Hi,

Yes, there are a few ways, & some variations will be dependent on which particular version of MS-Excel you are using.

I will assume at least version 2007 (i.e. MS-Excel 2007), I will also assume column 1 is [A], column 2 is [ B ], 3 is [C], & 4 is [D], for ease of reference below.

Place this formula in cell [B1]:
=IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A9,C$1:D$9,2,FALSE),"")

The copy cell [B1] it to your MS-Windows clipboard, & paste down column [ B ] to cell [B9].

Please see the attachment as an example.

Try using the "IF Statement". For example...

=IF(A2=C2,D2,"No Match")
