  • Data Compare - sectioned report

    I need a Data Compare report showing separate sections for left orphans, right orphans, and same. Given no orphans filters, is there some semi-manual way in BC I can get this?

    Currently I output as HTML, import to Excel, and sort on the unnamed middle column showing the compare result type.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Right click the toolbar and switch the Data Compare's Display filters from Favorites to Toggles. Then toggle the view to show only the items you want (Same, Left Orphans, Right Orphans), then go to the Session menu -> Data Compare Report.

    The report will then offer to generate with just the visible items.

      Thanks. That enables the workaround I need: make separate reports for left orphans,, right orphans and same, and paste them together.

      I'd searched for mention of orphans on e menus and toolbars, having forgotten orphan controls are by default hidden from menus and toolbars. Could you pass on my suggestion that Left Orphans and Right Orphans be added to the existing filters on the View menu. With accelerator keys? Thanks.

      Yup, that adds orphans.

      I see 'Report options' like View offers Same and Differences but by default no orphans. How about adding Left Oprhans and Right Orphans there too? Thanks.
