Match columns from two csv files and update field in one of the csv file

Hi,

I have a file of csv data, which looks like this:

Code:
file1:
1AA,LGV_PONCEY_LES_ATHEE,1,\N,1,00020460E1,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,2,00.22335321,0.00466628
2BB,LES_POUGES_ASF,\N,200,200,00006298G1,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,1,00.30887539,0.00050312
201,LES_POUGES_ASF,\N,201,201,00006298G1,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,1,00.30887539,0.00050312


The second file has unique rows and fields(particularly field 2):

Code:
file2:
000116T3,1AA
000117T3,888
000118T3,201
000122T3,2BB


What I am trying to achieve is :-
Code:
if (12th field value in file1='1')
	then 
		if  ( match the 1st field value of the first file with 2nd field value of the 2nd file)
			then replace 6th field value of file1 with 1st field value of the matching row of the 2nd file 
		 else
			do nothing
	else do nothing


Code:
Sample required output:
1AA,LGV_PONCEY_LES_ATHEE,1,\N,1,00020460E1,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,2,00.22335321,0.00466628
2BB,LES_POUGES_ASF,\N,200,200,000122T3,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,1,00.30887539,0.00050312
202,LES_POUGES_ASF,\N,201,201,00006298G1,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,1,00.30887539,0.00050312


Does anyone know of any solution?

I tried to modify a solution which I found in a similar thread named "Matching and Merging csv data fields based on a common field" but in vain Smilie

Thanks in advance

The following awk script seems to do what you said you want:
Code:
awk '
BEGIN {	FS = OFS = ","
}
FNR == NR {
	k[$2] = $1
	next
}
{	if($12 == 1 && $1 in k) $6 = k[$1]
}
1' file2 file1

But, with your sample input files it produces the output:
Code:
1AA,LGV_PONCEY_LES_ATHEE,1,\N,1,00020460E1,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,2,00.22335321,0.00466628
2BB,LES_POUGES_ASF,\N,200,200,000122T3,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,1,00.30887539,0.00050312
201,LES_POUGES_ASF,\N,201,201,000118T3,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,1,00.30887539,0.00050312

which disagrees with the output you said you wanted on the 3rd line. (Nothing in your description talked about changing the contents of the 1st field from "201" to "202" under any circumstances???)

You didn't say what OS or shell you're using. If you want to try this on a Solaris/SunOS system, change awk to /usr/xpg4/bin/awk, /usr/xpg6/bin/awk, or nawk.

You will find are many examples of this kind of join operation.. Try:
Code:
awk 'NR==FNR{A[$2]=$1; next} $12==1 && $1 in A{$6=A[$1]}1' FS=, OFS=, file2 file1

Many thanks to Don Cragun and Scrutinizer.

Both solution's work perfectly for my task.

My apologies for the 3rd line. It was a typo error. Please ignore.

Love them one liners. Smilie

Code:
#!/bin/bash

while read f2
do
    kee2=${f2##*,}
    line=$(grep $kee2 file1)
    if [[ $line && $(echo $line | cut -d, -f12) == 1 ]]; then
        srch=$(echo $line | cut -d, -f6)
        repl=${f2%,*}
        linenum=$(sed -n "/$kee2/=" file1)
        sed -i "$linenum s/$srch/$repl/g" file1
    fi
done < file2
cat file1

output
------
1AA,LGV_PONCEY_LES_ATHEE,1,\N,1,00020460E1,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,2,00.22335321,0.00466628
2BB,LES_POUGES_ASF,\N,200,200,000122T3,0,\N,\N,\N,\N,1,00.30887539,0.00050312

Hi Don Cragun...Need your help again...
I'm trying to modify the script you provided to achieve a similar objective but the script wouldn't work.

I would want the modified script to search sixth field in file1 with 2nd field value of file2 i.e.

if ( match the 6th field value of the first file with 2nd field value of the 2nd file)
assign file1 $13=1 and $14=1st field value of the second file
else do nothing

my modified script looks like this:
Code:
#!/bin/bash

awk '
BEGIN { FS = OFS = ","
}
FNR == NR {
        k[$2] = $6
        next
}
{       if($6 in k) $13 =1;$14=k[$1]
}
1' file2 file1

Something like this?
Code:
awk 'NR==FNR{A[$2]=$1; next} $6 in A{$13=1; $14=A[$6]}1' FS=, OFS=, file2 file1

Otherwise post new samples..
