Compare and Synchronize SQL Server Tables and Databases

DTM Data Comparer is easy to use comparison and synchronization tool. It helps DBA or database developers to compare or even synchronize SQL Server databases in a visual manner. Also, it has console mode for scheduled comparison and synchronization. The software supports both full and express editions of the SQL Server starting 2000 version. The limited support for 6.5 and 7.0 versions is also provided.

The comparison software fetches MS SQL server tables basing on the order of ascending of primary key values. The user can define an alternate unique key. If the table has no rows with the same key value, the software places the records to different lines and highlights the data row by the yellow background. Otherwise, i.e. values of the keys accord, the program places them to the same grid lines and highlights cells for equal fields by green background and different fields by the red background.

With DTM Data Comparer the user is enabled to compare tables with a different structure. The column mapping feature allows specifying the correspondence between source and target tables. Moreover, the user can apply built-in MS SQL Server functions like CAST to a target value. This option provides data transformation for the synchronization process.
