I know that I am meant to show my working however I have none because I cannot find anywhere that can help me with this issue, so I have come to you (the monks) cap in hand to plead for your help.
I have 2 files which have a common field that need to be joined together.
As you can see with the data, there are some fields in file 2 that are not in file1, I need to be able to join both of the second fields together to form a new .csv in this format.
The key fields (field 1 in both files) are to be removed after merging as they are no longer required.
Any entries that do not match file1 are to be removed.
I looked at just pasting the files together but it is too clumsy for what I need to achieve.
If someone could please help as I am at my wits end
