Hi ,

I have a data which need to be manipulated as below.

filename1.csv
Pat_name,Pat_number,pat_id
raj,123,3
dinesh,,4

filename2.csv
Pat_name,Pat_number
raj,123


compare both files on only same column names and get the desired output .
If the value in rows match = success, else = failure
In this case only 2 columns present in both files (pat_id can be ignored)

output.csv

Pat_name_file1Name,Pat_name_file2Name,Match,Pat_number_Filename1,Pat_number_Filename2,Match
raj,raj,Success,123,123,Success
dinesh,,Failure,,,Success


PS. My original files has around 10 columns .

Thanks
