"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,
You have to loop through Sheet 1. For every row, you find out the relevant row in Sheet 2 and list out the difference of two rows after the comparison.

You need to loop through 1st list first, to do the comparison on 2 lists.

i have had answered similar questions countless of times.

please see the VBA solution attached.   also more different ways for different files see my answer in this link


in addition, if your data is not aligned and sorted, then there is a commerial add-in which one of its feature does the alignments of rows. you can have a look into the example and you may try a trial copy from link

if you have excel 2013, then there is a free included feature of compare , see it here

when it comes to excel comparison, no other software can beat the Excel synkronizer. it is the best commercial cheap(onetime payment) software that is very useful. you can test it with download trial of it.  from here  it also aligns, compares, merged and have tons of best features.
