VS 17 : : Dataset : TableAdapter : SQL statement RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Morning,

    To solve the problem I had I drop and create a view on ms sql server

    I was wondering if there is a way to change the sql statement of a table adapter programmatically.

    Than you all

    dataset view

  • There is zero reasons to drop and recreate your view.

    1. In SSMS (SQL-Server Management Studio), edit the view.
    2. Back in VS, data source window, select the view. select configure with data source window.
    3. If there for instance a new field e.g. as shown below, select it and finish up.
    4. Now from the data source window place the field onto the form.

    If you simply modified the SQL e.g. added UPPER no re-configuration is needed as done above.

  • Hello, 

    In your dataset_print.Design.cs (C#, VB - similar) you have  two namespaces:

    - <default app namespace>

    - <default app namespace>.dataset_printTableAdapters

    In the second namespace you have class wo_mainTableAdapter. This class have property Adapter and commands are available through the Adapter property.

                wo_mainTableAdapter da = new wo_mainTableAdapter();
                da.Adapter.DeleteCommand.CommandText = "DELETE wo_main WHERE 1 <> 1";

    Sincerely, Highly skilled coding monkey.

    I have a good one : Work Order data can be on a history table or current table, some times even on a archive table.

    the sales order linked to that work order can be open, or already paid, both data can be on different tables, etc, etc, etc.

    I use a view as a Report source.

    Thanks for answering my post
