MS Excel 2010

I have 2 different spread sheets with the same following headers: Username, Displayname, Email.
Is there a way for me to grab the similarities of the Username, and have all those copied to a new column, new sheet or anything? So from the 2 spread sheets I basically want to grab all the usernames that are same. example: sheet 1 has 5 usernames and sheet 2 has 20 user names. I want to compare the username value of the 2 sheets and get just user name that appears on both sheets. Hopefully this can be done without needing any add-ons.

In one of the columns in sheet2 just paste this formula
=+VLOOKUP(A1;Sheet1!A:C;1;FALSE)

Open in new window

and point the A1 cell to the correct cell and it will return the matching usernames..

If this is not correct post sample sheet with desired results
