Hi Dave,

Assuming that your data has column headers and therefore the data starts on
row 2 then in cell B2 of Sheet2 insert the following formula and copy it down
the column.

=VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet1!\$A\$2:\$B\$9,2,FALSE)

However, the above formula will return #N/A for each date that does not have
a matching value. The following extension of the formula will display a blank
cell for the non matching dates. Note the formula is one line and you might
need to edit it in the formula bar to remove a line ffed if you copy and
