I have 2 excel spreadsheets that have the same patient names. In the spreadsheet called “ClarityScheduling_CTRC_Formatted” Column H which is the “StudyID” field is blank and I want to update that column from column C “Study ID” field of the other spreadsheet called “Clarity-CTRC Combination “ by matching the patient name and the date of Appointment together and then copying and pasting the corresponding “Study ID” from column C of the “Clarity-CTRC Combination.xls “ to column H of “ClarityScheduling_CTRC_Formatted.xls”  I have done a couple of examples high light for you to see what I am trying to accomplish with 1173 records. The question is how can I accomplish copy and pasting the correct study IDs to the other spreadsheet.  Attached are the 2 excel spreadsheets. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

with both workbooks open, enter this formula into cell H2 of the target workbook

=INDEX('[Clarity-CTRC-Combination.xlsx]Combination'!$C$2:$C$1175,MATCH(B2&D2,INDEX('[Clarity-CTRC-Combination.xlsx]Combination'!$A$2:$A$1175&'[Clarity-CTRC-Combination.xlsx]Combination'!$B$2:$B$1175,0),0))

Copy down.

Some cells will show "#N/A" because the combination of name and date is not found in the source file.

To show something other than N/A for these cells, wrap the formula in IFERROR, like this

=IFERROR(INDEX('[Clarity-CTRC-Combination.xlsx]Combination'!$C$2:$C$1175,MATCH(B2&D2,INDEX('[Clarity-CTRC-Combination.xlsx]Combination'!$A$2:$A$1175&'[Clarity-CTRC-Combination.xlsx]Combination'!$B$2:$B$1175,0),0)),"not found")

cheers, teylyn
