I have searched high and low and have not found a great answer. Maybe someone here can assist?

The low-down:

CSV file database export with category names from my ecommerce site.

column 1 (Name) column 2 (ID)
super soakers 153
shoes 188
bottles 297

CSV file import file

column 1 (ID) column 2 (product name)
super soakers Big Super Soaker
shoes Black shoe with no laces
bottles Jim Beam Bottle

The need:
I need for file 2 (the import file) to know and change the value of column 1 to be the value of column 1 in the file 1 (export file) so that the 5k products that I have with over 200 categories can be done in one quick swoop.


I'm willing to create random columns with the column 1 and 2 from file 1 into file 2 just so I dont have to search in other sheets or files.

The outcome (import):
column 1 (ID) column 2 (product name)
153 Big Super Soaker
188 Black shoe with no laces
279 Jim Beam Bottle
