Find all tables that depend on table with FK column

I need to write a stored procedure that when passed the id of a row on a table, will query all tables that are referencing that row and move the data to another row.  I am doing this because we have 2 seperate systems that are linked by a table and sometimes things get out of whack and you have to manually move information over. I have this query that can find all the dependent tables, my question is what would I add to this to obtain the name of the column that is the foreign key on that tables.  SELECT o.name[parentTable], o2.name[childTable] FROM sys.sysobjects o INNER JOIN sys.sysforeignkeys fk ON fk.rkeyid = o.id INNER JOIN sys.sysobjects o2 ON o2.id = fk.fkeyid AND o2.id <> o.id WHERE o.name = 'tablename' I want to do this as a query because I want the procedure to be able to detect any new tables that might have been added.

Display column from child table. Possible ?



I'am using dnamic entity with EF4. On a list page of a table, I would like to display a column containing information from a child table of the current element. Sample :

Order List :

Order Data | Required Date | Shipped Date | etc... | ... | Customer Name (foreign key with tostring() method override) | Customer Postal Code (Column that I want to add) |

I don't known how to do that. Is it possible ? Maybe I have to to create my own Metadata proxy that will add dynamicly a column on the MetaColumn list of the table.

Does someone have an easier or better idea ?

Thank you for any help.

DataGrid: Tailor Your DataGrid Apps Using Table Style and Custom Column Style Objects


One of the most enduring challenges in writing user interfaces is figuring out how to display large amounts of data efficiently and intuitively without bewildering the user. The problem becomes particularly thorny when the interface must reflect hierarchical relationships within the data that the user needs to modify. The Windows Forms DataGrid control gives developers a powerful and flexible tool to meet this challenge. This article explains its basic operations and shows how to extend the DataGrid to display columns of data in an application-appropriate manner.

DTA doesn't find referenced table form stored procedure with SP_executesql

Using the SQL2008R2 profiler and DTA connected to a SQL2000 server. I created a tuning tracefile with profiler for a certain db on the sql2000 server because I need to tune 1 table in the database referenced by 3 parameterized stored procedures which built a query depending on the parameters and is executed with an sp_executesql statement. When I run the DTA loading the tracefile I see the exec stored procedure events with it's parameters and the message Event does not reference any tables. And that's it. The DTA generates no Recommendatioin at all. How can I get the exact sql statements in the tracefile so the DTA can do what he needs to do? Regards

I have 3 triggers defined on an sqlserver2008 table and I can't find them with c#

I've got the code below and when I run it, it always says there are 0 triggers in table.Triggers.  I added some debugging code checkin the table.HasDeleteTrigger, etc. and from that, I get the exception: "To accomplish this action, set property HasDeleteTrigger." when I try to set it to bool hasDeleteTrigger. I can get stored procedures find, just not triggers. Below is my problem code: foreach (Database database in databaseCollection) { if (database.Name.Equals(catalogName)) { // first we need to delete triggers associated with all tables that begin // with our prefix. we can skip our the framework tables because those // don't have triggers on them // grab all tables, filter for non prefixed ones in foreach loop so we can delete triggers from non prefixed ones results.AddRange(from Table table in database.Tables select table.Name); foreach (var tableName in results) { var table = new Table(database, tableName, CrSyncDbSchemaName); table.Refresh(); bool hasDeleteTrigger = table.HasDeleteTrigger; bool hasAfterTrigger = table.HasAfterTrigger; bool hasInsertTrigger = table.HasInsertTrigger;

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

How to recover from Derived Column Transformation Editor corrupting table metadata?

Hi there, In attempting to use the DCTE to replace the value in a field with a trimmed version (SSN = trim(SSN)), it seems that my meta-data has become corrupted by the Derived Column drop-down list. As a result, #1: I no longer see my incoming SSN field in the "columns" tree, and any reference to it is deemed "invalid", even though it's value does make it out of the Data Transformation process. How can I get back the reference to this field without redoing this entire task? And, #2: in the process, DCTE created new columns with "SSN" prefixed by the task name, such as "trim character fields.SSN". How can I delete these? It seems that one slip of the mouse in this form can lead to irreversible corruption of the meta-data, which the "debugger" then references and uses to "invalidate" subsequent work. I have tried everything I can think of to refresh this, including using the "Advanced Editor" and reloading the entire package. Any ideas? Thanks, Karl Kaiser

How to get column value difference of rows in same table

Dear all, I need a TSQL statement to find the difference of values of two rows in the same table, by taking into consideration some conditions. I have the following rowss in a table named table1 dbname  sqlinst     size1   ddate sqldb1    inst1        200    1/1/2009 sqldb1    inst1        250    1/1/2010 sqldb1    inst1        170    1/1/2008 sqldb2    inst2        300    1/1/2009 sqldb2    inst2        340    1/1/2010 I need to find the difference between size1 values, for columns where their dbname and sqlinst are the same. I also need to define in TSQL that the ddate of row from where I subtract (size1) from is 1/1/2010 and that the ddate of the row I subtract (size1) is 1/1/2009 (e.g. in the above example: for sqldb1 inst1, I need to perform 250-200 and ignore 170, and for sqldb2 inst2  340-300). Please let me know if you have a solution for this. A million thanks!
