EF 4.3 - Update related entity primary key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have an entity Order with sub entity OrderDetail which has OrderID and TypeID as primary key. If i want to change the TypeID later on, how should i proceed?

  • As a rule of thumb I'd say: if each DB table has a single, surrogate primary key column, all is well - whereas as soon as you are putting any other meaning into a PK than just being a unique row-identifier, you'd run into troubles.
