There are a number of third-party tools for Access. One prolific source is
FMS, Inc. (http://www.fmsinc.com). But there are fewer SQL tools than for
other databases which rely more heavily on writing SQL from scratch. Access
provides the very handy, and very capable, QueryBuilder for point and click
creation of queries -- that is where most Access users begin (at least,
though many never even modify the SQL that results, they just use it).

I have no idea what these tools too. However judging from their titles these allow
you to compare databases to see what's different between them. If so there are links
to several at my website.

See the following page for a list of utilities to compare Access databases

No preferences as I haven't used any of them.
