How to import source data on an existing primary field

My source file contains the exact city / lot number which coressponds to an exact device number.

I want to take my existing spreadsheet and have all city/lot numbers sync with that of my source file.

So spreadsheet A; ROW 01 would now contain the same device number as Spreadsheet B; ROW 01 and so forth.
If possible I would like to have all fields within this column print the word null if there is no source data for that city /lot
from Worksheet B.

Is this done with a vlookup? I have been trying but to no avail

Yellow cell on worksheet A is what I am trying to pull over from the source worksheet

Hi,

You can do it with this formula

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(B2,'B - SOURCE'!$A$2:$B$378,2,FALSE)),"null",VLOOKUP(B2,'B - SOURCE'!$A$2:$B$378,2,FALSE))
