Please see attached...

I have two Excel columns containing email addresses.
I need to run a function to make them line up, using column A as the master, search column B for the same address, then move it to the same row.

I cant just sort the two columns as there are addresses missing, so I want to be able to see the blanks.

Thanks in advance folks...

If both the columns have the same values and each values from column A exists in column B and assuming your data in column A starts from A2, then why not just place the following formula in B2 and copy it down?

=A2

Move the values from column B into another column, lets say D, then use this formula in column B:

=IFERROR(VLOOKUP($A1,D:D,1,FALSE),"")

Copy down and then copy and paste values.

Those where this is no match will be blank.
