I have a file called 'managers list' with wirecenter name in column A and Managers name in column B...

Daily - I receive a file called 'orders' with the wirecenter in column A. I want to add a column and have that column look up the associated managers name by checking against column A in daily orders file and cross referencing against wirecenter in 'Managers List' file...

Please help...
