Simple compare of tables and columns

Postby Bob Lawson » Wed Mar 20, 2013 9:27 pm

We have an application that updates a target DB for us when we change revisions. I'm trying to use SQL COmpare to see if the update went OK.

The problem is that I have 3 identical tables and 646 that are different. But they are different in local generated constraint names or field order.

Is there a way to have SQL Compare, just compare the tables, columns and column definitions no matter the order?

If I go through the 646 tables, most are fine for our uses since we do not care if the fields are in any specific order.

Thanks
Bob

There are two options that may be of use to you in your particular case.
You will want to uncheck
Force Column order.
and check
Ignore system named constraints and index names.
