insert new records in tables from dataset to database


I have 2 tables in SqlServer 2008.

Table1: T1id, SomeData

Table2: T2id, T1id, SomeData

I am using DataAdapter.FillSchema to create shema of tables in DataSet. I created DataRelation on columns T1id in both tables.

Now when i try to Update Sql Database T1id in Table2 remains 0 and not the value of T1id in Table1.

I can successfully update Sql Database if i fill DataSet with records first (Using DataAdapter.Fill), but that's not what i want to do. I don't need "old" records in my dataset. I want to use dataset just to store all imputs from user until the proccess is done and then insert all those records "at the same time".

I think i'm getting it wrong with ForeignKeyConstraints, maybe UpdateRule is not set to cascade, i just don't know.

I have been trying to work this out for 6 days now and i'm about to break something on half.

Can someone please guide me to right direction, maybe post some sample, anything.... please!

SQL Server to SQL Server Compact Edition Database Copy

I recently switched from XP to Win 7 and am getting an error when using the SQL Server to SQL Server Compact Edition Database Copy wizard from johnnycantcode.com (link). I suspect that the problem is with the configuration of the path for the DQL CE dll. 1) Does anyone know where the configuration is set? It isn't in the GLT.SqlCopy.exe.config file in the local directory. 2) Has anyone got the program to run under Win 7? Thanks marc  

How to copy table data from test to production database

I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2 and I'd like to copy all data rows from one table of a test database to the identical table in a production database. The primary key of the table is referred to by other tables so a DELETE followed by a number of INSERTs won't do it because of referential integrity issues. What is the best method to replace the data rows in the destination database with the values from the source database? Thanks, Guido

Copy Database via SMO fattens up the destination database

I am moving SQL 2000 databases to a new SQL 2008 R2 instance. I am using the Copy Database Task, with the SQL Management Objects option. I was constantly getting the following error during the copy process: Then, I decided to remove any file growth restrictions on the source SQL server for this particular database. Monitoring the growth, I saw that on my new SQL 2008 desintation server, a database which the .mdf file was 1.5GB in size was continuing to grow past 40GB! Then I ran out of disk space, and the job failed. What in the world is causing this database to grow so fat? Is this is a bug? This also happened with another database of mine, in which the secondary .NDF file went from being 500MB to 27GB! Thanks, Reuvy

DataAdaptor/Dataset problems when no row present in database tables

Hi All, I'm trying to use a DataSet to maintain some rows for a table, and when I've finished my changes, send all changes to the database using a SqlDataAdapter.    I find if there are no rows in the table in the database then I am getting a 'Object reference not set to an instance of an object' when I try to access the table in the Dataset. Is there a way to work with a Dataset like this ie. I start off with an empty table and I wish to add rows, to access the structure of the table rows, build rows, then add them and do the update on the SQLDataAdapter. Thanks, Sinead Here is my code: protected SqlDataAdapter memberDA = new SqlDataAdapter(); protected DataSet memberDS { get { if (ViewState["memberDS"] != null) return (DataSet)ViewState["memberDS"]; else return new DataSet(); } set { ViewState["memberDS"] = value; } } protected SqlDataAdapter getDataAdapterForMembers() { SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(); conn.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["SiteDBConn"].ConnectionString; memberDA = new SqlDataAdapter("usp_GetMembers", conn); memberDA.SelectCommand.CommandType = CommandType.Stored

Create view that amins to tables of another database on the same sql server instance

Hi to everybody, I found a situation ever met before. I develop on Dynamics NAV 5.01 and I have developed a method to be able to see some particular tables of an external database. In substance it deals with a property of tables of Dynamics NAV. When I create a table in NAV, I can create it in 3 different ways: table common to all the companies table  for company or table linked to a view.    This last case is mine, on the same db of NAV I have created a view with some fields, I have created in NAV a table linked with equal fields and types. Until here all normal.    The view, however, aims to another database that doesn't center anything with NAV but that it is on the same intance of SQL server.    The consumer that accesses NAV is a consumer type database SQL Server and has the permitted db_public and db_datareader on both the database. Then he can read the views on the db of nav both on the db of the other database.    When it tries to enter from the console of sql server, with the consumer database, all it works, if I do it by NAV, it show me an error "The server principal "username" is not able to access the database "some_database_name" under the current security context. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 916) "    If I add on the database NAV to the consumer, the role db_owner,

Backup & share database tables

Ηι, What is the best solution for back up and sharing specific sql compact database tables to a central remote site. Hundreds of users will run an application using the same database structure, but each one will have his own data.  We need  each user to be able to synchronize his data to a central remote server,and to share them only with other users that he chooses by their ID code. Please suggest ways and technologies to implement the above.   Regards, Thank you, Viron.  

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2008 does not list all tables in database

When logging into SSMS 2008 to a SQL2008 database when I expand the tables in a database I only see a few tables listed.  I can login to the same instance with SSMS 2005 and all of the tables are there.  Is there a reason why this is this way?

I can do a select * from in a query window for any of the tables in the database via SSMS 2008 as well and it work fine.  It just does not display the tables.

query all tables in the database with slightly different query


Declare @Table_Name varchar(50)

FROM sys.Tables

OPEN table_cursor

FETCH NEXT FROM table_cursor
INTO @Table_Name

While @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
  SELECT * FROM @Table_Name

 FETCH NEXT FROM table_cursor
  INTO @Table_Name

CLOSE table_cursor
DEALLOCATE table_cursor

The above code gives error, maybe I am mistaken about the way cursors work.


But how can I acheive the same pirpose


I want to query all tables in the database with the same query in which the where condition will slightly vary.

The above gives this error


Msg 137, Level 15, State 2, Line 8
Must declare the scalar variable "@Table_Name".
Msg 1087, Level 15, State 2, Line 13
Must declare the table variable "@Table_Name".
Msg 137, Level 15, State 2, Line 16
Must declare the scalar variable "@Table_Name".



SQLServer2008 job created by Copy DataBase Wizard fails - cannot determine if job owner has server a


Trying to copy a SQL2000 database on server TUNA to destination server MOJITO which runs default instance of SQL2008 (at ServicePack1) via the CD Wizard. Resulting job fails on MOJITO with this in application log:

SQL Server Scheduled Job 'CopyDatabaseWizard_TUNA_MOJITO_1' (0x64AB69F2880A7E4DA3708546C33DFF40) - Status: Failed - Invoked on: 2010-09-23 17:05:04 - Message: The job failed. Unable to determine if the owner (CBMIWEB\johna) of job CopyDatabaseWizard_TUNA_MOJITO_1 has server access (reason: Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'CBMIWEB\johna', error code 0x5. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 15404)).

There is a credential on MOJITO defined for CBMIWEB\johna. There is a proxy on MOJITO that uses that credential. The job has one step and in the properties I have set the RUN AS value for the job to be the name of the Proxy. The proxy is established for SSIS jobs.

The "owner" of the job is also CBMIWEB\johna which is a domain userid in the local Administrators group of each machine (both TUNA and MOJITO). This userid has been granted the permission to Logon as a Batch Job on both servers.

TUNA is a Windows 2000 standalone server; MOJITO is Windows 2003. I can logon to each server as CBMIWEB\johna.

I don't know what else to do.
