Examining the Differences

When you start a schema comparison in DatabaseSpy, all items in the comparison components are expanded and scrollbars are displayed so that you are able to scroll through the items and check for differences. DatabaseSpy uses icons to identify tables that contain differences, and color coding to indicate the particular difference itself. So, if you are examining your comparison result for differences, we recommend a top-down approach: Start at the top and collapse any table that does not contain differences. If a table with differences appears do the same on item level, that is, collapse all the items that are equal on both sides of the comparison. Eventually, only different items in tables that contain differences are displayed.
