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.

Reviewer suggested common table expression instead of adding 12 fields

So during a code review a DB Mgr suggested that I use a common table function instead of adding the fields below. No idea how to possibly do this. Anyone have any ideas? Here is a code snippet that he wants to lose: SELECT   LP .leaseID, sum   (paymentAmount1+paymentAmount2+paymentAmount3+paymentAmount4+paymentAmount5+paymentAmount6+paymentAmount7+paymentAmount8+paymentAmount9+paymentAmount10+paymentAmount11+paymentAmount12) as restPayment FROM   leasePaymentScheduleDetails AS L inner join leasePaymentSchedules AS LP ON L.leasePaymentScheduleID = LP.leasePaymentScheduleID WHERE   paymentYear>=@curyear+5 GROUP   BY LP .leaseID   Any input is appreciated.

    How to INSERT new row values from two different sources, all fields from a table plus one additional

    --Loading the single row returned by a table valued function into a temp table works fine like this:

    DECLARE @myTemp TABLE (
     Names Varchar(25)
    ,Item_Count Integer
    ,Expense_AP MONEY

    SELECT * FROM @myTemp
    --My Question: what if I would like to also display the value of @techNumLoop passed in to ufn_FindSomeRow?
    --Then I add a field to @myTemp to hold it:

     TechNum VARCHAR(25)--added

    Datetime fields within a fact table


    Morning all,

    I'm currently defining a fact table in my first datacube and have a question (basic one albeit).  Can a datetime column be left in a fact table as a measure or should this be stored only within a dimension table?  The other columns I have left in thus far are foreign keys for the dimension tables.

    Any pointers appreciated.

    How to update table where id needed to be read through from another table.



    I have update statement.

    student (NOLOCK) ON student.ID = SPECT.ID
    ON CLSS.GID = student.GID
    WHERE student.PID =  '20201'
    AND CLSS.PID = '20201'

    However, student.PID  and ClSS.PID need dynamically reach through from table CLSS to get each row of PID.

    Here my table CLSS

    Rowid  Username    PID        gid         nit       sid      NEWSID
    7          cc                20201    00        1           AA       XX

    WSS 3.0 Making fields read only when editing an entry


    Is it possible to make specific fields in the EditForm Read Only so that once data has been entered it cannot be changed?

    I have name and address information that once input I do not want to be changed however other fields in the form will need to be modified several times so if I can make some fields Read Only this will ensure the user modifying will only be able to change certain fields.

    Some forums are suggesting Java Script however I am uncertain of whether this is the best or only option.

    Thank you

    OPENROWSET, dBase files and fields containing underscores


    I've got a couple dbf files (from Visual FoxPro) that I routinely import into a local SQL server (via OPENROWSET) for further manipulation.  I've been doing this for a while now, but today I realized that not all of the data is getting imported correctly.

    There are several columns that act as indicators, using a single character.  There are 15 of the columns, and generally anywhere from 5 to 15 of them may be populated:

    Record1 s w X f d + y

    Record2 s w X f d +

    Record3 s w X f _ y

    Record y s _ F b d

    ...and so on.  What I've noticed is that fields using a single underscore are getting imported as NULL.  To further complicate things, the fields following the underscore are then NULL as well, but for some reason, the OPENROWSET recovers, and the NULLs stop once the 15 indicator columns are finished.  So basically  a record that has "y s _ F b d" becomes "y s NULL NULL NULL NULL".

    Obviously I can scrub this file before importing it, but it kind of defeats the purpose of automating the import via the OPENROWSET.  I don't know if anyone else has run into this, as I searched the web and couldn't find anything, but any help would be appreciated. Just for background, here is the OPENROWSET command I use:


    List View Fields/Columns read only


    i programmtically add a view to a SP List. Within this view I want to make some columns read only to certain group of users. How should I implement this?

    Here is my code for creating an view programmatically:
    public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page 
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            SPSite mySite = new SPSite("http://spserv");
            //SPWeb myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb("/vst");
            using (SPWeb oWebsite = mySite.AllWebs["website_name"])
                oWebsite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
                SPList oList = oWebsite.Lists["list_name"];
                SPViewCollection collViews = oList.Views;
                string strViewName = "CustomView";
