Lookup in excel

I have an excel file which contains two worksheets. The first worksheet has a column called ID and a field called Status. If there is an ID on this worksheet (Sheet1) and the Status = "Done" then I want the ID field on Sheet 2 which for the same ID to be updated to a 1 in order to count the total number done. Sheet 2 contains all of the ID's which could potentially be upwards of 20k but sheet 1 only has the done id's which will be added to on a daily basis.

If I could get this to update automatically that would be great although I don't know the best way to go. Thank you.

vlookup sounds like the way to go as long as the ID is exactly the same

ID field on sheet 2 should have


this assumes sheet 2 has COL A = ID, sheet 1 Col A=ID, sheet1 col B=status
A sample file attached. You can modify it as per your need.

it would work with a sumproduct as well
=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A50000 = G1)*(B1:B50000="done"))

where A1:A50000 is the column with the ID's, G1 holds the ID  you want to check for and B1:B50000 is the column whre done is to be in..
Eric ZwiekhorstSAP Business ConsultantCommented:
By the way, the sumproduct does the count of how many time you find done for a certain ID...

Kind regards
