    Find specific cells in excel and copy to adjacent cells corresponding values

    Hello,
    I have a huge amount of entries, from which I need to find specific cells that match strings in another sheet. To every match, I need to copy to adjacent cell a corresponding date. For example, the strings to be found: "1234", "5678", "9644".. and if found, I need to write next to each of them a specific corresponding date from another sheet.
    I tried using the formula: if(isnumber(search(the range of cells, the range of target cells)),the range of corresponding dates,"no), however this could work only for one cell but not a range.
    I would be very grateful if someone could help me on this.

    Have a nice day

    Re: Find specific cells in excel and copy to adjacent cells corresponding values

    Hi, srolash,

    have you tried the functions VLookUp or Index/Match to solve your problem (please note that the search ranges should be absolute when filling down the formula)? From what has been written I doubt a mcaro to be necessary.

    Ciao,

    Re: Find specific cells in excel and copy to adjacent cells corresponding values

    Dear Sixthsense,
    I have attached two example spreadsheets; the value_spreadsheet that contains the specific I.Ds to be searched in the target_spreadsheet, and once found, the corresponding dates to be copied to adjacent column in the target_spreadsheet.
    Thanks for your interest and intention to help, which I need desperately.

    Cheers

    Re: Find specific cells in excel and copy to adjacent cells corresponding values

    Dear Holger,

    Yes I have tried these functions, but since I'm not a big expert in excel, I did not know how to write their syntax correctly, and this yielded error
    If you know how to use them, I would be more than glad if you could show me.

    Re: Find specific cells in excel and copy to adjacent cells corresponding values

    Dear Sixthsense,
    That's really awesome, it worked perfectly!!
    However, the data I just supplied is not the real confidential data, and I need to copy the formula to the real documents, but I could not understand the syntax; if it's not a bother to you, could you explain to me what's written in it, I know it's a big favor!!

    Thanksssss again,
    srolash

    Re: Find specific cells in excel and copy to adjacent cells corresponding values

    Dear Sixthsense and all,

    I think I figured it out (I mean the vlookup formula). Really, I am speechless and very grateful for your willing to help.

    Have a nice day
