Hi Lynne, others

First - do you want to do this here or on the Ubuntu forums.. :)

If this where a relational database and two tables (with the same
columns structure) then it is a simple MINUS function:


That statement will return all records in TABLE1 that are not also in

However you have here 2 CSV files, and one of those files IIRC has a
column with a different name.

I don't thin you told folks here about how you are getting the data.

Andreas may have a good way to do that completely in Calc (he is much
better at Calc then I ever will be)

However is this is something you will need to do on a continuing basis
(with new CSV files arriving from time to time) then I would set this up
under Base and attach the two CSV files as TEXT tables. With that done,
then you can use the MINUS command.

It's a little bit of work to set up the connection, but one done you can
reuse it just by overwriting the source files with the data as need.

*How do I check for duplicates in a data base using another data base ?


FROM "A" JOIN "B" ON "A"."ID" = "B"."ID"

returns all rows from table A with an equivalent ID in table B.
