Can you recommend a good XML diff tool?


We are often exporting and importing XML files for views, reports, etc between servers. I've tried Altova DiffDog. But the fact that objects in the file are given new IDs with each export can make comparisons a challenge.

Can you recommend any XML diff tool?

Thanks and regards

Hi Paula,

I have never used an XML compare tool, but I do use Notepad ++, which is a free text editor and allows you to compare documents (including XML files).

This should give you the results you're after as I often compare files using this tool :).

Let me know if this doens't work out for you.
