Tests Generated from Table Comparisons

Tests Generated from Table Comparisons

When you run a table comparison, Data Validation Option generates count and value tests for all columns that have compatible datatypes and matching columns. When you create a table comparison, you configure whether to match columns based on the column name or column position.
When you run a table comparison, Data Validation Option generates OUTER_VALUE, VALUE, and COUNT_ROWS tests.
Data Validation Option does not generate OUTER_VALUE and VALUE tests for binary columns.
