I have two worksheets in the same workbook and I need to get a column from one worksheet matched up into a column of another worksheet.

active worksheet (hours)
column A - ID
...
...
column O - Segment

lookup worksheet (data)
...
column B - ID
...
...
column H - Segment

SO I need a lookup in hours column O that will find a hit on ID = ID and get the segment from data

You should be able to use a VLOOKUP formula for this, e.g. in O2 on hours worksheet

=VLOOKUP(A2,Data!B:H,7,0)

Then copy that down the column
