how to update accountid to the contacts using dataloader

Hi All,
We have a requirement where we need to merge two accounts. Master account has few contacts and other one has few. 

Once we merge the accounts, I think related contacts will not added to Master account. If it is not then how do we update accountid to existing contact using Dataloader / import wizard?

Please let me know.


Export all the the master account and related other account Id in excel sheet.

Then using vlookup in excel relace all the account id to related master accountId and import it using Dataloader.
