    trying to update a master worksheet from another sheet

    I am trying to use vlookup to update two columns in a master workbook using the information from another sheet. The problem I'm having is that there are slight differences in some names in the two sheets (ex. including a period after a middle initial). Because of this, the formula cannot find the name correctly and the formula does not work. I am relatively new to excel and just know the basics. Any suggestions for fixing the names so that they are the same other than doing every one manually?

    Sure, you can probably use a wild-card as part of the search. However, to get a more detailed answer, I suggest that you follow the directions in the yellow banner at the top.
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you
