Comparing two similar Excel spreadsheets is a complex task, especially if they have hundreds of rows and columns. In this case, manual comparison becomes an exercise in futility and a potential source of errors that may lead to unwanted or even dangerous consequences. Therefore, if you need to compare two Excel documents containing scientific, statistical or financial data, the best way to do it is to use specialized software that will ensure accuracy, completeness and make your life a lot easier by saving an ample amount of time and effort.
DiffEngineX is just what you’ve been looking for to compare Excel spreadsheets with any structure and of any size. This intelligent tool compares Excel workbooks (XLS, XLSL, XLSM and XLSB files) as well as individual worksheets quicker and more efficiently than any other program on the market. According to internal benchmarks, DiffEngineX can find differences in two 4 MB spreadsheets with thousands of cells in less than 30 seconds. However, the program does not compare cell values only — the range of objects it supports spans from constants and formulas to cell comments and VBA macros. Comparison quality and methods are fully adjustable — for instance, you can compare values to a particular number of decimal places, compare formulas or their calculated values, find differences in numeric values that exceed a user-defined percentage threshold and so on. The program supports intelligent highlighting and grouping of differences, making it a lot easier to browse the resulting spreadsheet. At the end of each comparison, DiffEngineX generates a detailed report on the differences it detected with optional links to individual differences in the workbooks being compared.
DiffEngineX is by far the fastest and most efficient tool of its kind, so if you deal with large arrays of data, it’s definitely worth a try!
