Bug Found

Noticing a bug when doing a schema compare with external tables location exemption set on.  The tables are shown as equal to another schema even if there is a difference some where else in the table.  Example, between two schemas for an external table, one schema was missing a line of code to skip 1 record.  Turning off the external tables location exemption and re-running the comparison, this difference was shown in the report.

    Hi @william,

    This appears to be a known issue with internal reference OC-841 where it is ignoring other parts of the external table when the location is being ignored.

    I have added a reference to your post here and will update here when I have further information on a possible fix for the issue.

    Kind regards,
