123 aaa 21 100 RJY
234 bbb 31 200 RMY
345 ccc 21 300 SJY
456 ddd 41 400 pqr
i want to compare the file (say COMPAREFILE ) which is below :
I need the following output file (sayOUTPUTFILE) as below :
( ie for file COMPAREFILE i need column 2, column 4 ie name and loan from source file )
ie output file required is to be like below :
123 aaa 100
345 ccc 400
Till now iam using the following method.
