    Need formula to pull data from aanther sheet - cells not exact match

    Hi,

    Thsi forum was very helpful earlier today when I was looking to pull data from one sheet to another. Now I want to do a similar process to VLOOKUP but the data I am referenceing is not an exact match. For example:

    Sheet 1 contains

    Column A = School Name (Adams)
    Column B = address
    Column C = Phone

    Sheet 2 contains

    Column A = School Name (Adams Elementary)
    Column B = Contact Name
    Column C = Date of Contact

    I want pull the Date of Contact (Sheet2!C) for each school, but the names are not exact matches. Please help. Thanks

    Without a excel example it is difficult to give you an correct answer. (we can't test it).

    Try this one.

    The example is differant than the question.

    I changed it as i believe was meant.

    To use Vlookup, you need to make sure that the names are the same in both sheets.

    Do you have questions, on this item, just ask.

    What I am looking for is a formula that will help me pull the data when there is only a partial word match
