    Obviously the two excel files don't match.

    If I compare the two excel files directly, I get:

    Thanks for the report. I've reproduced this issue and opened a tracker entry to investigate. The issue is the conversion error reporting as equal. Do you have other Excel files (simple test files) that can open and show data in the file view? This should work generally.

      I got a weird result, as the attached shows. Actually the two files are identical.

        Thanks. I haven't seen this specific failure (only one fails of equal files), but there are issues with the Conversion Error handling which is leading to this bad state. We'll look into it. In the meantime, if either side has a Conversion Failure, the overall result is incorrect.
