in Sheet1 J1, use the following formula

=IF(AND(I1="Yes",NOT(ISNA(MATCH(B1,B:B,0)))),B1,A1)

I tried to edit before someone posted.

If I1 = "Yes" and  Sheet1 B1 = Sheet2 A (any row or is a match)
then insert Sheet 2's value from column B in J1 on Sheet1

else if  I1 = "No" then insert Sheet1 A1 value into J1

Sorry - I tried to edit. Hopefully it will be easy to change.
