Hi All,

I need your assistance. I am looking for a free tool to compare two databases in different servers to show the differences between the two databases such as missing tables, missing columns, different data types, nulls, etc.

I google this but there are a large number of tools to use.

Can you please let me know tools that you have used and that is worth downloading.

I prefer a free tool but if there is a tool that’s worth buying then let me know, as long that is not too expensive.

Thanks.

Jose

I do vote for RedGate (an excellent tool to compare databases, but if you decide to buy it would be expensive), the option is if you have a MS Visual Studio Database Professional then you can compare the databases from the VS too...try it out.( it comes for 90 days free) so better than Red-Gate.
