Compare 2 excel spreadsheets if amatch is found copy certain cells back the original workbook

Hi all,

As the title suggests. I have 2 spreadsheets with different information in both, however their is 1 common value to link the 2 spreadsheets together.

What I want to do is have everything from column B in an array from workbook1, the script would loop through the array searching for that exact value in workbook2 in column A. If that value is found in workbook2, I need to copy information from 2 different cells that relate to that record from workbook2 back into workbook1.

This is what I have so far but, just can't get the copying it the cell values from workbook2 into woorkbook 1.

; Select filepath with message to display in FileOpenDialog.
Local Const $sMessage = "Select workbook filepath."
Local $sFilePath = FileOpenDialog($sMessage, "D:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\", "Excel (*.xls;*.xlsx;*.csv)|", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST)
; Create application object or connect to an already running Excel instance
Local $oAppl = _Excel_Open()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF:", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
;open workbook1
$oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oAppl, $sFilepath, Default, Default, True)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF:", "Error opening '" & $oWorkbook & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
; Select filepath with message to display in FileOpenDialog.
Local Const $sMessage2 = "Select workbook2 filepath."
Local $sFilePath2 = FileOpenDialog($sMessage2, "D:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\", "Excel (*.xls;*.xlsx;*.csv)|", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST)
;open workbook2
$oWorkbook2 = _Excel_BookOpen($oAppl, $sFilepath2, Default, Default, True)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF:", "Error opening '" & $oWorkbook & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
;Read array from workbook
Local $aArray1 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, Default)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF:", "Error reading from workbook." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
; Turn on progress GUI
ProgressOn("Progress", "data washing progress", "0%")
; counts the number of rows in the array
$rows = UBound($aArray1) -1
; script start
for $c = 1 to $rows
; Progress calcualtions
ProgressSet($p,$c-1&" of "&$rows&" records processed")
; Find all id's as per value in column B from workbook in workbook2
_Excel_FilterSet($oWorkbook2, Default, Default, 1, ($aArray1[$c][1]))
If @error Then
_Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook2.Worksheets(1), "AM:AN")
_Excel_FilterSet($oWorkbook, Default, Default, 2, ($aArray1[$c][1]))
_Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook.Activesheet, Default, "P", Default, $xlPasteValues)

Anyone able to see where I have gone wrong or can suggest a better approach to do this?

Do you get an error or does it just not give the desired result?

thanks for taking a look guys, just not the desired result Water.
Junkew good point.

FYI:  I ended up just combining the two workbooks into one and having the data on 2 worksheets, just using the following array formula in excel:

In cell P2 in Sheet1
=INDEX('Sheet2'!AM:AM, MATCH(B2, 'Sheet2'!A:A, 0))

In cell Q2 in Sheet1
=INDEX('Sheet2'!AN:AN, MATCH(B2, 'Sheet2'!A:A, 0))

      Hey Community,

      I woud like to know how i can handle my Problem.
      I have a Excel Data with 362 random numbers.
      For Example:
      1166642335374 1172899897343
      this numbers are a part of the filepath ...example
      as u can see its the first number of the Excel data. After the first 4 numbers it shoud make a "_" than another 5 "_"
      This is my first question. How can i handle this to make it Shell execute.
      Second question:
      If i am in the path.
      For Example:
      the code shoud search for specific PDF Files.
      They are named like: 0050569E364B1ED79B900F73E62660EC.pdf
      the first 15 letters are always the same
      when he found this data he has to copy it on a Folder on the Desktop.
      (There can also be 2 or 3 pdfs in one Folder with this letters)
      Please give me some help :-)

      Hi all, 

      First, I want to give a huge shout-out to the community. I'm completely self-taught, and have never had to actually ask a question before because the forum is that good at answering questions and explaining things. However, I'm kind of stumped here, and I've been stuck on this problem for almost a full day.

      I'm working on a script to populate drafts of deeds at work. I have the main GUI and  a function (ctrl($n) and read()) for adding fields to find and data to replace it with to an array for later use with _word_docfindreplace. All of that works. However, due to the way I have the forms set up, I need to create additional fields and info based on the data that's there. Specifically, if there's only one buyer, I need to add the field [Buyer1&2] and the data in $aArray_Base for [Buyer 1]. I also need to add a field [Buyer 2] and have a blank data set in the next column over in the array, and I need to do the same for the Seller. To this end, the function parties() sets boolean variables $2buyers and $2sellers accordingly. Then, I have buyers() and sellers() to populate the data. 

      The problem that I'm running into is that each function works... when ONLY the buyer 1 name field is filled, and when ONLY the seller 1 field is filled.

      So if I fill Buyer 1 Name and save it, the data is populated correctly. But when I fill Buyer 1 and Seller 1 name, only the buyer 1 data populates correctly. Worse, when I fill several fields, neither populate correctly. I have no idea why this happens. I've added messageboxes to debug throughout the entire process and can't pinpoint what's causing the issue. The entire script is below. The function(s) in question are buyers() and sellers(). Only Sellers() has messageboxes throughout.

      Can someone help walk me through what might be causing this and help me find a solution? Thanks a ton in advance, and sorry for the wall of text.

      Cleaning up some old folders and found this little snippit. Think I was using this back when I was trying to create 2d maps for a game I was making in GDI+ (that never got finished). Pretty straight forward, searches an array for an array.
