In this VLOOKUP tutorial, we look at how to use the VLOOKUP function to compare two lists or columns of data in Excel.

If you want to save yourself a huge amount of time in Excel when reconciling data, it’s worth taking the time to learn how to use VLOOKUP to compare two lists or columns of data.

For example, maybe you are an accountant who keeps a record of all invoices generated by a client. The client also keeps their own lists of invoices. At the end of the year, the client sends their invoice log to their accountant for reconciliation.

In this scenario, the accountant could print out both lists and spend time with a big yellow highlighter, marking invoices that are missing from the client log. A more efficient approach would be to use VLOOKUP to run a comparison.
