Change database fields automatically according to date

Hi, I'm currently developing a software application for my client. Part of the project is to keep track of his stock's shipping status. The client must insert the stock's pick-up date, expected time of departure (ETD) and expected time of arrival (ETA). The stocks will be called out using Grid View and the status, being one of the keys of the database, will be shown. Before the current date reaches pick-up date, the status must show "in warehouse", and after the current date reaches pick-up date and is before ETD, status must show that its "on the way to the port", and after ETD and before ETA, "in freight", and finally after ETA, "arrived". What datatype should I use for the database and where should I program it so that it changes automatically accordingly ?

Change Database and Log Properties

Hello, I have the following T-SQL code when creating a database: create database DBFA on primary ( name = 'DBFA_Data', filename = 'DBFA_Data.mdf', size = 40MB, maxsize = 2GB, filegrowth = 20MB ), log on ( name = 'DBFA_Log', filename = 'DBFA_Log.ldf', size = 20MB, maxsize = 200MB, filegrowth = 10MB ) This is working fine when creating a new database. But how can I define this properties but on a existing database? Thanks, Miguel

Managing TypedDataSets when there is a change in backend Table / Stored Procedure / Database schema

Hi All, I am just curious to know if there is any easier way to synchronize the TypedDataSets with the chages made to backend Table / Stored Procedure schema.  I use Typed DataSets in my project extensively and I found them very useful and easier to code, but difficult to maintain  The difficuly I have always faced is whenever there is a change in a backend database table structure or stored procedure that is linked to any of the Typed DataSet in our project requires to recreate whole DataSet again by scrapping the old one. The backend changes will not be reflected unless and untill you recreate the whole stuff again. Is there any easier way to synchronize those typed datasets with the changes made to backend database schema or any other workaround that will not required to recreate the whole DataSet again.Hope above question makes sense. Any ideas.

EF - How to change database used by model

I created an Entity Frameworks model (.edmx). Now, I want to change the database that my model is using. How do I do that? Just change the connection string in the .edmx Properties, or is there more that is required?

Cannot change the collation sequence of a Database in SQL Server 2008 R2


I tried two steps below separately: restricted user ran for 30 minutes then I stopped the execution; They obviously could not run simultaneously. I only want to operate at the database and not the server level. Our other key db is already in the desired collation. We'd like to have equijoins work on tables with the same collation sequences, and not have to use ETL or individual ALTERs for each table involved.

Second point: is CP1 below a 2000 only collation? That appears to be a patently false assumption in another forum posting. It appears to be a valid 2008 R2 collation is the point.




COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS ;

How do I change application database from ASPNETDB.mdf to my own


I am using Visual Studio 2008 Express.

I did this simple test:

I created a new Web project with a simple page that has a Log In. There were no databases in App_Data.

I used the configuration tool to create a Role and User.

I refreshed the project folder and behold AspNetDB.mdf has appeared in the App_Data folder.

I have checked the Web.Config file and there is NO Connection string to this database.

So how do I move the Roles/Users application data storage away from AspNetDB.mdf to my own database ??!!

Change document version number via database


Hi all,

I was blocked by an issue of document version number. The customer wants to move a document from one document library to another. After the document is moved, version number should be kept the same and metadata values of each version should also be kept.

File.MoveTo(string newUrl) method can move file and keep the same version number but lose the metadata in previous versions. Only the latest version has metadata values. Also this method cannot move file cross site collections.


Following is my solution:

1. Upload all the versions along with metadata to the new location and then delete the old file.

2. Update document version number in database directly.

Finally the solution works well, but I don't know if step2 will impact any other default logic in SharePoint system. Below is the logic to update version number.

            SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection(connStr);
            SqlCommand cmd;
            string cmdTxt;


            cmd = cn.CreateCommand();

Change the default users for a new database?

Is there any way to customise the default users that have access to a newly created database? I have an Active Directory group that has been granted logon rights to the SQL server, but I need it to have read/write access to any new databases that are created on the server. I don't want to use the Mgmt Studio to grant the permissions. This is because we have an app that creates the databases, but it doesn't set the security. I want an easy way for the security to be granted.

Change Dynamic Data database connection string


I have recently started to learn Dynamic Data Web application.

I have built a Dynamic data Website with LINQ data access layer. When the LINQ data context was built over an existing SQL2005 database, the connection string for that database was correctly, automatically, placed into the Settings and .edmx Code for the project. It works, but it's a "static" connection string.

I would like to be able to use this one LINQ data access layer against both test and production databases without having to manually change and recompile the project's connection string each time.

Is there a way to pass/change the User connection string to the LINQ data access layer at Run Time so that destination database changes? Ot in Other words How can user can choose a database from a list of databases.

Autogenerated strongly typed datasets: change database



I have a data access layer in my application where I put all my *.xsd files (strongly typed datasets) that are autogenerated using Visual Studio 2010.

To be able to change target database I do the following manually in Visual Studio. Then I recompile and publish to web server.


1. Change database namn in connectionstring in Settings file under Properties in my DAL class library.

2. Find and replace database namn in all occureances of "DbObjectName="DBNAME.dbo.".

3. Find and replace database namn in all occureances of "DataSourceName="DBNAME.dbo.".


This seems to work but is not an optimal procedure so my question is:

There must be a better way, can I do this programmatically?


Best regards, Janhe
