I have asked this question previously in the context of two spreadsheets.

I know now that I can migrate my spreadsheets to BASE and with minimal fuss make it work for me.

I have two sets of records. My Master database and a monthly update that reflects additions, deletions and changes accumulated by another party over the past month along with unchanged records from the previous month.

I need to compare the two sets of information to update my Master file which is more comprehensive then the monthly update. I do not want to make these comparisons manually - there are in excess of 2000 records in each file.

Each record is of the format
Field 1. Master Number (assigned by another agency)
Fields 2-30. Various data formats

If a record, as determined by the Master Number field, exists on both sheet 1 and sheet 2, I would like to be able to compare the similar fields, field by field. If the field contents of one record are not identical to the corresponding field in the similar record in the other file, I would like to be able to have this record brought to my attention with anomalies highlighted

If a record, as determined by its Master Number, is in one sheet and not in the other I would like this anomaly brought to my attention also

Is there a way that this can be done?
