I have a list of various zip codes that occur in a dataset. I also have a list of all the place names of a certain range of zip codes. Is there any function that I can put next to the column of zip codes that occur in the data set that will match them to the names of places from the zip code list of place names?

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).
