Am looking to "merge" two excel spreadsheets

New Contributor

I have two spreadsheets.  The one thing they both have in common is they both have:

Lastname and Firstname 

 

But only one has Telephone and email addresses.  And of course, some of them are missing names.

 

I would like to bring over the contact info fields.  Is there a formula to do this?

 

Thanks.

Google XLookup or Vlookup

@SergioDCQ ,

 

I hope you are doing well.

 

I believe XLOOKUP will help you achieve what are you looking for.

XLookuo seems right. But how can I search 2 columns i the 1st field (first and,last name)?
Add a new column to the end of both sets of data and type =A2&B2. Replace cell references to match your data. Then use the new column as your lookup reference.

It's not necessary to add helper columns, that could be like

=XLOOKUP(
  Lastname & "=" & Firstname,
  LastnameColumn & "=" & FirstnameColumn,
  PhonenumberColumn,
  "no phone"
)
