I have two lists:

 lis1= {{8, 11}, {5, 3}, {1, 9}, {7, 2}, {10, 4}, {12, 6}}
 list2= {{1, "1DD"}, {2, "1CD"}, {3, "2DD"}, {4, "2DC"}, {5, "1DD"},{6, 
 "1CD"}, {7, "2DD"}, {8, "2DC"}, {9, "1DD"}, {10, "1CD"}, {11,"2DD"},{12, "2DC"}}

And I need to create a third, replacing elements of list2 in list1 according with the first number, so the out is:

out= {{{8, "2DC"},{11,"2DD"}},{{5, "1DD"},{3, "2DD"}}...}

    $\begingroup$ Transpose /@ Transpose[{lis1, Replace[lis1, Rule @@@ list2, 2]}]? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ if the ordering is irrelevant, you can also use GatherBy[list2, Position[lis1, First[#]][[1, 1]] &] $\endgroup$ Apr 8 '18 at 2:23

I'd make an Association[]:

assoc = Association[#[[1]] -> # & /@ {{1, "1DD"}, {2, "1CD"}, {3, "2DD"}, {4, "2DC"},
                                      {5, "1DD"}, {6, "1CD"}, {7, "2DD"}, {8, "2DC"},
                                      {9, "1DD"}, {10, "1CD"}, {11, "2DD"}, {12, "2DC"}}]

and then

Map[assoc, {{8, 11}, {5, 3}, {1, 9}, {7, 2}, {10, 4}, {12, 6}}, {2}]
   {{{8, "2DC"}, {11, "2DD"}}, {{5, "1DD"}, {3, "2DD"}}, {{1, "1DD"}, {9, "1DD"}},
    {{7, "2DD"}, {2, "1CD"}}, {{10, "1CD"}, {4, "2DC"}}, {{12, "2DC"}, {6, "1CD"}}}

Replace[lis1, # -> {##} & @@@ list2, 2]

{{{8, "2DC"}, {11, "2DD"}}, {{5, "1DD"}, {3, "2DD"}}, {{1, "1DD"}, {9, "1DD"}},
{{7, "2DD"}, {2, "1CD"}}, {{10, "1CD"}, {4, "2DC"}}, {{12, "2DC"}, {6, "1CD"}}}
