ApexSQL Diff is a sophisticated database comparison tool that analyzes the differences in tables, procedures, views, users and more between two SQL Server databases.
ApexSQL Diff/2005.12 compares complex database scenarios using unique features like Diff codes, RegEx object filters, Project Wizards and others.
Detecting changes and synchronizing two copies of a database that changes on a regular basis is a tedious and it's no easy task.

This tool allows you to synchronize your databases and integrate seamlessly into your build process.
