  1. sqlsompare report

    xml, html and excel reports for database differences (using options) include everything similarities as well as differences. Since, xml is excellent way to import data to SQL, it would be great if those reports included only differences (so that the file size is smaller). Right now the differences can only be output to text file if I am not mistaken.

      When you generate a report, there is a check box just above the last line in the dialog ‘Also include identical objects’ – if you uncheck this, then only differences will be output in your report.

    • Add line comparison at the bottom of the object comparison pane

      In the excellent file comparison tool Beyond Compare from Scooter Software, there is a full width line comparison view across the bottom of both comparison panes. This is extremely useful when comparing long lines of text and saves scrolling left and right all the time.

        SQL Compare does have this functionality: If you click on the Show dropdown (just above the differences pane), and select Line Differences. Is this the behaviour you were looking for?
