That sounds like the VLOOKUP() function.

=vlookup(<data source>,<lookup range>,<column>,<exact>)

In this case <exact> would be false because you want to find an exact match. There is good detailed help in Excel.

If you have any problems, feel free to create an example of what you are doing and post it here.

Or a combination of the functions INDEX and MATCH.
For the VLOOKUP function, the lookup value needs to be in a column left of the value you want to return, whereas with the INDEX / MATCH function the lookup value can be in any column.

For an example and explanation, check this link.

As Brian B said, if you post an example of your data, we could help you create a formula suited for your dataset.
