    Default Compare Worksheets Limitation Problem

    Is there a way to compare worksheets using more than (3) filters.

    I have (3) different worksheets with (9) columns to compare data to find difference. When I use the compare worksheet option, I only have (3) Compare Column selections [Group By, Then By, Then By].

    Please advise an easy way to compare the entire (9) columns in the (1st) worksheet against the (2nd) worksheet's (9) columns.

    Try combining columns and then comparing on the combined columns.

    Use Easy-XL -> Columns -> Combine Columns

    This will combine the columns that you specify into a new column called "CombinedColumns". If you're combining numeric columns, make sure that you use a text separator like "_" so that Excel doesn't try to interpret the resulting combined numbers as one large number.
