# Formula: How match data from from cell to entire column of data

I am trying to match data from two different Sheets, and bring in Data from Sheet 2 to Sheet 1 based upon matching criteria. Below is an example format:

SHEET 1:

ColumnA:
Row 1. Company Name
Row 2. Company A
Row 3. Company B
Row 4. Company C
Row 5. Company D

SHEET 2:

ColumnA / ColumnB::
Row 1. Company Name / Account Owner:
Row 2. Company C / Jessica
Row 3. Company A / David
Row 4. Company D / Ken
Row 5. Company B / John

IF a Company Name from a cell in Column 1 in Sheet 1 has a match anywhere in Column 1 in Sheet 2, I need to display the Account Owner (the adjacent cell) of that matching record in Sheet 1 next to the company name. Problem is Sheet 2 has way more Company Names than Sheet 1, so I need to look through a hole column of data to find a match.

FINAL:

ColumnA / ColumnB::
Row 1. Company Name / Account Owner:
Row 2. Company A / David
Row 3. Company B / John
Row 4. Company C / Jessica
Row 5. Company D / Ken

I have no idea which formula will work for this. Thanks!
