all know, to compare if two cells are equal, we can use the formula A1=B1. But, if you want to check if multiple cells have the same value, this formula will not work. Today, I will talk about some formulas to compare if multiple cells are equal in Excel.
Supposing I have the following data range, now I need to know if the values in A1:D1 are equal, to solve this task, the following formulas will help you.
1. In a blank cell besides your data, please enter this formula: =AND(EXACT(A1:D1,A1)), (A1:D1 indicates the cells that you want to compare, and A1 is the first value in your data range)see screenshot:
2. Then press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys together to get the result, if the cell values are equal, it will display TRUE, otherwise, it will display FALSE, see screenshot:
3. And select the cell then drag the fill handle to the range that you want to apply this formula, you will get the result as follows:
1. The above formula is case sensitive.
2. If you need to compare the values without case sensitive, you can apply this formula: =COUNTIF(A1:D1,A1)=4, (A1:D1 indicates the cells that you want to compare, A1 is the first value in your data range, and the number 4 refers to the number of cells that you want to check if), then press Enter key, and you will get the following result:

To highlight the cell values that appear three times or more, the Conditional Formatting can help you. Please enter this formula into the Conditional Formatting: =COUNTIF($F$2:$F$500,F2)>2 (Note: Change the cell references to your need),and then choose one color for highlighting the cells.
I have Cells A1=35, A2-45, A3=50, A4=75, A5=80, B1=40, B2=19, B3=55, B4=31, B5=22. In this, A1 IS 35 AND B1 IS 40. What I want to find out is find out whether anywhere else in the range the this combination is appear or repeated and how many times it is repeated i need to know. Can anyone help me out in this. If there is no formula, a vba would be helpful, thanks in advance.
The above formulas work well in Excel 2016, when you apply the first formula, please remeber to press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys together to get the correct result.
Please try again, thak you !
I wanted to compare the alphabets with 4 columns for every 4 rows. For example, A = [aabc;dbba;a] B = [aabc;baba;c] C = [aabc;dbba;b] D = [bcac;bcbc;a]
If we look at the table above shows first four rows, "aabc" repeated in 3 columns. So, out of 4, 3 gets correct matching.it is 3/4. for the second cycle, we can see "dbba" repeated so it 2/4.This is for 4 rows vs 4 rows, now the same matching method for taking one line down, two line down and three line down comparing with other string. Means, the rows will be constant and just the alphabets changing. The formula can be in the new column say E and results will be there. Any idea?
How about comparing multiple rows with certain columns? I wanted to compare the alphabets with 4 columns for every 4 rows.For Example,
A = [aabc;dbba;a] B = [aabc;baba;c] C = [aabc;dbba;b] D = [bcac;bcbc;a]
If we look at the table above shows first four rows, "aabc" repeated in 3 columns.

Means, the rows will be constant and just the alphabets changing. The formula can be written in a new cell may be the next column E. Any Idea?
Hi there!! I am very new to this excel validation and hence do not know much. I am trying to write a function in which if the values in A1 to A10 is True then the result in A11 should show Accepted and if they are not same then the result should prompt Rejected. Can you please help me write a forumula for the same. Thanks
