I have two files 1 with student name in the first field, having 10 records and blank in the rest of the fields & the second file, also having 10 records having blank in the first field and student details in the second field. I want to splice these files to a single file so that i get the student name in the first field &student detail in the second field.

Code:

file1
aaaaaa  spaces
file2
spaces   1234etyf124
file3
aaaaaa  1234etyf124

There is no common key as of now.But it assumed that both the files are in sorted order.and the first record in the file 1 corresponds to the first record in file 2 and so on.
