I have a production DB and a dev DB. I'd like SOME of the Dev DB changes to be propagated to the Production DB. The production DB also has some new columns and changes due to bug fixing. I need a Scema Compare Tool that allows for acccepting/deniyng changes at the column level.

Red Gate SQL Compare 9, can't seem edit changes at the column level either.

I suspect I'll have to manually modify the update script generated?

What is a recommended way to deal with this? Thanks.

Thanks for posting.

Unfortunately I don't think there's a way to achieve this. Version 9.5 will introduce column level mapping; this will let you map columns together and the main advantage will be if you're renaming a column - previously, SQL Compare would see a rename as a drop and create, losing data, but by mapping the old and new columns, it should be able to handle this without that happening.

What I don't think you'll be able to do is select just a subset of columns for the synchronization process, so you'd need to edit the script manually to stop columns from syncing if you do have some you want to skip.
