I have an Excel Sheet with two worksheets.

Worksheet1 and Worksheet2 are tables. I created a relationship between the two tables. I need to populate a column in Worksheet2 with data from Worksheet1 based on the relationship. See attached file for illustration.

This assumes the data is in colums A to C. Place in C2 in Sheet2 and copy down.

=VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!$A$2:$C$5,3)

BTW $A$2:$C$5 is the range of the data on Sheet1.

If the number of rows of data on Sheet1 may change over time then select the data and create a named range with the formula =OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$2,0,0,COUNTA(Sheet1!$A:$A),3). That will enable the named range to dynamically change with the number of data rows. Give it a name like LookupRange and then your formula on Sheet2 can be
=VLOOKUP(A2,LookupRange,3).

After some more digging around, the error I was getting was due to a cells formatted as text.. After converting all the data in column A to number, the formula worked.. Thanks.
