I have an insert table with identity specification set. And I getthis error. I'm using a stored procedure to store it. How do I correct it. I'm also using a details view on my insert page.

Forms Data Controls :: Error When Inserting Into Table - Cannot Insert Explicit Value For Identity Column In Table

Aug 11, 2010

I am working on a web app for an online photo album. It is the last project in Scott Mitchell's book: "ASP.Net 2.0 in 24 hours".

I am creating a page where users can enter new photo images. The functionality for uploading an image will come later. I am working on just inserting a new row into the Pictures table with an optional category, a required title and a required description.

I am getting an error when I try to insert a new row.

Here is a screenshot of the page with a shot of the dropdown list.

The Categories are user-specific. I am getting the correct values retrieved.


There are two pretty simple database tables involved here.

NOTE: The CategoryID and PIctureID are both autoincrement integer columns.


The page uses a DetailsView that uses a SqlDataSource that uses the Pictures table. (The DetailsView's Default Mode property is set to "Insert". The "Enable Inserting" checkbox is also checked.)

The dropdown list uses a dropdown control that uses a SqlDataSource that uses the Categories table.

When the "Insert" button is clicked the CategoryID value associated with selected (Category) Name on the dropdown list will be used along with the Title and Description values to insert a row in to the Pictures table. (If no Category value is selected, then a null value will be used for the CategoryID. This is OK because the CategoryID column in the Pictures table allows nulls.)

My problem is that I am getting this error:

Cannot insert explicit value for identity column in table 'Pictures' when IDENTITY_INSERT is set to OFF.

(FYI: I have the full version of both Visual Studio and SQL Server.)

Here is my source code for the page:

SQL Server :: Where Is Statement In XML Explicit

Dec 27, 2010

I've build a query, but the where statement is doing strange things. First my query:

select * from
SELECT 1 as Tag, null as Parent, row_number() OVER (ORDER BY tblOccasion.ID DESC) AS [tblOccasion!1!rownum], FROM tblOccasionwhere tblOccasion.UserID = @UserName and ((tblOccasion.MerkDesc like '%' + @search + '%')or(tblOccasion.UitvoeringDesc like '%' + @search + '%')or(tblOccasion.UitvoeringDesc like '%' + @search + '%'))
) AS A where a.[tblOccasion!1!rownum] BETWEEN (@startRowIndex) AND (@startRowIndex+@pageSize)
order by a.[tblOccasion!1!MerkDesc!Element],a.[tblOccasion!1!TypeDesc!Element],a.[tblOccasion!1!UitvoeringDesc!Element]

But the result should be ordered by Merkdesc, then TypeDesc, and then as last the uitvoeringDesc.
So for testing i only used the MerkDesc. The strange thing is that i get the result:


But this was page 1, on page 2 (paging) you got BMW again... so he takes the first 5 rows ore something and then the order. But i like that he first orders it by MerkDesc and then picks the first 5. How can i change that, i can't add a Order by in the inline sql statement i get this error: Msg 1033, Level 15, State 1, Procedure MijnAdvertenties, Line 47 De ORDER BY-component is ongeldig in weergaven, in line functies, afgeleide tabellen en algemene tabelexpressies, tenzij ook TOP of FOR XML is opgegeven.

C# - How To Insert A Copy Of A Row (with A New Identity) Using LINQ To SQL

Feb 16, 2011

I have a number of tables that together make up a "Test" that somebody can take. There are multiple types (scripts) of Test a person can take. I'm working on an Edit function that will allow somebody to edit the Test Questions. I want these edited questions to show up on all new Tests of that type, but still show the old questions when viewing past test scores.

To do this each "Test" has a TestId auto-increment identity (along with its name). When a test is edited I want to make a copy of the test with a new TestId and present the questions for editing.

So what is the best way to make the copy and insert it into my table using LINQ to SQL? This:

DataContext db = new DataContext(ConnectionString);
//Copy old test into identical new test but with a different script ID
var oldScript = db.TestScripts.Single(ds => ds.TestScriptId == oldScriptID);
var newScript = oldScript;

of course tells me that I Cannot add an entity that already exists.

Is the only way to do this to go through every column in the TestScript and copy it manually, then insert it, and the database will give it a new Id?
