Sheet one contains a list of stock codes with duplicates throughout.

I am trying to match the corresponding information in sheet two to each stock code in sheet one including duplicates.

I've tried using a vlookup but for some reason its not working for all duplicates???

Thanks
Rob

Are the duplicates going to have differences in the other columns?

At first glance they don't seem to.

If there are not differences, try this formula:

=INDEX(Sheet2!B:B,MATCH($A2,Sheet2!$A:$A,0))

If there are differences, we will need to use helper columns, or array formulas.
