How to: Compare Two Application Objects
Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
In Microsoft Dynamics AX, you can compare two application objects in the same or different layers by using the Compare tool. For example, you can compare a table in the CUS layer with the same table in the SYS layer. The Compare tool identifies the differences between the two application objects and provides action buttons to copy, move, or delete the differences. This topic describes how to compare two application objects in the Application Object Tree (AOT).

Right-click the selected application objects, and then click Compare. The Comparison formopens.
