Jacque,
From your description, it seems you have not (yet) found the “Compare Projects” tool (on the Report tab/ribbon in MSP 2016). That tool is intended to compare two versions of the same project, using the task/resource Unique IDs as comparison keys. It examines values in the specified tables from the two projects, then it combines those values and their differences in a new “Comparison Report” project. Differences are identified cell-by-cell, including all detailed and summary tasks. Any roll-ups occur before the comparisons, not after.
Limitations:
1. The comparison report requires a fair number of custom fields, and this limits the number and types of fields to be included in the compared tables.
2. If the project files have been managed in a way that fails to preserve the Unique IDs from version to version, then all bets are off.
Good luck, tom
