Furthermore, in order to give you better control over your information, this utility allows you to create T-SQL script, as well as preserve an accurate history of previous database synchronization.

In order to allow users to personalize their projects, SQL Data Compare comes with numerous settings that you may adjust, and which are grouped under three main fields: “Mapping Behavior”, “Comparison Behavior” and Synchronization Behavior”. In order to apply desired settings to your project, you simply need to access the “Options” menu.

To conclude with, SQL Data Compare proves to be a handy tool, designed to enable comparing database schemas, backups and scripts folders, as well as synchronizations. Because of its user-friendly interface and a great organization of its settings, this utility can be used both by average computer users and well experienced ones.
