  • comparison of 'Keyed' files.

    Hi, All. i am trying to compare 2 files that have the same structure. The data is from a keyed file (i.e bytes 1-26 are the unique key). for the life of me, i can not get this to match/line-up on the key.

    Effectively, if a record exists on both sides of the compare with the same key data, it should line-up, otherwise it should show as an inclusion or exclusion...

    any ideas on how to make this happen? (had been trying this with BC2 using RegEx (i am a regex idiot), and also just upgraded to BC3, thinking maybe this may have been added, but still can't find anything)

    thanks,
    G

    Are you viewing the files in a text compare session, or a data compare session? A text compare does not recognize key fields and will not align files strictly based on a key column. If you attach two sample files, maybe someone can suggest a solution for you...

      i was in DataView... I FINALLY managed to find the setting to allow me to manually size the columns... that did the trick (atleast in BC3Pro).

      thanks,
