With TestBench File and Report Compare, you can instantly see any and all differences between two versions of a file or report. As a result, you can cut out manual and laborious comparison methods, speeding up your work and (hopefully) reducing your stress levels.
TestBench is smart enough to understand that sometimes the data it needs to compare is in different places and might look different in one file version to another. No matter how your files change, you can still use File and Report Compare to validate changes with confidence.
Sequence comparisons by Arrival Sequence, RRN, PF Key or LF Key – whatever works best for you.
Set a maximum number of records to process, or a maximum number of differences to find, before a test concludes, so you can test faster.
It doesn’t matter if a file’s structure changes during an update – TestBench can still compare both versions.
TestBench can compare files and reports even if you’ve used Alternative File Descriptions.
Go beyond simple text and number fields to compare everything that matters in a file or report.
Add in customizations to your processes wherever you need.
Graphically define multiple report sections, set report breaks and exclude data you don’t want, and handle headers and footers to ensure you compare reports on your terms.
Alternatively, choose to match reports based on line number.
