Comparing Excel Files Using Ranges

When comparing Excel files, the simplest approach is to select the two files to compare and then press [Compare]. Excel File Compare subsequently compares all the sheets in the two files and reports the differences.


If the two files contain tables where records may have been added or removed then this approach is not effective as is shown in the following fragment:

  A B C D E
1  Product ID  Product Name  Quantity Per Unit  Unit Price  Units In Stock
2  1  Chai  10 boxes x 20 bags  18  39
3  2  Chang  24 - 12 oz bottles  20 19  17
4  3  Aniseed Syrup  12 - 550 ml bottles  10  13
5  4  Chef Anton's Cajun Seasoning  48 - 6 oz jars  22  53
6  5  Chef Anton's Gumbo Mix  36 boxes  21.35  0
7  6  Grandma's Boysenberry Spread  12 - 8 oz jars  25  120
8  8 7  Northwoods Cranberry Sauce Uncle Bob's Organic Dried Pears  12 - 12 oz jars 12 - 1 lb pkgs.  40 30  6 15
9  9 8  Mishi Kobe Niku Northwoods Cranberry Sauce  18 - 500 g pkgs. 12 - 12 oz jars  97 40  29 6
10  10 9  Ikura Mishi Kobe Niku  12 - 200 ml jars 18 - 500 g pkgs.  31 97  31 29

The only real difference found is line 3 unit price. From line 8 on, every cell is considered different. While this is true, it is not very informative. We want to know that the only difference at line 8 is that a line has been added (or removed) and that for the rest there were no differences. To achieve this we have to specify that we are dealing with tables, see Comparing tables in worksheets )
