Need a vlookup or any other way to transfer the data from source "data sheet" to "master sheet". Marked the column with yellow color to highlight the column where the data need to be reflected. I don't need the data with 100% match as sometimes "company name" is slightly different on both the sheet. But need the closest match for the data to ensure accuracy. hope I have explained it clearly
