Question please help - file merger

I am developing using bourne shell. The problem I have is I want to compare two files with a common field id (like sdiff command). However I don't want to mark the records that are different I want to display the entire record that exist in only one of the files but does not exist in the other file.

Thankyou in advanced.

Try looking up man page for the "comm" command. This may help.
