    Formula to extract new account number

    I have a spreadsheet containing old account numbers in Col A and description in Col B called new account numbers

    I have data in the source workbook containing new account numbers in Col A and descriptions in Col B

    I would like a formula in C in workbook called "New account numbers" to extract the new account numbers from the source workbook

    I have attached sample data

    Is this what you mean? I put this in C2 of New Account Numbers workbook and filled down.

    =INDEX('[Source Workbook.xlsx]Sheet1'!$A$1:$A$13,MATCH(B2,'[Source Workbook.xlsx]Sheet1'!$B$1:$B$13,0),1)

    I suspect this is NOT what you want because some of the same descriptions have different new account numbers. So, how do you differentiate?

    Thanks for the help. Will test and see if there is a way to differentiate the account numbers
