yes this should be easy enough but please upload a sample workbook as it may be a lot easier to use a lookup.

is sheet(BIC) column B always sorted alphabetically ?

How do you tell the end of columns in sheet(DFG)

    Set rSrc = Worksheets("BIC").Range("B1") '<<hardcoded
    
    Do While rSrc.Value <> ""
        'proces the dest column
        Set rDest = Worksheets("DFG").Range("F1")  '<<hardcoded
        
        Do While rDest.Value <> ""
            If rDest.Value = rSrc.Value Then
                'replace with code number from column to left
                rDest.Value = rSrc.Offset(0, -1).Value
            End If
