I need some help.  I can create a formula, but I know that it's going to be a very nested IF/OR, Vlookup and I'm sure this can done easier with Index or Match, maybe.

I have a spreadsheet with a number of employee numbers.  I've used a vlookup formula to bring in the area (Column C on the headcount report) from the value on the Org Exec tab.  Here's the issue.  I have 9 Executives who are from our parent company (KRAFTS).  Their department number is KRF.  I have no way to give them an area, because they all have the same department number.  The executives are the heads of various areas, so I need to identify them in order to add them as a headcount.

The only distinct data point that I have are their employee numbers.  On the Org Exec tab, I've listed the areas, that they need to be associated with (Columns H,I).

I need a formula that says, if the employee number = "24433", then Corporate, else give me the area associated with the deparment number.  That's my thoughts, but I know that you experts, can probably come up with a 2 word formula that would solve this.
