Hi,
Is it possible to copy a cell from sheet 1 to sheet 2 where (for instance)
sheet 2 A1 is same value as a cell in sheet 1?

What I have is:
sheet 2, with a name column and an empty age column
sheet 1 with a name column and the age of the person.

I want a script that searches for the matching name and copies the corresponding name to sheet 2. Is that possible?

Thanks.

2 michael =VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!$A$2:$B$6,2)
3 joseph =VLOOKUP(A3,Sheet2!$A$2:$B$6,2)
4 william =VLOOKUP(A4,Sheet2!$A$2:$B$6,2)
5 peter =VLOOKUP(A5,Sheet2!$A$2:$B$6,2)
6 john =VLOOKUP(A6,Sheet2!$A$2:$B$6,2)

Sheet2
