now, if they could lock down comparing Excel files, I would die and go to heaven.

Since Excel files are containers for multiple files, this would be like comparing two folders with added complications. In addition to there being multiple worksheets containing either grids or charts (and also charts on the grids), there's also highlighting, conditional rules, VBA macros, etc..

And that's before you consider how to actually display the difference between 2 versions of a worksheet, assuming they can be matched up when columns and rows may have been moved around, the worksheets have been renamed and moved into a different order...

Checking if the value of one cell has changed or is now a formula or an inserted image is barely the beginning!
