Analysis comparison

Hello,
    Maybe I am having some troubles understanding how the comparison is supposed to work, or perhaps my files are messed up, but I am finding the comparison of two files I have to be useless. It is telling me that everything has been changed. It reports 22,000+ changes. For exaple, in layout objects, it says that in one file 6,865 were deleted and 6,868 were added. It is not very easy to figure out what the differences in the files are in this mass of results. I had hoped the comparison would tell me the 10-12 things that I believe to be different between the files (script steps, layout objects, etc).
    Now, it is possible that the problem is in how the files were generated. I am not certain but I believe that one file is clone of the other file. This would reset all the internal IDs for objects, I would imagine. Is that what IP5 is using to compare between the files?

    Justin,

    There have been some updates made so make sure you are using the latest version.

    Build 168

    Have the database names changed? If so then it will be looking at things differently because it uses the database names as part of the comparison.

    And it also uses the internal IDs But I feel that those IDs don’t change even if the file is cloned.

    Let me know if this helps you.

    Thanks for the tip about the file names.  The original problem of this ticket is resolved.
