Use DTM Data Comparer to compare and synchronize Interbase and Firebird databases

DTM Data Comparer is a comparison and synchronization software for tables, queries, files and spreadsheets. It was designed and developed to help advanced users, developers, and administrators to compare or synchronize Interbase databases and Firebird databases. Also, it provides a way to compare the mentioned type of databases with desktop files (like text, CSV or Excel spreadsheet) and another kind of databases. For better productivity, the tool supports native BDE/IDAPI interface for Interbase and Firebird connections.

The comparison software has two modes: visual and console (unattended) modes. How does the tool work? The software fetches tables and compares unique key values (it is PK if present or user defined one). DTM Data Comparer places the records with a different key to different grid lines and marks row by the yellow background. Otherwise, the program places them to the same grid lines and stains cells background by green for equal fields and different fields by red.

The tool can compare objects with a different structure: another column name, column sort order or even columns with internal structure. The user allowed to apply built-in Interbase/Firebird database functions like 'substr' to the data item or value.
