Here's a macro you can use. If you need help implementing the macro please let me know.

Sub FindAndCopy()

Dim rngFound As Range
Dim lngLastRow As Long
Dim lngRow As Long
lngLastRow = Range("B1048576").End(xlUp).Row

    Sheets("Report").Activate
    For lngRow = 1 To lngLastRow
        If Sheets("Report").Cells(lngRow, 2) <> "" Then
            With Sheets("ABC").Range("A:A")
                Set rngFound = .Cells.Find(What:=Sheets("Report").Cells(lngRow, 2), LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
                    :=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
                    False, SearchFormat:=False)
                If Not rngFound Is Nothing Then
                    If Sheets("ABC").Cells(rngFound.Row, 3) <> "" Then
                        Sheets("Report").Cells(lngRow, 21) = Sheets("ABC").Cells(rngFound.Row, 3)
                    Else
                        Sheets("Report").Cells(lngRow, 21) = "No Rating"
                    End If
                Else
                    Sheets("Report").Cells(lngRow, 21) = "No Rating"
                End If
            End With
        End If
    Next
End Sub

If I have understood the requirement, I think you can use a VLOOKUP formula for this, in column U of Report:

=IF(VLOOKUP(Report!B1,ABC!A:C,3,FALSE)=0,"No Rating",VLOOKUP(Report!B1,ABC!A:C,3,FALSE))

Copied down as far as required.

Amendment to allow for No Find:

=IF(OR(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(Report!B1,ABC!A:C,3,FALSE)),VLOOKUP(Report!B1,ABC!A:C,3,FALSE)=0),"No Rating",VLOOKUP(Report!B1,ABC!A:C,3,FALSE))

It could be the placing of brackets, I typed the formula, on the hoof as they say, rather than copying.

I am away from desk now but will take a look when get chance
