    Display information from one spreadsheet in another spreadsheet

    Hi,

    I have one excel file named 'New Client To Do List' which I would like to display information from another spreadsheet named 'Current Transfer Summary' within a different excel file named 'Transfer Tracker Apr 10 to'. I would like information stored in columns I and J in the 'Current Transfer Summary' spreadsheet to appear in columns C and D of the 'New Client To Do List'.

    I have played around with the VLOOKUP function but the problem I have is that the two spreadsheets both have some clients that only appear on one spreadsheet. So I need a function that will look at the client name in column A in one spreadsheet and match it to the name in column A in the other spreadsheet before returning the values.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks a lot.

    Vlookup should work... If you don't find a match you can return a blank instead of an error like so:

    copied to next column and down.

    Make adjustment to add the path or do it with both books open, then close the source workbook.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
