Comparing Workbooks between QTO Projects

497 Views, 1 Replies

I'm looking for a way to "simply" compare two different QTO projects to get the additions and/or subtractions.  Basically I want to take Version A of a design and compare it to Version B design to see what my different in additions or subtracts are.


I'm fine with exporting the workbooks and/or reports (whatever is feasible) to do so outside of QTO.  I'm just looking for a direction on this.


I've looked into the exports also and if anyone can tell me what I can do and open a atq file that would helpful.

Hello. Inside QTO you can compare additions and deletions of sheets using the compare sheets function, but there is currently no function to bounce entire workbooks off of each other. We have some basic sheet comparison functionality. There is a post here that may be helpful in this regard.




As for comparing workbooks, I would be curious to see what other users may be thinking in this regard.
