Hello Experts,

I have a csv file lets say X with one column called product name. it has 70 rows. that CSV is standard. I created another script it does lot of stuff and generates csv file lets say Y. Y has several headers, but one of them is Productname, and status how can I match the 2 columns when ever any item from X falls in Y and status is failed, print out the whole row.
Is that possible?

Thanks in advance.
