Merge and update table from another one table with VLOOKUP


Here I have a VLOOKUP formula that can handle the job.

1. Select one blank cell next to the table 1 which will be updated, for instance, D2, and type this formula =IFERROR(VLOOKUP($A2,'table 2'!$A$1:$C$5,COLUMN(A1),FALSE),""), then drag autofill handle right and down until blank cells appear.

In the formula, $A2 is the first content in the key column you want to update table based on, 'table 2'!$A$1:$C$5 is the new table, COLUMN(A1) is the key column.
