$avFile1 = _FileReadToArray($File_1)
$avFile2 = _FileReadToArray($File_2)
$hFile3 = FileOpen($File_3, 2)
$x = $avFile1[0]
If $avFile2[0] < $x Then $x = $avFile2[0]

For $n = 1 To $x
      FileWriteLine($hFile3, $avFile1[$n] & " " & $avFile2[$n])
Next

FileClose($hFile3)

:)

Argh, did it but went afk for a minute. Psalty beat me.

Here is what I did:

#include <file.au3>
Dim $as_File1, $as_File2
_FileReadToArray("file1.txt",$as_File1)
_FileReadToArray("file2.txt",$as_File2)

Dim $i_Count
For $i_Count = 1 To UBound($as_File1)-1
    $as_File1[$i_Count] &= " " & $as_File2[$i_Count]
    If $i_Count = Ubound($as_File2)-1 Then Exitloop
Next

_FileWriteFromArray("File3.txt",$as_File1,1)

ShellExecute("File3.txt")

Hope that helps.
