Manipulating Excel Data from different sheets/books

I have two excel books (office 2013).

The First Book has 600 names listed in column A. In column B it has data relating to mailbox sizes for the corresponding names in column A.

The Second Book has the same names but spread over 10 sheets (relating to the company they work for). The names are common in both books, (as in they are in the same format).

I am hoping to take the data in column B of the first excel book and input it into the various sheets in Book 2 using the name as the common element.

What's the best way to do this ?

This is a simple case of VLOOKUP, in Book2 with multiple sheets, against each name on each sheet

=VLOOKUP(A1,['Book1.xls']Sheet1!$A$1:$B$600,2,FALSE)

Probably easier to create the formula with selecting cells as you go rather than copying and pasting from here as I have used generic book and sheet names.
Thanks
