You could also use a 3rd party custom component such as the Checksum component from Konesans to calculate and store a checksum for the five address columns you are interested in and then compare the checksum of the source columns to the checksum of the destination columns; if the checksum values are different then at least one of your source columns has changed.

This is a good solution. For good performance, you should consider persisting the checksum as a new column in the target table(s).


Absolutely Phil, hence I stated '..calculate and store...';-)

I should have read your post more carefully! The lure of the Friday-afternoon beer is already proving distracting Exclamation

....but...the OP specifically stated that they didn't want to go down the scripting route. ;-)


Yeah, but c'mon, all the c# code is already in the article Smile


:-D I know, but then again there is something to be said for 'if you don't know how something works, don't use it (in Production)' or words to that effect.
