Search Table Field For A Match In Script

Hi, hope you clever guys out there can give me some advice as I'm really struggling to do the following. I have a table loading in a script and want to do a lookup from one column to another and return the value in a different column if its a match. So to simplify if I have a table that looks like this:

RecNoDescriptionRecordLink
1Apple 
2PearCherry
3Banana 
5Orange 
6BerryApple
7PlumOrange
8Cherry 

 

I want to look for the value in "RecordLink" to see if matches a value in "Description", if it does return that "RecNo" in a new column like the below:

RecNoDescriptionRecordLinkLink_RecNo
1Apple  
2PearCherry8
3Banana  
5Orange  
6BerryApple1
7PlumOrange5
8Cherry  

 

Thank you in advance, Simon.
