Hey,

I'm working from two large databases. One db (A) has a list e-mail addresses, the other db (B) has a list of names and e-mails.

I need to search on B using the e-mail from A and paste the name in it's proper form back on A. Is there a formula I can use to do this so I won't have to go one by one????

For ex. =if(email from A) (matches e-mail from B) (replace with name on B)

Many thanks.

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Hi:

It sounds like a Vlookup formula might do the trick. Review some of the samples found in the search feature of this forum

VLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,col_index_num,range_lookup)
