Yes. But he wants to take a portion of the line he is reading, get a record from that file based on the portion of the line, and use a value in that file for his replacement value. It's not a replace xx with yy situation.

Sorry, then I misunderstood your comment. What you write sounds like a scenario for awk but I'm not fluent with it.

Funny fact: Awk has been compared to ancient RPG versions, because of the implicit cycle logic. Awk also reads until EOF and does stuff with the data. :-) I can't recall where I read that, though.
