    Return Cell Address (2003 sp3)

    I have 2 separate spreadsheets where I need to find a value in the second book that exists in the first. I have no problem doing that using a vlookup. My problem is that the 2nd book where I'm looking for the data is quite large and the value could be anywhere on the sheet. I need to be able to either return the cell address of where the value was found or to highlight the value in the 2nd book. I need to apply this formula to an entire column of data. Any thoughts?

    =VLOOKUP(A1,Lease!$G$2:$G$47298,1,FALSE)

    The address can be obtained from:
    ="Lease!G"&(Match(A1,Lease!$G$2:$G$47298,FALSE) +1)
