Using VLOOKUP between different worksheets may increase file size as much as the size of ranges you referenced.
You may uncheck the "Save external link values" setting in Excel Options to prevent his.
suggestionINDEX and MATCH combination will be better and usually faster in large workbooks.
For your case, this sense nothing. But if your original data is larger, you should consider.
=INDEX([Workbook1.xlsx]Sheet1!$B:$B,MATCH(A1,[Workbook1.xlsx]Sheet1!$A:$A,0))
