Compare two SQL queries

You can compare contents in the clipboard with selected part of an SQL query.

  1. Copy an SQL query to the clipboard.

  2. Select and right-click the query in the editor with which you want to compare the query in the clipboard. Without selecting the query, you compare the clipboard contents with the whole file.

  3. From the context menu, select Compare with Clipboard.
