I have two data tabs for survey responses - the first shows the full set of exepcted responses an which office they are from

HMIP  LDU
1     Leeds
2     Leeds
3     Leeds
4     Leeds
5     Wakefield

The second those that have actually responded and I need to get their office location next to the ID:

HMIPID  WYLDU
1   
2   
3   
5   

I have hundreds and will be doing this a lot so any help appreciated!
