Project Description

I have an Excel file that has a list of U.S. hospitals (first worksheet of Excel file). Each hospital has a unique ID (second worksheet of Excel file). I need someone to link the hospitals in the first worksheet to the second worksheet in order to populate the "Provider Number" field.

I started to do this manually and realized a database programmer could do it more efficiently by writing some queries. Here's my logic:

1. Match by hospital name, address, city and state

2. If address, city and state are not available, research by phone number.

3. If #1 and #2 aren't available, then look at domain name within email address

The project objective is to try and populate as many of the blank Provider Number (Column C) fields in the first worksheet.
