Desired output would be for file2: ABCD-123 FGH. There are multiple ones though. So it would be:
ABCD-123 FGH and BCDE-345 JKL etc.
Not using sed because each instance is unique. Not sure if I'm being clear.

Just looked at my response, let me re-phrase it.
Desired output would be
ABCD-123 AAA
ABCD-456 BBB
ABCD-789 CCC
But these would appear in different places in the text file. Hope this is clearer and I do appreciate the help.
