There are some discrepancies between spreadsheet A and spreadsheet B.

I found the data in two spreadsheets are inconsistent. can I substitute discrepancies with Variances/differences in above?

    They have discrepancies or inconsistencies if they should be the same. If they have differences, that might be okay. Perhaps they're meant to be different (perhaps one is newer, and updated). Don't use 'variance' because that has a technical meaning in statistics, which might be applicable to the figures in the spreadsheets.
