Comparing two excel files

Last Modified: 2020-10-02
I need to compare two excel 2016 files and it seems to be a lengthly process and I know there's a faster better process.  I'm currently using the following process...

Step 1:  I need to match the name from spreadsheet A to spreadsheet B.

Step 2:  Once I find the matching names, I need to confirm if Spreadsheet A's column "P" matches to Spreadsheet B's column "X" for example.  I need to do this for almost 500 users and it took me almost a day of nonstop typing and searching last month.

I think there's more to this and I know there are some Exel gurus out there.  Help please.
