I need help with a formula

Hi @cburnett
If I have understood correctly, you have a sheet with column A and B as pasted above. Then in another sheet, you want to be able to enter a value from column A and have another column populate with the value from column B.
So, your output in the second sheet would look like this:
If so, you can do this with an INDEX and MATCH function.
If these new columns were in the same sheet as A and B, the formula would be:
=INDEX(B:B, MATCH([Enter A here]@row, A:A))
Where Enter A here is the column name
If the new columns are in a different sheet you will need to replace B:B and A:A with cross sheet references.
=INDEX(B:B, MATCH([Enter A here]@row, A:A))
If you paste that formula in and then click on the references to change, a pop up will guide you through creating a cross sheet reference:
Your formula will end up looking something like this (depending on the names you give your cross sheet references).
=INDEX({Assignment Sheet B}, MATCH([Enter A here]@row, {Assignment Sheet A}))
Hope that helps.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much!

Great! Thanks for letting me know.
