I also have old master file in excel, contains cust id, name and current balance, here is the sample:

Do you have any code for this or do you expect it to be done for you? If you have a specific problem then we would be happy to help but this site is not here to get your work/homework done for you!

If you found the answer, please post it here rather than delete the question. It may be valuable for other users. You can always have a moderator reduce the points on this question to zero so you don't lose out by it. Just post a zero point question in http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qList.jsp?ta=commspt with the URL of this question. Obviously you have to post your solution first.

Hi xaveboyz,
It appears that you have forgotten this question. I will ask Community Support to close it unless you finalize it within 7 days. I will ask a Community Support Moderator to:

    Accept aikimark's comment(s) as an answer.

xaveboyz, if you think your question was not answered at all or if you need help, just post a new comment here; Community Support will help you.  DO NOT accept this comment as an answer.

EXPERTS: If you disagree with that recommendation, please post an explanatory comment.
