This Project has Stumped me for the past few days so ill put it up for auction.
What i need to do is take Data From a CSV file which has 3 entries per row and do a search for the second entry in another CSV file. When it finds the match in the second CSV File it needs to Copy out the Last entry in that CSV File (there are 3 total) and Append that information to the end of the corresponding row in the First File. Or it can write the data from both files to a new one it doesnt really matter.
here is an example
File 1 Looks like this:
The Bolded Text is what needs to be matched
**A,SHDN(255),**V-211 AQUEOUS TANK HIGH WEIGHT/LEVEL
When the final Line is written it should look like this:
1,A,SHDN(255),V-211 AQUEOUS TANK HIGH WEIGHT/LEVEL
the data files i attached are named according to this description. they are shortened versions and the program would be best if it could handle file1 sizes up to 200 lines and file 2 sizes up to 20,000 lines.
i also attached my feeble attempts to do this my self and if you can some how make them work more power to you.
