Incorrectly reporting missing Extended Property

The only difference being reported is a table extended property. The table extended property is in both databases but is showing up as missing.

If I compare two databases on the same server it does not show the difference. This is correct.

If I compare two databases on a local server and a remote server, the remote server reports the extended property as missing.

The OrderByStatement is the one reported missing on the remote server.

    Hi,

    Is this discrepancy appearing in the side-by-side windows? If so, it may appear this way because if the extended property order is different, it may appear as the extended property doesn't exist, when it is really existing somewhere higher in the list.
  • I checked the comparison results again. When comparing a local to a remote server, the extended property is not listed in the side-by-side window on the remote server side. When I look in Query analyzer or select the table's extended properties it is listed on the remote server's database.

    No idea. What do you get when you query the database with the missing extended property vs the one where the extended property appears?
    SELECT * from sysproperties where name='OrderByStatement'
    
  • Select
    @ServerName +'/' + DB_Name() as varchar(35)) as ServerDBName,
    sp.type,
    CAsT(sp.name As varchar(20)) As XP_Name,
    CAsT(sp.[value] As varchar(45)) As XP_Value,
    Cast(so.name as varchar(25)) As TableName
    From
    sysproperties sp INNER JOIN
    sysobjects so ON sp.id = so.id
    Where
    sp.name = 'OrderByStatement'
