Working with projects
Published 04 February 2013
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
Finding a project
On the toolbar, clickto display the Open Project browser:
The browser allows you to locate and open saved project files on your computer.
By default, Data Compare for Oracle project files are saved in:
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\My Documents\Data Compare for Oracle\Projects
Project files are saved with the extension .dco
Creating and saving a project
To create a new project, on the toolbar, clickNew.
To save a project, on the toolbar, clickSave. Alternatively, on the Project Configuration dialog box, click Save.
You can also save a project when you are reviewing its comparison results. This can be useful if you want to save your object selections with the project.
If there are unsaved changes in the current project, you will be prompted to save when you create a new project, open another project, or when you close Data Compare for Oracle.
