ODF Comparison Utility - adodfcmp: ERROR: You need to supply the mode argument
What am I doing wrong. This is the first time I'm using it. Any idea what I am suppose to do???
You are missing the mode parameter - as the error message indicates. The odf file contains definitions for views, tables, etc. Since you have changedb=yes - which means you want the adodfcmp utility to read the odf file and apply the changes to the database you need to also specify what sort of changes you are performing. i.e views.
This is how you would run adodfcmp if it were views that had to be changed:
adodfcmp odffile=pomrc2.odf userid=apps/apps mode=views changedb=yes
