Is there a way to do a "clean" export of the differences between files? Not a diff, or even a formatted report... just a clean .CSV/.XLS/etc export.
This is for people that are non-technical; we have a number of nontechnical people in our company that could really use something like this. They work with mailing lists and need a way to extract the changes between list revisions.
As a programmer I know there are a large number of diff tools out there: WinDiff, BeyondCompare, FileMerge, command-line diff, etc. But I haven't been able to find one that will just give a clean export of the differences. (It's possible I've just missed something in one of the well-known diff tools I listed)

We'd like to export just the changed rows to... "ChangesInFileB.csv"

FWIW, the support guys at Beyond Compare say they don't offer that.
This question is superficially similar but doesn't address the "clean export" thing Can somebody recommend a program to compare differences in two text files and report the differences?
