i am trying to index and match two diffrent excel spreadsheets. one has the same info on it as the other except for one column. i'm trying to add that data over on the other spreadhseet becaue not all the names are on the spreadsheet i'm trying to get a result on. please help. example: i'm trying to place the job location to the blank column using index and match, because not all names are on the first sheet.

Now write below formula in Sheet1 column location which suppose in A2

You are writing this formula in blank cell of sheet1
Sheet2!D = This is the column of location in sheet2
Match(A2 This is the Name which you are searching for from Sheet1 to Sheet2
Sheet1!C:C This is the column "Name" in Sheet1

Just try above formula and do let me know ...........

hi, I tried but the formula can't seem to work
example s/s 1 have column a-d which is similar to s/s 2, and i'm trying to index column e in s/s 1 over to s/s 2.
how do I do that?

I am trying to bring back a value in column "B" after performing a vlookup function to determine that (sheet!absolute range does have a match with column AX2:AX4000 - for example)

So I think we are trying to do the same thing - Will an if then work and can someone provide an example? Thank you.
