they may be anything...text file, sas datasets, csv files etc... actually my aim is to write a script which checks if files listed in the text file are available and then check if they belong to any of the groups mentioned in a list file and then say authorised if belong to any one group and say unauthorised if it doesnt belong to any group

Please give us samples of input files and show us the output you want to get when given those input files. Please use code tags to demarcate the input and output files.

Don,
Actually i do not have input or output files i can provide. But i can explain you what i need. i just need a script which when run should take the text doc(contains list of files which are to be copied) as input and then each file has to be checked to see if they belong to any of the 5 groupnames that we are going to mention in the other list document, id they belong to any of the group, then they should be copied to destinated location, If not we just have to ignore those files.
