SQL Script File Organizer

Posted on 2007-04-05

Last Modified: 2010-03-19
I would like a utility that prints the history of actions taken on entries in a SQL script file.  

Say, an entry is added with an INSERT INTO.  Subsequently, the name is UPDATEd.  Later, the code for the entry is UPDATEd.  Similar actions are present in the script file, which is created from an accumulation over time of INSERT INTOs and UPDATEs.

I want a utility that will accumulate all actions on each entry together, giving the event by event action.  I want to avoid having to manually review the entire file, manually aggregating the information for each entry.

Does such a utility exist?

You are looking at something that may handle your code versionning.  You may see Visual Source Safe (included in some edition of Visual Studio)...

Hope this helps...
