# Recommendations on a formula or other

##### Board Regular
I am looking for a recommendation on a formula or other option to best complete the following task.

I have two data sheets that have different data but have a common identifier between the two, so my ask is to take the common identifier and to essentially merge the data from both sheets onto one sheet. What I have done initially was used VLOOKUP on one sheet and its searching the other data sheet for the common identifier and then bringing along the accompanying data. Here is a copy of my current formula =VLOOKUP(\$A\$35,Case_Form!\$A2:\$C\$44,2,FALSE). My struggle is I would like to be able to bring the whole row of data over rather than my current process where I am changing what cell to bring over in my formula ie 2-3-4-5.... I am sure there is a much better way to accomplish this task. Thanks in advance.

This formula can be copied across to capture the whole row:
Rich (BB code):
``=VLOOKUP(\$A\$35,Case_Form!\$A2:\$C\$44,COLUMNS(\$A:B),FALSE)``

If the column you are looking for is B, then C, then D, etc, then:

=VLOOKUP(\$A\$35,Case_Form!\$A2:\$Z\$44,COLUMN(),FALSE)
