Are you comparing the two databases?
Are the formats the same?
What rules are you going to use to determine a match - an exact match, 
or will you try to handle small spelling errors?
If there is a discrepancy is database A guaranteed to be right?
What about an address in B that isn't in A?

I'm not sure it's got anything to do with pgAdmin - that's just a 
user-interface to the database.

I'd write a small Perl script, but you'll need to provide more 
information if you'd like something more specific.
