How to copy table data from test to production database

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
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

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) { ...

Error in Uploading Files to Access 2010 Web Database Table with Data Macro


Hi All,


I've recently published an Access 2010 Web Database to the SharePoint 2010 farm in my organization and I'm having the strangest problem.

I have a table which includes an Attachment field. When trying to upload a file through the web I get the following error: "There was an error uploading your attachment to the server".

Now, this table has a "Before Change" Data Macro, which basically executes a simple LookUp of several parameters from another table and writes them back to the "master" table. When deleting this Data Macro, upload on the Web works fine.

The thing is that when working from the local Access file (connected to the SharePoint) and trying to change a field in the table, the following error is received: "The Microsoft Access database engine encountered an error whil

You might want to do this to map logical ERD entities to physical data model tables, track project status by entity, or track overlap between database versions.

Checkboxes from data table
