    Open both documents in the same instance of Excel and then click Window/compare side by side.

    Dear stormyonell,

    Thank you for your prompt reply.

    I Have tried following your instructions a number of ways alas without any success.
    Please explain exactly what do you mean by "Same instance" I took it to mean a new blank Excel workbook?

    Kind regards
    Roy

    If you want to open two Excel files in two different Excel windows, you have to first open two Excel processes, and then open the files using File -> Open or Office Button -> Open (depending on the version you're using).
