File Compare tool not writing out the different values in each file

Discussion created by harrybowman on Oct 25, 2012
Comparing two text files, a.txt and b.txt. Output to a text file.

a.txt:
foo,bar
1,2
2,4
3,6


b.txt:
foo,bar
1,3
2,4
3,5


Comparison file:
Has_error, Identifier, Message, Base_value, Test_value, ObjectID
"true", "File", "ASCII files are different at line 2", " ", " ", -1
"true", "File", "ASCII files are different at line 4", " ", " ", -1

I would have expected this comparison file to have the Base value and Test value and not " " - what am I doing incorrectly?
