    Updating Values from two sheets, no particular order..

    Hi there!

    I have two sheets. I want to update the corresponding values from one sheet to another. Realistically, I am trying to update old census populations with a new census population numbers from a LARGE list of counties--I just hope the wise wizards of this forum can save me the line by line work...

    EDIT: What is tricky with my situation is that the order of the counties from one sheet does not match--or rather is grouped--therefore its not a simple drag, copy, paste... unfortunately.

    I've attached an example that details what the situation is. The spreadsheet tells all.. But please let me know if you need more clarification.


    Thank you so, so much!! I really appreciate it!
