I have two spreadsheets with one thousand lines.

Each has a server name on the left hand side.  

I want to make them just one spreadsheet with the server name on the left hand side.

In database terms, I want to do a 1 to 1 relatoinship on a primary key named "server name"

if it's a 1 to 1 relationship, use a vlookup formula on one of the sheets, referencing the other, eg in sheet1, assuming you put the formula in column L, use:
=vlookup(a2,sheet2!$A$1:$Z$1000,column()-column($L2)+2,0)

then copy to the right as far as you have columns in sheet2 and copy down for as many rows as you have in sheet1.

this assumes:
your server name is in column A,

sheet2 has data on the range a1:z1000,

sheet2 is called sheet2,
you put the formula in column L.
