Compare In 4 Easy Steps

  1. Select Files to Compare
    Select two comma-delimited files with the same column headers. The ID number of each file is used to match the records between the files.

  2. Select Key Fields
    After selecting the files that need to be compared, select a key field by using the options available (column headers from the files). More than one field can be selected.

  3. Select Output Options
    The output file will contain more columns than the original files being compared. This allows the user to filter files that have differences in datasets and decide how to deal with the identified discrepancies.

  4. Compare Output In Excel
    The output highlights the discrepancies between files and provides users with information such as the number of records in each file, the number of unique records between the two files, the number of differences detected, and the total number of warnings (e.g. records with identical ID numbers).

  Compare has greatly reduced the amount of time I need to analyse “before” and “after” files for our semi-annual upgrade testing. It allows me to quickly focus on where the differences in data are and easily code them as “explainable” or “unexplainable”. -Lisa, Senior Business Analyst – Retail
