SQL DB entry not updated RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi i'm still learning all these.

    Have a piece of code which doesn't update the database entry. This is the simplified version, i can step into these lines in VS 2012. But when i close VS 2012, opens the Sql management studio, the fields are still holding old values.

    Must be something simple, but just cannot figure out. Any help appreciated.

    if (MyGlobals.customerEntities.TableMfis.Any(x => x.personName == "John"))
        // find this entry in DB
        TableMfi bMfi = MyGlobals.customerEntities.TableMfis.Single(y => y.personName == "John");

        // m_date[0] is sth. like "11-04-2013"
        System.DateTime todayDate = Convert.ToDateTime(m_date[0]);
        // update
        bMfi.mfiDate = todayDate;
        bMfi.mfiValue = m_mfi[0];

  • Hi ningji;

    Can you post the connection string found in app.config/webconfig, if the connection string has a username and password change them to xxx so that they do not show this information.

    Also is this a Code First or Database First project.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
