Hi People...

I see there are so many questions and answers on sorting data....... I have one for you, a solution for which would help me no end...

I have two excel spreadsheets.... one with a list of customers, and the qty of visits they took last year; the other shows a(regularly updated) list of customers, and their visits they are booking for the coming year.... so... like this

Sheet 1:
Customer QtyVisits Scheduled (Yes/No)

Sheet 2:
Customer QtyVisits

I have to put the data from Sheet 2 alongside the data from Sheet 1, i.e. copy it onto the same spreadsheet, and then be able to sort and match up both sets of data.... this way I can see who still needs to be scheduled etc etc...

Is there any way I can do this?

Not sure exactly what you want

Lets say you want to see in last year status, how you are doing this year.

Assumption
Data on sheet1 starts at row 2
Column D in sheet 1 is available

In D2 write

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(A2, Sheet2!A:B, 2, FALSE)), "", VLOOKUP(A2, Sheet2!A:B, 2, FALSE))

Drag this formula to the last line
