LINQ to SQL - Validating if item is in Database, but if item is not items not inserting into databas



I am new to this, so bear with me.  I am writing an application in C# that uses LINQ to validate a datacontext off a textbox to see if the record exists already.  If the record does exist I inserted an if statement to advise the user that the record exists, if the record does not exist I would like to allow the record to be added to the database.  If I take out my else statement everything works fine as far as inserting goes, but I do not want to allow inserts in this scenario.  I have tried moving the if and else statement to different parts of the code but can't quite figure this one out.  Any help would be apprecaited, attached is the code.  This code is set to a button press.  As a matter of fact, if you see any other errors along the way please feel free to point them out.

Test Run: Testing SQL Stored Procedures Using LINQ


Language Integrated Query makes lots of things easier. Here we put LINQ, or more specifically the LINQ to SQL provider, to use testing SQL stored procedures.

Advanced T-SQL: Automate the Generation of Stored Procedures for Your Database


Design-time automation makes coding faster and ensures that all the procedures generated use the same naming conventions and structure. In an effort to improve their coding efficiency in a large SQL project, the authors wrote a set of design-time stored procedures that generate run-time stored procedures, and have used them in project after project ever since. Recently, the authors updated their procedures to make use of SQL Server 2000 features, including user-defined functions. This article covers the creation and execution of these dynamic T-SQL scripts to automate the coding of common database stored procedures.

Linq to Sql column mismatch using stored procedures

I'm using Linq to Sql to call some  stored procedures for more complex work; is there any way Linq to Sql can tell me when the output columns from the stored procedure do not match the properties of my entity object? It seems that Linq to Sql tries its best to match the columns and ignores any mismatches.Cheers

Security problem with cross database chaining and stored procedures

I have a situation whereby ProcA exists on database A, but ProcA executes about 20 stored procedures scattered across different databases. To further complicate matters some procs that ProcA calls also call other procs in other databases, this then presents the problem of cross database chaining where you can’t really write to a database from a proc that resides in another database. I am wondering how I can get around this problem, I know I can simply let open cross database chaining and the problem will go away, the other option is to create a proxy which is very complicated and wouldn’t work in my environment. Is there any way around the problem.

Displaying Image stored in rtf format in access database displaying it on crystal report

Hello, I'm working on a C# project combined with "Crystal Reports 10". When a user inserts something in a "TextField" in my C#-Program, it's saved  as RTF-code (Bolt,Pictures,Underlined,....) to a database.. So if they  reopen it in my "C#"-program they're able to see what they've entered  including their pictures .... But when I created a "Crystal Report"-file and combined it with the same  database used in my "C#"-program, it only show the formatted text and not  the pictures or images... Is there a way to show the "Picture" or "Image" they've inserted in RTF-code  ??? When I copy the code from the database in a simple Text-File and rename  it too "Test.rtf", it wil open correctly in word (with picture and  everything else)... So I hope there is a way to get the picture, Cz it's rather important  they've got a picture of the product they wanna print ...

Managing TypedDataSets when there is a change in backend Table / Stored Procedure / Database schema

Hi All, I am just curious to know if there is any easier way to synchronize the TypedDataSets with the chages made to backend Table / Stored Procedure schema.  I use Typed DataSets in my project extensively and I found them very useful and easier to code, but difficult to maintain  The difficuly I have always faced is whenever there is a change in a backend database table structure or stored procedure that is linked to any of the Typed DataSet in our project requires to recreate whole DataSet again by scrapping the old one. The backend changes will not be reflected unless and untill you recreate the whole stuff again. Is there any easier way to synchronize those typed datasets with the changes made to backend database schema or any other workaround that will not required to recreate the whole DataSet again.Hope above question makes sense. Any ideas.

No Return Type for a Stored Procedure in a Linq to SQL Data Layer

Hello. First, I don't know if this is the right forum section to post this in, but I couldn't fine a more suitable one. Feel free to move this if it's totally worng. I have a weird problem when using LINQ to SQL and Store Procedures with a return value... The problem is that when I drag my SP's onto the "Methods Pane" the property field "Return Type" is set to (None) and greyed out. And here's the most weird thing... I created a test SP yesterday wich returned SCOPE_IDENTITY() and it worked flawlessly. Dragged it onto the "Methods Pane", could play with the return type property (hence it was not greyed out) and everything was working out nice. I used a ISingleResult<T> and could fetch the .ReturnValue... Today I was going to contiune to create the rest of the SP's i needed with a return type but today when I drag my Store Procedures to my Methods Pane, I couldn't access the Return Type property... I even dragged the SAME procedure I used yesterday (wich then worked great) and now I can't get the dbml-layer to notice that there is a return value... I've tried to create new solutions, new Data Layers, used different databases/servers, but still the same problem... Don't really know if it's LINQ or something else that's causing this... This is how part of my SP wich I used yesterday to test looks

Return type of Linq to SQL Stored Procedures


Dear all,

I am using .net framework 3.5 and sql server 2008.

In my project coding, I want to call stored procedures in sql server 2008.

return value is the object list which references the entity.

But I have the questions.

If in the entity named as "order", is it matching the properties or created through entity constructor??

In my case, I have two properties and one constructor which match one property.

public class orders


orders ( string orderid)




public string orderid {get;set;}

public string orderno{get;set;}

Calling Stored Procured in SSIS from database moving data into another Database




I am just wondering if this is a feasible option within SSIS.

I have a source database on one server, a destination database on another server

The source database has a stored procedure which returns lets say 500 records. 300 are inserts the rest updates. (Based on some column)

So in SSIS I call this SP, following this im able to loop through the records returned figure out wether its Insert or Update and then move the data to destination table.
