Compare and Merge Specific Values

I'm working on 2 spreadsheets that are driving me nuts. I know there are compare/merge functions in Excel, but I can't get the options to share/merge options at all (all grayed out). I'm attempting to get the data by a formula instead. I basically have 2 versions of the spreadsheets, but not everything is in the same row - the old data has a lot more information than the new data. I basically need to match up the item numbers for both columns, and pull the Legacy Code to the New Code column if it exists. If there is some formatting option to identify the ones pulled over, that would be even better.Below is a simplified version of the spreadsheet, but the original has almost 3000 lines.

I've attempted to use Match and INDEX functions, but I must be doing something wrong.

=INDEX(A3:C2693,MATCH(E3,A3:A2693,0),3)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey

This formula should work for you. In the New Worksheet, use this formula and replace Sheet4 with the Legacy Worksheet. Or in the Legacy Worksheet, replace Sheet4 with the New Worksheet.
