how to compare recordset of 2 stored procs?

I have a vendor deliver a new version of a sql DB. basically we had a vendor take our DB and optimize it totally. the thing is the stored procs need to be sure to return the exact same result set to the application.

how can I test this? any tools, ideas?

i need more details...

how can you tell if each cell in the result is the same or not.

also what are the exact steps to get the recordsets out of SQL and how.
i know you can run the proc and get results in SQL studio, but th epaoblem is to compare results or many many procs.

Forgot to mention, if you procs have fields like modify_date or timeStamp (any field that is supposed to change during every run), make sure you do not include them in the comparison.
