    Importing data from a new file to current file

    I have two csv files (A & B)

    A file has 10 columns all of which I need for my job (in order as I require)
    B file has 25 columns out of which I need only 10 columns for my job (not in order)


    I need to append contents from file B under file A with matching the columns. What would be the optimal solution to achieve this ?

    Thank you

    Attachment contains A & B files and the AFTER file which has the desired results required.

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and then scroll down to Manage Attachments to open the upload window.

    1) Assuming FileA & FileB are in the same folder.
    2) Select FileA first and then FileB
