I have two spreadsheets.  Spreasheet A is a company list with companyID and companyname.  Spreadsheet B is a list of activites with several fields including a field for companyname.  How do I compare the two spreadsheets and change all the companyname's in Spreadsheet B to the corresponding companyID in Spreadsheet A?

Thanks!
