How to Compare Two Lists

 

To compare two lists, click 'Tools > Compare'. Choose the lists that you want to compare by selecting different Workspace page-names in 'Compare Lists > List A' and 'Compare Lists > List B', then click the 'Compare Lists' button. When two lists are compared, the difference lines in the original Workspace pages will be color-highlighted. Note that this color-highlighting doesn't alter the text in any way. You can step through the differences found in List A or in List B by first selecting that page as the current page in the Workspace, and then stepping with the First/Next/Prev/Last buttons.

 

After comparing two lists, the results of the task will be opened in a new Workspace page. You can choose exactly what data is shown by selecting an option in the 'Compare Options' panel:

 

    Fully Merged - Contains every unique line from List A and List B

 

    Common in Both - Contains every unique line that is found in both List A and in List B

 

    All Differences - Contains every unique line that only appears in List A or in List B

 

    Unique in A - Contains every unique line that only appears in List A

 

    Unique in B - Contains every unique line that only appears in List B
