Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

  • Two different application objects.

  • The same application object in two different layers.

  • Two versions of the same object, if you are using version control.




Name & Location

Select two objects or two versions of one object to compare them.


Select criteria for comparison:

  • Show differences only - Select this option to view only the differences. If you do not select this option, the similarities will be displayed. This may yield much more information than is needed.

  • Suppress whitespace - Select this option to view differences in spaces in X++ code. The compiler does not distinguish between one or multiple spaces in the X++ code. Therefore checking for spaces is usually unnecessary.

  • Case sensitive - Select this option to identify differences in upper and lowercase letters, such as MyName and Myname. The Microsoft Dynamics AX compiler is not case sensitive. Therefore, this option is usually unnecessary.

  • Show line numbers -Select this option to list the line numbers in X++ code samples. This may make it easier to compare code.
