I have a workbook with Sheet1 and Sheet2. Sheet1 columns are 'SSN' and '2019 Hours'. Sheet2 columns are 'SSN' and '2020 Hours'.
I need to match Sheet1 column 'SSN' to Sheet2 column 'SSN' and create Sheet3 with 'SSN', '2019 Hours' and '2020 Hours'.
It's possible that Sheet1 column 'SSN' won't have a match in Sheet2, in that case I would just copy Sheet1 column 'SSN' and '2019 Hours' , or it's possible Sheet2 may have a 'SSN' that Sheet1 doesn't, in that case I would just copy Sheet2 column 'SSN' and '2020 Hours'.
I've uploaded some test data for reference.
Would this require a VB macro to accomplish? If so, does anyone have something similar they are willing to share?
thanks in advance!!

Here is a macro:
Sub CombineSheets() ' Change the constants to the actual names of your sheets Const sh1 = "Sheet1" Const sh2 = "Sheet2" Dim ws1 As Worksheet Dim ws2 As Worksheet Dim ws3 As Worksheet Dim col As New Collection Dim r As Long Dim m1 As Long Dim m2 As Long Dim v As Variant Application.ScreenUpdating = False Set ws1 = Worksheets(sh1) m1 = ws1.Range("A" & ws1.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row On Error Resume Next For r = 2 To m1 col.Add Key:=CStr(ws1.Range("A" & r).Value), Item:=ws1.Range("A" & r).Value Next r On Error GoTo 0 Set ws2 = Worksheets(sh2) m2 = ws2.Range("A" & ws2.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row On Error Resume Next For r = 2 To m2 col.Add Key:=CStr(ws2.Range("A" & r).Value), Item:=ws2.Range("A" & r).Value Next r On Error GoTo 0 Set ws3 = Worksheets("Sheet3") ws3.Range("A1:C1").Value = Array("SSN", "2019 HRS", "2020 HRS") r = 2 For Each v In col ws3.Range("A" & r).Value = v r = r + 1 Next v ws3.Range("B2:B" & col.Count + 1).Formula = "=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,'" & sh1 & "'!$A$2:B$" & m1 & ",2,FALSE),"""")" ws3.Range("C2:C" & col.Count + 1).Formula = "=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,'" & sh2 & "'!$A$2:B$" & m2 & ",2,FALSE),"""")" Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
See the attached version, now a macro-enabled workbook. Make sure that you allow macros when you open it.

Hans to the rescue again!
That's going to work great. I'm going to go through the macro and make sure I understand what it is you're having it do. I may reach out to you with a couple of questions next week, if that's ok?

@Rufus_Bertrand Just wanted to show a solution that doesn't require VBA and which really is very simple and ultimately flexible. Spend some time learning Power Query and you will probably not need much VBA in the future. With Power Query you connect to the two tables (or named ranges) that contain the hours for each year. Then append the two and group by SSN. All done with standard User Interface buttons. No programming required. Writing this post took longer than creating the table in Sheet3 (attached).
