Hi,

I'm working on a contract and just imported some SQL Server 2005 databases in VS 2010 TFS. The Schemas imported just fine but curiously, when I try to do a schema compare, there is no option for that under the Data toolbar drop down or in the Schema Comparison right-click menu. The Data drop-down only has Transact-SQL Editor and Schema View as options. Am I stuck in some parallel mode that doesn't do schema compares?

I'm pretty green on TFS so it's probably user error, just can't figure out what I'm missing. I can see all the object definitions for the databases I imported but no option to compare.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Got it. They have VS2010 Professional which doesn't have the compare tool. Bummer.

Sounds to me like the latest version of SSDT isn't installed.

Tried that. It was a good idea but I don't get that option from the web installer--SSDT isn't in my pick list. Microsoft's on line documentation states that you have to have versions Premium or Ultimate to do schema compares. This company only has Professional.
