After comparing schemas, the differences are shown in the Schema Comparison document. In the upper part, you will see the names of compared databases and their connections. Source schema objects are displayed in the left part and Target schema objects are in the right one.
dbForge Studio for SQL Server automatically sets different statuses for compared objects to help you quickly analyze the differences. The statuses are as follows:
If a Source table has partitioning and a Target SQL Server server does not support partitioning, table comparison status depends on the table structure differences. If the table exists only in Source or has other differences than partitioning, it has Only in Source or Different status and can be synchronized with Source except for partitioning. If the tables in Source and Target have the same structure except for partitioning, the partitioning is ignored and the table comparison status is Equal.
For each compared object Studio for SQL Server automatically sets the operation in the Operation field to apply after the synchronization. Based on your needs, you can change it and select the required one from the drop-down list in the field. The following operations are available:
If you do not want to synchronize some objects, unselect check boxes for them in the grid.
To exclude several objects from synchronization or include them, highlight these objects in the grid and select the Exclude Selection or Include Selection options from the menu or press the SPACE key to include/exclude selected objects.
By default, all compared objects are included into synchronization.
