Review of SQL Compare v3

New 'Find Duplicates Wizard'

The Wizard enables anyone working with a SQL Server database to identify and review duplicate data with ease. It is an exceptionally powerful tool with the modest price tag of $397 (approximately £230).

The software has a wealth of processing options, which you can read about when visiting or (in even more detail) in the free help file download which is also available on the web site.
