Sub Updatevalues()
    Dim lastrow As Long, rng As Range
    Dim lastrow2 As Long, rng2 As Range, cel As Range
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    With Sheet2
        lastrow2 = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row
        Set rng2 = .Range("B2:B" & lastrow2)
    End With
    For Each cel In rng2
        With Sheet1
            .AutoFilterMode = False
            lastrow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
            Set rng = .Range("B1:B" & lastrow)
            rng.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=cel.Value & "*"
            On Error Resume Next
            rng.Offset(1, 2).SpecialCells(12).Value = cel.Offset(0, 1).Value
            rng.Offset(1, 3).SpecialCells(12).Value = cel.Offset(0, 2).Value
            rng.Offset(1, 4).SpecialCells(12).Value = cel.Offset(0, 3).Value & ""
            On Error GoTo 0
        End With
    Next cel
    With Sheet1
        .Cells(lastrow + 1, 4).Resize(1, 3).ClearContents
        .AutoFilterMode = False
    End With
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub


Sir i have updated the new workbook with other values in Sheet2 but its not updating data for last value smoke.


That is because the entries on Sheet1 don't begin with "THE SMOKE PIT":




Change the line

            rng.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=cel.Value & "*"


            rng.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="*" & cel.Value & "*"
Thank you very much Sir. This help means alot.
