How to quickly flip data upside down in Excel?
In some special cases, in the Excel work, we may want to flip our data upside down, which means to reverse the order of a column data as below screenshot shown. If you type them one by one in a new order, this will be time-consuming. Here I introduce some quick ways to flip them upside down in a short time.
Compare two ranges and select and highlight the same or different values in Excel
|In Excel, if there are two tables in a sheet or two sheets needed to be compared, generally, you will compare one row by one manually. But if you have Kutools for Excel's Select Same & Different Cells utility, you can quickly find the same rows or different rows, and, also, you can highlight them with background color or font color as you need.

You can create a help column besides your data, and then sort the help column to help you reverse the data.
1. Click at a cell next to your first data, and type 1 into it and go down the next cell type 2. See screenshot:
2. Then select the number cells and drag the autofill handle down until the number of cells is same as the number of data cells. See screenshot:
3. Then click Data > Sort Largest to Smallest. See screenshot:
4. In the Sort Warning dialog, check Expand the selection, and click Sort. See screenshot:
Now both help column and data column are reversed in order.
Tip: You can remove the help column if you do not need it any more.

1. Select a blank cell and type this formula =INDEX($A$1:$A$8,ROWS(A1:$A$8)) into it, press Enter key, then drag the autofill handle to fill this formula down until there appears duplicate order data. See screenshot:
Now the data has been flipped upside down, and you can remove the repeat data away.
With above methods, you only can reverse the values order. If you want to reverse the values with their cell formats, you can use Kutools for Excel’s Flip Vertical Range utility. With Flip Vertical Range utility, you can choose flip values only or flip values and cell format together.
