importing table with Access "memo" field to SQL

I imported an access database using the DTS wizard, into SQL 2005. There is a field in one of the Access tables that is a memo field, filled with a bunch of text including linebreaks. After importing, the field is indicated as the nvarchar(MAX) datatype when I check in SQL Enterprise Manager. The text in that field is displayed without line breaks, both in EM and when viewed on a web page. I changed the datatype of that column to "text" and now can see line breaks when I hover over a value in that column while viewing the table data in Visual Studio 2010's Server Explorer.But when I display the data in a ListView, there are no linebreaks. When I view my TableAdapter in my dataset, there are no linebreaks either.I must be missing something here? Thanks.

How to access the refrenced table fields in Ilist object of table MVC asp.net



I have 2 tables, master, detail. 1.master table have fields (id, username, plan)-->id is primary key (PK) 2. detail table have fields (srNo,id, worksummary, ... )--> srNo is PK.

I have created foreign key relationship from detail to .master table for "id" field.

the code is:

IList<detail> objDetail=new List<detail> (); 
IList<master> objMaster = new List<master> ();
string[] sarray = queryFields.Split('|');//

for (int i = 0; i < sarray.Length; i++)
string[] sfields = sarray[i].Split(',');

if (sfields[0] != "")

objDetail.Add(new _detail { Id = count , modify = sfields[1].ToString(), verified = sfields[2], I});


I have problem to add fields in "objDetail" using Add method. But I am unable to access the reference field "Id" , rest of the field of detail table can be accessed using objDetail.

How can I access the "Id" field from objDetail object to add in IList.

I want to solve this problem

InfoPath and Access - two parent tables and one child table


Hi there,

I'm trying to link an InfoPath form to an Access database, I want to connect the InfoPath form to 3 tables in the Access database but InfoPath will only recognise parent-child relationships in a series (e.g. the "Company" table is the parent to the "Customer" table, which is again parent to the "Orders" table)

I need to have two parent tables and one child table, though (e.g. "Customer" is parent to "Orders", but "Inventory_Item" is also parent to "Orders"). Is there any way to establish this in InfoPath? I'm using Windows XP, InfoPath 2007 and Access 2007.

Cheers, Patrick

Updating a List item field value in a SPD Workflow is setting Date fields to null

Hello everybody,I faced a very weird behavior while creating a workflow in SPD against a Document Library.Here is the case:1- Create a document library in sharepoint site.2- Add a custom column of type DATE.3- Upload any document to the library4- Edit the item metadata and set the custom date field to any date you want.5- Now using sharepoint designer, create a very simple Workflow with only one action that updates the current item "Title" field to any value. (Note: In my case I set the workflow to start manually and not automatically)6- Save the workflow and then start it on the uploaded item.7- Now check the value of the date column after the workflow is finished.8- You will see that the Date field is Empty... (very weird)Notes:   1-This behavior will not appear on a standard list. it is only appearing in a Document library.  2- I am using WSS 3.0 SP2 + MOSS 2007 SP2. Also SharePoint designer 2007 SP2Did anyone face this situation and does it have a fix, or am I doing something wrong here... Please help.Regards,Maheed

SharePoint 2007 to Access 2007 - Issues grouping by "Person or Group" field type/column

We are on SharePoint 2007 and using Access 2007.  The SharePoint list contains a column called Assigned Person, column type: Person or Group, single selection, displaying only the name 1) When we Open with Access and Export a copy of the data, then create a report from that table, we do not have the option to group on Assigned Person.  2) When we Open with Access and Link to data on the SharePoint site, then create a report from that list, when we group by Assigned Person... The same person has 2 groups - there are is no other grouping or sorts on the list, and i can't locate a correlation to another field to show why they would have to collections for the same person The Person or Group column sorts "from smallest to largest" as though it is a number field. The list is a task/activity tracking system we created custom for our needs.  We want to pull a weekly report, grouped by Assigned Person, but cannot get access to work.  We do not want to resort to anything more complex, as it takes a much longer process to have reports pulled by Chrystal or one of those types of applications.  And we cannot change out the field for something like a Choice column as the list already has a very large amount of content.  Can anyone assist? Is there a setting hiding somewhere that is causing the problem?

Specify width on EditorFor input field

I happily use the new variant of TextAreaFor that allows me to specify the width for the field. TextAreaFor<TModel, TProperty>(HtmlHelper<TModel>, Expression<Func<TModel, TProperty>>, Int32, Int32, Object) Is there any way I can set the width when using an EditorFor or TextBoxFor method? 

Problem updating a boolean field

I have a button in a listview that updates a boolean field for the selected record. The button calls a method (ObsoleteOffice) in my BLL that sets the field (IsObsolete) to true...please see below for the code. However, the IsObsolete field never gets updated, nor does it throw an error.  In addition, the method works with string fields just fine, but nothing happens with the boolean field.  I would be grateful if anyone could shed some light on what I am doing wrong. Thanks.   //Method: ObsoleteOffice [System.ComponentModel.DataObjectMethodAttribute(System.ComponentModel.DataObjectMethodType.Update, true)] public bool ObsoleteOffice(int officeID, bool isObsolete) { offices.OfficesDataTable offices1 = Adapter.GetByOfficeID(officeID); if (offices1.Count == 0) // no matching record found, return false return false; offices.OfficesRow office = offices1[0]; // office.DateModified = DateTime.Now; office.IsObsolete = true; //Update the office record int rowsAffected = Adapter.Update(office); //Return true if exactly one row was updated, otherwise false return rowsAffected == 1; }

xml as text will not save in table field in some cases

I have a stored procedure that saves 4 fields into a data table named xml.  One of the fields is called xml, and is just a text field.  Usually, my sp properly stores the data, but occassionally the xml portion of my record is not stored.  It's on a remote server, so I'm having trouble hooking up a debugger to it, but I may have identified some charactoristics of the data in the cases where the data is not saving into the field.  I think it has a lot of "......."s mixed in with the xml.  I'm wondering if SQL could be identifying this as some kind of security threat.  Any thoughts would be super appreciated. 

trouble getting dates right when importing Access table

I was given a bunch of data in Access and am putting it in SQL 2005 for an ASP.NET web app. Tryingto do a query to select only records where the current date is after the "postDate" field and on or before the "expireDate" field. WHERE (postDate <= CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) AND (expireDate >= CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) I'm getting no records returned even though there are some records that qualify. Tried using CURDATE() and NOW(), no difference. At this point I think it may be because the dates are not in the correct format. The columns were originally "Date/Time" format in Access and when I imported them into SQL using the DTSWizard, the datatype for those columns became "smalldatetime." Dates are in the format M/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS. I'm guessing the query won't work because SQL is expecting YYYY-MM-DD. How do I fix this? Been spending a depressing amount of time running in circles with this.
