Hi

I have a column (A) in excel that lists all of the staff in an organisation, and in column B is their telephone number. In column C is a list of some of those staff (that have made a call to a helpdesk). These staff don't have a telephone number appended, so I need to match the staff in Column C to the Staff in Column A, and also make sure the equivalent telephone number sits along side aswell.

Thanks!

You have to use VLOOKUP


This is for for D2, you can add it to E2 if you want and then drag it down
=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(D2,B:C,2, FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(D2,B:C,2, FALSE))

Could you please upload a sample file with sample data etc on some shared site like https://authentification.site , http://docs.google.com, http://wikisend.com/ , http://www.editgrid.com etc and post back here the link to allow better understanding of how it is now and how you foresee. Based on the sample book, could you re-explain your problem too

Hi, here's the file. The information is 'fake'. I want to match the names in the last column to the names in the second column, and when matched I can then see their telephone numbers and departments along side...

Hope i've explained myself well enough...

Thanks!
