Touma sends in what should be an easy question. Sheet 1 contains Customer, Item, and Quantity Sold. Sheet 2 is a Price List with Unique Prices per Customer Name. Bill could have solved this with PowerPivot or with a Two-Way LOOKUP. As he started to do the LOOKUP, though, he discovered that the Sales Database include a lot of Items that are not in the Pricing Table. Some are simple misspellings, but others are simply missing. This is representative of real life – the Pricing Manager’s Data doesn’t match the Sales Data. Follow along with Episode #1733 as Bill sorts this Data and – once again – displays the versatile utility of PowerPivot.
