Import table data using webservice

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi all,  I'm starting using web services in .net , I'd like to know how to achieve this:

I need to import table data into a database, currently what we do is uploading via ftp the text files, and then running a process in php in the webserver.

Could this be automated  by sending those text files (or xml, or whatever format is necessary) to a webservice as an argument, and that the webservice handles the insert and validating process of the data?

Also I would need it to be secure, ideally I should send it login validation.

Anybody can help me with this?

Thanks a lot!

How filter data from a webservice that returns a table by comparing dates


I have an infopath form that takes in brings in an entire table and I want to filter it on datetime by comparing records from a time span of dates that have already been assigned.  I have tried everything from doing it from the within infopath using equations to filter the datasource and also doing it programmatically.  I am to the point where I think it has to be done programmically (C#).  Here is an example of the XPath code I was trying:

(xdMath:Avg(xdXDocument:GetDOM("ISSOrbits")/dfs:myFields/dfs:dataFields/d:ISSOrbits/@Apogee[(number(translate(xdXDocument:GetDOM("ISSOrbits")/dfs:myFields/dfs:dataFields/d:ISSOrbits/@StartTime, "T-:+", "")) >= number(translate(/my:myFields/my:MissionData/my:LaunchMissionDateTime, "T-:+", "")))]))

It seem that only the first record (node) from ISSOrbits gets compared and not the whole dataset.

Please show me how to do this programmatically in C# or if there is way to do it without code.

P.S. I forgot to mention that table is brought in through a webservice that cannot filter data.


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.

Checkboxes from data table


I have a data table that contains some values for Certifications.  This table can be updated in a different part of my application.  On the web page I am currently working on, I would like to have check boxes appear for every value in the data table.  I have been struggling with this trying to use a For Each loop and I cannot get it to work for anything.  Any suggestions? 

I am using the following Razor syntax to obtain my data (I know this works because I can display it in a WebGrid):


var db = Database.Open("MyConn");

Writing Data to database with jQuery Forms, ASMX Webservice, & JSON - help!



Can someone point me in the right direction on how to submit data from a jQuery form to a ASMX webservice? I have gotten everything on the form ready to be submitted to the database and now I am stuck on how to send it over using $.ajax(). Everything I have read tells me how to get data from a webservice and display it with jQuery, but not the other direction nor how to access the json data within the within the webservice service(similar to a Request.Form approach with ASP.NET forms).

In other words: 

1. What do I need to do to my webservice to make sure it can receive data from the jQuery form. 

2. What do I need to do in jQuery to receive an acknowledgement the save on the server side was successful. 

I can explain more if need be, but if there is a comprehensive tutorial on not only reading, but also WRITING data with jQuery, JSON, etc. I would love to get pointed in that direction.

Entity Data Model and database view returning the same columns as there are in a table


When adding a stored procedure into the Entity Data Model I can select whether the procedure returns a scalar, a (new) complex type or one of the entity types I already defined. 

How do I do something similar for a view?

I mean assuming I have a view like this

CREATE VIEW FilteredFoos as SELECT Foo.* FROM Foo join ... WHERE ...

(that is a view that implements some involved filtering, but returns all columns from one table) how do I add it to the project so that I can use the entity set, but get the Foo objects, not some new FilteredFoo objects.

var foos = myDB.FilteredFoos.Include("Bar").ToList();

foreach (Foo foo in foos) { ...

Thanks, Jenda

[newbie] How to return a data record from a webservice (wsdl)?



vs2010, .NET 4.0

I have a webmethod which I want to return a data record (for example: name, surename, address, age, zip etc)

I wonder how to accomplish this. I think the solution is about creating an object which contains all the records serialized. And then the webmethod returns this serialized object. I'm not 100% sure how to accomplish this, if some of you good provide me with some tips, tutorial or link to an article explaining it, that would be great

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh
