    then, once I've put the two side-by-side, I can eliminate the redundant column like this:

            .Range("K2:L2").Copy .Range("F2")
            For i = 3 To Lastrow
                MatchRow = 0
                On Error Resume Next

                On Error GoTo 0
                If MatchRow > 0 Then
                    .Cells(i, "K").Resize(, 2).Copy .Cells(MatchRow, "F")
                End If
            Next i
        End With
        Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    End Sub

    hey thanks for the quick reply! gotta ask a REAL newbie question though where can I enter code in excel mac 2008? I also have excel mac 2011 on my work computer.

    I know how to work with code in general, so what you gave me isn't foreign, i just don't know where to enter it in excel, never tried before

    Excel Mac 2008 doesn't support VBA does it? I think it was taken out then put back in 2011.

    Just add it into a standard code module in the VBIDE.
