DataSource Controls :: Sql Table Relationships / To Create A Dependency Between The 2 Tables

May 3, 2010

I have a table that contains item data. If the item is a particular type further information exists to describe the item. The additional information isn't that heavy however the number of records in relation to the main file will be quite small (less than

So I have 2 scenarios:1) Put the additional data in the main table and take tha hit on storage

2) Create an additional table and link the 2 together

If we were talking huge amounts of data I can understand that 2) would be the obvious choice but given the simplicity should 1) be a consideration?

If 2) is the answer - is it possible to create a dependency between the 2 tables when the item is 'that' particular type. In other words wnsure the addition data is populated for the required items and not others.

How To Layout Tables And Relationships For MVC Project

Nov 22, 2010

So I am working on an MVC project to put to work the studying I have been doing. I am wrestling with the concept of Database Table relationships and foreign keys. I am working on a simple ecommerce site (displays products, shopping cart, user accounts..etc).

I have the following tables to start out with:

1) Products

2) Categories

I setup the Products and Categories tables to have a ProductId and CategoryId respectively. In my MySQL db, I created a FK on the Products Table to relate to the CategoryId field on the Categories table (I am not sure this was correct to begin).

My expectations for the way the database would handle the table relationship: I didn't want the DB to do anything with the products table if I deleted a category out of the Categories table, or vise versa. The only thing would be that the category field in a Product would be blank (or default) if their category was removed.

Finally, do I have to do anything in my entity classes such as in the Products class, add the ProductId to the Category.ProductId?

Eventually, when I Orders and Users to the project, I can see a relationship where each user -> many orders -> each order has many products -> and each product is in one category.

But I am having a hard time understanding how or if I should be setting up a Foreign key relationship in the two current tables of Products and Categories and if so how to setup my entity class in relation to that FK.

WebMatrix :: How To Define Relationships Between The Tables

Jul 14, 2010

I have been experimenting with WebMatrix, specifically the ability to connect to and use SQL CE data.

My question is:

When I am creating a new SQL Compact database with several tables, how do I define relationships between the tables?

The "Relationships" button in WebMatrix is always greyed out. Is that because it is still in Beta? Or am I missing something?

ADO.NET :: LINQ To Entity Error Seeing Relationships Across Multiple Tables?

Jan 24, 2011

I'm a newbie to this so bear with me. From what I've read online LINQ to Entity should see the relationships without having to specify the joins between multiple tables. I have a relationship that goes across 4 tables Employee, EmployeeDepartmentLink, EmployeeProjectLink, and Project. The idea is an employee can be in multiple departments and work on multiple projects with it being specified which department the employee is in for that project.

This is a C# MVC3 program connecting to a SQL database using VS 2010 Express.

I have no problem with running this query to find employees on a project:


Tring to do the reverse, finding projects that an employee worked on results in an error:


Error message: The specified type member 'EmployeeDepartmentLinks' is not supported in LINQ to Entities. Only initializers, entity members, and entity navigation properties are supported. So I have 2 questions,

1) Why would it work in one direction and not the other? I've played around with it for a couple days with the same results.

2) Does it matter that my primary key and foreign keys are not named the same since all the relationships are connected in SQL? Ex: in Employee (EmployeePK)--(EmployeeFK) in EmployeeDepartmentLink Trying different stuff in LINQPad I was able to get the 2nd query to work if I specified all the joins which I thought was not neccesary with LINQ to Entity. I converted an SQL query that I made on the server into a LINQ query below which works.

I have ASP.NET enviroment (C#) with SQL 2008 backend. I am using the ASP.NET membership provider. I need to create a table that contains member name, member role and third coumn (called "Registered for Conference"). I am using a button to initiate the action to call a stored procedure to write the selected value in the "Registered for Conference" column for the respective member.I know how to write the stored procedure, how to determine which user has processed their selection and how to write it to the "Registered for Conference" column of the table.I know that I can pull member name and member role with the following statement.

SELECT dbo.aspnet_Users.UserName, dbo.aspnet_Roles.RoleName
FROM dbo.aspnet_Roles INNER JOIN
dbo.aspnet_UsersInRoles ON dbo.aspnet_Roles.RoleId = dbo.aspnet_UsersInRoles.RoleId INNER JOIN
dbo.aspnet_Users ON dbo.aspnet_UsersInRoles.UserId = dbo.aspnet_Users.UserId

I need to understand how to create the table that will contain the member name, member role and third coumn (called "Registered for Conference"). This table cannot be a static table. In other words, this table needs to refect any updates to roles or members

SQL Server :: Database Design / Create A Separate Table Which Will Contain The Translations For All 50 Tables?

Sep 28, 2010

I am working on a multi-lingual application Assume the following:

Database has 50 tables and application has to support 5 languages

Which is the best way to design the database:

1. Include a langugae column for each table. Repeat the values for each language. Say i have a country table which has 100 countries in it. Then my design will contain 500 rows (100 for each langugae)

2. Create a separate table which will contain the translations for all the 50 tables in with a foreign key to the parent table.

Which is more efficient out of the above two.
