  1. Specify tables to compare up front

    We frequently bring data from production databases to staging and development environments, it involves around 120 tables , but to start with we want to pick 3 or 4 huge tables(rows ~ 3 million) and see how much time it will take to do data comparison and deploy differences, instead of copying down entire tables.Also please see if you can develop the functionality of selecting a list of tables for comparison before registering entire databases.

    • Data Compare for Oracle should also compare database data against SVN Source Control - like SQL Data Compare does

      Data Compare for Oracle should also compare database data against SVN Source Control - like SQL Data Compare does with all the options found there

      • Compare tables with different tablenames

        Could you please make it possible to compare tables with different tablenames?

        This should be applied to all tools.

        I do believe this is possible in the SQL Server-tools.

          • Use Insert, Update, Delete commands instead of execute immediate

            I would prefer if the generated script would use insert/update/delete commands for each records instead of execute immediate.

            • Command line interactive report

              As with Schema compare tool, Data compare Tool should generate an interactive report.

              • Exclude schema name in deployment script for Data Compare for Oracle

                When generating a deployment script in Schema Compare for Oracle you have the option to 'Exclude schema names in the deployment script'. Please could we have the same functionality in Data Compare for Oracle. This would be very useful when applying the script to different schemas.

                • compare columns with different names

                  I am comparing two versions of a vendor application db, and sometimes they change columns names (even when not necessary). The tool needs a way to bind these two together.

                  It could be done with a simple mechanism under the hood, like simply creating a (new) common field alias name between the two queries.

                  It would be good if it could be implemented to allow general sql field query/conversion logic (where meaningful). For instance, sometimes even when keeping the name identical, other aspects of the field might have been changed which could lead to false positives for changes.

                  e.g. a…

                  • support retargeting: allow to skip schema "refresh" when changing connection details and schema selection

                    This is a major issue

                    If I configure a compare between two schemas, with field restrictions, and where clauses, save it as a profile, and copy to a new file, those settings all get clobbered when I try to configure the same compare between two different schemas/instances.

                    Even if the setup as is definitely applies to these new targets, the tool reexamines the table structure, and enables everything, tossing all my configs, even when I don't want it to. I'm sure this was envisioned as a helpful 'feature', but it's needless. It's destroying my work, and could have been accomplished…

                    • Allow Deployment wizard the ability to list or disable Foreign Key constraints

                      When running the deployment wizard after a data compare rather throw error that database contains foreign keys in a cycle. It would be great if it listed the ones and allow you to disable them.

                        • Selecting TABLES list from Excel / Text file ?

                          If the source schema has around 1000 tables and we want to compare only 500 tables. Its a very tedious job to select all the 500 tables manually in the TABLES options tab. If we have all the 500 tables list stored in an excel sheet,csv,txt format. It would be good if data compare tool GUI (or) command line utility has a way to read all the user defined tables list from the excel/txt/csv sheet.
