I am just trying to compare two tables in the same database for data differences, it seems there isn't a way to map one table to another, just like tables in different databases. Is this possible, any suggestions.
This is an example:
If I have table `dbo.PortsBaselineTable` and `dbo.PortsTable`
Each have the exact same column names:
I want to be able to query the resulting differences. The dbo.PortsBaselineTable will have about 6000 rows and the Baseline Column will have the number '1', the dbo.PortsTable will continually add data and the Baseline Column will have '0' for all rows. I want to pick two dates one from each table and compare all the rows that are different based on the two particular dates and then grouped by computer name.
Is this even feasible? I would mind having the data in the same table with just the baseline flag changing as I add more data.
Here is a snapshot of the result set:
