  • XML into compare column

    I have got Beyond Compare 3 and I want to compare two XML files in such a way that the XML tags become the columns and I can set the key on them and compare. I think its the table compare options but I don't see it in my New sessions option. Can you please help me?

    The BC3 Data Compare (or BC4 Table Compare) do not support parsing xml files in this method. You would have to have some conversion process to convert the XML into a table format or a delimited format to support this view type.

    If you need to sort or tidy your nodes, BC3 does have several additional downloads which can parse/sort your files in different ways, downloaded from here:
    Beyond Compare is a multi-platform utility that combines directory compare and file compare functions in one package. Use it to manage source code, keep directories in sync, compare program output, etc.

    BC4 also has similar downlaods in the main Download page, under Additional Formats as well.
