View Full Version : Replacements in a Folder Compare
02-Apr-2008, 11:38 AM
I have two folders each with 700 files in them. The files in one folder have an additional prefix in the front of the file name (see screenshot (http://mysite.verizon.net/bulgrien/images/FolderReplacements.png)). How do I align the two lists of files to check for differences? There is no "Replacements" tab in the rules dialog for a folder session.

Use "Alignment overrides" on the "Misc" page of Session Settings. You can also use Align With....

Sorry, but neither method worked. Please see my screencast (http://screencast.com/t/x01DbnCvtG9).

Actually, Align With... did work - it aligned the 2 files you told it to (the newly aligned item is hidden because of your display filters).
For your alignment override, you need to add a trailing "*" to both ("TD4603_usp*" and "usp*") because the pattern has to match the entire name.

Duh! I was still in text replacement mode. Thanks. Worked like a charm.
