I have an excel workbook with two sheets.

The first sheet looks like this:

ITEM ID  |  QTY
1001       |   0
1002       |   0
1003       |   0
1004       |   0
1005       |   0
etc....

The second sheet looks like this:

1001       |   43
1023       |   32
1233       |   234
1043       |   432
1345       |   233

I need to have a formula that can put the data into the appropriate column in excel.  For instance (using my example).  In sheet 1, you would see 32 for the item id 1023.

Basically, the formula is going to look at sheet 2.... and match the item id with sheet 1, and put the data into the column next to it.

Please help!  I need this within 24 hours!

If it helps.  I have a sample file attached.

Glad to help. For info, vlookup is one of the most useful excel functions. There I've put it in an error handling if to avoid getting #N/A results, and get zeroes instead.
