# Match two columns (two sheets) to pull data into sheet 1

1. ## Match two columns (two sheets) to pull data into sheet 1

Good afternoon,

I am using Excel 2007.

I have frustrated myself trying to make a sample formula work I received from a friend.

I need the formula to extract an order number (DOCNO) from Sheet2's column D to put its matching record on Sheet1 in column A when Sheet1's NIIN matches Sheet2's NIIN column.

I have attached a sample of the spreadsheet.

Here is the script sent me. I made multiple variations trying to make it work, but no success.

=INDEX(Sheet1!\$C\$2:\$C\$2493,MATCH(1,IF(Sheet1!\$A\$2:\$A\$2493=\$B4,IF(Sheet1!\$B\$2:\$B\$2493=\$C4,1)),0))

Thanks for any help.

See the golden cells.

Awsome, seeing what you did and my changing the sheet names to update the formula shows perfectly how to set up the formula. I did expand the column (bolded) to use on the rest of the rows.

=INDEX(DOCNO!D\$1:F\$6,MATCH(ABF_Records!\$D\$6:D22,DOCNO!\$F\$1:\$F\$20,0),1)

Thank you very much, it works great.

Learn yourself to keep the range of data always the same. e.g. d1:f20 => d6:d20 => f1:f20 (instead of f21).
