    You don't need a macro for simple matches like this.

    1) Open both files.

    2) In Example2 cell C2 put this MATCH formula:

    INDEX([Example1.xlsx]Sheet1!$B:$B, MATCH($A2, [Example1.xlsx]Sheet1!$A:$A, 0))

    3) Copy C2 down that column.

    An alternate version of that formula, in case one of the numbers does not match, would be:

    =IFERROR(INDEX([Example1.xlsx]Sheet1!$B:$B, MATCH($A2, [Example1.xlsx]Sheet1!$A:$A, 0)), "")
