    Merge two sheets but matching numbers?

    Hi, I have two excel sheets. I need to merge, combine or sync them. Some of the column headers have the same name.

    For example,
    Sheet one has column headers: job number, job name, job ID
    Sheet two has column headers: job number, job category.

    Attached are sample sheets with made-up information but it shows what I need to do.

    I need these two sheets to become one sheet. Sheet 1 and sheet 2 job numbers need to match us and place the job category in the correct row to match the job number.

    Any idea how to do this?
    Thank you for your time
    Kimberly

    Power Query/Get and Transform is the way to go. Look at the link in my signature for more information.

    I found power query in excel office 365 but I can't see to get this to work. Do you know if there a tutorial that explains this or what keywords would find me the right kind of tutorial?

    Thanks

    If I am understanding what you want, then look at the attached file where I brought each file into a new workbook. I then promoted the first row to headers. I then merged (joined the two tables)

    Excel 2016 (Windows) 32 bit
    A
    B
    C
    D
    1
    Job Number Job Category Sheet1 (2).Job Name Sheet1 (2).Job ID

    Sheet: Merge1

    Power Query is a free AddIn for Excel 2010 and 2013, and is built-in functionality from Excel 2016 onwards (where it is referred to as "Get & Transform Data").

    It is a powerful yet simple way of getting, changing and using data from a broad variety of sources, creating steps which may be easily repeated and refreshed. I strongly recommend learning how to use Power Query - it's among the most powerful functionalities of Excel.
