I have two excel sheets  TagDesign and TagActual    There are many entries which are similar but slightly different  (For example TG-1234 and TG1234)
Can we have a list in excel  showing the entries  with difference in just one character
(It can be MS Access or Sql Server or a small macro by which I can get this result)

  The typical result I look will be something like
   Tag design        TagActual
       TG-1234          TG1234
       P#3456            P3456
       PVT 12             PVT-12        ( Space and hyphen)
