How do I match and append/merge data from two spreadsheets?
Hello,
I have two spreadsheets in the same workbook. I want to match and append/merge the data from spreadsheet #1 with spreadsheet #2. Both spreadsheets have different data than the other, however, both spreadsheets do contain a column with the same data (same ID numbers), this is how I should be able to match them together since this is the association between the two spreadsheets. I want to append the data from spreadsheet #2 with spreadsheet #1 so that a single spreadsheet contains all the data from both spreadsheets (8 columns worth of data). One would think this would be easy to do with Excel, but I cannot find any help on this topic in the Help section or on the Web. I am using Excel 2007. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

VLOOKUP would probably be the simplest way. Example:
=VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:F,6,False) The above formula would look for the value in A2 of the current sheet in column A of sheet 2. When a match is found, it will bring back the value in the 6th position of the column array A:F (which would be column F). Kinda hard to explain, but for more info on VLOOKUP formulas, use Excel's help feature or at the below site. http://office.microsoft.com/enus/ex...093351033.aspx EL wrote: > Hello, > > I have two spreadsheets in the same workbook.

How do I match and append/merge data from two spreadsheets?
Thanks, but in reading about VLOOKUP, that isn't quite what I am trying to
accomplish. I want all values in the two associated cloumns (ID number columns)from each spreadsheet to be matched up and then subsequently consolidate all the data from all columns (that matched) into the same rows. I essentually have data from two different sources that I am trying to consolidate (fortunately both sources have a related column with matching ID's) that I should be able to use to match the data up. There has got to be a way to do this in Excel. "JW" wrote: > VLOOKUP would probably be the simplest way.
