Could anybody please help me to get a SAS prorgam for the following requirement,

I need to merge two files in SAS,
My 1st file is of LREC 10 bytes and 2nd file is of 10 bytes. The merged file is of 80 bytes.

1st file:
AAAAABBBBB
XXXXXFFFFF

2nd file:
AAAAACCCCC
AAAAADDDDD
AAAAAEEEEE
XXXXXOOOOO

My merged file should look like,
AAAAABBBBBCCCCCDDDDDEEEEE
XXXXXFFFFFOOOOO
the merged file requirement is, when the first 5 bytes in both 1st and 2nd file matches then it has to be merged and written in the merged file. If a correct match is not found it should not be written.

Kindly let me know if any clarification needed.

Abdul, you know the routine. This forum doesn't provide code. Please provide all of the details for the code you've already written, and point out where you have an issue or what specific detail you have a question about.

The SAS Reference has a few nice MERGE examples :

SAS Reference ==> DATA Step
SAS Reference ==> Statements ==> File-handling ==> MERGE
Common Programming Tasks ==> Combining Data
SAS Reference ==> Statements ==> File-handling ==> MERGE ==> with BY

The code is less than 30 lines, including checking that you don't exceed the output file size.
