  • Exclude from comparsion


    I'd like to compare two .csv files with the following format in each line:
    <Data>, <Timestamp>

    Is it possible, that the Timestamp is excluded from comparsion? I found the possibility to mark it as "minor changes", but it happens, that the wrong lines are compared to each other since the Data+Timestamp brings a better fitting result than just the data.

    To confirm, you posted in the BC3 forum, but are you using BC3? And which viewer are you currently within (Text Compare, or Data or Table Compare)?

    There are a few different tools or approaches that might help, but it can vary file to file. It might help to email in specific sample files to [email protected], along with a full screen screenshot with View menu -> Line Numbers enabled, and let me know which lines you hope to align with which lines. I could then give a few things a try.

    If emailing, please also include a link back to this forum thread for our reference.
