  • Excel compare of row adds and deletions shows many differences

    I'm evaluating your Beyond Compare 3 product and when I compare 2 Excel spreadsheets where I simply add or remove a single row the Beyond Compare product is showing many more differences than just that single row add or delete. I really want to just so the row added or deleted as the difference. Is there any option I can configure to get the results I'm looking for?

    I'm using Excel 2003 files (xls) if it matters.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    By default, the first column is the Key column which is sorted and aligned by. If the Key does not match, the rows would not align and they would be marked as a difference.

    A key can be a single column or multiple columns, set in the Session Settings or by right clicking any Header in the main view.

    Would you be able to post or email a full screen screenshot? If you email us at support@scootersoftware.com please include a link to this forum thread. With this we should be able to tell which columns are Keys and why they are not aligning.
