Hi,
I have two xls:

test1.xls one looks like :                 test2.xls second looks like;            

emplid       date                           emplid     date         addres1  city
                             
123         2016-01-01                    123         2016-01-01      112      111
123         2015-01-01                    123         2015-01-01
123         2014-01-01                    123         2014-01-01
234         2015-01-01                    123         2014-01-01
234         2015-01-01                    234         2015-01-01      222       444
345         2011-01-01                    345         2011-01-01
                                                       345         2011-01-01
                                                       345         2011-01-01      444       555


Idea is look at test1.xls and based upon emplid and date just pick that rows from test2.xls.

test2.xls has more rows but we need to compare and filter test2.xls just based upon emplid and date.


end result should be:



test3.xls          

emplid     date         addres1  city
                             
123         2016-01-01      112      111
123         2015-01-01
123         2014-01-01
234         2015-01-01      222       444
345         2011-01-01

How should double entries be handled?

For example emplid 123 with date 2014-01-01
and emplid 345
