Checksum different For Same file Created By Two processes

I have one utility in VB which generates attached file(circle.14.mdn_range.properties_VB) & i have created other file(circle.14.mdn_range.properties_UTLFILE) having same contents with UTL_FILE(Oracle running on solaris). But checksum is different for both the files with same contents. Can you suggest the reason ?
CertUtil -hashfile circle.14.mdn_range.properties_VB MD5
MD5 hash of file circle.14.mdn_range.properties_VB:
1b 43 b6 a4 44 d0 4d 8a 8b 91 3e 7b d7 aa 4f 4e
CertUtil: -hashfile command completed successfully.
CertUtil -hashfile circle.14.mdn_range.properties_UTLFILE MD5  
MD5 hash of file circle.14.mdn_range.properties_UTLFILE:
ae 0c 75 b8 d5 19 05 64 d5 c6 54 ec 55 bc dc e0
CertUtil: -hashfile command completed successfully.

How do you know that the files are identical?

If you compare them using "diff" command does it say that they are the same?

If diff says that they're different I suggest you look at them with a hex editor if they're not too big.

Hi Hick,
Yes diff says both files are same. That is the reason not getting to understand why checksum is different.

Any ideas
# 4  
Those files are not identical.

I agree with RudiC. Those files cannot be identical (unless your md5 calculator is faulty).

When you compared them did you do a binary compare or only ascii?
# 6  
Yes the files is different in terms of the data which is there, else there is no difference. Following are my queries:
1. Does data in one as ascending and in other descending gives different checksums?
2. If diff gives this difference then how do i do comparison in binary or ascii mode using hexdump

Yes. You will only get the same hash if both files are IDENTICAL in every way.
