 -o, --only-matching
              Print only the matched (non-empty) parts of a matching line, with each such part on a separate output line.

with each such part on a separate output line.
Cannot work in my case:
- I can have a variable number of matching patterns per line in
- Also file1 and contain hundred of names.
I would not know which name from file1 would go with ones from file2.

That's why I need to separate the matching name into separate fields.

This goes through a lot of loops. Might take a lot of time if "" is really big enough.

#! /bin/bash

while read x
    while read f1
        echo $x | grep -q -w $f1
        if [ $? -eq 0 ]
            y=`echo "$x" | sed "s/\(.*\)\t.*$f1.*/\1\t$f1/"`
            while read f2
                echo "$x" | grep -q -w $f2
                if [ $? -eq 0 ]
                    echo -e "$y\t$f2" >>
            done <
    done <
done <

Thanks balajesuri !

I don't know what you mean by "big". contains about 100,000 lines.
I have about 10 different kind of and the same for (up to 500 lines each)

I gonna give a try anyway !

See if this awk fills your requirment :
split($3,a,","); for (i in a) vl[a[i]] = $1 FS $2 FS vl[a[i]]
if ( idx in vl ) {
	final[vl[idx]] = final[vl[idx]] OFS idx
	for ( z in final )
	print z FS final[z]

Save it as program.awk and run :
awk -f program.awk

Also, you have a typo in, i belive K-ent shoud be K_ent

Hope it works for you

Thanks guys for your help !

@ balajesuri:
It doesn't work properly.
It returns only the entire first matching line, and add a 4th field with the match from only
db1   0001   A_ent,B_ent,C_ent,D_ent   C_ent

---------- Post updated at 07:45 PM ---------- Previous update was at 06:46 PM ----------

@ Peasant
It almost works.
It has to return lines with matches from the 2 files or nothing (if it finds names from 1 of the 2 files only, it should return nothing)

A real example.
db1	12665591	LFTY2_ent,SNF5_ent,SMRC1_ent,ACL6A_ent,SMRD1_ent,SMRC2_ent,ARI1A_ent,ARI1B_ent,SMRD2_ent,ENL_ent
db2,db3,db1,db4,db5,db6	7682714,16094384,15570572,16713569,15144186,10066823,9183008	LYN_ent,HCLS1_ent
db7	68465376,76987269,3877	AKT1_ent,AKT2_ent,AKT3_ent,ARAF_ent,ARNT2_ent,ARNT_ent,BRAF_ent,CBP_ent,CDC42_ent,CRKL_ent,CRK_ent,CUL2_ent,EGLN1_ent

db1	12665591	ACL6A_ent	SMRD2_ent
db7	68465376,76987269,3877	BRAF_ent	CUL2_ent
