Access database table was converted to SQL table

I converted an Access database table to a SQL table. The vendor has made changes to the original Access table that I already converted. Is there some type of compare I can run to see what changes need to be applied to the structure of the SQL table. Thanks.

One of two things -- you could export the database designs to VISIO and compare the Diagrams side by side.

Or you could Reupsize the db and use SQLDBCompare to do the comparison  Link: http://www.sharewareconnection.com/sqldbcompare.htm
