Excel Compare Review

Tina de Pierre
Track differences and compare Microsoft Excel files and spreadsheets
A review of Excel Compare by Tina de Pierre

Excel Compare is a relatively easy and rather simple tool for comparing the differences between Excel spreadsheets. It can compare between different ranges of multiple spreadsheets and can even present the report as a new Excel spreadsheet. Excel Compare is perfect for analyzing the changes in data over time and can find new, changed and delete data.

Excel compare supports all current versions of Microsoft Excel (or even spreadsheet files created in Open Office Calc, but saved for Excel) and allows you to compare all sheets of the same name in two different workbooks.

If you work with scripts, Excel Compare can also be spawned from the command line.

Excel Compare features and highlights:
  • Supports all versions of Microsoft Excel
  • Compare sheets that contain a database structure
  • Comparison algorithm for the data not containing unique identifiers
  • Compare of any selected ranges of a sheet
  • Compare all files located in two different directories
  • Comparison of all sheets with the same names in two workbooks
  • Creates difference report as a new Excel sheet
  • Difference report keeps the format of the compared data
  • Highlighting the cells that have changed
  • Division of the report into three parts: deleted, added and changed data
  • Automatic addition of user-defined macros to the report workbook
  • Supports project settings
  • Supports cmd.exe options
