Steven, I don't know if you'll get a solution to your issue using RDi source compare and perhaps you are already aware of this, but IBM's green screen CMPPFM has a "Process option" (OPTION) parameter that lets you fine-tune what gets compared. The output's not as easy to read as the source compare options in RDi, but when you gotta, you gotta.

The issue we found is that we need to ignore beyond column 70. I do not see where I can tell ISphere to ignore columns

And if you want to do even better compares, I recommend iSphere.

Hi Steve,

The delta ICON compare is the older style LPEX compare.

You want to use the newer Member compare added back in 9.6 stream.

You can Click on the member in either the RSE Tree view or the Object
Table view and select Compare with menu option.

This member compare should be more what you are looking for.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Source compare RDI

I am doing a source compare on two members.

I have not used this feature in RDI before so maybe I am missing a
setting or something.

If I click the next difference button, it does not show anything being

If I scroll through the source code, it has code displayed as red in
the old member that is NOT in the new member.
I would have expected it to show that this code is missing when I
clicked on the next difference button.

Is there a good guide on how to use the compare feature?
