Synchronizing databases

I have a SQL Server 2005 web database and a local SQL Server 2005 database. I want a tool that can synchronize both the database from the source (web) to the target (local).

This tool works really well, although I haven't personally tested it with SQL2005:

1. SQL Express and workgroup versions don't have the replication feature.

2. An existing database may not have it enabled, and maybe they don't want it enabled.

3. It is a one-time synchronization, not an on-going constant replication.

If they want on-going replication, then they should use the SQL Server replication.

The synchronization I want to do is on a regular day-to-day basis.

You can make your own tool to do it with Microsoft Synchronization Services for ADO.Net (currently in Beta).

If you don't want to use a beta toolkit, you can always study Microsoft Sync services to figure out how to do it yourself with straight SQL. It's not that hard.
