Hi All,

Can you plz help me in writing a macro for excel, my requirement is

I have 2 column data in excel, one coming from sybase and other from mssql( both the col consist of same data). I have done proper order by etc in db programming,to align both the column however, still I need to do realigning manually. which takes lot of time If columns are > 1K.

I want to write a macro which aligns columns 2 based on column 1, if there is no propermatch found for col1 in col2 then leave it blank in col2.

eg. for these in excel

Col1 Col 2
dt_id amt_inv
tax_id tax_id
amt dt_id
amt_exl amt_exl

for the above I want output as below
for this I want to write macro, isstead of applying filter etc
as soon as I past the values in col2 it should run a macro to
align the col2 values with col2

Col1 Col 2
dt_id dt_id
tax_id tax_id
amt_inv amt_inv
amt_exl amt_exl
