Hi experts,

I saw this article about being able to do a SQL server schema compare in Visual Studio 2010.

http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/145979/SQL-Server-Schema-Comparison-Tool-in-Visual-Studio

So I ran a schema compare. After I ran my schema compare I see a list of all my tables in both databases that I'm comparing. It shows the differences in any of the tables. It looks something like this, but my list is longer and I have to scroll down the screen because there are alot more tables than on this picture:

Is there a way to print this list of tables?

As far as I can tell, your only option is going to be the good old "print screen" button on the keyboard.

Unfortunately the File > Print menu item is disabled with a schema compare.

I don't believe that there is any way to print the output, as far as I can tell.

In the same article which you pointed to, there at the 10th step you have an option of exporting to a file. You can use that option i guess.

TempDBA: I doubt that that would fulfill the asker's requirement.  Export to file gives you a script with ALTER TABLE and so on statements.  But indeed, the table names are in the file ;)

You could try using SQL Compare instead:
