I am delighted to announce that a new version of SelectCompare has been released. Version 1.2 contains a number of improvements and optimizations, and two of them are directly available to the user:
Support for the SQL Server stored procedures
Now you can call a stored procedure that returns a rowset directly in the comparison query definition window. The valid syntax is
exec my_stored_procedure [parameter1[, parameter2, ...]]
Sort columns in the comparison results
User now can select either continuous or alternating view of the source and target columns. The alternating layout allows for quick visual comparison of values belonging to the same column on both sides of the comparison. To switch between the views, just click the appropriate option on the right of the screen.
Sort by column
Sort by query
As you notice, the results grid has been modified to include visual clues indicating the origin of the column.
These changes will make SelectCompare even easier to use - I hope you will enjoy them!
