Feature Compare and Table Compare, Mismatched Fields

Hello,

I'm in a situation where I'm having to update data every quarter and I want a quick way to check if the fields have changed. I discovered the Feature Compare and Table Compare tools but I can't seem to figure out if there's a way for them to tell you if the fields names and types have changed. I know it will tell you if the number of fields are the same or not, which is already really helpful, but there is an off chance that a field is replaced by a different field and the number of fields stays the same. I tested that earlier and it just said 'Tables have same amount of fields'. Does anyone know if this tool can accomplish what I'm looking for or alternatively, if there is a better way to accomplish what I'm after.

Thanks!

Hi @AdamBakiera I am finding the same as you. I wanted to use the tool to explicitly discover added or removed fields, based on a unique ID. But by only being able to designate a sort order, this is impossible, and the tool fails if there is a feature count mismatch.

I found this Idea post to give a kudo to.
