    Default How to get a count of matching lines?

    As a longtime BC user I'm surprised I can't find this (or that it isn't there).

    When looking at a simple text file compare, how can I get the number of matching lines?

    I see references here to Differences Reports and Statistics, but find no such menu entries in File Compare mode.
    Thanks

    In the Text Compare, select Session > Text Compare Info to display the number of matching lines.

    To output the number of matching lines to a file or printer, select Session > Text Compare Report, then select Summary as the report layout.
