Swissmedic-Diff compares two Swissmedic-Files with each other. It does this by comparing the columns and the lines. Only if a line or a value in a field has changed
will run at
as an example.
If there is no Packungen-latest.xls file then Swissmedic-Diff will compare the downloaded Packungen.xls packages directly with the Database. In this case the Update-Diff is ignored and only the "News" is kept for updating. "News" concerns all new packages.
Otherwise the downloaded Packungen.xls will be compared with the Packungen-latest.xls.
