DataSet Table Names

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hello, this is probably a stupid question, but is there anyway to pass in a Table Name to a DataSet?

I'm executing a stored procedure that is returning several recordsets. I have no problems w/ changing the DataTable's name from my Code Behind, but I was wondering if there was anyway the stored procedure could actually pass back the name of each recordset/datatable?

I hope this made sense! :)

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.

SQLCE table column DefaultValues don't show up in XSD Dataset designer

Using Visual Studio 2008 with SQL CE 3.5, I notice that default values in the creation scripts for the database tables are not reflected in the dataset designer XSD file.  For example, the following SQL script creates the non-nullable table column names "Content" with a default value of 'Image':    "Content" nchar(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT 'Image',But in the column properties of the dataset designer (XSD) panel, this column correctly shows up as non-nullable, but with a DBnull default value as follows:     Name: Content    Allow DBnull: False    DefaultValue: <DBnull>Am I missing something somewhere, or is this a VS bug?  Also, how do I get the XSD file to regenerate after schema changes in the database?  Sqlmetal doesn't do it.Thanks,    -BGood

C#: How to add a row to a child table with a DataSet backing?

On the back end I am using XML files, xsd schemas a DataSet(dsThingPrograms) and DataTables. I have a parent ->child table relationship defined through the DataSet designer as such:   things[RFID(pkey), name] programs[ID(pkey/autogen), name, path, thing_RFID(FK references things->RFID)]   In my code I have:   dsThingPrograms.things.AddthingsRow("lala" , "00ffe4" ); dsThingPrograms.things.WriteXml("path\to\things.xml" , System.Data.XmlWriteMode.WriteSchema);   which works fine. However the problem comes when I try to add a row to the Programs table. When I do:   dsThingPrograms.programs.AddprogramsRow("someprog" , "some\path" , <???>);   VS wants me to add a "dsThingPrograms.thingsRow parentthingsRowByFK_things_programs" where the <???> is. I've tried a bunch of things but I could not satisfy that requirement and can't even get the code to compile. What is supposed to go in there to satisfy the FK property?

Its posible to do a select without the table and the column names into a stored procedure?



I need your help. Imagine that I have two tables:

  1. ALUMN wich has three columns: IdAlumn, Name and Address.
  2. SPORT wich has columns: IdSport, Name, Players and Description.

For example the combination of table 2 and column 3 is SPORT-Players.

Creating Table from DataSet


Hello all,

Real simple one here.  I'd like to create a table on my Page from a DataSet.  It looks like I have it working properly, but what I'd like to do is interpret the columns, as well as be selective with which column to display.

            Dim dc As DataColumn
            Dim dr As DataRow

            For Each dr In ds.Tables(0).Rows

                Dim trow As New TableRow

                For Each dc In ds.Tables(0).Columns

                    Dim tcell As New TableCell

                    tcell.Controls.Add(New LiteralControl(dr(dc.ColumnName).ToString))



I would like specific columns, by name or position doesnt matter.

So if a column is = named column, then addcell

and also, the data needs to be interpreted: If value of column = x then response.write("y")

In sum, I dont want all the columns, just specific ones, then I was to interpret whats in that cell, and write something.

For Each dc In ds.Tables(0).Columns

How to add cells to html table from dataset


I'm trying to code an html table dynamically, adding the data from a dataset - -

(by the way, the output is on a mobile device)

I keep getting an error:
Multiple controls with the same ID 'tcell0' were found. FindControl requires that controls have unique IDs.

Here's the code (including what I've tried - commented out):

  Dim i As Integer

  ' For Each dc In ds.Tables(0).Columns

  For i = 0 To ds.Tables(0).Columns.Count - 1

  Dim tcell As New HtmlTableCell

  tcell.ID = "tcell" & i.ToString

  tcell.InnerText = dr(i).ToString() & "-" & tcell.ID  

  'tcell.ID = "tcell" & i.ToString


  'i += 1



if I don't add the cell.id, all the text gets added to t

Create a XML file from Database table using Dataset



I've got a SQL database with a table named contact with different column such Name, Address, email ...

I would like to generate a XML file based on the table data:


     <name> John</name>

    <address> 100 main street </address>



After some research it looks like I can use a dataset from that table to create my xml.

Being a beginner I cannot find the right steps / syntax to do so.

Is there any tutorial showing how to work with dataset and XLM?

Thank you for your helps
