I need to combine two flat files into one using SSIS 2012 Script Task. Both files have one common key column and the contents of the column is unique for each row. I am looking for good and reliable way to combine the two files into one. I hope experts can help me with that. Thank you.

Create connections to both flat files, plus your output file.
Create a data pump that has...
One source component for each source
You may need sort components if the files are not already sorted
One JOIN component to merge the two data streams into one
One destination component for the target file.
