    I have two spreadsheets; the first has two columns, UPC and ITEM; the second has many columns of which UPC is one. I need to create a lookup function or something that will insert the value of ITEM from the first spreadshet into a new column I will create in the second spreadsheet based on the UPC matching. I prefer to use Access for these situations but I don't want to do that with this data. Is this easy to do?

    Yes. Give me 5 minutes & I'll post a formula. Or does it have to be "programming"?

    If (on Sheet1) A is the UPC column and B is the Item column, then on Sheet2 use:

    =INDEX(Sheet1!B:B,MATCH(A2,Sheet1!A:A,0))

    (where UPC to be looked up is in Sheet2!A2).
