Bug: Does not change column type from nvarchar to ntext


Scenario: If you create a table with a column of type nvarchar, populate it with some content and try to modify it using the WebMatrix editor, from nvarchar to ntext, it does not display any error message or warning that this is not possible. It silently saves and reverts the change, back to nvarchar. Wasted some hours on this issue as I thought my column was ntext, but in fact was still nvarchar.

Expected behavior: It should change to ntext, or if SQL CE doesn't support that, it should notify the user that no change was applied.

dynamically change column names in Crystal reports


I need to develop 3 pages.

On the first page user defines atmost 7 column names to be displayed on the report. I'm saving these names in a Sql DB table 'Columns' with Column_Nm and Column_ID as Table columns.

On the second page I'm retrieving column_Nm from the table and displaying them on the page so that the user enters the data. This data is saved in another table 'Summary' with the Columns column1 through column7.

on the 3rd page I need to show a report of 'Summary' table.

How do I dynamically replace column1 through column7 names with that of 'Column_Nm' on the report?

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

DataGridView>Edit Columns> Column Read Only property is unwilling to change

Hello, I am facing the following mystery: When changing the read only property of a column to false and reopening the "edit columns" window, it mysteriously turns back to true. Even when closing the designer and changing it in the designer code, the resulting execution does not allow edit, as well as when re-opening the designer you see true again.             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.DataPropertyName = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.HeaderText = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.Name = "numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.ReadOnly = true;//False is required We thought it might be related to data binding. rebinding the grid did not help as well. The is no other place in the code where it changes. Please advice, Thanks

Change Default Column Value programatically

On a Document Library Settings Page, there is a new setting in SP2010: "Change Default Column Value". Changing the default value of the Field is different from this value. Does anyone know what this value is and where to set it programatically? Also, what libraries is this setting available on? This code updates the field's default value but not the property mentioned above: SPField field = list.Fields["Column"]; field.DefaultValue = "DefaultValue"; field.Update(); Thanks!

How do I change the order of column names in EditForm.aspx

I'd like to change the order of the columns on EditForm.aspx so that it is Title, Body, Category, Publish and De-Publish . Changing the All Items view doesn't do it.

what is stored the guidlocal column in MSmerge_genhistory table (MS SQL Server 2000)?

In MSmerge_genhistory table there is a column called guidlocal. I noticed that for a large subset of the records on both the publisher and the subscriber, the value in this column is '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'. What does it mean? BOL says that guidlocal is: "Local identifier of the changes identified by generation at the Subscriber." but I still can't make it out what does '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000' mean?

How to change row value of column before rendering on to the report

I have a detail section in report. I am perfectly able to retrieve all the data from the Sharepoint List into datatable and bind it, to generate reports inside the details section.
All the columns and related row data are getting displayed as reports in to the detail section.
But, my issue is, I want to change the row data for a particular column before rendering on to the report.

for instance, if column named Product has some values, I would like to display these values with different string name based on a switch condition. How do I achieve this?

Error when change single column collation


I try to change a collation on column FirstName on table Person. Then I got following error:

Msg 5074, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The index 'IX_...' is dependent on column 'FirstName'.
Msg 4922, Level 16, State 9, Line 1
ALTER TABLE ALTER COLUMN FirstName failed because one or more objects access this column.

So should I drop the index before the change and create it again after the change? Any other possible impact on existing data for such kind of change?

Alter a replicated column


Hi all,

I've a transactional replica scenario which basically has one pubblication (with some table) and a lot of subscriptions. All is working fine from some months. Now I've to alter a column of one of the replicated table: now it is a varchar(40) and it will be varchar(500). When I try to execute the sql script to alter that column I receive an error because the column is replicated. I think I've to drop all subscriptions, alter the column, rebuild the subscriptions. Is there a fast way?

Thank you all
