Bug when selecting all columns

Hi everybody.

I don't know where this might be posted elsewhere, so i thought i would share this with you here.

I ran into this bug, confirmed by Red Gate (reference F0026180). It happens when you use Data Compare 8 and select all columns as part of the comparison key, by doing the following: select the first (top) column in the mapping screen, hold SHIFT and select the bottom column, press space to select every selected column.

As long as you do this while all columns are selectable, you're fine. But if the list includes a column which is not manually selectable (no tick box on that row), you might run into problems.

You can work around this, by doing the 'select 1st column, hold shift, select last column, spacebar'-selection, but as the end of every selection, select the column just before a non-selectable column.

Hope this saves some time for people running into the bug we we did.


  • Thanks for raising this bug to us. We'll try to get this fixed in the next point release. For your reference, our internal bug number is SDC-1049.
