How to synchronize contents of two tables.

Key Points:

  • The data synchronization of the selected tables pair is one-way. In order to synchronize in both directions, it is necessary to carry out two synchronization procedures.
  • The data synchronization consists of two subsequent stages:
    1. Comparison for finding the data differences
    2. Synchronization itself - generating the appropriate synchronization script and its execution.
  • At the comparison stage, the program is using same rules and settings that are used for simple data-comparison.
  • The execution of the generated synchronization script can be launched immediately following the conclusion of the synchronization procedure, or it can be postponed and launched later.
  • The user is able to save the synchronization script into a file for further analysis and future use.

The Data Synchronization Procedure:

  1. Select the tables intended for synchronization from the left and right panes:.
    Figure 18: Tables selection
  2. Use Synchronize > Table/View Data menu command
  3. Define the synchronization parameters in the Synchronization dialog
    Figure 19: Tables selection
    • Synchronization options:
      • Insert missing record - Insert/do not insert the records that are present in the source table but are missing from the destination table
      • Update different record - Change/do not change the fields’ values in differing records
      • Delete obsolete record - Delete/do not delete records that are present in the destination table but are absent from the source table
    • Type of the executed operation:
      • Execute synchronization immediately - Run/do not run the prepared synchronization commands immediately
      • Save synchronization script to file - Save/do not save the synchronization commands, generated during the comparison process, into a file
    • Means of managing errors:
      • Ignore Errors - Ignore any errors, continue the procedure, and save successfully executed changes in the target table.
      • Up to the first Error - Stop the procedure at the detection of the first error and do not save any changes in the target table.
      • Up to End - Continue the procedure regardless of any errors; however, do not save any changes in the target table if any error is detected.
  4. Click OK to start the synchronization

The program will execute the synchronization procedure and notify of the results, at job's end:
