Hello,

Sheet1 is a list of 20 Names in column A with their corresponding shoe size in column B.  I have pulled 5 Names from Sheet1 Column A onto Sheet2, and would like to use a formula to populate the corresponding shoe size from Sheet1 onto Column B in Sheet2.  What is the best formula to use?

Thank you,

Rene'

You may try the VLookup formula to get the desired info in column B.

 

In B2

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!A:B,2,0),"Not Found")

and copy it down.

For Microsoft 365 users XLOOKUP has replaced VLOOKUP.  Using a table for the data

= XLOOKUP(Name, tblData[Name], tblData[Size], "Not listed")

For everyone else, you are stuck with the nations favourite, VLOOKUP, or you could turn to INDEX/MATCH.
