Saving and Loading Schema Comparison

You can save the Schema Comparison document (the one that opens after comparison to show comparison results) for the future usage. The saved file has the .scomp extension and stores schema comparison information, including:

  • Source and target settings
  • Selected values for comparison options
  • Object filters
  • Selected values for synchronization options
  • Schema mapping settings

It does not contain schema comparison results or object DDL. When the file is opened, schemas are recompared. If target or source can not be found, the New Schema Comparison dialog box opens, where you should set source or target options.

Opening Schema Comparison Document
