Update History

This update includes the following enhancements:

  • Improved SQL string comparisons for saved queries and properties like RecordSource and RowSource.
    • Trailing blank spaces and extra blank lines are removed before comparing them
    • This avoids flagging SQL string differences that do not affect functionality
  • Query comparison. Under Data Options, if the query option is set to First Field Unique, it was always treating them sequentially and stopped on the first difference. This is fixed and works correctly.
  • Table macro comparison supports table names with an apostrophe (') in them
  • Text comparison. If the VBA option is not selected, the results do not show the the Procedure tabs
  • Database comparison results: The database name goes across the entire top of the form rather than being truncated
  • All other reported issues
