If a match is there, insert data from another sheet to main sheet.


I know that this is so simple, but I can't get it to work.


Sheet 1 (main data file where I want data to be imported INTO) has a location name column and an address column (currently blank).

Sheet 2 has the listing of location names and addresses.


If the location name on sheet 1, matches the location name on sheet 2, take the address on sheet 2 and populate the address field on sheet 1.

P.S. Formulas are NOT my friend!

thanks for the help!

    Hi @jason.scott@sclogistics.com

    I hope you're well and safe!

    =INDEX({ColumnWithTheValueYouWantToShow}, MATCH(CellThatHaveTheValueToMatch@row, 
    {ColumnWithTheValueToMatchAgainsTheCell}, 0))

    Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
