# Match data on two sheets and pull identifer value from a separate column

1. ## Match data on two sheets and pull identifer value from a separate column

Hello

I have tried a slew of different formulas but I can't seem to get the outcome I am looking for. I need to make a station comparison for an individual project build based off a master list. Sheet 1 has the individual build with column A as a part number, column b as a description and column c as a quantity required and column D is blank. Sheet 2 has a master list of every part we carry formatted as: column a as a part number, column b as a description, column c as a quantity required and column d as a unique station identifier for that part (which is always a number).

What I am trying to do is match the part number on Sheet 1 Column A to Sheet 2 Column A, and when a match is found, take the unique identifer under column D associated with that part number and have it displayed on Sheet 1 Column D.

Sheet 1 will change with each build, but it will always be the same format in columns a,b,c,d. Basically I have a format on sheet 1 for what is needed to build each custom kit (787 kits) and sheet 2 carries every part we offer along with the identifer in column d (always a number value). I want to create a formula I can easily copy to match the value in sheet 1 column a to sheet 2 column a and add the identifier from sheet 2 column D to sheet 1 column D. The average kit is roughly 120+ parts so doing that for each part 787 times will be a nightmare. Also in case this matters, sheet 1 column A will have the parts arranged in a random order based on what is desired for that kit. Sheet 2 column A has the part numbers in order from our lowest part number to the highest number (basically an entire inventory list sorted from lowest to highest).

I'm not sure if it's possible, but hopefully someone can help me with this.

Example

(For sheet 1, since it doesnt carry formating 11111111 is in column a, nut, flange is in column b, 1.00 is in column c and the output data i want would go into column D)

Sheet 1
A B C D
11111111 Nut, Flange 1.00 *Starts blank* -looking for - Output from Sheet 2 Column D (1)
33333333 Bolt, Squared 4.00 *Starts blank* -looking for - Output from Sheet 2 Column D (4)
55555555 Bolt, Coated 3.00 *Starts blank* -looking for - Output from Sheet 2 Column D (2)
22222222 Bolt, Hex 4.00 *Starts blank* -looking for - Output from Sheet 2 Column D (11)
44444444 Bolt, Screw Type 2.00 *Starts blank* -looking for - Output from Sheet 2 Column D (3)

Sheet 2
A B C D
11111111 Nut, Flange 1.00 1
22222222 Bolt, Hex 4.00 11
33333333 Bolt, Squared 4.00 4
44444444 Bolt, Screw Type 2.00 3
55555555 Bolt, Coated 3.00 2
