Best way to show differences between two similar data sets

I am analyzing the changes in user permissions in a single system from two points in time: today and one year ago.

Both data sets have the same 3 columns: Name (user role), Permission, and Level (read, write, edit). I have loaded to prevent syn keys.

1. There were changes in the available Names (role). Some appear one year ago and not today, while some appear today but not a year ago. This is easy for me to analyze and I already have the delta.

2. Some Names (roles) have different permissions, and perhaps even different levels between the two time periods. This is the hard part. How an I show the differences in a QlikView--either using flags or colors or some other method? Alternate States?

     E.g., AP Manager today has "Accounts Payable Graphing" permissions, but did not 1 year ago.

Below is a sample of the data set, to a data set of about 80k rows. Thanks

Re: Best way to show differences between two similar data sets

John has created some samples for this some time ago, e.g.

How to compare 2 tables and put non-matching results?

Hope this helps,
