Is there a quicker way to use Autofill and VLOOKUP to drag down 22000 rows

I am copying corresponding data from Sheet2 to Sheet1.  I am using 11 Vlookup formulas to do bring over a column at a time.  The VLOOKUP formula is as folowws:
=VLOOKUP(A4, Sheet2!$A$1:Sheet2!$L$5564, 2, FALSE)
=VLOOKUP(A4, Sheet2!$A$1:Sheet2!$L$5564, 3, FALSE)
=VLOOKUP(A4, Sheet2!$A$1:Sheet2!$L$5564, 4, FALSE)
=VLOOKUP(A4, Sheet2!$A$1:Sheet2!$L$5564,5, FALSE)
=VLOOKUP(A4, Sheet2!$A$1:Sheet2!$L$5564, 6, FALSE) etc to
=VLOOKUP(A4, Sheet2!$A$1:Sheet2!$L$5564, 12, FALSE)

I have to pull the cross at the bottom of the cell down 22000 rows.  Is there a better way to do this?

Don't use VLOOKUP for that.
Use:
=MATCH(A4, Sheet2!$A$1:$A$5564, 0)
in one cell to get the position (say that formula is in B2) then use:
=INDEX(Sheet2!B$1:B$5564, $B2)
and copy across then fill down all the formulas (double-click bottom right of final cell)
Doing the lookup part once for each row rather than 11 times should be much more efficient.
