    Re: Campare two excel files and display true or false

    Ok Here you go, Use the button on the workbook attached to run your test.

    Create a new folder on your desktop and name it "Your Folder"
    This copy the 2 workbooks from your first post in that folder

    open this script and press the test button. I placed a stop command in all you need to do is change the path from my desktop to yours.

    Most likely you will only need to remove the RNG and put your name in.
    an easy way to tell is open the folder you made above and look in the address bar and copy that line and replace it with what is in mine.

    once you have your path in you can remove the stop and press F5

    The script compares the first workbook to the second and the second workbook to the first.

    It places the results in the compare workbook in col A and B and C and D

    The reset just clears the data.

    But it all depends on what your looking to compare,

    Let me know if you need changes.

    Re: Compare two excel files and display true or false

    looks like Application.FileSearch is not supported in 2007...

    any way...

    if column 1 from workbook 1 exist in any column in workbook2 then compare column b if it matches print true with column 1 and 2 else print false with column 1 and 2

    When your profile shows Excel 2003, it's hard for us to guess that you're using Excel 2007.
