    Translating unique values

    I have a bunch of data, on one spreadsheet, Say 20 columns that I canít tamper with. i have a set number of unique values, on another sheet I have those same unique values(store number) plus a bunch of extra ones i donít need, but I need to grab unique information(phone numbers) from the sheet that has the extra store numbers and place them into the excel sheet I canít tamper with. Is there a formula that could help? Even if I have to put all the info on a different sheet and filter them a certain way, i could do that.

    I use INDEX/MATCH for this, but you can also use VLOOKUP() or LOOKUP() based on some other restrictions about the layout of the table you're searching. INDEX/MATCH has none of those restrictions.

    Here's some sample sheets showing what I think you're looking to do.
