    Default Ignore a Difference Where the Value Is Present in Another Column in the Same File

    Hello folks,

    If I am comparing File A (left) and File B(right), is it possible to ignore differences in a particular column of B if the correct value is present in another specified column in B?

    Any help is greatly appreciated,

    Hello,

    Not without aligning those two columns in the Data Compare. Assuming you are in a Data Compare session (rows, columns and cells), you can use the Session menu -> Session Settings dialog, Columns tab. Here each 'cell' represents a column of the left or right file, and you can use the arrow buttons to re-align columns. If you re-align the columns to match, then the data would be equal and not marked as a difference, assuming it occurs on the same row.
