For prototyping purposes, is there a tool that reads a database's schema and generates (simple) table editor that allows manual editing of data. It would be good if the tool somehow made it easy to add foreign key values to reference data e.g. gender, status, ...I can kind of do this using Management Studios "Edit Top 200 Rows", but I was wondering if there is a more user friendly tool out there.
Is there possibility to edit easily data type "text" field using standard tools such as SQL server 2005 Management Studio or Server Explorer in Visual Studio 2005 Professional. I want multiline editing akin to multiline textbox in Windows Form. I understand that something may be written/generated in Windows Forms , but I want this possibility for any table. My pressing "Enter" to create another line for in-place editing just leaves a text cell for the tools mentioned above.
I've accidentally done something to my install of Management Studio that is making query editing very difficult. I must have used a weird key combination to enable some feature that is now opening an Intellisense like window with suggested keywords or column names. I've tried every option I can find to disable this and even tried all the <ctrl> key combinations from A-Z to try to turn this off. How to have the editor revert to the "default" behavior as installed?
I've received several replies about disabling Intellisense or changing the Intellisense options and I've already done this to no effect. I've also not installed any 3rd party tools. I was editing queries when the problem began and I think I had hit a <ctrl> or <alt> key combination key that started this problem.
Hi All !I open a table in Query Analyzer by right clicking on it andselecting 'Open' and when the data is displayed in the view pane Iwould like to be able to edit it. It seems however that tables markedas read only (as shown on the top bar e.g. SQL Query Analyzer - [OpenTable ServerName.DBName.dbo.TableName(read-only)] ) can not be editedwhereas the one that do not have that attribute infront of the name Ican edit. Is there a way I can change the read only attribute of atable so that I can edit data directly in the view pane?Please let me know if there is !Thanks a heap ! :)Harkirat
If on the source I have a new column, the script generated by SqlPackage.exe recreates the table on the background with moving the data into a temp storage. If the table is big, such approach can cause issues.
Example of the script is below: in the source project I added columns [MyColumn_LINE_1] and [MyColumn_LINE_5].
Is there any way I can make it generating an alter statement instead?
BEGIN TRANSACTION; SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL SERIALIZABLE; SET XACT_ABORT ON; CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tmp_ms_xx_MyTable] ( [MyColumn_TYPE_CODE] CHAR (3) NOT NULL,
The same script is generated regardless the table having data or not, having a clustered or nonclustered PK.
Is there anyway possible to edit table design with data already entered in the table.If not, is there anyway I can cut and paste the info back in. Ive tried importing to access and then back to SQL, however, when i tried to view my table design in ASP.NET webmatrix, it gave me an error.
I want to get (SELECT??) data from a db (SQL), edit the data (+1) and then update (UPDATE??) the table with the edited value. How do I get the value from the db and then edit it and then update the field in the db?? Does someone has an example so I get on the way??
We have a SQL Server table that needs to be maintained by the actuarial department. Therefore, I was going to have them make changes to the table using something easy like Microsoft Access 2000. When I go into Access and create an ODBC link to the table, I cannot change the data. (i.e. The insert new record feature is greyed out.) I CAN change the data via Enterprise Manager, so I don't think it is SQL Server security. Any other ideas?
I use the SQL Compact Edition 3.1 as database for a desktop application. Everything works fine, but is it possible to edit the data (e.g. tables and views) in the SQL Server Management Studio? I can make a connection to the SQL CE database, but I can only edit the objects of a table. The option 'Open Table' as in SQL Server (2005) is not avalible? Does anybody know if it posible to edit the data with the Managementstudio (express)?
Hello:I have an Access 2K form I built from a SQL Server 7.0 view. I want tolock certain fields in the database from users so they can see them onthe views and forms, but NOT be able to edit them.I've looked in BOL, MS SQL Server web page and SQL Server 7.0 books andcould not find how to do this.Any advise will be greatly appreciated.Thanks,Richard
This is very similar to the post: http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1901076&SiteID=1
I am trying to do this. Basically, if the field I am checking contains a space - not an empty string - I want to assign it an empty string so it will get converted to NULL when it hits the SQL destination. The space character from the source is causing the rows to fail I want to force a NULLin the database as a "workaround" from something I am working on.
I thought I had this set up correctly, but it is not working. I have the field in question as an input field set to ReadWrite
If Row.[COLNAME].ToString = " " Then Row.[COLNAME] = "" End If
I am getting the following error:
[Assign District Code ] Error: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.ScriptComponentHost.HandleUserException(Exception e) at Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.ScriptComponentHost.ProcessInput(Int32 inputID, PipelineBuffer buffer) at Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.ManagedComponentHost.HostProcessInput(IDTSManagedComponentWrapper90 wrapper, Int32 inputID, IDTSBuffer90 pDTSBuffer, IntPtr bufferWirePacket)
Hi, I think the title explains it all really. I cannot configure the SqlDataSource to add Insert, Update and Delete statements - not through the wizard anyway. The view combines two tables, each containing 3 columns. I have tried using different combinations of columns, and ended up selecting all of them (making sure the foreign key column of the first table was given a different alias to the primary key column of the second table) but I still cannot enable editing. Cheers, Patrick
I have several DTS packages that connect to various Oracle databases. An upgrade has recently been done to one of the databases from 7.3 to 8i. The other databases were always 8i. Last week, I could edit data transer tasks normally, this week, DTS hangs and I have to use task manager to kill the process. It worked fine last week. I can successfully run the packages, I just can't edit them. I have no trouble editing or running packages that connect to databases other than the one recently upgraded. I have tried both OLE DB and ODBC connections with the same results. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
SSIS seems to automatically set the metadata type and for "typed" sources like database and XML connections it seems to take whatever the source column datatype is. If you use a cast or convert in the your source SQL query, it will not change the datatype of the metadata. This becomes an issue when doing things like merge joins on data from different sources and the join columns are different types (e.g. a ZipCode in one system is a varchar and it is an int in another system). I've been working around the issue by editing the XML code and changing the datatype there. Is there any way to do this through the GUI?
Hi,I have an Access application with linked tables via ODBC to MSSQLserver 2000.Having a weird problem, probably something i've done while not beingaware of (kinda newbie).the last 20 records (and growing)of a specific table are locked - cantchange them - ("another user is editing these records ... ").I know for a fact that no one is editing records and yet no user canedit these last records in the MDB - including the administrator -while able to add new records.Administrator able to edit records in the ADP (mssql server) where thetables are stored.Please help, the application is renedred inert .Thanks for reading,Oren.
When my colleague makes any change to a query containing a derived table, the word 'WITH' followed by a lot of graphical characters appears after the alias, rendering the query unusable. We have tried this with various existing and new, simple queries, all to no avail. We are editing the queries in Visual Studio 2003, and he does not get this effect when using Visual Studio 2005. I can edit the query in 2003 on my laptop with no ill effects.
I'm having a real hard time coming up with a solution to this problem. I created a custom gridview control from Dino Esposito's "Extending Gridview" article which autogenerates a checkbox column that allows for multiple record selection. Once a user checks a box, the entire row gets selected. I added a dropdown list on the top of the page that has only two options, "Yes" or "No". What I'm trying to do is update a boolean column called "contract" (I'm using the Pubs sample database) for all selected rows (via checkboxes checked) depending on whether the user selects "Yes" or "No" from the drop down menu. For example,1) the user selects "No" in the dropdown2) The user checks all rows in the checkbox column for which he wants the all the values"contract" field set to "No"3) The user then clicks on a button called "Submit" and all selected records get updated to "No" under the "contracts" column. The idea is to allow the user to change the boolean values from a field for multiple records. Hence, making individual cells editable is pointless. Anybody have an idea how to go about this?
Hello, i currently have a gridview that is populated with data from a SQLServer datasource. I have put an output mask in the select statement, so the date and time attributes are displayed in the format i prefer them to be in. SELECT PatientNo, ConsultantName, HospitalName, CONVERT (varchar, Date, 101), CONVERT (varchar, Time, 8) FROM [Appointment]; However when i click the 'edit' link for a record in the gridview, i am unable to edit the date/time attributes and when i click update to confirm any changes to the other attributes, the values in the date/time attributes are emptied. How can i solve this update problem. I'm guessing i need to configure my SQL UPDATE statement, but bit stuck how i do this. Please help! Thanks, James
I have a sql server 2005 database with Delphi 2006 in the front end and for querrying and reporting we use MS Access 2003 by connecting to this database via ODBC connection. I recently found out that the SQL Server 2005 data connected thus can be edited (updated) from MS Access. I do not want end users to modify/update the SQL Server 2005 data from MS Access while I also want them to have the ability to insert/update/delete rights using the appropriate application interface. For now, I am handling this by creating a user id that is not permitted to update, insert and delete and using the same account in the ODBC. Is there a way in SQL Server 2005 you can control insert/update/delete rights for all users that will be applicable only in the ODBC mode?
I am running SQL Server 2005 x64 Enterprise under Windows 2003 x64 Enterprise. My current backup strategy uses T-SQL jobs run by SQL Agent (writes out *.bak files) and then I have an Integration Services job that copies the *.bak files to our NAS device. I have performed a restore without issue. The jobs are all automated every four hours via SQL Agent. Is this a sound strategy or are there additional benefits to using 3rd party tools? If so, what are the advantages and which tool provides them?
Login failed for user 'TOSHIBA-USERASPNET' I know that the file persmission for the web application have to include aspnet, so i keep resetting the folder permission for aspnet in file manager, but the login failed keeps coming back every day or two problem is after working with VS05 Pro, SQL Server Management Studio CTP, somehow the aspnet persmission get changed, use alot of sqldatasource wizards and often there is a conflict/hang between the datasource wizard and the need to have the mdf in a dettached state within VS server explorer, not sure but the procedure to fix this seems to be to reboot, detach and re-attach the mdf in the Sql server Studio tool, re-apply the aspnet file permission on the web app folders (wonder should i be doing this in IIS instead), make sure the mdf within server explorer is detached, the it works anyway, getting real tired of the resulting delays and design time derailment, clues greatly appreciated, thanks sometimes i can use View in Browser when in VS05 form view and i wont get the aspnet folder permission error and other times i do. last thing, is it a bad idea to give aspnet full permission for the entire web applicaiton??
What is the best tool for converting data in to MSSQL 7.0? We get our data in dataflex format and currently use data junction to migrate the data into tables in sqlserver. Can DTS do this and also include and scrubbing or translation script?
