Expanding and Collapsing Elements

In the Select Database Objects for Comparison dialog box, you can expand and collapse either individual elements or use the menu commands to expand or collapse all siblings or children of a certain element.

 

To expand or collapse a single element:

Do one of the following:

 

To expand an element, click the "+" icon to the left of the element. Alternatively, select the element, and press the Right Arrow key or the Plus Sign (+) key.
To collapse an element, click the "-" icon to the left of the element. Alternatively, select the element, and press the Left Arrow key or the Minus Sign (-) key.

 

To expand or collapse siblings or children:

Right-click an object in the Select Database Objects for Comparison dialog box and select one of the following from the context menu:

 

Expand | Siblings: Fully expands all contents of the objects that are on the same level as the selected object. For example, if you right-clicked on a table, all sibling tables and the selected table will be expanded.
Expand | Children: Fully expands the descendent objects of the selected object.
Collapse | Siblings: Collapses all contents of the objects that are on the same level as the selected object. For example, if you right-clicked on a table, all sibling tables and the selected table will be collapsed.
Collapse | Children: Collapses the descendent objects of the selected object.
