There is a compare tool on the install disk. However, it won't compare across versions. Having said that, if you export both to L5K files, you can use a standard text tool like diff to find things. Same for finding those AFIs; just save as L5K, open in Notepad (or Word or whatever) and do a standard search for the text AFI.
