Hi,

In each comparison product there is a parameter that tells the product to stop reporting differences after some, say N, have been displayed. If you set this parameter to 1, you will get 1 reported difference..

Not sure much, I think CONTINUE can be used with MAXDIFF.

Thanks a lot for replying Anuj.

Yea you are right. CONTINUE is used with MAXDIFF. But even if i give MAXDIFF=0 it is showing differences. Pls help. Will I be able to see the reported differences in spool or somewhere?

You're welcome.

I can't be of much help, I don't have COMPAREX installed at my site, please search in google on "MAXDIFF + comparex", you might get a hint. Or go through the manuals.

Good Luck.. icon_smile.gif
