I have two columns: in column A a list of codes and in column B the description of those codes.
I want to insert automatically the corresponding description in column B based on the code I reinsert in column A. How to do it?

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

Copy your list of codes and descriptions to one sheet (master). Then use a vlookup to populate code description on another (working) sheet.
