Searching for Multiple texts in a file

Hello guys,

I hope anyone can help me with this ...

I have a file in which i have around 6000 lines of same format text like


1234567
2345678
3456789
....................

Now what I have to do is that there I have to search these numbers in another file which contains hundreds of thousands of records...

How can I search these numbers one by one and if found in that file print it to another output file.

Please help me with this problem.

Code:
grep -f file1 file2 > file3

where file1 has entries you want to search for
file2 is the file to want to search
file3 the ouput file
