In Visual Studio 2010 "Schema Compare" and "Data Compare" features are available to compare schema and data between two databases. However in Visual Studio 11 only "Schema Compare" feature is available. "Data Compare" feature is missing.

This was closed as a duplicate since the team has an active work item tracking the delivery of Data Compare- I apologize for the error in the Resolved Reason. I've updated it to reflect that this issue is a duplicate, not yet fixed.

How is this "Closed as Fixed" when it has been 11 months since the official reply from Microsoft and there is STILL no data compare support for SQL Server 2012? We frequently use this feature and are being held back from upgrading right now because it still isn't there for 2012.

You're correct that there is no workaround for SQL Server 2012 Data Compare, sorry for the inconvenience. As I said before, this feature is coming soon to SSDT.

The suggested workaround does not work with SQL server 2012.

SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) is replacing the VSDB database tools in Visual Studio 11. SSDT has implemented a Schema Compare tool, which it looks like you've already discovered. We haven't yet created a Data Compare tool but it's in our plans for the near future. In the meantime, the workaround is the use the VSDB tools in the VS 2010 shell.

Please let me know if you have any follow up questions.
