You need to define a few things.

What do you mean by one excel: a worksheet or a workbook?

When you say that you want to migrate the data, do you mean that you want to move it or to copy it?

What do you mean by mapping the corresponding reference value. This is already the role of vlookup. Why do you want do to it in a macro instead of continue to use vlookup? Do you want to keep the relation between the original and the "migration". That means if the original changes, do you want the "migrated" data to change too?

In order to write a macro, one needs to have all the details.

You don't need a macro - VLOOKUP will work - see attached.

I repeat one of my questions, because a Phillip says, vlookup already does that.

Why do you want do to it in a macro instead of continue to use vlookup?

I would still use VLOOKUPs. It doesn't make sense to do a macro for only 6 workbook migration (and the structure between them in unknown etc). If it were 100, then I could understand macros.
