|Does SQL Compare 10.xx support MS Azure SQL Server?
I have tried simple compares and they always fail on deployment. Issues include apparent compatibility issues such as what I pasted below. At first, I took these as hints that I needed to update my database schema, but when it hit the aspnet_Membership_xxx tables, which are integral to Microsoft ASP.NET web sites, I stopped that approach.
It looks like SQL Compare doesn't "just work" with Azure. True or not?
|The following error message was returned from the SQL Server:
 Deprecated feature 'Table hint without WITH' is not supported in this version of SQL Server.
The following SQL command caused the error:
CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.aspnet_Membership_GetNumberOfUsersOnline
DECLARE @DateActive datetime
SELECT @DateActive = DATEADD(minute, -(@MinutesSinceLastInActive), @CurrentTimeUtc)
DECLARE @NumOnline int
SELECT @NumOnline = COUNT(*)
FROM dbo.aspnet_Users u(NOLOCK),
WHERE u.ApplicationId = a.ApplicationId AND
LastActivityDate > @DateActive AND
a.LoweredApplicationName = LOWER(@ApplicationName) AND
u.UserId = m.UserId

SQL Compare fully supports Azure. However, you may have programmability objects in a regular SQL database that you want to migrate to Azure like this stored procedure, and if they implement SQL-only syntax, the migration of these objects to Azure will fail.
The stored procedure will need to have to be changed so it will work on Azure as SQL Compare does not re-write SQL to conform to Azure.
Hope this helps.
