The two databases can have different format i.e. MS Access, SQL Server and even have different structure i.e. different table names and different field names.

Data Merge PRO! uses a user-defined duplicate criteria to decide which records are duplicates. It is designed to work with any popular database, but currently has only been tested extensively on Access and SQL Server. If you are interested in trying it with other databases let us know

When two databases are merged, all records in the source database will be used to indicate how many duplicates may exist in the destination database based on the user defined duplicate criteria. The user can then decide whether to add the source record into the destination database.

This screenshot below shows the result of merging Northwind with another SQL Server database.

Sample Result

With the merge result, the user can decide what to do with the source data:

  • Add to the destination without any change.
  • Don't Add to the destination database.
  • Compare with the destination data first and modify before adding to destination database.

  • User Defined Duplicate Criteria: decide which records are duplicates based on same field value.
  • User Defined Insert: Instead of simply insert data from a source table to a destination table, you can define other action, i.e. while inserting a record into client table, a related record is inserted to client contact table.
  • Loading All fields with the same field name automatically to save you manually mapping from source to destination field by field.
  • Editing destination database: When you see an error in the destination database, you can correct it directly.
  • Partially update destination database: When you see the difference between the source and the destination, you can just update that different parts. i.e. A client's address may have changed, but the name is the same, in this case you can only update the address part instead of inserting the whole record.
  • UDL wizard: Launch an UDL wizard to construct a connection string.


Data Merge PRO! allows you to set a default destination database, so that when a new merge is created it loads all default destination database information. Data Merge PRO! also allows you to set how many records to process on each cycle.
