Multiple lookup values

Hi,

‘Sheet 1’ has the list of both ‘COMPANY_LEVEL_ID ‘, ‘Analyst Area’ and ‘Analyst Sub Area’ with the corresponding ‘TSK ID’. ‘Sheet 2’ has the two separate columns for ‘Analyst Area’ and ‘Analyst Sub Area’.

I am trying to fetch the corresponding ‘TSK_ID’ data from ‘Sheet 1’ worksheet to ‘Sheet 2’ worksheet. I know that we can use vlookup for this. However, there are few blank cells in ‘Column B’ (Analyst Sub Area) in ‘Sheet 2’ worksheet. If the ‘Analyst Sub Area’ is blank then we need to take the ‘TSK ID’ associated to ‘Analyst Area’ and update. For this, using vlookup is not feasible and hence we need a macro to do this.

On click of a button which is there in ‘Sheet 1’ the associated ‘TSK ID’ should be pulled to ‘Sheet 2’. I have explained this through an example in the attached spreadsheet. Kindly review and please help me on this.

Thank You,
Prashanth
