I have 2 files. A detail file and a summary file. There is a field in both files called Compensation type. The summary file is based on rolling up the data from the detail file based on 15 key fields. All of which are attributes in the detail file. I am trying to verify that all of the detail records for a given set of keys have the same Compensation type. If they don't, having the Compensation type at the summary file level doesn't make sense.

Here is some sample data: (I shortened the # of key fields to make it easier to understand)
Key1 Key2 Key3 .... Cmpsn Type
1 2 3 Gold
1 2 3 Gold
1 2 3 Gold
1 2 3 Gold
1 3 5 Silver
1 3 5 Silver
1 3 5 Bronze
2 1 1 Bronze
2 1 1 Bronze
2 1 1 Bronze
2 1 1 Bronze
2 1 1 Bronze
3 2 1 Gold

In this set of records, I'm trying to identify the situation for the second set of keys (1,3,5) where the Compensation type is Silver on 2 records and Bronze on the third.
