  • A way to output total mismatches to a report?

    Hello. I love your product.

    I will run a daily script via scheduled tasks that will compare two folders and create a html report with the mismatches. That was easy enough to set up.

    My question is, is there a way to print either on the report or in the log the total number of mismatched files BC finds when running the script? i.e. 'Total Number of Mismatches: 6'.

    Basically, I want to use another program to monitor the report that is created daily to see if Total Number of Mismatches > 0.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Unfortunately this is information is not included in our Summary report. It is on our Customer Wishlist to add this information.

    As a workaround, you could use the XML report, and use a program to parse and count the relevant nodes.

      Thanks for the speedy response! Though it would be a handy feature, it's not a major set back.

      And thanks for the suggestion, I will definitely look into the XML route!

      Have a great day!
