Hey Everyone, this is my very first thread here please excuse any novice actions I may make while posting this, thanks.

I have about a dozen spreadsheets (we'll call these the "Dirty Dozen") that all have product Sku's in column A and have a column for Product ID's in column B but no actual Product ID's populating the cells.

Then I have 1 spreadsheet (we'll call it "Main Spreadsheet") that I have Product ID's in column A and Sku's in column J.

I am trying to match the match the spreadsheets by sku and if there is a match, populate the Product ID's column on the Dirty Dozen spreadsheets that are missing Product ID's. There are some Sku's on the Dirty Dozen spreadsheets that will not be found on the Main Spreadsheet.

Note: They are all in csv file format.

I've been searching for video tutorials and answers online but I find all these crazy cool things you can do with excel but nothing that does this.
Someone please Help!

if you are able to manipulate the file I would suggest the following.
Open and save the file as Excel format.
Go to the Main Spreadsheet and insert a new column A (A becomes B, J becomes K)
make cells in A equal to K
Then put the following formula in column B of the other dozen spreadsheets:
=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A4,'Main Spreadsheet'!A:B,2,0),"NOT FOUND")
or something like this :)

I can't imagine why it would not work ?
What is the result? Which part didn't work?
