I need to compare data in a sql db with data stored in an arcgis file geodatabase. I'm not interested in the spatial attributes, only the added text attributes. What's the easiest way to do this?
I can get the data exported to csv. But I can see this exercise will be repeated. And it would really make my life easier if I could also update data to clean it up.
I believe we run arcgis 10.1 or 10.2. I don't have arcgis desktop myself. Not sure if there are license limitations but installing it wouldn't be a problem.
I didn't want to influence the answer but I've been reading about gdal/ogr. And wonder if that's an option. Also I have no idea how hard it would be to install arcsde. And whether that could read/convert a fgdb on the fly.
