Formula help

Copper Contributor

Hi community


struggling to get my head round this...

I have 2 worksheets and need a formula for the following:


If column A (Customer) on Sheet 1 matches Customer on Column A on Sheet 2 then copy information from Column H Sheet 2 into Column B Sheet 1


Hope someone can help

=INDEX('Sheet 2'!$H$1:$H$1000,MATCH('Sheet 1'!A1,'Sheet 2'!$A$1:$A$1000,0))

=VLOOKUP(A1,'Sheet 2'!$A$1:$H$1000,8,FALSE)


You can enter one of these formulas in cell B1 of Sheet 1 and fill the formula down. With recent versions of Excel you can apply XLOOKUP alternatively.

Look up values with VLOOKUP, INDEX, or MATCH - Microsoft Support

@OliverScheurich thanks for the formulas but still struggling as i get a REF in the B1 Sheet 1 cell?


Forgot to mention i have headings in on both sheets:







So, want to match 'Customer' in Sheet 1 with 'Customer' in Sheet 2 and if a match copy the data in Sheet 2 'Client Release' (G) to Sheet 1 'Client Release' 'B' 


Hope you can advise further





In cell B2 of Sheet 1:

=INDEX('Sheet 2'!$G$2:$G$1000,MATCH('Sheet 1'!A2,'Sheet 2'!$A$2:$A$1000,0))


=VLOOKUP('Sheet 1'!A2,'Sheet 2'!$A$2:$G$1000,7,0)


If the data in the sheets starts in row 2 and if you want to return the results from column G of Sheet 2 you can apply one of the above formulas. The above formulas work if you don't have dynamic tables.


From your screenshots i can't tell if you work with dynamic tables. However if you use dynamic table you have to apply a formula like this


=INDEX(Tabelle3[client release],MATCH([@customer],Tabelle3[customer],0))


where you must replace Tabelle3 with the name of your dynamic table in Sheet 2.
