Simple formula to change 025854858 (widge number) into "Blue Toy" in excel

HI Experts,
I have a simple one here for excel Experts.
I have 12 cells in different rows with different numbers. Each represents a product number.
I want to change the Unit Number into a description based on a worksheet I have will all unit numbers and names set up already.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In your question you say you want to replace the unit (Product?) number with the description but you show some descriptions in column C. This macro changes the Product #s to Descriptions. If instead you want the descriptions in column C, change the B in line 14 to a C.

Sub ReplaceNums()

Dim rng As Range
Dim lngLastRow As Long
Dim lngRow As Long

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

With Sheets("Report")
    lngLastRow = .Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row
    For lngRow = 3 To lngLastRow
        Set rng = Sheets("Data").Range("A:A").Find(what:=.Cells(lngRow, "B"), SearchOrder:=xlByRows)
        If Not rng Is Nothing Then
            .Cells(lngRow, "B") = rng.Offset(0, 1)
        End If
    Next
End With
    
End Sub

Use this in C3, and copy down
=VLOOKUP(B3,Data!A:B,2,0)
