SQL Server replication is a fantastic piece of functionality but can lead to a database administration nightmare. Data
conflicts are a common occurrence and require constant attention. SSW SQL Total Compare reports the differences between
the Publisher and Subscribers databases and makes the changes necessary to fully synchronize the data.
Note: This product was developed in VB6 - new development is on hold.
The source code is available for purchase for $1500US
SSW SQL Total Compare is a valuable tool for SQL Server
replication. The amount of conflicts I had before using SSW
Total Compare was huge!! It made the previously difficult task
of achieving full synchronization as easy as clicking the 'ok'
button. Highly recommend this product to all.

How it works
Four scripts have been included in the installation directory with SSW SQL Total Compare. These scripts are used to create
four stored procedures that are used by this tool. These stored procedures are created on the first or publisher database
when the tool is first run on the publisher database.
The four stored procedures are:
Two linked servers are also created on the first or publisher database when the tool is first run on the publisher database.
One linked server is created for the first or publisher server called SSWSQLTotalCompare_SERVERNAME. A second linked server
is created for the second or subscriber server called SSWSQLTotalCompare_SERVERNAME.
SSW SQL Total Compare works by utilizing the four stored procedures that are executed to check for missing records and/or
differences in the records. It also creates and updates an essential table called zs_TableSummary.
- MDAC 2.6
- SQL Server 7.0/SQL Server 2000
- SQL Server does not need to be installed on the target machine, it only needs to be on a machine on your Local
Area Network (LAN)
- Every SQL Server table has a column of the type unique identifier (guid)
- ntext and picture data types and databases that have a different collation order cannot be compared
