Compare Excel files and Updating

have been asking this question but due to the vague nature of the question I am not getting what exactly I am looking for.
I have come up with a mechanism how I want it and I will detail it down now. But to understand it you should open both links of the excel sheets.

http://socr.uwindsor.ca/~choudh8/output.xls
http://socr.uwindsor.ca/~choudh8/dummy.xls

As you see in the output.xls some data is sitting there. Please notice for every IPD file path there is a data. It Contents, Number of Records and Size.
Notice in the other file dummy.xls Contents are already there. All I need is to transfer these records and file sizes for every file. With the file name on top and its data underneath and then it moves towards right
Here is the Mechanism
IF{ @ column A of output file the script sees a path to IPD file
GO TO {dummy.xls on column B first row and copy/paste the IPD file name and in the next row copy/paste (Number of Records and Size)
GO back to output.xls
Match the contents underneath this IPD file
IF {the contents match place its data in front of the matched contents}
ELSE{try to match the next content (If it macths place the data otherwise move forward}
I guess    FOR LOOP    will be used
Do this process until the script hits the BLANK row (as seen in the output.xls file)
Go back to the first IF statement and do the exactly same process.
THE ONLY DIFFERENCE WILL BE THIS TIME THE IPD FILE NAME SHOULD BE COPY/PASTED TO THE NEXT COLUMN AND SO ON UNTIL THERE ARE IS NO DATA LEFT IN THE OUTPUT.XLS
To further understand the last point suppose the first IPD data copy/pasted in from Column B to C then next data should be from Column E to F and so on.

Asalam Alaiekum,

I have uploaded a zip file to the question, it has 2 folders
1. oldFileswithMacro : your 2 files with the VBA code imported but not run (so you could run it for your self)
2. Result Files : the same files in the oldFileswithMacro folder but with the VBA code run at least twice

To download the file, you must be logged into EE-Stuff. Here are two pages that will display your file, if logged in:
