Reporting in Data Compare

Hi Andrew,

There is no HTML reporting in Data Compare at the moment, but it may
appear in a future version. In the meantime, you can export Data Compare
results in Comma Separated Value format.

To program the SQL Data Compare COM objects, we sell a SQL Toolkit,
which contains the instructions and examples for programming the Red Gate
libraries. The details are on our website.

If you're familiar with Visual Basic, it would be possible to export the
results in HTML format if you had the toolkit documentation. The results
would be held in a collection that you could write to a file, inserting HTML
tags inbetween.

Regards,

Brian Donahue

    Hi Josh,

    Thanks for your post to the newsgroup. The only data export function in
    SQL Data Compare (aside from the migration script!) is the copy function. If
    you right-click in the comparison data grid, you'll see the option 'Copy'.
    That will put the grid on your clipboard in CSV format.

    Yours,
