I have to identical tables:
Table1: TagID (Primary key), PlantName,[Object],[Type]
Table2: TagID (Primary key), PlantName,[Object],[Type]

I want to list rows that exist in Table2, but have different data

TagID (PK)      PlantName      Object      Type
KRA.Tag1            KP100            Pump1      A
KRA.Tag2            KP100            Pump2      B
KRA.Tag3            KP101            Motor1      B

TagID (PK)      PlantName      Object      Type
KRA.Tag1            KP100            Pump1      A
KRA.Tag2            KP100            Pump2      C
KRA.Tag3            KP101            Motor2      C
KRA.Tag4            KP102            Motor1      A (exclude this row, does not exist in Table1)

Result I want:
TableName      TagID (PK)      PlantName      Object            Type
Table1            KRA.Tag2            KP100            Pump1            B
Table2            KRA.Tag2            KP100            Pump1            C (diff)
Table1            KRA.Tag3            KP101            Motor1            B
Table2            KRA.Tag3            KP101            Motor2 (diff)      C (diff)
