MS Query using a Join, will work on itself within one file.

If small volume then maybe vlookups, if large volume then MS Query
I think we need to see the layout to actually write anything without guessing.

Powerpivot would do it too, but that's maybe a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

Upload an example for more please.
