Hi Experts:

I have an excel files.  There are 10 columns in each file (1 worksheet).  Columns in file 1 and file 2 are the same but the data is slightly different.  

Is it possible to compare the 2 files and highlight (color) the rows or cells with a difference?  
Is it possible to reach to a solution with a vbscript?  

Thanks in advance.

Don't know about VB script, but I think 2013 does it native.
