Data Compare for Oracle 5

Working with projects

Whenever you compare data, you set up a project. If you have any existing projects, the Project Configuration dialog box for your most recently used project is displayed when you start Data Compare for Oracle.

A project contains details of:

  • which data sources you selected
  • the connection details for your data sources
  • which tables you selected
  • any WHERE clause you have used to filter the results
  • which project configuration options you selected

By default, Data Compare for Oracle project files are saved in:

Project files are saved with the extension .dco

Creating and saving a project

To save a project, on the toolbar, click Save. Alternatively, on the Project Configuration dialog box, click Save.
