hey guys,

I would use the search function, but for some reason I can't, so here it goes.

I'd like to be able to write a name down in sheet 2a1 and in b1 it has the number corresponding to it enter into it by looking it up in sheet 1.

For example, if on sheet 1 cell a5 I have Tesco, and in b5 £101 I want in sheet 2 b1 £101 after I have written Tesco into a1.

I hope you understand me.

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().
