About SQL Compare
Published 04 June 2013
With SQL Compare, you can compare and deploy the structure of two Microsoft SQL Server databases.
This is useful, for example, in a development environment when changes made to a local database need to be transferred to a live database on a remote server. Traditionally, this meant spending hours scrutinizing the database structure and hand-generating deployment scripts. SQL Compare automates this process for you.
