Table Relationships.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Here is my dilemma. I have 2 tables 1 parent and 1 child. I established a relationship between the two tables based upon the primary key of the parent and the foreign key of the child. The problem is when I open the child table I am unable to enter a value for the foreign key. Is this standard behavior. Is there a problem with a column constrain. Thanks In advance for any help or assistance you can provide.


Another issue I was wondering if someone could give me some advice concerning. How would I construct a Stored procedure that can check the Primary Key Value of the Parent Table to see if it contains a value a user has specified in a parameter value in the foreign key column of a child table. If the value in the primary key column of the parent table = the value in the foreign key column of the child table then I want to insert a child record. I have seen a few examples that utilize the IF EXISTS KEY WORD.

SQL server for SharePoint and normalized table relationships

Reading the below posted information from a 2008 web discussion, does it follow then that the underlying SQL server for SharePoint 2010/2007 is unable to be used to setup/manage normalized table relationship databases?   Even though the underlying SharePoint data is stored in SQL Server, SharePoint is not a relational database. It is fine for managing documents. It is NOT fine for managing data except at the simplest unrelated "lists" level. … Take a table with three fields. EmpID, EmpFirst, EmpLast. In Access/SQL the data would be: EmpID,EmpFirst, EmpLast 123, Pat, Hartman 489, Elvis, Presley In SharePoint, it would take three rows for each one row in a relational table. The data would be: GUID, tblName, FieldName, Value sls, tblEmp, EmpID, 123 sl2, tblEmp, EmpFirst, Pat ake, tblEmp, EmpLast, Hartman ksl, tblEmp, EmpID, 489 qkl, tblEmp, EmpFirst, Elvis alajk, tblEmp, EmpLast, Presley

Database Diagrams and Table Relationships


I am using SQL Server 2008.  I have created a database containing ~50 tables and associated keys (primary and foreign) using T-SQL.  I then added all the tables to a new database diagram using SQL Server's SMS.  Is there any way to have SMS automatically add/show all the relationships among all the tables?

Thanks in advance for any help in this matter.


Export Visio Database Table Names to Excel

If you use the Enterprise Architect edition of Microsoft Visio for data modeling regularly, then there is a good chance that at some point you've wanted to export just the table names into Excel. You might want to do this to map logical ERD entities to physical data model tables, track project status by entity, or track overlap between database versions.

Using jQuery to Filter Table Rows

The project is using the .net GridView control, so I had limited control over the output HTML code. Still, I think this code can work for most tables. One thing to notice: you should use the class "filterable" on your table or on one of its parents for the code to work.
First, we need a text box:

RadioButton Groups, Table Rows And NamingContainers in asp.net

The RadioButtonList. Very handy for inviting users to select just one item from a list although because of the screen real estate it takes up, used less and less in favour of the DropDownList. In plain HTML, the browser knows to enforce the unique selected value amongst a list of radio buttons because they all have the same value for their name attributes.

(In which AJAX-enhanced CheckBoxes become more useful than RadioButtons but inheritance saves the day, and a simple RadioButton-derived control establishes the purpose of a control's naming container)

Import XML File to SQL Table

Here is a brief example of importing an XML file into SQL Server table. This is accomplished by using the BULK option of OPENROWSET to load the file, and then utilizing the XQuery capabilities of SQL Server to parse the XML to normalized table format. This example requires SQL server 2005 or SQL Server 2008.

First, the following XML is saved to XML file C:\Products.xml.

Create new sql table at runtime VB.Net


I want to create a new table to sql database at runtime.  The column names would be "Name", "Date", "Event".  I would also like to have one more column name "Image" but the problem is that since the amount of images will vary, I want the application to count the amount of files in the Multiple fileuploader and then add a image column to the table for the respected amount of files. 

For example if i am uploading 3 files in the multiple fileuploader, the names should be "Name", "Date", "Event", "Image1", "image2", Image3"

I also would like that table name to be name dynamically from the textbox Name when the user enters the information.

I have the following code to make a new table, but I dont know how to name the fields at runtime like previously asked please help!!!
