Custom List Row association to multiple documents - Design choices?

I want to associate custom list entries to muliple documents. Thinking about options.   1 row will have many docs, but one doc will only have one row. Possible? Trying to keep it simple with minimal development. I was thinking I could have a unique column or the id column in the list act like a key (somehow).. and  add a required column to the document list requiring it to tie back to the list entry.  Then a view could drive listing all the docs for a particular row from a link in the list built in a custom dataview. All the docs could be in the same library. Is the the best approach? Ideas/suggestions? Thanks.

SQL Server database restore with multiple logicalfiles by using t-sql

Hi,   I have set of database backups created in the production sql server 2005. I need restore these backups into another sql server 2005 by using t-sql script(stored procedure). Each database will have different number of logical files in it. The physical location of the target server may be different for these logical files. I know that i should use WITH MOVE 'YourMDFLogicalName' TO 'D:DataYourMDFFile.mdf' clause. Now i want to know how would i put it in a t-script stored procedure such a way that it automatically identifies all the logical files and create a physical file on the target server. User will supply source of bakup file and target folder for mdf,ldf, etc files. Do i need to populate the sql query as string by looping through all the logical files? If so how would i execute the populated sql query as string ?  Mr Genius


the database result is as follows DATE     code   class1 class2  class3 1/8/10     M1     10       20     30     3/8/10     V2      20       30     10      1/8/10      H1      1           2      3         7/8/10     ! ! 8/8/10     !M2    5      5      5       3/8/10     B2      4      4     4       1/8/10     V1      3      7     3       THE OUTPUT SHOULD BE AS FOLLOWS:- DATE           M1                          M2

VS 2010 could not find database at design time

Hi all, I'm having this problem.... Scenario: C# 2010, WPF, SQL Compact 3.5 SP2. I'm working at a wpf window which loads records from a SQL Compact DB and shows data in textboxes. At runtime everything works perfectly but since this morning (working on it last 2 days) i'm not able to edit the window at DesignTime. As soon as I open the window with the wpf editor I got the error (translating from Italian): "Impossible to find the database. Check the database path. [Data Source = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\thedbfile.sdf]" Now, in settings and app.config I have the connection string which is something like Data Source=|DataDirectory|\thedbfile.sdf I don't understand why and where NOW (only since this afternoon) at Design Time VS look that path for the database, while at RunTime it's ok. Again, I'm using Datasets, and I can preview data, ecc., as said everything is ok except the edit of the window which crash with this error.... thanks

Multiple images from database

Hi, I have what I hope is an easy question. I am building a report which will show some images of a site. Some sites may have 1 image stored in the database while others have more (the number varies). I can get the image control to show the first image but not the rest. Is there a way to get an image control to repeat (like rows in a table) depending on how many images there are? Thanks

Multiple Data Files Per Database Not Allocating

We recently read that I/O performance can be increased by creating multiple data files for a database: "As a general guideline, create one data file for each CPU" So went ahead and did this, and restarted the SQL engine, but still it is writing all data to the first file "Production_data_1". We would assume after we restarted it would reallocate the data across all four data files. Currently, the other three data files have 1GB of space allocated, but the engine is not writing data to the other three files. How can we distribute the existing data across all four data files? See a screenshot we took at: http://www.ftoperations.net/screenshot.png
