how to execute ALTER table for multiple columns


I have an SQL table called tbl, im trying to add the columns A, B and C to it.

When i execute the command :

 addcolumns = "ALTER TABLE SqlCreatedTbl ADD A char(50) ;";


 cmd = new SqlCommand(addcolumns, conn);

conn.Open(); cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

The column is added perfectly and i can see it in the table !

However, when i try to add multiple columns, it does NOT work, it gives me an error..

the command im writting for adding multiple columns is the following:

addcolumns = "ALTER TABLE SqlCreatedTbl ADD ( A char(50), B char(50), C char(50) );";

the debugger highlights the line : cmd.ExecuteNonQuery(); and throws the following exception: Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Incorrect syntax near '('.

Entity Data Model and database view returning the same columns as there are in a table


When adding a stored procedure into the Entity Data Model I can select whether the procedure returns a scalar, a (new) complex type or one of the entity types I already defined. 

How do I do something similar for a view?

I mean assuming I have a view like this

CREATE VIEW FilteredFoos as SELECT Foo.* FROM Foo join ... WHERE ...

(that is a view that implements some involved filtering, but returns all columns from one table) how do I add it to the project so that I can use the entity set, but get the Foo objects, not some new FilteredFoo objects.

var foos = myDB.FilteredFoos.Include("Bar").ToList();

foreach (Foo foo in foos) { ...

Thanks, Jenda

How to create scrolling table for columns in a SharePoint Designer Data View


I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007 Data View they have added two more requirements.

1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place.  This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements I have it must remain to be just one list.

2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.

The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.

I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?

I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.

So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/  or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png

I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh

Computed Columns in Table Variables or Table Types

I was just looking for confirmation that computed columns can or cannot be used in a @Table Variable or User-Defined Table Type. I'm trying this: declare @testtable as table(  [testcol] as case when [testcol] = '' then 'a' else 'b' end,  [testcol2] varchar(100) ); insert into @testtable select '','someval' insert into @testtable select 'c','someval2' select * from @testtable It all parses fine, but during the first insert an error is returned Msg 402, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 The data types void type and varchar are incompatible in the equal to operator. Thank you, Paul

is Alter table a fully logged operation

Hello, A friend of mine has a very large table which has a column of type int. Since this table is growing very fast he wanted to alter the table to change the data type from int to bigint. when he did that, he found that he ran out of disk space on the t-log volume. (600 GB of free space). why did this happen? shouldn't the type change be a meta data change operation? why was the t-log so heavily used on change of type?

Want to show FormView in Edit mode with specific table columns depending on their Genre??

hi, I have  a table in my database called "Profiles". This holds data on Female and Male personal characteristics. On my aspx, I have a formview in edit mode which is binded to an object data source with a GetDataByUserId Select method which retrieves data from the "Profiles" Table via a DAL. The "Profiles" table has some columns which relates to females only and some just males and some are generic to both. See example below     UserId - / of Type GUID GenreId /  of Type BOOL. Hip Size (For females) Dress Size ( For Females) ChestSize (For Men ) TrouserSize (For Men) Weight ( For both )   When the User logs in , they go to an update Page which has the Formview in Edit Item Mode and contains drop down Lists which are binded to the Users Selected Value. The DDL are in turn bound to their related table such as HIP, Dress, Chest, Trouser etc. Objective If a female user logs in I just want to show them the (Hip Size) DDL  and DressSizeDDL in the Edit item template of the formview and not the ChestSize DDL or  TrouserSize DDL. At present the GetProfileByUserId returns all colums from the table My question is how do I do this and just show DDL which are relevant to the Female or Male Only. In some cases the user may not have selected an item in the previous form so they could also be
