Subject: matching records in SPSS

I have two related data files (say, A and B) in text format. Some fields (or
variables) have common records in both files; e.g., ID fields in both files
have about 70% of same IDs along with other records for each case (or row).
I need to incorporate these two data files into one using this common
variable, ID. How can I do that without losing cases that do not have
matching IDs in either file A or B? Your help would be very much
P.S. How do I subscribe this listserv?
