Thanks for the list Wink

I would like to add my SQL Express Profiler. SQL Profiler it's and open source application that provides similar functionality the standard Profiler does. For those that use SQL Express or Workgroup edition it's a great tool.

I also have a huge list of free tools. It has gone beyond just SQL tools, but very server administrator focused. http://www.sqlwebpedia.com/content/free-sql-server-tools

This is kinda old article but still no tools you mentioned have become obsolete. I would like to mention SqlDBX personal which I think is very fast and good for quick querying.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Express isn't pre-packaged with SP1. You either install it with the regular download or (even simplier) with the Web Platform Installer (you can also install the Express database with it). Then just use Windows Update to get the SP1.

We have a central database that stores all data from independent companies databases. Does anyone know of a tool that compares data for two or more databases but with filtering functionality? I'd like to be able to compare the central database company A data to the database for company A, central database company B data to the database for company B, etc. The database schema's are identical.

Thanks,

M

whoops

i thought you said schema, not data!

Red gate's data compare does it quite well, and the tablediff utility is worth investigating...
