I always have some trouble with multiple copies of my Access databases. During the development cycle, I always add and remove new items to them and at the end, I came across with a big question, "Which one is the most recent?". This also applies when I release a new version of my application, "How can I update my client databases without any damage to their existing datas?"... I had seen some tools for Sql server for this purpose, to compare and synchronize schema differences, but none for Access which I also use often in my solutions.Recently, I found a new tool called Klik! CompareLib and wanted to share my experience with this tool with you. Klik! CompareLib is simply a tool to compare and synchronize structural differences in Access databases. When you launch the application, a wizard style interface welcomes you. The first two steps allows you to make some inputs to specify the databases and some criterias on how to compare. The third step only contains a button which starts the comparison process. This process, as it's specified, takes a very short time. And the last step contains a grid which shows the differences in the database objects and at this step you can create the merge scripts to make the compared databases equal. After the creation of the scripts, there is another small tool called ScriptRunner which you use to apply the generated merge scripts. To apply the script, you only specify the database and the merge script file. Application of a script also takes a few seconds. My testings show that this tool really does it's job very well. A missing point is that it doesn't provide any method for generating reports about the differences in those two databases but I think this will be also added in the very next version. Another problem may be if you not only use Access as your backend database, while doing the other development in VB,C#,Delphi,etc., but also develop your forms,reports,etc. within it as Klik! CompareLib only works on table,query,user and group objects. If you would like to have more info or even make a test drive simply go to http://www.kliksoft.com/ . There you'll find a 15 day trial version and you are fully qualified to have support during your trial period.
