Adding objects from one array into another array

We start with two arrays (which must have a common element).  I was testing this in work using an Active Directory query and an output from another system.  The object of the exercise is to update one of the arrays with details from a second array using the common element between both arrays.  It sounds pretty straight forward and truth be told, its is.

Below are 2 arrays I have created for the test, copy them locally and try this yourself

Array1.txt

Array2.txt

As you can see the common see both arrays share the “social number” element. I want to add the addresses from array2 into array1 that correspond with the ‘social number’ in both

The example above is very basic but when you are working with very large arrays like your Active Directory contents, the output is very quick compared to running through loops.

  1. Can I simply say what a relief to find somebody that truly understands what they are talking about online.
    You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it
    important. More and more people really need to look
    at this and understand this side of your story. I can’t believe
    you aren’t more popular given that you surely possess the
    gift.
