Take Name from 1st record in File1 (POS 12 lenght 30) and find a match on the Name in File2 (POS 1 Lenght 30),
If matched, then copy the data from of File2 (pos 31 lenght 9) bytes and append them to the full record from File1 to create output File 3
Now take Name from 2nd recond in File1 and start at beginning of File2 and look for match...then create File3 the same way as before
Now take Name from 3rd recond in File1 and start at beginning of File2 and look for match...If cannot find a match then just take full file2 and write out with 'NO MATCH' appended.
