I have an excel spreadsheet with multiple tabs

I am working on a tab called summary

In all tabs there is one common column A which is the opportunity ID
 
What I am trying to do is create a lookup that will bring in the contents of column H from tab (recompete) when column A in summary equals column A in recompete.

The formula looks as though it should work.  Are you getting any results?  Perhaps your A3 doesn't exacly match column A entries in recompete sheet.  Are you comparing numbers?  Perhaps either A3 or the A:A column are actually text that look like numbers?  If not comparing numbers, check for extra spaces in the cells that may cause an issue.
