I have a spreadsheet with customer sales and market

I have a spreadsheet...

I have a spreadsheet with customer sales and market information for the first half of 2017. The list has over 10,000 rows. I added the market segment manually from a drop down menu. Very time consuming. I am now asked to do the same for the second half of 2017. The rows do not match as some customers may not have sales in either half. How can I get that market information transfer per customer easily?

Technician's Assistant: What application are you using?

Excel and I have also made an Access table. Although today was the first day to ever use that software.

Technician's Assistant: Have you updated Excel recently?

I believe we are using 2013

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I don't see it. The only link I see is showing $39. Is that it?

that is for remote support I think which you may not need.

Is there a paperclip icon or something like share files with expert

I want to transfer the 2017 H1 information to the Field Aerospace and also Business Unit to my new sheet.

which sheets which columns in which file are you trying to get to where?

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
H1 Sheet, column H Aerospace and I Business Unit information transferred to the H2 sheet. The columns are not identical to just copy. I need to make sure the Customer Name or ID match the market segment.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Sheet Standard SHAPE form to fill out

got you so you wnat to copy the H column values from the first file to the 2nd file but to make sure they match the id#s in column A, becasuse they are in a different order.

Ask Your Own Programming Question

there are a couple of ways to achieve this. One is using formulas the other is with a macro.

The first is easier to impliment, but the 2nd is more expensive and difficult to impliment but more versitile such as working across multiple files, and copying multiple columns Ect..

HOw do you want to proceed

Ask Your Own Programming Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
This is going to cost more than the $56 I've already paid?

if you want to go with the macro route.

HOw often do you have to do this?

Ask Your Own Programming Question

do you want to try the formula and see how this works.

Ask Your Own Programming Question

here is the formula for cell H2 on file version Rev_2H

=VLOOKUP($A2,'[Customer_Sales_with_Market_Served_2017_1H_Rev2.xlsx]Standard SHAPE form to fill out'!$A:$H,8,0)

now the part between the '[]' is the name of the file, this formula asssumes that both files are in the same folder on your computer

and that the filename is ***** ***** as the file you sent me

once you enter the formula into cell H2, you can copy and paste the formula or drag copy down the entire column for however many rows you need
