The methodology focuses on structural differences between spreadsheets and suggests a technique by which a risk analysis can be achieved in an automated environment. The paper offers an example that demonstrates how contiguous ranges of data can be mapped into a generic list of formulae, data and metadata. The example then shows that comparison of these generic lists can establish the… CONTINUE READING
