    Please help newbie with Function?

    Hi all can anyone please help?

    I have worksheet 1 with data that does not change…

    Worksheet 1
    A B
    1 Fish 7
    2 Sugar 4
    3 Eggs 11

    and worksheet 2 with a list of mixed data …

    Worksheet 2
    A B C D etc……… K
    1 Fish ? : :
    2 Sugar ? : :
    3 Eggs ? : :
    4 Sugar ? : :
    5 Sugar ? : :
    6 Sugar ? : :
    7 Eggs ? : :
    8 Sugar ? : :
    9 Fish ? : :
    10 Fish ? : :

    I wish to use a function or formula that can be place in Worksheet 2 column K that will look at the list in Worksheet 2 A1:A10 and compare the items to Worksheet 1 A1:A3
    When a match is found then the result will be the value that corresponds to the item in Worksheet 1
    and appear in column K

    Result

    Worksheet 2
    A B C D etc……… K
    1 Fish ? : : 7
    2 Sugar ? : : 4
    3 Eggs ? : : 11
    4 Sugar ? : : 4
    5 Sugar ? : : 4
    6 Sugar ? : : 4
    7 Eggs ? : : 11
    8 Sugar ? : : 4
    9 Fish ? : : 7
    10 Fish ? : : 7

    Please can anyone help this newbie?

    Kind Regards

    Gary
