Find differences between two Excel workbooks or worksheets

Often an Excel spreadsheet gets modified over time and you want to find

out what has changed.

Or you may import data into Excel worksheets and want to see how the
imported data has changed as well.

There is a neat little utility called DiffEngineX which produces
difference reports when run on two different Excel workbooks. It also
automatically copies the workbooks being compared and highlights the
different cells.

It has advanced options such as grouping equivalent changes together
such that one change to a range of cells is reported instead of tens of
separate changes.

Hi,

I have an access database of around 90k records but I need to divide it into 2 excel sheets (still working in xl2003)
I did have limited success with CopyFromRecordset since it only allows for a maximum

I have done that by hand, but I am sure there must be a macro way to it

obviously I hardly know how to use access --

solution can be either a macro in Access or a macro in Excel, but I tried and I haven't managed to import data from the database even through the menus. The database has password and aparently some sort of problem since I miss an access module I think.

hints are welcome!

On Sheet 2 I have a matrix of 1600 rows by 5 columns (however this will grow
in rows and columns). In column C the values are unique (actually Company
symbols).
On sheet 1, I want to enter a number of company symbols (ranging from one to
many)
And then I want to use a 'macro' (or equivalent) to:
- look at the list on Sheet 1
- go to Sheet 2
- Find the same values
- Highlight the entire row(s) and /or copy them
- Paste them to a third sheet
I do not know VBA very well, so any suggestions are very much aprreciated

I am using Excel 2003 (on my PC) and then migrating the result to Office
2004 for Mac.

Does anyone know how to get excel to create the numbers of days difference
between 2 dates and removing the weekends at the same time using a formula?

Hi everyone,

i applied a filter to a column of data then want to find the difference in time between 2 cells (one above the other). problem is, applying the filter messes up the cell references.

after applying the filter, i use this formula for time difference between the 2 cells

=MOD(TEXT(G300,"00:00")-TEXT(G299,"00:00"),1)*1440

with the filter however, what happens is the cell references become jumbled, like

=MOD(TEXT(G300,"00:00")-TEXT(G28,"00:00"),1)*1440

does anyone know how i can force the cell references to be relative, even if i change the filter? thanks in advance!

Does anyone know how to consolidate different Excel sheets containing the same basic template (i.e. same column headers but with a varying numbers of rows) into one Excel file?

I need to find the differences between an excel file that has several thousand rows that is updated and sent to me weekly. The updated file has a revised name to differentate it from the previous update.

I recieve the file generally in a different order than what was previously sent so I always sort on the first column to begin the comparison. The files always have the same columns. The updated file may have added or deleted rows or just changes to some of the columns in a row.

I want to be able to select which columns to compare because there is information in some of the columns that I do not need to know if changes have occurred.
I would like to have the differences to be shown in a new excel file that would show the full row that a change has been made and would also like to have the new file highlite in a color or shading what the change was, i.e. the full row would be highlited if the row was added or deleted, or just the column that was changed in that row.

I have attached three files that show all of the columns that I need to compare and have includded two columns that I do not need to compare i.e. location and employee so that, if possible, these types of columns can be deselected in the compare operation. The three files show the original file, the updated or changed file and finnally the new file that has just the changes highlited with what the changes are.

Thank you.

Is there a way to compare 2 excel sheets (in the same or different file) in order to find out if they are exactly identical !?

What I am looking for is an automatic way to compare (not by sight).

thanks, Michael
