Power How to extract information from two files with data range

Hi,
I want to make a query about extracting data from two files that both have data ranges.
the data that i want to extract; when there is matching between file1 column 2 is equal to file2 column2 , and file1 column 3 and column 4 is within the range of file2 columns 3 and 4. I would like rows (whole string from file2 which matched to be printed and discard the rows that did not matched).

Example:


file1:
Code:
 
A 1 10 13
B 1 50 52
C 3 100 110
D 3 707 720

file2:
Code:
 
Audi 1 30 51 Expensive Red 4DOORS
Merc 1 2 9 cheap blue 2DOORS
Benz 1 51 100 
Pejo 3 90 200 affordable green 2DOORS

output file required:
(only matched files from file1 that lies within file2 if not I do not need them)
Code:
 
B 1 50 52
Merc 1 2 9 cheap blue 2DOORS
Benz 1 51 100  
(space)
C 3 100 110
Pejo 3 90 200 affordable green 2DOORS

or
Code:
 
B 
Merc 1 2 9 cheap blue 2DOORS
Benz 1 51 100 
(space)
C 3 100 110
Pejo 3 90 200 affordable green 2DOORS

thanks in advance
