Subject: [Eril-l] OpenRefine again
Hi all – I’ve now used OpenRefine to create one file that is an ISBN|a index of my print books, and a second file that is an ISBN|z index of my ebooks. Now I want to ompare the files, which may or may not be something you can do in OpenRefine.

In Excel, I would do a VLOOKUP on the cells in the print-ISBN|a column into the ebook-isbn|z.  How can I do a comparable thing in OpenRefine?
