Schema compare for Oracle 3.0 is showing differences between tables that are only differences in the column order. It will show a column being deleted on the right and then a few rows down the same column is being added.

The deployment script, even with Force Column Order unchecked, is creating the table as temp then copying data from existing table and then dropping and renaming.

How do I get the compare to ignore those differences?

Thank you for your forum post.

The comparison process uses two different comparison process, one generates the results where objects will appear in one of the following listings:

Exist in both but are different
Exist only in db1 or the left hand side data source or source only
Exist only in db2 or the right hand side or target only
Identical

The second comparison process is a textual differences which you see in the SQL differences panel.

When you review the results panel, with the 'Force Column Order' option unchecked, does the table in question appear in the 'Exist in both but are different' listing or the 'Identical'?

A support call has been created for you. If the answer to my question above, 'Exist in both but are different' can you please update this support TICKET with creation scripts of the table from both data sources.

Many Thanks
Eddie
