    Testing of Reports

    I have two sets of reports one using Business Objects and the other using Microsoft Reporting Services.The general format of the two are pdf and excel.I have found out tools that will convert the pdf to excel so that I have two reports in excel format to check for data accuracy.

    What would the best way to compare these two files? Are there any tools that I can use to compare the two excel files?

    You could try developing an Excel macro that would read and compare the data.

    You could look at the download from the following site. I haven't used it but it looks like what you could be after.

    Re: Testing of Reports

    I didnt find the link to the software itself, the site download links for notes and white papers.
    I have looked up a few other such softwares, thank you.

    You have to follow the instructions - it does lead to a download as I did this myself to look at the software.

    Re: Testing of Reports

    Use windiff tool, which is a freeware.. though i never used it.

    I Generally use Visual Source safe to compare files... [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
