Comparing Spreadsheets Between 2 Excel Files

Another great tool from Mapilab, Compare Spreadsheets for Excel is a wonderful tool for professional as well as amateur excel users. It is one thing to create worksheets, another to make them coherent; however, Mapilab takes the cake in coming out with this great Microsoft Office add-on, to compare two different worksheets. The Compare spreadsheets for Excel is truly a one-of-its-kind application and is quite priceless for all those people who keep pouring on worksheets throughout the day.

This tool makes it convenient and saves a lot of time and energy, especially so if the organization depends on excel for most of its financial or statistical analysis. This add-on does not need that the excel sheets be open, which means you can even comparer two excel sheets on two different computers on a network. This can work across geographical boundaries and you can actually compare worksheets on your own VPN or even on a remote computer on the internet.

It is very easy to use, all you need to do is to open the add-on that installs as an independent program, specify the worksheets to be compared along with path and specify the tables or ranges of cells that you need compared. You need to choose aligning parameters (by row and column offsets) and specify the type of values to compare (formulae or values). Specify what you need highlighted (you can specify changes in color/style of background or the cell borders) and how and your complete report is ready in a jiffy.

The Compare Spreadsheets for Excel add-on works well with complete files, complete tables, selected cell ranges and all without opening the excel sheets at all. This does save a lot of time and money. While comparing spreadsheets excel using this add-on to MS-Office, do remember that this is a third party tool and may not be compatible with all versions of the software. The flexibility that this office add-on gives the user is a boon despite the differences and problems that the version differences may create. These differences can be worked around by exporting the excel sheets to a common supported format and comparing them. This does not take too much time and is easier to do than using eyes.

The Compare Spreadsheets for Excel add-on works with all versions of Windows and Ms-Office that have been released after Windows XP. However, it has not been tested with Windows 8. However do not use it with compatible worksheets like those created with help from open-office and other applications.
