Pulling cell value from another table

Hello I had searched the forum but cannot find an answer, hoping someone can help. 

I have multiple table entries for peoples names in  table 1 and in another table 2 I only have their name once. 

 

In the table with multiple name entries I have one row that contains their age but it is missing from the other rows and also from the other table. How do I lookup the first table and pull the age and paste in the second table please?

Thanks,

the best way to do this is to join the tables via a one to many relationship  between the names (ideally if you had a personid that would be better)

 

once you create that relationship you can pull data from both tables in a visual as they will be linked.

 

what do you need from table 1?

 

here is more information on how to do it;
