    Vlook up for multiple columns?

    Hello everyone,

    I was hoping to get more of your expert help with excel. I've been trying for two days but can't seem to figure out what I am doing wrong or if I am even going in the right direction, I'm hopeful someone here can help me please.

    I am trying to get excel to look at the values in each row of sheet1 and see if they are an exact match to any row in sheet two. If so I want excel to take the Value in the value column of sheet2 and place it in the Column1 of sheet1. For example if row 1 sheet1 has N Copy Empty No and row 5 in sheet2 has the same values in the same columns then I want it to return the value in the Value column of sheet2 to column1 of sheet1

    I've tried everything I can think of but can't get it to work. I have attached a sample workbook so you get a better idea of what I'm trying to do

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Have a great day

    in Sheet1!G2
    Array formula, use Ctrl-Shift-Enter

    UPDATE: Before you say this doesn't work, none of your example data matches.

    UPDATE2: Sheet1 Column D has a space after each entry, the column that's supposed to match (Sheet2 Column D) does not. Therefore they will not match. You'll need to fix that.

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.

    Check the attachment.

    I assumed there will be no duplicates, however in case there will be duplication use column J instead of column I in match function.

    As mentioned by Special-K none of your data matches so I inserted 2 rows on both sheets.
