edited January 3, 2006 8:01AM in SQL Compare Previous Versions

Our database has more then 1000 objects.
If I need to select only 300 of them to synchronize, it will take long time clicking those checkboxes one by one.
Would be nice to have multiselect ability as well as custom filters.
Also we need to synchronize primary keys, but ignore other indexes.

Please let us know if/when you are going to implement it in your future releases.

    That sounds possible. We are probably not going to change the GUI in the next version because the SQL 2005 support took all the priority. The version after that, maybe.

    I'll pass on the suggestion about the primary keys, but as far as I know a primary key is lumped in with the rest of the indexes because it exists in the database's sysindexes table.

    I second the part about custom object filters. We have a database that is used by two different programs. I am in charge of one but not the other. Due to this fact, there are about 20 tables that I never want to touch. Although SQL Compare is an amazing product, it would save me time on the order of 15 minutes a comparison if I could by default ignore this set of objects on any compare. This would make a great product even better!

    Thanks! We'll probably implement this in the user interface in version 5.
