Setting Data Compare Options in VSTS for Database Professionals (DataDude)

  • Contributed by:
VSTS for Database Professionals

Changing the comparison rules for the Data Compare is not as obvious as it should be. You need to go into the Tools -> Options menu to make changes.

  1. Click on the Tools Menu -> Options
  2. Expand Database Tools in the tree
  3. Select Data Compare.

I'm waiting to see if this has changed in v1.0, but I'd suggest that a button is added to the default Data Compare toolbar.

The same problem exists for Setting Schema Compare Options in VSTS for Database Professionals (DataDude).
