Hi There

Does Sql Compare have to do a full compares everytime, i see nowhere in the comparison setting where i can compare only say sp's or functions, or a specified list of tables or 1 specific object in Sql Compare..

Bottom line is there anyway i can specify only certain objects to compare before running the compare.

If not will this option be available anytime soon ?

    SQL Compare needs to register every object in the database. Once that's done, you can choose what will or will not be synchronized.

    In previous versions (2.03-) you could choose to script certain objects, but that feature was removed to prevent problems happening when trying to generate scripts in dependency order.

    We may look at allowing subsets of objects to be registered again sometime in the future for other reasons, though.
