View spreadsheets side by side

Excel 365
Sometimes it is necessary to compare two Excel worksheets. E.g., compare balance sheets for different periods of time. You can do it by comparing spreadsheets side by side in two automatically linked windows.

The sheets can be in the same workbook or in the different workbooks.

On the View tab, in the Window group, click View Side by Side:
