Calculate distance between points based on matching ID?

Hi, 

 

I have two point shapefiles, one that is the original data, and one that is corrected data. The shapefiles share several fields, including common feature IDs, but the points in the corrected version have been moved to their correct positions using arcgis collector in the field. Now I wold like to compare the original and corrected versions of these shapefiles so that I can include a new field in the corrected version that displays the distance between the original point and the corrected point. Is there a simple way to do this in ArcGIS pro?

 

I have investigated the NEAR tool but this does not appear to be quite right. I only want to calculate the distance between locations of points that share a common ID, not all points within a search radius. Or am I missing something there?

 

Thanks,

 

bob
