Merge Records Into Existing Solution

I was wondering if someone had some advice on how to merge records into an existing file.

 

I have an existing solution that is currently in use by my company.  I am often updating, enhancing or fixing issues within that solution as needed.  I do not want to work on the "live" version of the solution so I will download a copy from FM Server and use that to make the changes to the solution.  Meanwhile, users are adding records and data to the "live" version while I'm working on making the changes/enhancements to the copy that I dowloaded.  When I'm finished making my changes and have tested the changes to make sure they work, I have to then replicate what I did in the copied version to the "live" version hoping I duplicated the changes correctly and did not forget anything.

 

My question is, what is the best way to merge the updated records/data into the New & Improved version of the solution without having to copy the scripts, calculations, etc into the "live" version?
