Merging two Matrices

Hi,

I got two files, one file consisting of 10000 records, with first
column starting from 1 and ending at 10000. the other file consists of
5000 records, with first column values changing ranging between 1 to
10000 (some of the values might miss in between). i need to search
both these files, match the values in the first column and write in
another file. is there any efficient way i can write a program in
visual basic ?

Thanking you,
Regards,
Ratnakar Pedagani

Sort both files first
- sometimes making a third merge file and sorting that is the fastest
