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!

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.
