SQL Compare bundle - one click comparison

Both of the SQL Compare bundle tools, Schema Compare and Data Compare provide a very simple and intuitive interface that allows you to reduce the operation of comparing the schemas of two databases or the data contained in them, into a single click

Obviously, the first time you compare two databases, depending on the scenario, you may need to go through a few steps to:

  • choose the object types you may wish to include or exclude from the comparison
  • select the comparison options if the default options do not satisfy the requirements of your use-case
  • select scripting options
  • maybe set some object filters in the case of Schema Compare
  • select comparison keys in the case of Data Compare when the tables you are comparing do not have a primary key defined or a unique index
  • maybe set row filters in the case of Data Compare. 
However, once you have customized your comparison to meet your specific requirements, every selection you have made is saved into a comparison session which you can then run with just one click.
