Setting compare options

Managing Projects - New Project Wizard - Step 3



Select object type in the Database object tree, set a flag to include the object type into the comparison process.

The Select All and Unselect All buttons in the popup menu are implemented to make option selection easier.


Define Compare properties in the corresponding group within the Compare Options tab.


Filter Options

For your convenience the filter of object names is added. You can use standard wildcards such as asterix (*) or percent sign (%) which are the same, or the question mark (?). To exclude the object names set in the filter, use the exclamation mark (!) at the beginning, e.g. the result for !T* stands for all objects except the object names starting with T.


Managing Projects - Filter Options



If any of these symbols presents the name of the object and you do need to apply filter to them, just double that symbol, e.g. the result for !!T* will result in all objects with names that start with !T.


Always exclude following objects

Enter the objects (one on the line) that you do not want to be compared.


To delete filter condition you may use the Clear Filter button of the Database objects popup menu.
