Alexander Deliyannis Hi, a couple of questions:

(1) the price for DiffEngineX on the company's website is noted as USD 99 http://www.florencesoft.c...chase.html Is there a difference in licensing or other terms with the product featured here as $120 original price?

(2) In the website it says "Check for duplicates (Excel 2007 only)"; should I assume "Excel 2007 and above"? I.e., does this also work for Excel 2010?

DiffEngineX LLC (1) There is no difference is licensing or functionality. You are buying the full, current version of DiffEngineX here on Bits Du Jour.

(2) Yes, it is Excel 2007 and above. DiffEngineX does not check for duplicates, but if you get Excel to remove them, re-save the file and then do a "diff" with an old, saved copy, then obviously the duplicates will be highlighted. We suggested this as a use, because it is annoying Excel will remove duplicates but not actually give you a list of what it removed.

Avi S Is there full unicode support for non-English values?
Feb 17 2012 at 5:19am Copy Link

DiffEngineX LLC All strings DiffEngineX uses internally are Unicode compliant and use Microsoft libraries.

DiffEngineX works with Excel 2000, Excel 2002/XP, Excel 2003, Excel 2007 and Excel 2010 all of which have slight differences. We can't provide a definitive answer unless you tell us what precise version of Excel you are using and what Microsoft operating system so we can test your particular case.

DiffEngineX is free to use for the first 30 days and so we recommend that you test it on your spreadsheets yourself.

All we can say is that DiffEngineX uses Microsoft's support for Unicode strings. We have rigorously tested DiffEngineX. The whole point of Unicode is to support non-ASCII and non-English characters, otherwise we would all still be using ASCII.

If there is a bug in Microsoft COM passing over certain non-English values from Excel to DiffEngineX, we can't do much about it. Can you be more specific about your platform?

Alexander Deliyannis Thanks; in the case of (1) I would note that the claimed discount is rather misleading, since the original asking price is 99 and not 120. No worries, the final price is more than fair in any case. This tool can indeed save a lot of time and effort.

DiffEngineX LLC Alexander, you are buying in this instance through a software reseller and not directly from us. The software reseller is acting as a software reseller and not a payment processor which has lower rates. The price was originally $120 USD for almost a whole year before today.

I would strongly recommend you investigate all of our payment page and not just the first link. If you looked at the last link on our page you would see the $120 USD price.

The software reseller has to handle purchase orders and handle different and changing VAT rules. For publishers they also have quite a few valued added features such as coupons, different currency support and much more. Obviously this has a cost.

Avi S I'm using Excel 2010.
And, from a programming perspective I'd also be really interested to know: What do you find to be the differences between Excel XP/2003/2007/2010 with regard to unicode support over the COM Interface?
Feb 17 2012 at 5:47am Copy Link

DiffEngineX LLC From a programming perspective, we have found Excel 2007 and Excel 2010 have less idiosyncrasies than Excel 2003 and therefore require less work-arounds.

Avi S I have downloaded and installed the trial version.
1] First of all, I can report that unicode support is stellar. I have many cells with mixed RTL and LTR content in various languages, where I make use of the unicode "right left mark" and "left right mark" codes in order to set the alignment of language-neutral character, and DiffEngine handled it all perfectly.
2] DiffEngine has a wonderful set of options, allowing precise control over how whitespace is treated, allowing specification of the precision of numeric comparisons, and allowing comparisons at the level of the comments and even at the level of the VBA code included with the Excel files.
3] However, one item that I find very sorely missing (unless I just didn't find it?) is the ability to use header fields in the top row and top column in order to identify the fields in the comparison report.
That is, at the end of the comparison, in addition to a color coded spreadsheet, DiffEngine presents a very precise table listing each cell that differed, showing the contents of that cell in file1 and file2. This is very useful; however, the cells are defined with cellcodes like "$A$1", identifying row and column. As all excel users know, the top row is often used as a header to define the meaning of the column, and similarly the first column. Hence, it would make a lot of sense for DiffEngine to provide an option to use this information, defining the field not as "$A$1", but rather as "[RowName][ColumnName]". This would make the output report many times more useful and readable!!
Is there hope for such a feature in the near future?

DiffEngineX LLC With regards point(3), your point is valid, but what you want may be achieved a slightly different way.

Essentially you are the type of user that uses Excel for rows of data. The other type of Excel user, uses mainly formulae based worksheets with lots of calculations.

You look at the difference report and see a vertical list of differences. You would ideally like to see them arranged in rows.

Go to the Extras dialog and turn on "Hide Matching Rows". Run another comparison. Close the difference report (Sheet1) and then just view the two colored worksheets side-by-side. Excel has this functionality under its View tab.

You will then see the differences under the header fields.

This is documented on the following web page.

http://www.florencesoft.c...ences.html

I do understand the point you are making and it is valid.

But if you view the 2 color highlighted worksheets you will see things in a slightly nicer way. You will just see the differences and under the original header row.

DiffEngineX LLC With regards to Avi S's comments we are writing a sister product to DiffEngineX which you may find addresses your points.

Avi S Hi DiffEngineX crew,
Last time this was offered on BDJ you pointed out that this product is not intended for people who want to compare rows and columns of data, but rather for people who work with formulae and calculations. And, at the time, you noted that you are writing a "sister product" that addresses the needs of people who work with rows and columns.
So, what is the status of that sister product? Alternatively, has DiffEngineX been bolstered in the meantime with features with address the needs of those who want to compare textual data rather than numbers?

DiffEngineX LLC The sister product has not been released yet.

As we discussed before DiffEngineX is version control software and over the years we have added functionality to compare defined names, comments and VBA macros i.e. making a spreadsheet compare product rather than an imported rows of data product.

Your issue last time was wanting the difference report to show the differences in rows rather than a cell-by-cell listing.

As I said before looking at the two color-higlighted sheets with "hide matching rows" turned on gives you pretty much that. (The two worksheets have to be pre-sorted first - perhaps using Excel's Data Sort functionality. Also if you are exporting from a database it is easy to make sure the data is pre-sorted.)

As before I suggest you read

http://www.florencesoft.c...ences.html

As you can see from reading that if you use Excel's view side-by-side (available in Excel 2007, Excel 2010 and I think Excel 2003 as well) you pretty much get the results shown in rows.

Just remembering the following:
1) Data has to be pre-sorted
2) Turn on Align Rows
3) Turn on Extras-Hide Matching Rows
4) After DiffEngineX has finished click on one colored sheet and then select Excel's view-side-by-side

There is only so much that can easily be put into one software product. You can see over the years we have added functionality to ignore small numeric differences in 3 different ways, ignore white space is 2 different ways and find character level differences on both the difference report and directly on the workbook copies.

Avi S Hi DiffEngineX,
Regarding the use of your product to compare spreadsheets containing text fields, you noted: "looking at the two color-higlighted sheets with 'hide matching rows' turned on gives you pretty much that."
It is true that this is a step in the right direction, but it still leaves one very serious functional gap, specifically, the inability to use the names in the header row/column in the comparison. That is, on the comparison output sheet, the cells are defined with cellcodes like "$A$1", identifying row and column, rather than using the descriptive information that text-based data sheets almost always have in the initial row and column.
Indeed, this gap in functionality is apparent already in the screenshots that are shown here on the BDJ page: In the second screenshot, there is a database of customers, and the comparison shows discrepancies street names, emails, etc. However, how is the user to know which customer the street names and emails refer to? Each line only has a cell identifier, like $B$4. It would make much more sense to put the name there, e.g., "John" or "Bob".
I understand that you are hoping to cover this in your "sister product", but it's been quite a number of months since I've raised these issues with no such release in the meantime, and therefore I would like to once again strongly suggest that you add the ability to use header row/column data in the comparison chart in order to identify where the discrepancies are. Without that, the product is not very efficient as a comparison tool for text-based data sheets, but the addition of this specific and relatively small feature would turn this into an excellent comparison tool that I would be proud to recommend to my colleagues.

DiffEngineX LLC If you stick to the color highlighted reports, you can have the headers always visible as you scroll up and down, by following the following advice in the below URL.

http://www.mrexcel.com/td0023.html

Do the same for both sheets.

I understand this is probably not want you want, but the color highlighted reports (with hide matching rows) are the best way to see the differences and better than the different report.

We have added too many features to DiffEngineX already. For example it has 2 different row alignment algorithms.

We have customers that have requested 10 different things to be added along with your suggestion.

Given the design of DiffEngineX, it is pratically impossible for us to add these 10 different things (and what you say) to the product as it is. It is easier for us just to create a small, redesigned new product rather than constantly add things to one existing product.

Please be patient. We will be releasing our sister product but it won't be for a 2 - 3 months now.

Rather than constantly kludge on existing features we want to do things properly and that means a new product.

Bruno Verschraegen Interesting exchange of views between Avi S and DiffEngineX LLC.

I can understand DEX's viewpoint but...

a) Not having header information in the comparison chart makes it indeed very hard to interpret. Just this addition alone would make it from a very good product to an absolutely great one (based on the fex expertiments I ran with the trial version last night and thgis morning). On the other hand, there may be times where one would only want to see the column header information (and no row "header" info), whereas for some other people or occasions row headers or the combination would be important. And I can imagine that this would make the addition of this functionality not such an easy thing. The suggested method of comapring coloured cells works pretty well.

b) Yet, how to know if, for one's typical use (we organise events and use ecel extensively), one would be better off with buying the current product or with waiting for the sister product? or would existing users of the current product be able to buy the sister product with a discount?

Still weighing if buying (yet again*) another tool that looks useful. Probably will take the plunge before the deadline.

Bruno

DiffEngineX LLC You can go to options and turn on hyperlinking.

Then each difference on the difference report is linked to the color highlighted sheets and (if you have a recent version of Excel) linked to the original workbooks as well.

So by just one click you can see what exactly the difference is and its context.

Avi should understand that the unique identifer for each row, can sometimes be one column or several columns.

DiffEngineX was first released as a diff algorithmn as applied to Excel. Over time we added features such as comparing embedded Visual Basic code as well and comments and names. It is obvious we were moving in the direction of version control software rather than data comparison.

People did buy DiffEngineX and use it to compare rows. As such we added a second row alignment algorithm and the "hide matching rows" feature. Some people find this very useful.

Please respect our decision. We know that continually adding features to push the software in another direction will ultimately make the product better but it will always be lacking in this direction.

Yes, you can use DiffEngineX to compare rows of data, but this was not what it was primarily written for.

Essentially people purchased our software and used it to compare rows and we entertained them by added a couple of features. Even then adding a second row alignment feature was very, very difficult. It in fact took more thought than it would have taken to write a whole second product that would be better for that task. So we can't keep adding features, because they will always be short of the mark compared to a re-design.

It is not immediately obvious but simply the task of interfacing with Excel in a reliable, error free and fast manner is difficult. There is a huge amount of code simply devoting to making things work and not functionality. As Excel is complex this hidden code grows and grows and has needed to be continually maintained over the years.

It is time now that we stopping adding more and more features to DiffEngineX and write another properly designed software product rather than adding features to what was essentially designed for something else.

Please just wait for us to release our sister product. We can't continue in this fashion.
