Advanced Macro Question

Greetings,
I'm building a macro and I need some help.

Suppose I have information in Columns "A" and "B" that never change:
Column A: Suporvisor's Name
Column B: Employee Name

Now suppose I put information into Column D
Column D:  Employee Name (The names are the same names in column B, however, they might be on different rows)

I need the macro to put the proper suporvisor's name into column e.

Example:  Suzy is in cell b4.  Her suporvisor, Linda, is in cell a4.  Now suppose I type Suzy's name in cell d50.  I need Linda's name to appear in cell e50.

Thoughts?

Thanks!
John

A simple Vlookup should work, given your supervisor and employee range is A1:B50 and you switch your columns of Supervisor and Employee:

Cell E50's formula "=vlookup(d50,"A1:B50,2,"False")"

The formula works, but I forgot to ask if there is a way it can ignore if it is in CAPS for not.

For example, everything in column B is lowercase ("Kathy"), but column D is uppercase ("KATHY")

Any thougths?  Sorry I forgot to mention this!

Sure.

This - ("Kathy") is ProperCase and not Lowercase, as a note.

"=vlookup(proper(d50),"A1:B50,2,"False")"

Lowercase would be:

"=vlookup(lcase(d50),"A1:B50,2,"False")"

One other quick note is that the data in column A should be sorted.
