    Find in replace with X if value is Y. Y & X is on a list

    Hi,

    I have a weekly data dump with 10s of thousands of transactions that we turn into a report for our client.
    Our software does not have the ability hold all names in completion (only set number of characters available).
    On a monthly basis, this data is used to send a report to a client. We have to replace all incomplete names with the full names for the client (manual ctrl F - Replace etc.)
    There are hundreds of these instances that need to be replaced and it takes a lot of time to complete this task each month.

    Is there a way to automate a find and replace in excel from a given list.
    As well I am happy to utilise a helper column. I had considered this but I do not know of how to utilise something like an 'if' function with so many options on the list.

    Any ideas?

    Kind regards,

    Try below formula in D4
    =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A4,J$4:K$36,2,0),A4)
    use Column D as helper column,
    Copy Data from Column D and paste it in Column A

    I assume that your table names will always be the same.

    If So run this Macro.
