Compare Cols


Creates a new column with a comparison of two other columns.






Select the two columns you wish to compare as Column 1 and Column 2.



Number, date and text values are treated differently. Any values that can be converted to a number will be treated as a number. Any values that match the supported date formats in Preferences will be treated as a date. All other values are treated as text.

Comparisons of text are case and whitespace sensitive. You can use Case to change the case, Whitespace to remove whitespace before filtering and Replace to get of other unwanted characters (e.g. whitespace inside the text).

The new column is added at the right end. You can change the column order with Reorder Cols and the column name with Rename Cols.
