EXCEL 2010 compare 2 columns and if theres a match then enter a lookup value into another column

Hi

I have a spreadsheet and i want to compare 2 columns (A and D) A has 40000 rows and D has 38 rows.

I want to compare D to A and  if the the value in D is found in column A then show a corrosponding look value (which is in columb B) in column H, if there is not match then show false.

Example

A         B               C              H
1        111            2             133
2        133           14            False
5






Whats the best way of doing that?
