How do I pull info utilizing 2 identifiers in Excel?

I am trying create a pivot table from 2 different sets of data in excel.  I need to pull all the info from one set and then add the hours/day from another set based off of the date/Employee ID.  Similar to creating a query in Access from 2 different tables.  

or

I could add a column to the first that references the second set.  Is it possible to do a VLOOKUP where it has to match both Date(column A) and Employee ID(column D) to pull Hours Worked(column C)?

Don't need a Macro just a one time GUI solution.

You could concatenate the two fields on both files and then do a VLookUp based on the concatenation.  Make sense?

Without seeing the actual data, it's hard to say, but sounds like a SUMIFS function will work in this case also.

Can you at least describe the key data in the two tables?  Your second paragraph seems to only mention one table with three specific columns.

Yeah, I actually do that already on another report, don't know why I didn't think of it.  I'm always trying to make things harder than they need to be.  Thank you for the quick reply.
