What if I have other variables besides city and income in dataset A and dataset

A (i.e. I want to leave alone the rest of the variables in dataset A)?

Then make a copy of dataset B, keep only the desired variables (city and income?), sort it appropriately, save it as Bpartial, and follow the prior instructions with Bpartial in place of B.
