Comments
Unlike the Table Pair example earlier in this document, you cannot create an export spreadsheet for Compare Tables from the GUI. Given that it only has 7 columns, it can be easily recreated manually. Informatica also provides a sample spreadsheet in the following directory on the client machine.
<DVO client install dir>/samples/CompareTables-template.xlsx
Of these 7 columns, only Columns C and D (Table_A, Table_B) are mandatory. The others are optional.
