XML ArgFile and <include>

d3juld3jul Posts: 4
I have a pb with the switch <include> in my argfile.
It compare all the tables of the database instead of comparing tables that are in the list.

My ArgFile :
<?xml version="1.0"?>

My .bat:
sqldatacompare /argfile:"c:\test_compare\Config_Compare_Data_BO.xml"

I have the version of SqlDataCompare.

    Thanks for your post. Does it work if you bracket the table? For instance:


    If not, it may be a bug. I've found one here where the include option occasionally is ignored, although I thought it only related to working with script folders...
    If the change above doesn't help, can you see if the same thing occurs in 8.50? You can find that here

  • I have the same issue with the bracket.

    I will test with 8.50.

    Thanks for the reply.
  • It's OK with the 8.5 version.

    Ahh, good to hear. I'll add a note of this forum thread to the bug we have; hopefully it can get looked at soon.

  • Is there any update on this? I think I am seeing the same problem...

    When i specify /Include:Missing on the command line, or <include>Missing</include> in an xml args file, the command line tool includes all my tables, instead of the ones that I include in the /Include:Table: list, or in the <include>Table:X</include> xml tags.

    We really need to be able to include only certain tables, but also set the include missing flag.
