Insert data from SqlServer Table to ExcelSheet

It works fine. Because information is put on Excel cells how is hoped. However, at least, with Office 2007 always ask when the file is opened if you are sure because the format of file has a diferent format from the extension.

Here the Example:

Insert data in parent and child table at the same time


I have two (parent-child) tables that are bound by a primary key (PK)/foreign key (FK) relation.each PK is identity (idStudent and idBac)

to insert data, i'm using an little application in c# i programmed myself where i insert these columns for the Student table: F_Name, L_Name, Age, Mobile, Adresse, City ,and  ( i don't know how to handle the idBac wich is foreign key of the other table wich still not inserted yet)

for the table Bac, i insert section, school, and city.

what i want is when i click on "OK" button, the idBac ,wich is a foreign key of the other table (BAC), receives the same idBac given the moment i inserted the BAC informations too ...

i don't have any problem wich ado.net ...i just want the right query/procedure.

thanks in advance and sorry for my english, it's not my mother tongue.

problem with data list when data is retrieved from table???



I have a datalist binded to an object data source which has a method



In the  data list Item template, I have put  a div with a heading that will not show if there is no language by that personId  in the database table.

If there  is data them problem is the datalist repeates the heading for each language instead of showing  just the heading above and the row of languages below. I have included all my code below if somebody could advise what is wrong. thank you.


Method in DAL

SELECT        PersonId, LanguageId,
 (SELECT LanguageName FROM Language WHERE (LanguageId = PersonLanguage.LanguageId)) AS LanguageName
FROM            PersonLanguage
WHERE        (PersonId = @PersonId)



 <asp:DataList ID="DataList3" runat="server" DataKeyField="ModelId"
        DataSourceID="ObjectDataSource4" RepeatDirection="Horizontal" >
        <div id="Div03"&n

How to INSERT GridView data into another table (besides the one it is bound to)??


Hi All,

I have a tricky situation that I just cannot seem to figure out.  I'm using ASP.NET 4.0.  I have two databases (let's call them Northwind and MyDatabase for simplicity).  I cannot modify the data in Northwind, but once I save a copy to MyDatabase, I can change it.

I have a GridView that shows all the tests associated with a patient.  I first populate the GridView, retrieving all the tests in Northwind.Test that are associated to a PatientID.  On a button click event, I need to:

  1. Create a new Patient record in MyDatabase.Patient (I've got this part done already).
  2. Use that newly created PatientID and INSERT all of the rows from the GridView into MyDatabase.Test.  I have the PatientID available, I just don't know how to retrieve the data from the GridView.
  3. (Ideally) I would like to then be able to load that patient record in the future from MyDatabase and be able to UPDATE the tests in the GridView to MyDatabase.Test.

I can load the tests into the GridView no problem.  But I have no idea how I would save that data to a different datasource.  Any ideas?  Should I even be using a GridView, or something else?

-Thanks in advance-
