    Hey SARAN89,

    Try the below code assuming you'll place it in the compare output workbook. You need to adjust the blue text based on your files

    Hi Nankw83

    Thanks for your help. Code is working fine, however the file names are not fixed one, it will change every time when i run the macro.
    I will move both workbook A, and Workbook B to new sheet then i will run the VBA code. Can you please help me to make the changes.

    Re: Compare Two Columns in Two different Workbook

    I have changed the code to make the user select the files instead of hard-coding the file path in the VBA code

    Re: Compare Two Columns in Two different Workbook

    What about the range ? Is it always B5 & its current region or do you wish to select the range as well ?

    Re: Compare Two Columns in Two different Workbook

    Did you select a single cell as range ? If yes, then that doesn't make sense to develop the code for unless you need to code to select the current region of that cell for you. If not then could you tell me what happened exactly what is the full error message you are getting

    Re: Compare Two Columns in Two different Workbook

    In case you need to click on any cell of the range instead of selecting manually selecting the current region, you can amend the below line

    Re: Compare Two Columns in Two different Workbook

    No because once you select the range the data is then stored in an array & if you select non-contiguous data the code will not work the way it is expected.
