Hello Experts

Can someone please take a look the sample spreadsheet and show me how to add the 'record count' in column B in sitelist1.xls  to Column M in sitelist2.xls.

For example in sitelist1.xls you see BIRMINGHAM (10 COLMORE ROW) with record count:1. There is also a BIRMINGHAM (10 COLMORE ROW) insitelist2.xls but without the record count. I would appreciate if someone could show me how match BIRMINGHAM (10 COLMORE ROW) in sitelist1.xls with BIRMINGHAM (10 COLMORE ROW) in sitelist2.xls and add the record count - and do the same for all the other cells.

I hope that makes sense.

Cheers

Do you mean in sitelist2.xlsx, cell M2, add formula:

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(TRIM(B2),[sitelist1.xlsx]Sheet1!$A:$B,2,0),"")

copied down.
