    Default Merge Row (diff) problems

    I have 2 files. one has 2 columns, the other has 4 since it has additional data. The merge row diff is complaining about the extra rows. I know if they have the same it works fine, but for this ETL I need additional fields in one that is not available in other. Any ideas would be very much appreciated. Using a older 4.1 Spoon due to that is what the vendor gives me.

    Merge Row is for taking two of the same set of data and comparing them, based on their keys.

    So you need to make your data look the same.
    Use an add constants step to add null columns of the same type that file2 has to file1's data. Then you can do a diff on the keys.
    I'm no expert.
    Take my comments at your own risk.
