Scenario 1 - Add tables to the Compare Tables Import Spreadsheet

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.
