    Index, Match and populate data

    One file, two worksheets. If the serial number on Worksheet1 Column c, row 2 matches a serial number on Worksheet2, Column a, I want the information from worksheet2, column b, same row to be populated in worksheet1, column b, row 2. Then I want to repeat that for all the rows in worksheet1.

    Can someone give me a template for this formula? I've been studying Index/Match all morning and just get more confused the more I read. Many thanks!

    Sounds like you need to use VLOOKUP.

    On sheet1 in B2, put this formula and then copy the cell downward:

    =INDEX(Sheet2!$B;$B, MATCH($C2, Sheet2!$A:$A, 0))


    If you want to add in error checking:

    =IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH($C2, Sheet2!$A:$A, 0)), INDEX(Sheet2!$B:$B, MATCH($C2, Sheet2!$A:$A, 0), ""))
