I compared two tables that were identical except for a changed datatype on ColumnA and some indexes, one of which accessed ColumnA - we'll call it IDX_ColumnA. My goal was to sync the datatype of ColumnA and nothing else. I turned off the "Indexes" option hoping it wouldn't attempt to sync them.
Here's what I wanted the script to do:
- DROP INDEX IDX_ColumnA
ALTER COLUMN ColumnA
CREATE INDEX IDX_ColumnA
Instead, what it included was DROP INDEX statements for all those that existed in the target but not the source, and then the ALTER COLUMN.
Is there any way I can achieve what I want?
