  • 15075 Data Compare - getting different column names

    How do I get the left and right panes to respect Session Settings column names that differ between left and right files? Currently both panes will show only one file's names, e.g.



    Thanks.

    The BC3 data compare shows the column name as it appears in the Session Settings, Columns tab, "Comparison" column. This column is generally populated with the left file's names, but can also be edited and customized.

    Adding the right file to show right names is on our Wishlist.

      I take that to mean the answer is "You can't". Thanks.

        Implement different left and right column names>

        I use Data Compare almost exclusively with files having different column names which need to be matched. It is really a struggle to deal with the fact that the column names are the same on the left and right comparison view.

        Any estimate on when

        will be implemented?

        Thank you for a great software tool.

            This is still an open item on our Wishlist, and is not yet something we've been able to implement in the current release.

              As a matter in interest, what's the function/purpose of the "Session Settings", Columns, "Right file" column in the current version?

                The Session Settings allow the columns to be adjusted and re-aligned manually. The left most column (Comparison column) controls the title used (if edited).

                  Ah, so "Right file" is just to ID for alignment. I get it. Thanks Aaron.
