I have two columns of cells. One thousand rows. Every cell has a long text entry in it (around 500 to 900 characters). Each row (of 2 cells) containswhat looks like exactly the same text, but there IS minor differences. How can I cleverly get an output from Excel to bring to my attention what thedifferences are without me having to read each cell and compare it with it's neighbour. The ideal output would be akin to a word markup of redstrikeout and blue insert - but that is a dream result which I cannot think is achieveable. Is there another way. Many thanks. Christine.
