Hello Experts,

I have 2 files. File1 has 2 columns, A, B and File 2 has 1 Column A. I want to check for values in File2 if it exists is File1, and output the matching line. Could you please assist with a script.

For instance:

File1

Computer1, 1.2.3.4
Computer2, 2.3.4.5

File2

2.3.4.5

The result should be
Compuer2,2.3.4.5

Thanks.

$File2 = Get-Content -Path "C:\Temp\File2.txt"
Get-Content -Path "C:\Temp\File1.txt" | Where-Object {$File2 -contains $_.Split(',')[1].Trim()}

Thanks oBdA. Could you please help me with outputting the ones that don't match as well from file2.

For instance:
File1

 Computer1, 1.2.3.4
 Computer2, 2.3.4.5

File2

2.3.4.5
0.2.3.4

Not matching file should contain 0.2.3.4,
and the matching file should contain

Computer2,2.3.4.5
