Join 2 lists using xlCompare

Let review the typical situation: you have 2 lists of database values, and you need to merge them into single list which contains values from both lists.

xlCompare has a command which merges lists of values. To use it you need to compare 2 lists of data you have. Put them on 2 different worksheets and compare.

Command which joins to lists in Excel

This command is applicable to single pair of compared worksheets only. It is visible on the toolbar if you've selected a node under "sheet" node. In this example - old - new.

It joins two lists with database values and puts results into the left sheet. If you need to create a merged list on the another worksheet - you can repeat the operation after switching left and right panes.
