Here is my latest...

I have a sheet (sheet1) with 3 columns - Item, Quantity, Cost
I have a second sheet (sheet2) with 3 columns - Item, Description, Cost

I'd like sheet1's cost column to match an item within a row to the same item on sheet2, find the sheet2 cost, and multiply it by the sheet1 quantity.

ex...
sheet1
----
a, b, c
computer, 2, ??
phone, 1, ??


sheet2
-----
a, b, c
computer, P4 Dell, 100
phone, polycom 2000, 50


sheet1 would then match 'computer' and 'phone' within sheet2 and perform the calculation
----
a, b, c
computer, 2, 200
phone, 1, 50


I have yet to be dissapointed with the Excel wizards here. Thanks guys!

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

I've looked into it but haven't had time to learn it completely. If that's all that is needed then I'll learn it on my own. For now, though - it's quiting time. See you all in the AM.
