How to find the parent table name ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

How to find the parent table name & its primary key column from foreign key constraint name.

This is the name of my foreign key constraint "FK_ChildTableName_ChildTableColumnName" i.e. FK_Dept_EmpNum
From this how I find the parent table name and its primary key column name on which I create this relation.

I am using MS SQL 2005.


1)Emp (Parent Table)
EmpId int Primary Key

2) Dept (Child Table)
DeptNo int Not Null,
EmpNum int References Emp(EmpId)

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

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;

Excel 2003 pivot table - parent showing grand total than the sum of its children

All, In Excel 2003, I have a product hierarchy, for simplistic sake lets say it goes A > B > C > model nbr.  I have filtered on model nbr 1.  I have the product hierarchy in my pivot table and unit cnt as the measure. Starting at level A in the hierarchy I am showing a total unit of 12000, if I drill down to B it still shows 12000, if I drill down to C it shows 100 and if I drill down to model nbr it shows me model nbr 1 with a unit cnt of 100. So my question is why are my parents not filtering the model nbr, it is taking the total for ALL records that have level A as their parent regardless of the model nbr? This does NOT happen in Excel 2007 or when I browse my cube in SSAS.

Cannot find Table 0

Hi all! Having a bit of an issue here where I'm getting the error "Cannot Find Table 0" when executing an INSERT INTO sql statement. The fishy part is that the code half works -- the new information is submitted to the database. Here the code in question:Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load If Request.Form("TextColContent") = "" Or Request.Form("TextColTitleEN") = "" Or Request.Form("TextColTitleFR") = "" Then 'This is to display the information in the text areas (from database) Dim rst1 'As New DataTable Dim rst2 'As New DataTable Dim rst3 'As New DataTable rst1 = ExecSQLSelect("SELECT Top 1 News_Item_Content FROM r_BI_Welcome_News ORDER BY News_Item_ID DESC") rst2 = ExecSQLSelect("SELECT Top 1 News_Item_Title_EN FROM r_BI_Welcome_News ORDER BY News_Item_ID DESC") rst3 = ExecSQLSelect("SELECT Top 1 News_Item_Title_FR FROM r_BI_Welcome_News ORDER BY News_Item_ID DESC") formOpen.Text = "<FORM Action='add_news.aspx' Method='Post'>" textarea1.Text = "<TEXTAREA Rows=1 Cols=48 Name='TextColTitleEN'>" & rst2.Rows(0)("N

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.

Find '' in a table in MS SQL SERVER 2008



I need to find white spaces in my table. the table contains 35 columns, therefore, I cannot check with AND or OR operator something like this

SELECT * FROM MS_Exchange_IS WHERE (TMZDIFF != '' AND Timestamp != ''..........)

Also I don't want to use cursors as it will greatly hamper the performance of my application.

Please suggest any other option.

I have two (parent-child) tables that are bound by a primary key (PK)/foreign key (FK) relation.each PK is identity (idStudent and idBac)

to insert data, i'm using an little application in c# i programmed myself where i insert these columns for the Student table: F_Name, L_Name, Age, Mobile, Adresse, City ,and  ( i don't know how to handle the idBac wich is foreign key of the other table wich still not inserted yet)

for the table Bac, i insert section, school, and city.
