Command line output explanation
"c:\program files\red gate\sql data compare 8\sqldatacompare.exe" /project:"C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\SQL Data Compare\SharedProjects\my-database-sync-project.sdc"
I couldn't find documentation on what exactly the "<<" "<>" ">>" indicators mean under the "DB1" and "DB2" headings in the output.
When DB1 is >> and DB2 is blank, I assume new records were pushed from DB1 to DB2. Fine.
However when I see DB1 <> and DB2 <> on the same line for the same table, I'm confused about what's going on.
Of most concern is seeing DB1 blank, and DB2 << which seems to indicate DB2 pushed changes back to DB1. I definitely don't want this to happen given that the project was set up in the GUI to go in one direction, from DB1 to DB2. I hope the command line version is not actually syncing some data the opposite way from DB2 to DB1?
