Need help with formula to automatically fill in Contact List from another column


I have the following columns and sheets and I just cannot seem to figure out how to do what I need.

  • Sheet 1 (Main Sheet)
    • Staff Listing (value is Text Full Name coming in from outside source)
    • All Staff (Contact List selector (assigned to))
  • Sheet 2 (reference Sheet)
    • Technician Name - Contains full name
    • Email Address - contains email address

I need to fill in the All Staff contact list automatically based on the Staff Listing value.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Got it!

    My problem was I was using an email address in the other column but it needed to be a contact list just like what I was trying to Match it to

    So I used:

    =VLOOKUP([Staff Listing]@row, {Reference Sheet}, 2, False)

    {Reference Sheet} I created a reference in the column with the Name and the contact lookup in the Directory sheet and column 2 was the contact list.
