Yes, you can use Vlookup.

So if your A set above is in Sheet 1 starting at A1, add the vlookup below to column B in the corresponding row.  This will look up your B dataset above, assuming it's in Sheet2 starting at A1.

=Vlookup(A1,'Sheet2'!$A$1:$A$12,1,False)

See attached.

Alternatively, you can use a combination of the Index/Match function.

=INDEX($A$1:$A$6,MATCH(A1,Sheet2!$A$1:$A$12,FALSE),1)
