Search For Data in Excel and Copy to Another Spreadsheet

Hello – I need some help with Excel. In Spreadsheet A I have all the data I need except for e-mail address, the column in Spreadsheet A for the e-mail address is Column D. Spreadsheet B has the e-mail address in Column D. Is there a way to search on the Last Name & First Name from Spreadsheet A to Spreadsheet B, find the e-mail address for that user in Spreadsheet B and copy and paste it into Spreadsheet A? In spreadsheet A, the last name is in column B and the first name is in column C. In Spreadsheet B, the last name is in column A and the first name is in column B. Spreadsheet A has 1,210 rows of data and Spreadsheet B has 15,037 rows of data.

1.Insert a temporary help column at column A in file B where you enter
and copy down to the end of data.
2. Enter this VLOOKUP formula in column D in file A and copy down to the end of data
3.Copy column D in file A and paste special as values
4. Delete temporary help column in file B
