I have 2 spreadsheets with 30,000+ rows. Both have a column called SKU. I need to get the info under the retail price and cost price columns in spreadsheet 2 and merge them into spreadsheet 1 making sure that the information is merged into the correct corresponding (matching) SKU row.

This is something I will need to do on a recurring basis as there will be quartely pricing updates.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Is there only ever 1 SKU (Unique) in each sheet?

saurabh726,

I believe you have put me on the correct path. I am, however, very new to Excel. I am attaching 20 rows for each of my spreadsheets so you can see exactly what I have to work with. Each sheet has 36000+ rows. I am not sure how to use this command on two separate spreadsheets. I would like to bring in all of the info from the pricing spreadsheet into the master spreadsheet, of course I need to match up the data with the SKU number on each sheet.

Would you be kind enough to show me the correct way to achieve this?

Thanks,

Rip
