They both have the same columns.
I want to compare the InspectionID column.
The Inspection ID column may have duplicates in both of the worksheets.

I was told that although that there is no official
highlight button for publisher like there is for word but
there are ways to get around it. I am using the 2003
version of publisher. does anyone know the trick.
Make a small box and fill it with whatever color you want. Place it behind
your text and then group it with your text.

You can set flags on messages from certain senders.

Yes. Owner-draw/Custom-draw tree controls did not exist when I wrote that chapter of the
book. Now you would handle the NM_CUSTOMDRAW notification and handle them otherwise like
most owner-draw controls.
