Pass In Structured Parameter to Typed DataSet


  • Is there a way to use a SQL Server user defined table type with a typed dataset in VB.NET?

    I want to configure my TableAdapter with the following SQL.  Where @ProductLabor is a user defined table type in SQL Server.  Notice, I also want to do a calculation and call it TotalDeptHours.

    SELECT L.Department, L.HourlyRate, L.MarkUp, L.LaborDescription, 
    	PL.DeptHours * L.HourlyRate * L.MarkUp AS TotalDeptHours
    FROM dbo.Labor AS L
    	INNER JOIN @ProductLabor as PL
    		ON L.Department = PL.Department

    I want to pass in the table type like this for example,

            Dim dt As New DataTable
            Dim ta As New dsPartsLaborTableAdapters.LaborTableAdapter
            Dim ds As New dsPartsLabor
            With Parts
                .Columns.Add("Department", GetType(String))
                .Columns.Add("DeptHours", GetType(Integer))
            End With
            Dim prm As SqlClient.SqlParameter = New SqlClient.SqlParameter("@ProductLabor", dt)
            With prm
                .SqlDbType = SqlDbType.Structured
                .TypeName = "dbo.udtt_Labor"
            End With
            ta.Fill(ds.Labor, prm)

  • The sql parameter token something like @xxx can be only applied after equality expression, something like:

    Select * From xxx where ……=@xxx

    So for your situation, you have to use string combination, which won't make the problem of SQL injection for this situation.
