I need a better way.
Why do you believe you need a "better way".
What would be better in your estimation?
I suspect these tables are in different environments. I also suspect that the people who administer these environments would not accept the overhead of trying to compare tables in multiple environments concurrently. . .
The unload/compare will probably both run faster and cause less performance issues.
