That sounds very interesting.  I am not sure if it fits in with what I
need to do.

It sounds like your utility finds the differences between two record
formats.

I have two files of identical record format.  One is being processed by
our current production software at the same time the other with be
processed by the new software.  Once both files have been processed I
need to see which fields in which records are different.  This will
highlight any differences in the software processing.  

Oh yeah - make that 2 sets of 500 files each that need to be compared !

Right now I am looking at about $5000 for a product that appears to do
the job very well !
