No idea what a vlookup is but you can try:

Code:
$> awk -F, 'NR==FNR {a[$1]=$2; next} a[$1] {print $2,a[$1]}' OFS=, dddd ssss
sajan,charit
doda,gilhotra

Use nawk or /usr/xpg4/bin/awk on Solaris. Moving this thread to the shell scripting area - nothing Solaris specific.

-------------------------

Edit:

With join:

Code:
$> join -t, -1 1 -2 1 -o 2.2 1.2 f1 f2
sajan,charit
doda,gilhotra

As I already wrote, did you try:

?

What about the join I posted?

You are still using no code tags when posting code, data or logs etc. Please do so - you got a PM with a guide. If that is not clear, say so, thanks.
